Miami Beach Capital Improvement Projects; three sections of our City are well underway with Capital improvements. North Beach and South Beach have various stages of construction, and there are more on the way. Eighty percent of Miami Beach real estate improvement projects are ahead of schedule, so it won’t be long before you can enjoy new and improved streets, drainage, lighting, landscaping, and other improved infrastructure.
South Pointe Park
South Pointe Park is to be completed in early 2009 as dunes are being created, a serpentine walkway that traverses a rising berm, open palm lawns, a new park pavilion with a unique rooftop event area, and the foundation has been poured on one of the most exciting elements in the park… the “cut walk.” A 20-foot wide elevated promenade providing breathtaking views of Government Cut. Final touches to South Pointe Park include pedestrian-friendly yet turtle-safe lighting along the cut walk and a new destination entrance at Washington Avenue. There will be distinctive and interactive water features and more.
The jewel in its crown will be the Art in Public Places installation of “Drift,” in its exact scale model of an iceberg created by world-class artist Inigo Ovalle. Our beautiful streets between Collins and Ocean Drive (6th Street to 14th Street) will soon be updated with new sidewalks, lighting, and landscaping with noticeable improvements to the pedestrian experience.
Belle Isle Park
Belle Isle Park & Street Improvements are also close to completion. This 3.3 Acres of green space are between the Venetian Causeway and Island Drive South. Improvements include enhanced landscaping, new pedestrian walkways, and a playground with furnishings such as benches and trash receptacles. Venetian Islands real estate plans are also in the works for a bark park for canine residents’ enjoyment… Arff!
Normandy Shores Golf Course
The new Normandy Shores Golf Course and Clubhouse are on track for completion this year. There will be the same course challenge and configuration as before, with greener, environmentally friendly grass and the nines reversed. Like the Bayshore neighborhood’s Miami Beach Golf Course, the course will be bright green with eleven beautiful water features. The City of Miami Beach honored its history by renovating the clubhouse to reflect its original design. A kitchen, 80-cart capacity barn with additional locker rooms for men & women, and new restrooms.
