First Landscaping Now Being Installed At Miami Worldcenter, Promenade Under Construction

First Landscaping Now Being Installed At Miami Worldcenter, Promenade Under Construction

Miami Worldcenter is getting closer to opening its first buildings, and contractors have begun installing landscaping in some areas.

In the block surrounding the Caoba apartment tower, date palms were planted this week. Caoba will welcome its first move-ins in the first quarter of 2019, pushed back from an original plan to open before the end of this year.

As of yesterday, no shade trees had been planted.

In front of the Caoba tower will be the Seventh Street Promenade, which now appears to be under construction. It will eventually be lined with restaurants and shops on the ground floor of both Caoba and other future developments.

Worldcenter also submitted this week more details of plans for a mural by Berlin abstract artist Franz Ackermann. The work, which will be called “Sailing Hammocks,” will be discussed by Miami’s Urban Development Review Board at a meeting later this month.

Ficus trees are notorious for damaging streets, sidewalks, and sewer systems (their roots have been known to show up in toilets). Other than that, it’s a good list and all can handle hurricanes if cared for and pruned when necessary. Shade trees are great for cooling cityscapes.

What’s up with the narrow sidewalks and the buffer? That buffer should be between the cars and the people, not other way around.
