The future home of the Brightline train announced Tuesday it has added two new tenants to MiamiCentral’s flagship office building: global media and real estate enterprise Cisneros, and construction firm Moss & Associates.

Also announced Tuesday, Miami-based H3 Hospitality will be the exclusive leasing agent for retail, food and beverage in the 11-acre MiamiCentral.

Earlier this month, the project’s 190,000-square foot Class A office space, known as Two MiamiCentral, added consulting firm Ernst & Young LLP, Regus, the world’s largest provider of flexible workplaces, and Florida East Coast Industries as its first three anchor tenants.


“With the addition of Cisneros and Moss, we are now well ahead of schedule and have leased approximately 60 percent of the available office space,” said John Guitar, senior vice president of business development for MiamiCentral and Brightline, in a release.

Cisneros, which focuses on media and entertainment, digital advertising, real estate and social leadership, will move from its Coral Gables office to the top two floors of the 10-story Two MiamiCentral.

Fort Lauderdale-based Moss & Associates will open an office on the seventh floor of the office building.

“Downtown Miami is experiencing a development boom, including a number of projects that we are directly involved in,” said Bob Moss, chairman and CEO of Moss & Associates, in a release. “We felt strongly that we should have a presence in the center of the development and that is Two MiamiCentral.”

The office building will begin 120 feet above street level to accommodate a train platform for the Brightline. The plaza level will feature a fitness center, conference center and open-air terrace.

Both the office building and MiamiCentral will open in summer 2017.

Also included in the Two MiamiCentral development is an on-site marketplace called Central Fare, which will include six restaurants and 20 kiosks. Bravo TV’s Top Chef celebrity cooks Brian and Michael Voltaggio have signed up with a 10,000 square-foot restaurant named Monger. Local favorites Azucar Ice Cream and Midtown’s Blackbrick Chinese will also be tenants.

Blanca Commercial Real Estate is the center’s office leasing agent.

MiamiCentral will include more than 80,000 square feet of retail and entertainment space on two levels along Northwest First Avenue between Northwest Third and Northwest Eight Streets. The entire development, designed as the hub for the planned rail service between Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Orlando, encompasses five towers of office, retail, dining, hotel, and residential.
