Brightline (All Aboard Florida)

Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, Orlando, Florida

Florida East Coast Industries is a successor company of the Florida East Coast Railway that Henry Flagler established in 1885 when he purchased a short-line railroad between Jacksonville, Florida, and St. Augustine. Flagler gradually extended the rails south toward Miami, spurring development along the way. By 1912, the railroad extended all the way to Key West. Compelled by the same pioneering spirit that drove Henry Flagler, Florida East Coast Industries is utilizing the same railroad infrastructure that he built, to establish a new, privately owned and operated express intercity passenger rail service called All Aboard Florida. Spanning from Miami to Orlando, with stops in Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach, the new express train has the potential to expand to Tampa and Jacksonville. 

Zyscovich Architects and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) were selected by Florida East Coast Industries to be the architects of four intermodal stations located in the downtowns of Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach, and at the Orlando International Airport’s future South Terminal. Each station is designed to serve Florida residents, business travelers, and tourists. The Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach stations are master planned to grow into transit?oriented developments (TOD’s), that will activate the downtowns of each location and provide easy access to existing and future transit systems, including international airports and seaports.
