Related Group Continues To Push For Biscayne Line With New Website, Facebook Page

The Biscayne Line now has a website, Facebook page, and PR team.

The Related Group is campaigning for the creation of a public bay walk through Edgewater, a wide pedestrian promenade with benches, art, shade trees, and occasional parks which they call the Biscayne Line. It will be a major step forward for the urban growth, and pedestrian accessibility, of the entire neighborhood, making the entire waterfront a completely public amenity. A survey they commissioned from Arquitectonica (above and below the jump) maps out the current waterfront conditions, suggesting what can easily be implemented in the near future, and what might be more difficult.

Branching off from the two parks they’re building in the area, Icon Bay Park and Paraiso Park, the Biscayne Line would ultimately run the entire length of Edgewater’s bayfront from Albert Pallot Park, just to the north of the Julia Tuttle Causeway, to Museum Park to the south, creating a publicly accessible waterfront for the entire length of Edgewater, and linking up with the rest of Miami’s bay walk infrastructure.

Jorge Perez and Carlos Rosso of Related Group are listed as part of the team, along with Miami commissioner Marc Sarnoff and Arquitectonica’s Bernardo Fort-Brescia.

The website is funded by Related Group, which has promised to pay for the project.

Just the thought of being able to jog from Brickell to Edgewater and back on a boardwalk makes me smile. If anything else gets built in this cycle I truly hope is this!

I’m sure there are self-serving interests here (of course), but we need more of this, please!

Hopefully the City and the County will get on board…Iconbay park is looking great…hopefully soon once Crimson is finished they will complete the access from 27th street…great neighborhood pocket park.
Between Crimson, Bay House, Biscayne Beach and Iconbay there will be 1200 new units/families in that area of Edgewater that will benefit from this park.

We need more public activation of our waterfront

Good point, but bad math. I count 954 units from those buildings.

Hope this is real and not a ploy to sell Gran Paraiso amidst a slowdown. The timing makes me dubious (and developers make me cynical).

Don’t think they need that to sell their jobs…by the way went to the sales center and it was packed. Told me they had more than 20% of the bldg. reserved in 5 days…seems they are moving well.
Hopefully people in Miami embrace more public access to the waterfront and do more to support these initiatives.

Marc Sarnoff’s photo on the website lists him as Miami Dade Commissioner. A mistake? My guess is that is his way of announcing his intent to run for a county seat when his City Miami term limits expire soon. For better or worse.

hopefully it happens,…the park on 28th looks great.
Hopefully they start the Michael Schwartz restaurant at Paraiso soon…will be amazing to have a great restaurant and another park on the bay.
