Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) has designed “Miami Produce”, a 125,000 sq m mixed-use project that will be based on stilts.
Eight separate buildings will contain facilities such as residential, office and retail space, a school, urban farming, restaurants and a hotel.
BIG commented: “A stack of linear buildings will float above the existing warehouses, generating a large urban courtyard at the centre while forming gateways that open to the surrounding context.
“On top of each building, programmed ‘roofscapes’ extend the public realm vertically and capture stunning views of downtown Miami and surrounding neighbourhoods.”
BIG is working on the project with local developer Robert Wennett.
