Two recent reports suggest that construction has resumed on the Raymond Jungles designed Brickell Flatiron Park (Also known as Triangle Park). A Curbed tipster sent in a note telling us that PVC piping was being put in, remembering that a dispute over the irrigation system had stopped construction in the first place, and Curbed friend Craig Chester (he of Transit Miami reportage) let us know that fresh piles of soil had been deposited on the site. If you remember, back in May when everyone still thought the park was probably a forgone hope, Related used it in their advertising for 1100 Millecento.
Brickell Flatiron Park is a key addition to Miami's (slowly and haphazardly) growing park system, which your editor wrote about earlier this year, just before the park's construction halt. Whoever, or whatever, is behind the park's return, we are seriously glad this addition to Brickell's pedestrian fabric is finally back. Now, will someone tell us why at least half of the park's land area is given over to a gravel parking lot?
