Miami-Dade County and Friends of The Underline broke ground Thursday on the first phase of The Underline – The Brickell Backyard.
The Brickell Backyard consists of a half-mile long segment below Metrorail that extends from the Brickell Metrorail station to the Miami River. It will have many amenities, including a gym, basketball court, performance spaces, outdoor dining, dog parks and more.
Once all phases are completed, The Underline will be Miami-Dade County’s first true mobility corridor uniting all modes of transportation and enhancing accessibility to eight Metrorail stations within its path and the neighboring communities. It will serve 107,000 residents within a 10-minute walk and provide access to public transportation to one University and 24 schools, two hospitals, three urgent care facilities, four major malls, and over 10,000 businesses.
