Miami Esplanade

Back in 2007, I had an idea that Miami’s Edgewater area could benefit from an activated waterfront, including public access to the waterfront for picnics and a bike/running path so residents could more easily commute to downtown.  Being from Boston, I stole the idea from the Charles River Esplanade, and Miami waterfront expert Spencer Crowley contributed two refinements: the intervention could also include mangrove groves and stormwater treatment.  I asked architects Tony Leon and David Schwach to do a quick photoshop of the seawall between Rts. 395 and 195 and the Esplanade, and the result is above.  Thoughts on the concept?
