I agree, Eviva Overtown or TAMI is the design that Overtown should be striving for

Eviva looks so warm and inviting. The TAMI looks cold by comparison.

Great proposal! This area is still very unsafe so these projects can’t come soon enough!

This is a great area for new affordable housing, still accessible by metro to the luxury housing and business district in Brickell.

Great to see that the CRA is willing to go with some modern designs and still keep up with the times and architecture

Most of these are the same cheap and nasty mediocrity common in past ten or so years, and will age poorly.

The color/pattern of Tacolcy Economic Development Corp. – Legacy Overtown are HIDEOUS and don’t belong in Miami. It looks so tribal and third-world. I hope they are required to do a redesign.

What’s with the Rastafarian roadway at Integral – Eviva Overtown? I like bringing in culture, but this pattern looks like something you’d see on a beanie hat. Can they put in something more refined and less cliche/stereotypical to represent the community.

Bronze statues of instrumental figures like Samy Davis Jr, MLK or Aretha Franklin – all with ties to the area—not a tacky Rasta design. https://www.coastlinestoskylines.com/black-history-in-miami/

How about a walk of fame of all the successful black figures in America? I don’t think I’ve ever seen one such walk of fame and people would come from all over the world to see the stars ⭐️

Anything by the famous African American fine artist Kehinde Wiley – he does the most incredible portraits of black subjects with rich backdrops.

An oversized swan statute made of black marble. Have you seen the black history museum in DC?

How about a building inspired by the black history museum? This shape would look cool in Miami too. https://www.viator.com/Washington-DC-attractions/National-Museum-of-African-American-History-and-Culture/d657-a25234

Good Bread Alley is perfect for an alley in Opa Locka.

Tami and Jazz look the best – rest look like subsidized housing and will not transition well as the neighborhood evolves

All new buildings should be required to mask the machinery on the roofs like in these renderings. It’s really ugly to see all the machinery exposed

The Good Bread Alley design looks so disgusting and hideous. Wow. Good thing they didn’t choose that proposal.

Integral – Eviva Overtown would have been a solid choice, but why did they have no ruin it with some loud murals?
