All Aboard Florida
The nearly billion dollar passenger rail service, between Miami and Orlando, is intended to transform intercity travel. Focused on improving efficiencies and offering a sustainable, cost-effective means for travel, the project entails a connected network of spaces and streetscapes that interweave transit facilities and private development into a larger sense of neighborhood. EDSA’s approach to transforming the public realm experience is the creation of a dynamic, multi-use environment that aesthetically and functionally integrates the project into communities along the corridor. Promoting connectivity and pedestrian accessibility, the design reinforces a sense of place with active and passive uses, civic features, public art and a mix of development types. Once completed, All Aboard Florida will be the first privately owned, operated and maintained passenger rail system in the United States.
EDSA is addressing the public realm, open spaces and access circulation associated with the Miami station as well as collaborating on a design vision and framework for the delivery and maintenance of this high quality transportation corridor. As the landscape architect of record for the Miami station, EDSA is providing conceptual design and design development services and will continue on through construction period services.
