You’ve heard of NYC’s Highline. In the near future, Miami may answer with their own approach to the popular pedestrian walkway. The project is being called The Underline. Developers & supporters have presented ideas for a linear park stretching underneath the Metrorail from Brickell all the way to Dadeland South in an effort to harness the community space that is currently unused and rather stark.
Master planners, James Corner Field Ops and the Friends of The Underline have presented designs with 2 wide parallel paths ideal for bikers and pedestrians. Lights, landscaping, and activity centers including bike tune-up stops would create a breath of fresh air needed in these growing communities which intersect with the trail. It would also be divided up into “character zones” with special zones dedicated to neighboring areas and the needs of residents there. For a full look at vision of this trail versus what exists today- review photos here.
As Miami continues to emerge as an urban hub, we applaud city officials who hope to encourage our rich culture with a diverse offering of communal space connecting city dwellers with their surroundings. Reach out to the Susan Gale Group to learn more about joining this growing community.
