The Underline In Brickell Is Getting A 50-Foot Dining Table As Construction Wraps Up & Opening Nears

The first phase of the Underline is now nearly complete in Brickell, and will be open to the public soon.

Last week, a 50-foot dining table was being installed in the project, in front of the Mary Brickell Village Publix. The table will have enough seats to accommodate 56, although capacity will be limited during the covid-19 epidemic.

In addition to the dining area, the Brickell Backyard portion of the Underline includes:

  • A butterfly garden
  • Pedestrian and bicycle trails
  • A basketball court, gym equipment, and spaces for exercise classes, yoga, movies and concerts
  • Native landscaping, lighting and signage

The Brickell Backyard area is about 5% of the total Underline. It cost $14.3 million to build.

When completed, the Underline will run 10 miles below Miami’s Metrorail with a total of 120 acres of linear park, urban trail & public art.

Dining table will be a big hit with the homeless who sit on the wall.

The homeless need to sit and eat too.

The homeless need to go back to Ohio and let people enjoy what their hard worked tax dollar allows them

Don’t you know a lot of the homeless people have metal, drug problems, and have fallen thru the system?! A little bit of sympathy toward these homeless people will go a long way. By the way, a lot of people are just a pay check away from the streets.

You’ll be the first to change your mind when they take a mondo duke on your driveway, Pelosi.

Not worried about anyone taking a “mondo duke” on my driveway because they’ll get blasted from outer space by Trump’s Space Force if they tried that.

It’s just a stupid concept with zero thought given to its functionality. Yes many homeless people are mentally ill and have substance abuse problems so why create a further nuisance to attract them? What about seating? Do you really think people are going to take their own chairs there to sit and eat underneath the noisy rail line? Without chairs people are just going to sit on the table.

At current pace… never. I’ve been watching these guys from my balcony. Literally takes one day to move a forklift into position.

The thing is it’s not union people. Union construction work fast to get big bonuses. These employees are little better than day labor.

I really do think this is an awesome project as long as its maintained and the homeless dont take it over then it should be fine! There need to be police presence throughout the day on bikes riding through the area to keep it safe.

Lots of these projects are kept going as long as possible to keep the payments coming to the developers, planners, subs, etc. This one is no different. Takes forever to do anything in Miami.

The Underline has Underperformed. Who ever designed it missed the big point. GREEN SPACE.
Meanwhile, the misguided designed have put more cement and concrete and the result is an another ugly urban space. Very Dumb. I would digup a lot of the concrete and just plants trees and bushes and put tressels on the supporting columns so they look like trees that hold up the railroad
