City of Miami DDA Downtown Master Plan

Miami, FL

Zyscovich was hired by the Downtown Development Authority (“DDA”) to work in collaboration with the City of Miami and the Miami 21 Initiative to develop an updated master plan for downtown Miami – an area encompassing over 250 city blocks and consisting of numerous distinct neighborhoods. 
The update of the Downtown Miami Master Plan is a further opportunity to create a “road map” that merges urbanism and architecture with market, economic, social, and service issues.  It will set forth overall and district development strategies, and establish guidelines for future development, as well as requirements for improving and enhancing the public realm including:
Recommending storm water improvements and sustainable urban concepts 
Coordinating with focus groups for retail, hotel, residential, and office uses
Establishing a framework to coordinate new development with public realm improvements
Establishing a market-based rationale for sustainable urban revitalization
Establishing district development strategies
Establishing a Public Realm conceptual plan
Working with the transportation consultant to address development potentials
