Canopy Park, Miami Beach’s new three-acre community park situated between the 600 and 700 blocks of Alton Road and designed by ArquitectonicaGEO, is now open to the public. Park-goers can enjoy open greenspaces shaded by native tree species, pedestrian trails and bike paths, an outdoor gym and dog run, a MONSTRUM-designed children’s playground, and public art displays. Designed with sustainability in mind, Canopy Park reflects how landscape architecture can serve as a green resiliency solution for coastal communities with a host of environmentally conscious features including a Maritime Hammock, bioswales, and a 25,000-gallon cistern to conserve and manage rainwater.
Developers Terra Group, lead by David Martin and GFO Investments, lead by Russel Galbut, have started sales on their upcoming condo tower titled Five Park, a 48-story skyscraper that will soon hold the title of the tallest building in all of Miami Beach. Addressed as 500 Alton Road, the structure is anticipated to rise 519-feet, towering over the entrance to South Beach. Designed by Arquitectonica with Gabellini Sheppard handling interiors, the development will yield approximately 278 residences and nearly 40,000 square feet of amenities.
