Miami Beach Convention Center Parking Lot Gets a Green Makeover
(Miami Beach, FL) Apr 26, 2019 -
Join the City of Miami Beach on Friday, May 3 at 10 a.m. for the highly anticipated groundbreaking ceremony to mark the transformation of the Miami Beach Convention Center surface parking lot into a 5.8-acre park.
Estimated to be completed this October, the new park will feature 500 new trees, open lawn spaces, shade areas, walkways, lighting, a veterans memorial, public restroom facility, a flexible area space and stunning public art.
The entire Convention Center campus, once finished, will have a total of 12 acres of new green spaces — considering the 5.8-acre park and the recently completed 2.8-acre park on the north side, landscaped medians and streetscapes. The total pervious area of the 25-acre Convention Center campus will also increase by 245% and will have a total of 1,330 new trees, including 580 new mangroves along Collins Canal.
