PHASING AND USE

The Blueway is a hot new development capitalizing on the arts and culture of Wynwood and the current climate change affecting the region. This is addressed by expanding upon the area’s transit systems and celebrating water through vibrant cisterns and landscape systems. The new train station is complemented by a proposed East-West Bus line and is anchored by a new medical facility. The Blueway capitalizes on the rail line dividing the site and envisions it as the Waveway, a central hub connecting communities, cultures and setting an example for future resilient development.

DEVELOPED PLAN

The Blueway intertwines public transit, stormwater management, arts & culture, multi-generational interaction, affordable housing, and resilient public spaces while reinforcing regional connections and elevating the renowned Miami nightlife. The Tri-Rail Blueway Stop located at the center of the development acts as both a regional connector and community focal point. In addition to the rail connection, a new East-West bus loop connects the Blueway at NE 29th to downtown Wynwood, through Allapattah to the Miami International Airport along a new 29th bus corridor. This additional transit attracted the Jackson Health System to develop a new outpatient and private-practice facility.
