fhp tectonics completes museum park in downtown miami
Decades in the making, Museum Park in downtown Miami is now open to the public. FHP Tectonics recently completed the project, officially opening the park in June 2014. The 21-acre waterfront property includes a promenade from the boulevard to the bay, a new baywalk, a great lawn, paths shaded by massive oaks, two museums, a beach area, cafes, and views of Biscayne Bay, Port Miami, and the downtown skyline. “Come see your park. Just stand out there, and look,’’ Miami Commissioner Marc Sarnoff said. “We’ve created great bones for this park. It can be improved and enhanced. But the infrastructure came out much better than I ever expected. Everybody should be proud of this park.’’
FHP’s work included construction of a pedestrian walkway along the bulkhead and northern boundary of the park, site/civil landscaping, irrigation, and lighting installations. In addition, an asphalt parking lot for approximately 40 cars was constructed along with a restroom facility. The work also includes construction of concrete stairs, retaining walls and ADA access ramps.
