A Baywalk/Riverwalk along Biscayne Bay and the Miami River in Downtown Miami is moving closer to a reality since the Miami Downtown Development Authority (“Miami DDA”) formally requested proposals from qualified and interested consultant teams. Moreover, the Miami DDA is seeking proposals from interested parties¬†until July 28th at 5p.m.

The proposals are supposed to include a development of a brand identity for the baywalk/riverwalk, a unifying design element or palette of elements to incorporate into the existing landscape/hardscape and an implementation and maintenance strategy.

According to the Miami DDA, no other waterfront project has the potential of transforming Downtown Miami as does this project, which will also be a celebration of Miami’s unique heritage and generate a legacy for generations to come. This is largely because Downtown Miami has recently emerged as one of the country’s fastest-growing urban centers with a huge supply and demand of urban living, so with this demand, residents and businesses want more pedestrian-friendly green spaces and streets that have a multitude of purposes for those who live, work and play in Downtown.
