Five design teams have been announced as finalists in the competition to design the masterplan for the Underline, a linear park underneath the Metrorail tracks south of Downtown that's in the planning stages and is sort of the opposite of New York's High Line. (formerly known as the GreenLink) The submissions also included designs for two demonstration projects at the Metrorail's Brickell and University stations. The finalists are Balmori Associates, Dlandstudio, and James Corner Field Operations, all from New York, Perkins + Will, and Stoss, from Boston. They'll make their final presentations February 2nd.
UPDATE: Perkins + Will's Atlanta and Miami offices are both involved.
