We all know that Miami does not spare investments in millionaire real estate projects. Not only is the private sector leading a unique movement bringing in the most luxurious and grandiose projects in the world, but also public institutions are in an aggressive phase of building and revitalizing parks, mobility, and transport projects, among others. However, what caught our attention this year was the expansion of the city’s main beaches. Tons of sand were transported in a bold project to make “Magic City” even more magical.
More than 1000 tons of sand transported to expand beaches in Miami
The main restoration project was carried out on the beaches of Sunny Isles Beach, Bal Harbour and Miami Beach for a total of almost 11 miles of coast. More than 1,000 tons were transported in a $40 million project unprecedented in the region.
The new venture is in line with the transformation that the city has undergone. Miami recently gained a new nickname, “Wall Street South”, referring to the diaspora of banks and financial institutions in the region. The community of Bal Harbour Village in particular, in addition to the expansion of the beach, will also have a new Waterfront Park and the old pier, which borders the end of the beach, will practically double in size in a revolutionary architectural project. The new The Cut Walk Jetty will feature walkways that advance over the ocean, new social spaces, bike lanes, among other improvements.
Concern for the environment and sustainability the expansion of the coastline was followed by a careful study by a team of engineers and scientists, so that the environmental impact would not interfere with wildlife on the beaches of Miami-Dade. The sand brought has grains of size and color similar to those that already exist on the beaches of the region, following strict qualifications. Too dark and too hot sand can damage sea turtle eggs. The works will also follow the calendar of sea turtles, whose season begins on April 1 and ends on October 31. The hurricane calendar was also considered.
