15 residential projects rise in Biscayne Corridor
By Charlotte Libov
Asked to discuss just the residential development of the Biscayne Corridor, Dana Nottingham demurs.
"It's very difficult to talk about it from one standpoint," says Mr. Nottingham, executive director of the Miami Downtown Development Authority. "The number-one priority in developing the downtown strategy as a premiere place to live, work and play is the mix of uses."
Mr. Nottingham estimates 30,000 residents will inhabit towers under construction in the one-mile area, but then, he says, the area will also bring millions of shoppers and 100,000 workers pouring in.
"Our whole strategy is to enhance and make this a signature area. It's where people will live and also spend their leisure time, in terms of going to the performing arts, entertainment and retail shops," he said.
"The Biscayne Boulevard experience will be completely transformed. All of those condos standing up like soldiers will also have access to cafés and services. The streets will be wider, people will be going to and from the park, the Performing Arts Center will be here. It will be completely different from anything you see right now, because the voids that we know of today will get filled in," he said. "It will be a premier residential street and a promenade on the world stage."
