Renzo Piano’s first US residential project offers 35-acre public park

by Luke Cloherty | 24 Jul 2018

A 35-acre public park, which will also complete the Miami Beach boardwalk, will accompany Eighty-Seven Park – Pritzker Prize-winning architect Renzo Piano’s first foray into the US residential market in Miami, Florida.

Eighty Seven Park’s developer, Terra, is putting $10m (€8.5m, £7.6m) towards the North Shore Park transformation with plans to create an environment that will enhance the neighborhood and “bring the North Beach community closer together”.

The park project is in conjunction with Eighty Seven Park and being led by landscape architecture firm West 8.

A spokesperson told CLADglobal: “West 8 conceived the design inspiration from Eighty Seven Park’s architect Renzo Piano. The concept celebrates the surrounding ecology and brings the outdoors in.

“The park design will include the same tropical foliage found in the area, and introduce oceanside walks, family spaces, heightened security and cool shade with winding paths.”

Additional dunes are also being installed along the shoreline of neighbouring Miami Beach as part of the project to protect the land from erosion due to rising sea levels, along with more coastal palm trees to act as a wind barrier.
