Walkable Waterfront

Perez is pushing for the creation of a public walkway along the western shores of Biscayne Bay in Miami’s urban core. The proposed Biscayne Line would run the entire length of Edgewater, home to several Related condo projects, and link up with other public parks and walkways in downtown Miami and Coconut Grove.

“It’s good for development. But more importantly, it’s good for the city,” Perez says. He envisions something like the High Line of New York or the Atlanta Beltline, with a bay view. “This should be a place where everyone is jogging around,” he says.

Since 1979, Miami has required new bayfront developments to set aside 20 feet of land from the water for public access, bolstering the idea of a miles-long pedestrian path. But unless older developments agree to turn their private land into a public thoroughfare, the walkway will have to be built around them via fixed or floating structures in the bay. While Related has offered to pay for portions of the project, regulatory issues could be a stumbling block.
