Well, it's literally taking decades but Miami's bay walk is gradually becoming a reality. A brand new 300 foot section of the bay walk, passing behind the Miami Women's Club and connecting two other existing sections of walkway, opened this week, providing an important link in the chain.
One of Miami’s liveliest public spaces is Margaret Pace Park, at the south end of Edgewater, one of the city’s most rapidly transforming neighborhoods. Lined with towering residential towers on the west, and the shimmering blue waters of Biscayne Bay on the east, the park is a favorite of neighborhood residents. The park features basketball, tennis, a large playground, volleyball, sweeping lawns, public art, and a meandering baywalk with spectacular views of the bay.
Edgewater is a long, and somewhat narrow neighborhood bordering Biscayne Bay in Miami. One of Miami’s oldest neighborhoods, it really developed in booms that mirror Miami’s repeated eras of development through its history.
Well kablooie. Aria on the Bay, a condominium project which I once called the Melo Group's least hideous tower yet, is very close to being topped off at its full 52 story height, as we can see in new construction photos by Miami's premiere street architecture photographer Phillip Pessar. I'm happy to say my initial impression of the Arquitectonica-designed tower is proving to be very true.
