Miami-Dade County selected a design firm for the Underline, a landscaped, 10-mile long bikeway and park located south of downtown and underneath the Metrorail tracks.

New York-based James Corner Field Operations was chosen out of 19 applicants and five finalists, including Dlandstudio, Balmori Associates, Perkins & Will, and Stoss. The firm led the design team for the High Line in New York City.

Master planning and preliminary design expected to be complete by September, according to a county press release. Public meetings will be held throughout the process.

“Over the next six months, we’ll be working hard on our master plan. In addition to that, we’ll be developing details on the Brickell site and a second site to be determined,” Friends of the Underline founder Meg Daly told TRD. “We’re making a push to start building in 2016.”

Friends of the Underline is the group behind the campaign to redevelop the M-Path into a linear park. Daly said the Brickell site is unique because it’s the only mobility corridor that has cars, bikes, pedestrians and trolleys.

Three cities, along with the Knight Foundation, the Miami Foundation and others, will fund the $500,000 contract for the design.
