As Miami has become internationally renowned as a glamorous destination to live, work, and vacation, there is a need for the creation of a bay front walkway that connects Edgewater to Downtown. Today, with support from the public and private sector, elected officials, neighboring communities, and major local cultural institutions, Biscayne Line is moving from vision to reality.
One of the strongest supporters of Biscayne Line is The Related Group, a real estate development company whose vast portfolio of luxury residential properties includes the new Paraiso Bay community in Edgewater. Related Group Chairman and CEO Jorge M. Pérez and Carlos Rosso, President of the company’s Condominium Development Division, have hired award-winning architect Bernardo Fort-Brescia of the firm Arquitectonica and are working closely with City of Miami Commissioner Marc Sarnoff to create a truly visionary waterfront redevelopment plan.
Design for Biscayne Line is inspired by great urban public spaces, such as New York City’s High Line, and luxurious waterfront residential communities, such as Ipanema in Rio de Janeiro. Biscayne Line will bring pedestrians right to water’s edge on broad, beautifully landscaped pathways and floating docks, and will also provide places to sit, rest, and reflect on Miami’s incredible natural beauty. Perhaps most importantly, it will create tangible connections between communities, the waterfront, and some of Miami’s finest cultural destinations, including the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts and the Pérez Art Museum.
