James Corner Field Operations is to work its magic on the redesign of the corridor-community to the beach. The firm designed New York’s High Line, an mile-and-a-half stretch of unused, elevated railway that became a nature walk that last year attracted eight million visitors.
In Miami-Dade County the firm is working on The Underline, a landscape-filled linear park that winds beneath the elevated Metrorail tracks, from downtown to Dadeland. They also designed the plaza between the Miami Science Museum and Perez Art Museum Miami and redesigned Miami Beach’s Lincoln Road promenade.
The firm last week opened a huge waterfront park with skyline views in Hong Kong, which drew tens of thousands of visitors in its first week, he said. Its work also can be seen in London, Dallas and Houston. In Seattle, it designed a sea wall that attracts algae for migrating salmon.The designers are thinking about extending the shoreline to make an urban beach, a 100-slip marina, visitor pier and waterfront restaurant. Also possibilities: a botanic garden, dog play area, and a restored coastline rather than just sea walls, to make the waterfront more accessible, sustainable and inviting. They spoke of food trucks, volleyball courts, a playground, boardwalks and a water fountain plaza.Jeff Greene, who owns 18 acres around the park, hired MIT urban planners Carlo Ratti Associati to conceptualize a plan.Greene tapped Swiss architecture firm Herzog & De Meuron - known for the Jade Signature condo in Sunny Isles Beach, the 1111 Lincoln in Miami Beach, and many cultural centers and museums around the world - to design the West Palm Beach project.
Instead of constructing 13-story buildings with wide footprints that would cover most of the land, Greene plans to build taller, skinny towers and leave much of the land open. The first three towers would be 38, 32 and 26 stories, Greene said. There would be two or three more towers after that, he added.
The first building would likely be near Flagler Drive and 23rd Street.
Greene plans to build 2,000 to 2,500 residential units and some commercial space on the property, which he said is consistent with current zoning. The biggest changes he needs from the city are the height increase and the design style.
The commercial uses could include a food court and basic consumer services, Greene said. He’s been in talks with grocery stores about the property, but not sure one would offer enough rent to justify the prime location.Big changes are coming to the area..
