Miami commissioners signed off on an updated plan for downtown Miami’s METsquare development that preserves and displays Tequesta Indian village remains previously found at the site.

Thursday’s commission vote was the culmination of weeks of negotiations between METsquare builder MDM Development Group, consulting archaeologist Bob Carr, preservationists and state, city and Miami-Dade County legal and historic-preservation staffers.

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. A third circle is to be encased alongside remnants of the Royal Palm Hotel, which was constructed in 1897, according to the Miami Herald.
