A new rendering shows what Ocean Drive would look like if it was rebuilt for pedestrians only.
The city of Miami Beach is now considering permanently closing the road to cars, and rebuilding it into a pedestrian promenade.
Earlier this year, the city closed the street to cars, but said the move was temporary due to the pandemic.
City officials are now preparing a plan to level Ocean Drive to a single elevation with more room for restaurant seating, while cars would be banned, according to Miami Today.
The rendering was prepared by architect Chris Ritter for the owner of Mango’s Tropical Cafe.
Mango’s is currently closed and the owner is trying to sell their property, after Miami Beach began planning harsh new measures to restrict nightlife even after the pandemic ends.
According to architect Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, Ocean Drive is an ideal candidate to convert to pedestrian only use.
