The design concept is based on the importance of 41st Street as a diverse community center and major gateway into the heart of Miami Beach. The goal was to transform the street into a tropical, cosmopolitan “Boulevard”, based on 41st Street’s unique geographical location and particular functions. The design, based on a community consensus-building process, calls for a sequence of spatial “events” to be linked with Royal Palms, flowering shrubs, and groundcovers. A landscape median is proposed for the length of the street, and new decorative sidewalk paving. A major element of the plan was the Indian Creek Bridge improvements, calling for wider sidewalks, benches, planters and a pavilion lighthouse.
