Comment of the day

"The many man-made islands in Miami were all built more than 70 years ago with very few exceptions...long before the creation of Biscayne National Park and the Biscayne Bay Aquatic Preserve...this project has a snowball's chance in hell of actually being completed. It's next to impossible to get a permit to build a dock, much less destroy "500-1000 acres" of critically endangered seagrass beds and prime marine life habitat so that a foreign developer can make a quick buck building something completely inaccessible to average Miami residents. Dredging the shipping channels to facilitate the Port Miami expansion, which at least has an arguable public benefit, has taken years of environmental reviews, permits, litigation, etc. This is one for Curbed to post in a decade as a "what could have been" development that never happened."-Zachary Joslin [Dutch May Build Floating Luxury Development On The Bay]
