First Shade Trees Planted At Miami Worldcenter’s New 7th Street Promenade As Developer Prepares To Build On All Sides

Landscapers are now planting shade trees in the area where Miami Worldcenter’s 7th Street Promenade will soon open, on what was once a roadway for automotive traffic.

The developer has plans to build on all sides of the new promenade.

On the south side of the promenade, contractors are now nearing completion of the 44-story Caoba with 444 apartments.

Also on the south side of the promenade, a construction permit is pending for a second 40-story tower at Caoba with 411 apartments, along with 4,103 square feet of retail. Miami’s building department still hasn’t approved it yet, however.

Between the two new towers, a total of 10,591 square feet of retail will line the south side of the promenade. In addition, there will be 10,591 square feet of full service restaurant.

On the north side of the promenade, plans were submitted last month for a new development on what is known as Block E. Miami’s Planning & Zoning Department is now reviewing the proposal.

Just saw them over weekend. Gorgeous huge oak trees. But they are only on the north side of building, none on south side. Also crammed in with way too many palms. Not a coherent design at all. Go walk it and then reply.

Wish they were banyan trees

Love banyan trees but believe they’re actually illegal to plant in Miami-Dade nowadays.

Wow, that’s going to eliminate the future canopy of Miami Dade and destroy the sub tropical image 🙁

Really? why is that?

Oscar

It’s non-native, grows quickly and to a massive size (part of what made them attractive to plant in the first place), and competes with native hardwoods.

Disclaimer: I know basically nothing about this — just did a little research.

don’t think there is much competition with native hardwoods on that sidewalk with wall to wall asphalt and concrete 🙂

Exactly. Miami needs shade. I think it is beautiful. 44 is a lucky number for someone.

Banyans make a mess and despite being root-y, is easily uprooted in hurricanes. It’s best to preserve where specimens are established.

Also a very shallow root system which is not ideal in a hurricane/high wind prone environment.

If they are so susceptible to being knocked over, why are there dozens of 90+ year old Banyans lining coral way and sw 3 ave?

While the overall MWC hasn’t been as grand as promised, it’s definitely doing wonders for that area.

Anything built in this area will enhance the pedestrian experience
