The developer of Met Square in downtown Miami released updated renderings that show how ancient Tequesta Indian village remains found at the site would be preserved and displayed.
Miami-based architect Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates came up with designs that include glass enclosures over a pair of circular carved postholes in the bedrock archaeologists believe mark the foundations of Indian dwellings. Developer MDM Group is slated to present an updated project plan to Miami commissioners today. MDM reached a compromise last week with consulting archaeologist Bob Carr, preservationists and state, city and Miami-Dade County legal and historic-preservation staffers to allow the hotel and entertainment project to move forward.
MDM is allowing HistoryMiami to operate a public museum on the site. — Eric Kalis
