In 2006, the City of Miami commissioned a “Capital Improvement Plan” for Bayfront Park.
Curtis + Rogers along with their sub consultants produced three documents for the “Capital Improvements Plan.” The first was an in-depth analysis of the park including functional environmental and aesthetic issues, the second was a series of proposed improvements which could be staged and the third was an estimate of probable cost.
Between 2007 and 2010 several of the proposed improvements from the plan were implemented, including:
New trees along Biscayne Boulevard to provide more shade.
New Coconut Palms around the fountain and an expanded beach area.
The installation of a playground.
The construction of the Baywalk portion of the plan, which transformed the desolate hot walkway along the Bay into a shady destination to stroll.
