The Underline will connect neighborhoods in our community by transforming a ten-mile stretch beneath the Metrorail system, between Brickell Station and Dadeland South, into a linear park.
This is a public-private partnership between the Miami-Dade Parks and Transit departments and the Friends of the Underline. The Underline will become a world-class urban trail creating a walkable, bikeable corridor to improve connectivity between surrounding neighborhoods with downtown destinations. It is immediately connected to transit and everything from getting to work, shopping, learning, and visiting historic sites like Vizcaya Museum and Gardens will be within reach of The Underline.
The New York design consulting firm of James Corner Field Operations has been selected to develop the master plan for the project. The firm has been touted as one of the most influential design firms by Time Magazine and is renowned for such high-profile projects as the New York City High Line, Seattle’s Central Waterfront and South Park of London's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
