7th Street Plaza
Miami, Florida

INTERAMERICAN CAMPUS PLAZA
MIAMI DADE COLLEGE


Project Type: Urban Design & Land Use Planning
Project Status: Ongoing
Site Area: 4 acres
Team: PlusUrbia
Client: Miami-Dade College


The plaza will create a community gathering place worthy of the largest bilingual learning environment in all of higher education. The amenity-filled open space will re-stitch the community, connecting the Miami-Dade College Eduardo J. Padrón Campus’ 7,000 students, faculty and staff with the vibrant Little Havana neighborhood around it. An active central space will transform lanes of unsafe traffic into an active, pedestrian-oriented hub. The plaza creates a grand civic space for events and opportunities for the MDC Eduardo J. Padrón Campus to share its wealth of assets with the diverse community that it anchors.


Just as Little Havana has evolved with the unique history of Miami, the plaza is designed to evolve and grow as an unrivaled center of the community. The civic space can be built in phases as urban furniture, nature, lighting, a mural, dramatic gateway feature, amphitheater and other elements are added. The transformative plaza will build a bond between the Miami-Dade College Eduardo J. Padrón Campus and the community the day it opens.
