The Underline Public Meeting: Preview & Give Feedback Of The Brickell Backyard Plans
If you have been curious about the plans of The Underline, Miami’s upcoming 10 mile linear park, now is your opportunity. The Miami-Dade Transportation & Public Works Departments, and Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Departments will be holding a public meeting this Thursday, Janaury 19 with the Friends of The Underline initiative.
During the meeting, the preliminary design proposals for Phase 1: Brickell Backyard will be discussed by the James Corner Field Operations design team. The Brickell Backyard is the name for the span of The Underline that runs under the Metrorail tracks from the Miami River to SW 13th Street (Coral Way). The site is currently grossly underused, with only a collection of bus stops and a temporary outdoor gym. Along the Brickell Station, there is a beautiful natural coral rock ledge that will be incorporated into the park.
The Underline is a proposed 10-mile greenway with urban biking and pedestrian trails and park amenities beneath the county’s Metrorail, in Miami-Dade County’s Rapid Transit Right of Way, between the Miami River north of Brickell and Dadeland South stations. The project’s vision is to enhance connectivity, mobility, sustainability and biking safety for hundreds of thousands of Miami-Dade residents and visitors.
To see the plans in detail, visit Southside Elementary on Thursday night from 5:30pm-8pm. The meeting will be held in the cafeteria. Southside Elementary is on the corner of SW 1st Avenue & 13th Street, just across the street from Infinity at Brickell. There is street parking around Infinity & SLS Brickell, along with a surface lot across the street. If you are a transit rider, the Brickell Station Metromover & Metrorail stops are just across the street to the west of the school. We’ll see you there!
