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.
