Miami Beach officials are set to unveil a new Lincoln Road Master Plan designed by James Corner Field Operations, a New York landscape architect.
An advance copy of the first draft obtained by TNM is riddled with errors and feels underwhelming, but officials emphasize that it is a work in progress. A meeting where the plan will be presented to the public is scheduled for next week, with the goal of finalizing the design by August.
Some of the ideas that the architect came up with includes new pavement, lighting, and planters. Stricter rules would be created to create consistent pedestrian walkways that aren’t blocked by cafe seating.
James Corner Field Operations is best known for their design of the High Line, a linear park in Manhattan.
