On Monday, the Miami River Commission reviewed plans submitted by the Chetrit Group to redo Jose Marti Park to plans by landscape architect Raymond Jungles, connecting it by river walk to their neighboring project and adding a massive hanging sculpture to the highway above. This is basically how they plan to spend the required $21 million in public benefits, according to The Next Miami. The sculpture, by artist Janet Echelman is orbular, ephemeral, and light covered, and would accompany more lighting on the pylons in the river. New park features would include a cleaned up lawn, a new playground, a new exercise area, lush new landscaping, a renovated pool, new entry plazas, of course vastly improved accessibility to Brickell residents, and upgrades that would touch just about every area of the park.
