A design team has presented an updated vision for a project to revitalize 41st Street in Miami Beach.
The new proposal calls for “oases” at several points along the street, paved with bright Miami Beach Red Concrete with a salt rock finish.
Benches, bike racks, trash receptacles, and street lamps at the oases would be painted a pinkish color to match the concrete.
As with an earlier version of the plan, some on-street parking and palm trees would be removed, with shade trees added to make the street more walkable and welcoming.
The updated schematic design package was presented on December 8, 2022 by design firm Brooks + Scarpa, to the city’s Blue Ribbon 41 Street Committee.
The project will now be subdivided into three zones, in order to get more specific feedback from residents and businesses.
Financing of $15 million for the project is coming from general obligation bonds issued by the city.
