Calle 8 Revitalization

Project Type: Street Revitalization
Project Status: Completed
Site Area:
 2 linear miles
Team: PlusUrbia
Client: City of Miami – Pro bono work

For half a century, Calle Ocho (SW 8th Street) has served as an eastbound speedway for commuters, along with the equally dangerous one-way, three-lane, westbound SW 7th Street. Originally a 2-way typical main street, Calle 8 was transformed in the late 60s into the highway we know today.

Plusurbia Design proposes to turn Calle 8 back to its original self – reversing 50 years of disenfranchising neighborhoods and commerce with blight left in the wake of a corridor-turned-freeway. The design proposes to unlock Calle 8’s potential by offering the restoration of the original two-way traffic.

Images were created of a 21st-century Calle Ocho with multimodal transportation alternatives such as dedicated bike and transit lanes, comfortable wide sidewalks, and additional safe crosswalks in a vibrant urban setting.
