Days after the Virgin announced its investment in Brightline's rail service, Sir Richard Branson unveiled plans for a palm-tree inspired design for a Virgin Voyages cruise terminal in the Port of Miami. Construction of Virgin Voyage’s 100,000-square-foot terminal — designed by local architects Arquitectonica — will begin next year. Approval from the Miami-Dade Commission is expected in the coming weeks. PortMiami director and CEO Juan Kuryla said money for the terminal will come from Virgin and the port’s capital fund, made up of fees from shipping and cruise companies.
