Miami’s Underline: Plans Revealed

Website Pic

 

 

 

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.

Christian Liaigre Book Launch

Website pic

As a fan of stylish interior design, I was very excited to share in the momentum around the launch of Christian Liaigre’s newest book “Liaigre 12 Projects.” The book release took place this week at the author’s showroom in Miami’s chic Design District. Hosted in collaboration with Cultured Magazine, the designer’s iconic style was center stage. The evening reviewed the French designer’s latest work, from Belgian beach retreats and sea-roaming yachts to townhouses in New York and London. Described as a cocktail-table tome by Architectural Digest, his third book reveals the designer’s ability to cater to diverse needs, combining luxury and comfort in a multitude of different contexts while maintaining hallmarks of his signature aesthetic. It’s no surprise that the designer chose to unveil his latest offering in Miami, a growing hub of interior design innovation. With Miami Design / Basel launching later this month in Switzerland, our city’s dominance in art, culture, and design continues to grow.

The Writer’s Room at The Betsey in South Beach

 Website Pic

My firm’s Spring edition of ONE Life magazine explores the Writer’s Room at The Betsey, a boutique hotel in South Beach. The hidden landmark connects artists to the local community. The creative haven or “Writer’s Room” at The Betsey nurtures and advances the cultural scene in Miami. The program centers on philanthropy, arts, culture and education, with a special focus on the literary arts. Coordinated by owner Jonathan Plutzik, the cultural programming is not a gimmick or a way to stand out among the sleek hotels lining Ocean Drive. It is a passion inspired by his own literary family.

More than 250 writers have been in residence in the Writer’s Room since its inception in 2012. As the only program of its kind in Miami, the Writer’s Room has received international attention and support, most notably from the Knight Foundation. The Miami-based foundation provided a Knight Arts Challenge grant of $60,000 as start-up funding for the project.  The Betsy’s latest nod comes from the Academy of American Poets, which partnered with the hotel to fund a residency program for winners of AAP’s James Laughlin Award.

The community will be invited to meet the award-winning poets during intimate gatherings at The Betsy, the most intriguing of which are hosted in the underground B Bar style like a 1920s speakeasy. In its fourth season, the Writer’s Room is booking residencies for 2016 and beyond. The skyrocketing demand triggered an expansion into a second Writer’s Room scheduled for completion in late 2016. In the meantime, Miamians will continue to experience the talent of writers and poets of diverse backgrounds at this dynamic Boutique Hotel.
