I love the contemporary design of this project! It looks absolutely beautiful and the tree cover in that area looks amazing as well!

Now that’s how you design and build an area. Mix structures and designs like that in Wynwood and the place will benefit tremendously.

I guess not enough as it is still there. Great location but good luck getting any sunlight in the canyon of parking garages.

Its still there. Best seen “not seen” in-between the two cranes in the 4th and 5th photo. Its the void in the middle. It’s surrounded by the Parking Garage that’s still under construction.

Still there. It’s just not visible due to the heights of the development.

>> 2,400 parking spaces

LOL, LOL…. No, LOL.

Okay, done laughing. Build it and they will drive. Can’t wait to here the politicians complain about “traffic” in the future.

Wow.. don’t build any structures with parking because people will walk twenty blocks to get to where they wanna go in MiamiDade’s dreadful humidity.

Dude, you’re living in La La land.

I am pretty sure that the city of Coral Gables demanded the parking. The residents surrounding the project undoubtedly do not want any street parking as to not interfere with them. Remember the nearest metro rail station is 1.5 miles from Miracle Mile. With a round trip of about three miles you bet there is going to be 2,400 parking spaces.

Guys do you realize the % of people near a Metrorail line?
The dream you guys have about Miami is so far fetched. This is a city built for the automobile whether we like it or not.
Even most Metrorail stations with the exception of 3 or 4 were built for people to drive to them.
Come down to reality.
Forget walkability here.
Average temp all yearround is 88° when you factor the humidity. But even with Southern California weather, it’s not feasible in a city of this size and the lack if density

Miami is car dependent, but it’s not car centric; very important distinction.

most of Miami was built for pedestrians not for cars. Miami is not like LA or Houston which are cities full of wide avenues and expressways. not having good public transportation is a different story. but that can be improved with the smart plan. in Miami you can find a lot shopping centers within walking distance and can do some errands on foot. i live in a the suburbs and i see people walking everyday even during the summer they may not take long wals but they do go out for walks

How will we ever accomplish a walkable city when it takes 20 years to get any public transportation off the ground. They have to do all these studies for years and then funding is nonexistent! Stop complaining and do something about it then I’ll support less parking garages!

In addition to the Plaza, there is also Douglas Entrance and the Alhambra area. That whole Douglas Road corridor needs Metrorail.

I always thought that the orange line terminus at the Airport could be expanded down along 37th ave with stops at the new stadium if built, the dog track area that just announced new development in the shopping plaza across from it as well as a stop on Miracle Mile. I know it’s a pipe dream but it would target several densely populated areas.

That nice trolley from the Metrorail station to Miracle Mile goes right by this development, no? I am glad to see so much office investment in pleasant Miami-Dade communities. Lots of construction jobs, as well as white-collar work. Tell your kids to study their passion but also to take enough accounting credits to take a CPA exam!
