Photo: A New Stretch Of Miami’s Riverwalk Has Just Opened At River Landing

Miami’s Riverwalk recently added a major new piece.

The newly built section is behind River Landing, the massive shopping, office and apartment complex that opened in the past few months.

The photo shows a healthy amount of shade trees planted on both sides of the riverwalk, in addition to palms.

A restaurant row is planned in front on the lower level of the development in front of the riverwalk. The developer has said that there is strong interest from tenants, and that lease announcements would come soon.

Sadly, the riverwalk doesn’t connect anywhere in either direction.

To the east, support columns for the 836 expressway are in the way of any riverwalk. FDOT is adding new piers to support the new double-deck highway it is building, but has promised that it won’t impede a potential new riverwalk there any further.

To the west are older buildings, also without a riverwalk.

I walked on this walk just few days ago and it’s incredible how much potential this could have if it could be extended along the river towards downtown and connected to the bay. The river and the bay are all extremely undervalued assets that could make Miami stand apart even more from other coastal cities.

Im sorry but they completely f*cked this project up…there is no reason why restaurants, table ands chars are not setup along the river walk to give people that Miami daylight and nightlife type of lifestyle with the weather that was a complete miss period

If you would have actually visited first you would have noticed that they do indeed have outdoor seating facing the river. The space for the restaurants are elevated to provide some privacy since the Riverwalk is open to everyone. Considering what was there and any of the cheaper alternatives that could have been built, this project is a huge improvement for the area.

By each bridge at river walk is where homeless and drugs are. Not enough enforcement. Good Luck

It won’t take long for those benches and ledge to be destroyed by street skateboarders and homeless bodily functions.

So in other words, “A large public patio space has opened along the river”

So its a walkway to and from nowhere.
Typical Miami urban planning.
Looks nice but is totally useless.

the idea is that as development in the area and along the river move forward it will connect. Rather than waiting for the area to catch up, they are thinking ahead.
