Jose Marti Park Gymnasium

Miami, FL

Zyscovich Architects were hired to design a community gymnasium facility as a part of Jose Marti Park, located in downtown Miami. The project is a challenging addition due to the tiny size of the site, which runs underneath an I-95 overpass, is bisected by a residential street and contains major utility hubs feeding the City of Miami and Dade County. As a unique solution to the site’s size constraints and urban setting, Zyscovich elevated the building to span the street, avoiding the underground communication cables and water and sewer lines. This innovative move simultaneously saved the City money and created prominence for the facility.

The building itself is forward-looking in its architectural expression and is reflective of the new image being cultivated by of the City of Miami—one of skyscrapers, glass and cosmopolitan living. The facility includes a gymnasium, a fitness center, an aerobics facility, locker rooms, administrative offices, storage areas and a seating area for 500 people, which will provide an additional community meeting place for Miami residents. In addition, the master plan and siting of the building improves the park’s connection to the Miami River at the southeast end of the park.

Services: Master Planning, Programming, Architecture, Interior Design, Construction Administration
