Miami city officials broke ground this morning on the new 1814 Brickell Avenue Park, which is now slated for completion in five months. The 35,500-square-foot parcel will cost upwards of $1 million to develop, and funding is coming from the Homeland Defense Bond Series 3. On the to-do list of the park’s developers: a children’s play area, an elevated landscaped court, shrubs and trees, benches, picket fencing, lighting and irrigation. “When it is completed this fall, the 1814 Park will take its place among the most beautiful parks in all of South Florida, which is what the citizens of Brickell and in the City of Miami deserve,” Miami District 2 Commissioner Marc Sarnoff said at today’s ceremony.
