New Waterfront Park in Miami's Edgewater Neighborhood
As all the prime waterfront land is being snapped up for new skyscraper projects, the emerging Edgewater neighborhood is getting a few new public parks by the bay.
The City of Miami recognized Edgewater as an area in need of redevelopment and revitalization, so the execs at The Related Group got together and decided to chip in some of the property on their latest condo project to create a public park.
This is the second time they've done so.
From 19th to 35th Streets, Edgewater had no public parks on the water until Related's Iconbay, which is currently under construction, dedicated a park at the end of 28th Street.
Related will donate a half-acre park adjacent to another condo development, called Element, on 31st Street. The new park will include a playground, dog park, exercise zone and a collection of sculptures curated through a collaborative partnership with the National YoungArts Foundation.
Related expects to launch sales on the Element condo development in the coming months.
The new park will advance the City of Miami's public greenway connection with more than 200 feet of improvements along the water's edge.
