The company announced Thursday that it received the steel delivery over a two-day period. In all, seven trucks delivered a total of 150 tons of structural steel beams, the company said.

The station, called MiamiCentral, encompasses nearly 3 million square feet and includes two sites: a nine-acre transportation hub in downtown Miami just east of the Miami-Dade County Hall, and a two-acre site in Historic Overtown. The station is set to open in mid 2017.

Last month, All Aboard released the first details about the planned “urban marketplace” set to open at the 11-acre station development in the heart of downtown Miami.

The 50,000-square-foot marketplace, dubbed Central Fare, will feature a group of celebrity chefs including Bryan and Michael Voltaggio, Richard Hales of Blackbrick Chinese, and Andres Barrientos and James Bowers of Miami Smokers.

In May, officials with MiamiCentral released the names of the two tenants set to anchor the development’s flagship office building in downtown Miami.

Ernst & Young LLP, which specializes in assurance, tax, transaction and advisory services, and Regus, a provider of flexible workplaces, are set to move into the office tower, officials said.
