Brickell Avenue Median

 

The Brickell Avenue Median project is a streetscape plan for the existing median from 5th to 15th Road on Brickell Avenue, the financial and business center south of downtown Miami. The landscape design concept was to create a spatial unity through a continuous double row of Live Oak trees. The Oak planting symbolizes the native hammock canopy which once dominated the Brickell area. Other proposed improvements include decorative paving, sculpture, and street signs designed with plaques describing the area’s history.
