We all know that Miami does not spare investments in millionaire real estate projects. Not only is the private sector leading a unique movement bringing the most luxurious and grandiose projects in the world, but also public institutions are in an aggressive phase of construction and revitalization of parks, projects aimed at mobility and transport, among others. What caught our attention this year, however, was the expansion of the city’s main beaches. Tons of sand were transported in an audacious project to make “Magic City” even more magical.
The major restoration project was carried out on the beaches of Sunny Isles Beach, Bal Harbor and Miami Beach for a total of nearly 11 miles of shoreline. More than 1000 tons were transported in a US$ 40 million project that is unprecedented in the region.
The new endeavor is in line with the transformation that the city has been undergoing, becoming a World Class City. Miami recently gained a new nickname, “Wall Street South”, in reference to the diaspora of banks and financial institutions for the region.
The Bal Harbor Village community in particular, in addition to the beach expansion, is also getting a new Waterfront Park and the old pier, which borders the end of the beach, will be practically doubled in size in a revolutionary architectural project. The new The Cut Walk Jetty will feature walkways that advance over the ocean, new social spaces, bike paths, among other improvements.
Concern for the environment and sustainability
The expansion of the waterfront was followed by a careful study carried out by a team of engineers and scientists, so that the environmental impact would not interfere with the wildlife on the beaches of Miami-Dade.
The sand brought has grains with a size and color similar to those already existing on the beaches in the region, following strict qualifications. Sand that is too dark and too hot can damage sea turtle eggs.
The works will also follow the calendar of sea turtles, whose season starts on April 1st and ends on October 31st. The hurricane calendar was also taken into account.
