Embracing Our Surroundings

Miami Worldcenter is proud to be part of a burgeoning area that has already benefitted from major public and private investments. We will be active members of our community, helping to continue its growth and prosperity.

Frost Museum of Science
The Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science is finally open and we have to admit, it’s pretty impressive. With four buildings and 250,000 square feet to explore, conquering the entire museum can be a feat. That’s why we’ve rounded up the top five things you won’t want to miss when visiting the new Frost Science Museum.

 

1. LASERsHOW: Light, Color and Geometry
Frost Museum of Science Laser Lasers
Encounter light in an entirely new way through an engaging experience in this four station gallery. Each station offers laser demonstrations that show you how light is bounced, bent, diffracted or recombined.

 

2. MeLaβ
Frost Museum of Science melab me lab
Exercise your senses in the most interactive space of the Frost Museum of Science. The entire family can get a MeLab card, choose an avatar and collect stamps as they come across the different learning stations in the lab. Or, just moonwalk across the interactive dance floor – that works too!

 

3. The (stunning) Aquarium
Frost Museum of Science oculus aquarium
You’ve probably already seen this on your Instagram feed but trust us when we tell you – the 13 foot wide oculus lens at the bottom of the 500,000 gallon Gulf Stream Aquarium is a sight you won’t want to miss. Take note, people tend to camp out under the oculus. So, consider a membership and plan your visit during member-only hours!

 

4. Feathers to the Stars
Frost Museum of Science
From animal flight to humans going airborne and space exploration, this exhibition covers everything aerodynamic. Learn about birds’ biomechanics, use a launcher to fly a paper airplane and land a spacecraft on Mars. Oh, there’s also a 30 foot dinosaur!

 

5. The Rooftop
Frost Museum of Science view
Pet stingrays, hang out with rescued birds and check out the top of the immense Gulf Stream Aquarium. While you’re up here, be sure to take in the spectacular views of Downtown Miami and Biscayne Bay. They even have viewing scopes!

Miami Moves to Put People First: Biscayne Green

One of the centerpieces of our Miami Worldcenter plan is a pedestrian-friendly promenade. A space where residents and visitors can stroll, window shop, attend a yoga class and grab an ice cream cone. This month, Downtown Miami has the opportunity is getting a first-hand look at what could be.

Biscayne Green

The 20 day pilot project has transformed the Biscayne Park Metromover station and two Biscayne Boulevard parking pods to the north in to active public space.  101 parking spaces have been covered in sod, turf, mulch and paint to create a dog park, playground, stage and lounge.

Events planned for the space include:

  • January 14th, Taste of Downtown from 8-10 pm – Downtown Miami’s culinary masters will be sharing tasty bites.
  • January 19th, Flamenco Al Fresco from 7-10pm – Learn to dance flamenco with the Arsht Center.
  • January 22nd, Bike305 Community Bike Ride and Breakfast Refuel from 9 to 1pm – Celebrate a morning bike ride with a tasty brunch.
  • January 26th, Biscayne Green Last Hoorah from 7 to 10pm – The final event promises to close the project with a bang.

Biscayne Green is a project of the Miami Downtown Development Authority and was funded through a grant from the Knight Foundation and Miami Foundation.  The installation hopes to build support for a long-term project that reclaims four parking pods and two traffic lanes.
