In 2011 C+R was asked to study the US1 Corridor paying particular attention to the underutilized land under the existing metrorail. Our team felt strongly that we needed not only to enhance the land under the metro, but envision this space as a new urban multiuse park traveling the length of US-1 from Brickell to Pinecrest and beyond. After all, there are shiny new parks in city’s popping up all over the world revitalizing urban space attached to existing and old transportation networks. The Highline by JCFO being the most prominent example.
