Flagler Street is lined with historic buildings, and was once the vibrant main street of Miami, FL. Curtis + Rogers’ revitalization design plan reflects the rich history of the railroad’s importance in the development of the city while widening the sidewalks and planting shade trees to create a more pedestrian-friendly retail destination. The groundbreaking design integrates innovative techniques in tree growth and stormwater management. The first block was constructed in 2017, but was halted due to contractual issues. The project was then re-designed in 2018 to be a curbless street at the urging of Mana Miami. The project is due to start construction again in the Spring of 2020.
