Second-Ranked Signature Bridge Concept Features Dancing Sculptures

Below is the second-ranked bid for the Signature Bridge submitted by the Fluor-Astaldi-MCM-led team, which lost by just half a point.

The design is said to inspired by dancers, with two 350-foot sculptures that would have been installed in front of the Performing Arts Center.

According to the proposal, the alignment of the bridge would be much further away from the Performing Arts Center than FDOT’s template, and would also result in more green space than the minimum set by FDOT. A local aesthetic committee, which included the Arsht Center’s director, ranked the proposal highest.

As with the top-ranked bid, the proposal includes a walkway with plazas and green space underneath.

The team is said to be preparing a formal bid protest.

I like the winning Foutains bridge design more, but if this one has more green space then I am all for that. Let’s see what happens with the formal protest.

Ok the bridge idea is so useless since we don’t need a bridge, we need a tunnel. But let’s say we already lost that battle. I believe they picked the best design for what they received since most of them, or maybe all of them were a little lame. However, the park design is total garbage. I don’t know what you all think but on my opinion every time they try to do a landscape project in Miami we end up with washed down versions of the original intention. Look at the redone of Biscayne Boulevard, Museum Park, or even the latest works at Bicentennial Park. I hear every single of these projects have cost hundreds of millions of dollars, and the end result lacks on urban scale and quality. Let’s look at Boston, Chicago, NYC, DC, or even Houston; all these cities have better parks. I am personally sick the red paver, the palm trees, the so called ‘public art’ and the color change led lighting. No more cheese, they need to hire a real landscape firm to a good job…and by the way the ‘Heritage Trail’ name is so obviously ‘politically correct’ that it ends up being incorrect….just… Read more »

I agree… They should call it something else. A more exotic Miamian name would be more appropriate than this wannabe politically correct title.

Hahahahahaha
You hit it on the nose.
Heritage trail?
What heritage? Miami is a young city with very little heritage. This name is more appropriate for places like Philadelphia, Boston or Virginia.
Please change that name. Nobody will pay attention to that name. Knowing people in Miami it will be called the Park under the … bridge

I don’t care what it’s called, if they build it, sooner or later it’s going to have a fence around it anyway.

I don’t like this design it looks like something from the middle east. I doesn’t feel like something that should be in Miami but the winning proposal does.

I like this design the best, it is not overwhelming in its design. Dancers is perfect for its location. Park and all is what that area needs. Winning design is just to much. No grace like this design.

What is cheesy?
Please be a bit more creative and mindful this is Miami. That adjective fits in apt cities like Little Rock or Kansas City. Speak the vernacular and not try to copy
