The Miami Downtown Development Authority and architects Behar-Font & Partners have released a video animation of their plan to completely revamp the Downtown section of Biscayne Boulevard, converting it into a grand pedestrian-focused promenade, like the Malecón in Havana, the Las Ramblas in Barcelona, or the Embarcadero in San Francisco. Called 'Biscayne Green', the Boulevard wouldn't exclusively be given over to pedestrians, but would instead have a large central median activated with greenery, sculptures, fountains, and public amenities. An indoor structure labeled the 'Biscayne Green Marketplace' appears to be the centerpiece.
