Brightline West Palm Beach Station
The West Palm Beach station is ideally located between the dynamic downtown—the city’s main street, Clematis Street—and cultural destinations such as CityPlace and the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts. Zyscovich utilized previously completed master plans for West Palm Beach as the basis for identifying the station locations that were eventually selected.
The station echoes the Fort Lauderdale station with cast-in-place concrete V-braces and stacked concrete-and glass volumes that comprise the station’s lobby, ticket kiosks, restrooms, luggage handling, and station support areas. Its shape reflects the overall geometry of Miami’s Central Station. After purchasing their tickets and checking their luggage at the ground level, departing passengers ascend the escalator to a pedestrian bridge that spans the station’s access road. Escalators bring departing passengers down from the lounge and onto the train platform below. Arriving passengers exit the trains at grade level, where there is a pedestrian link to the neighborhood trolley, and Tri-Rail and Amtrak station connections.
