Beachwalk Spanning Entire City Of Miami Beach Coming Soon, After City Approves Final Piece

The entire length of beach in Miami Beach will soon have a beachwalk, after the city voted last week to move forward with the final piece.

Residents and guests will be able to walk, run, and bike from the South Pointe Park at the southern tip of the city all the way to the northern border with Surfside upon completion.

In total, the beachwalk will be 7 miles long.

Last week, commissioners gave the green light to begin the final stretch of beachwalk, at a cost of $4.5 million, according to the Herald. It will run from from 79th Street to 87th Terrace.

There’s also a rebuilt park coming as part of the plans. Yesterday, the Miami Beach Design Review Board voted to approve a rebuild of the North Beach Oceanside Park next to the new beachwalk.

Replacement of the wooden boardwalk with a beachwalk between 24th and 45th streets is expected to be complete in summer 2021.

The final span from 79th Street to 87th Terrace will be completed in spring 2022, at which point the entire 7-mile beachwalk will be open.

That makes too much sense. They rather spend tax money on tunnels, monorails, and double deck freeways.

No it doesn’t, especially when your beloved Metromover goes right over this space and ruins it.

“No it doesn’t, especially when your beloved Metromover goes right over this space and ruins it”

The problem with people like you is that you can’t see the forest for the trees. Somebody said tunnels and you brought that BS hook line and sinker. What make you think this city can build a tunnel network correctly when see people arguing about the Smart Plan? The Metromover was built correctly, it’s the lost and dumbfounded people controlling Miami now who make it seem complicated concerning how to do anything with a very simple system.

South Beach needs a BayWalk! Love the little strip behind the Flamingo but it needs to span much more.

yes. People usually walk on the edges, bikes more to the centers. Yet a few people will ‘doddle’ everywhere so be careful. And if walking you will notice a few inconsiderate cyclist as well .

That’s why the poster said “GET OUT OF THE WAY!.. DON’T YOU SEE ME ON MY BIKE BEHIND YOU!!!

I know it was said in jest, but that is the thinking of a lot people riding bikes in Miami.

Miami beach can agree to do this no problem done! Meanwhile Miami cant even get a decent river walk done! There is no excuse for that! Tampa has one of the most beautiful river walks in Florida… even Jacksonville has a nice river walk! Practically every big city near water has one, why is Miami so damn behind everyone else?

Because they’re cheap. They want developers to do it. We know developers will only provide the minimum. What a shame.

This is dumb. The vast majority of the land along the bay and river in Miami is privately owned, making it a much more complicated situation. You can’t force private property owners to build a public baywalk without paying them (crazy expensive) or having some leverage (which requires the city to wait for the private owners to ask for approval to build something, which is the city’s current plan).

Meanwhile, the land along the beach in Miami Beach is all publicly owned, so it’s infinitely easier & cheaper for them to build out their beachwalk.

Save the bullshit for somebody else! There is plenty county owned land that could have a river walk and does not! All this privately owned land you talk about was not owed years ago and you know this!

the more pedestrian walks the better.

the only thing I dislike are the huge buildings (temporary??) they build on the actual beach.

buildings should be on the other side of the streets, not on the beach.

It’s private land on the beach side which you have no use or say over, as it should be comrade.

This looks great! I wish they would plant up all the sand dunes with palms and plants. It would look great and also be homes for wildlife.

When the people who tell me it’s a crisis start acting like it’s a crisis…I’ll listen. Meanwhile, a lot of those people keep buying sea level real estate from Martha’s Vineyard on down to Miami Beach.
