The city of North Miami has unveiled new drawings of the planned Chinatown Cultural Arts and Innovation District, which would be located along the Seventh Avenue corridor between 119th and 135th Streets and seeks to reinvent the area.
Among the new visuals:
- Large pagoda gazebo, whose architecture was inspired by inspired by China’s Han dynasty
- Temperature-controlled rooftop gardens that provide stormwater management and filtration; food cultivation; and recreational activities
- Greenspace with a modern take on the traditional moon gate
- Open-air canopy inspired by the Enchanted Forest towering above southern gateway inspired by China’s Ming Dynasty
- Hotel above a parking structure and open-air park
- Vertical gardens comprised of “Supertrees,” which provide shading, planting, solar/rainwater collection, and structural support support for an elevated walkway
The final master plan is expected to be reviewed by the Community Redevelopment Agency’s Advisory Committee in July.
