Project Type: Transit-Oriented Development
Project Status: Completed
Site Area: 1,500 acres
Team: PlusUrbia Design + Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council
Client: City of Miami & South Florida Regional Transportation Authority (SFRTA)
Transit Oriented Development: Downtown + Midtown + 79th Street
PlusUrbia created a typology report for future Transit Oriented Development (TOD) in three key locations in the City of Miami. The work for the Downtown, Midtown, and 79th Street stations will impact how communities will be connected by mass transit to major regional job, cultural and activity centers.
The TOD guidelines will assist the City in improving conditions around the planned stations by promoting dense, walkable, mixed-use, compact development. They will contribute to future mobility by connecting communities to all significant regional job, cultural and activity centers. Vibrant, 24-hour communities will be anchored by commuter rail connecting to all major regional job, cultural and activity centers.
PlusUrbia was selected for its clear and innovative planning guidelines, outreach, and understanding of transportation corridors.
The studio partnered with the Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council to create the report delivered to the City of Miami and the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority, which funded the guidelines.
