Friends of the Underline Host UnderLounge Event in Brickell
The Underline, Miami’s new 10 mile linear park that will be installed underneath the Metrorail tracks from Brickell to Dadeland South, is inviting everyone to a free festival at underneath the Brickell Station. The event is called The Underlounge and will take place Saturday, October 15 from noon-6pm.
There will be activities for all ages including face painting, the world’s longest mini-golf hole, interactive chalk art madala, pop-up dog park & pet costume contest, caricature artist, balloon animals, kids play, fitness classes, yoga, and of course – a DJ. I already have my dog’s camel costume ready to go.
The Underline is being designed by James Corner Field Operations, the same designer of the popular High Line in New York City. The $120 million project will be funded by donations from developers (including Swire’s $600,000 contribution), impact fees from developments built within 1,000 feet of the metrorail, private donations and was recently approved as an EB-5 project.
Construction is set to begin next fall on the Brickell segment. Initial funding for this segment was the first to be received and we are very much looking forward to utilizing this space!
