Coconut Grove Waterfront and Spoil Islands Master Plan
On May 24, 2004, RFQ 03-04-031 titled Master Plan for Coconut Grove Waterfront and Spoil Islands, a Coastal Recreational Park was issued. The City of Miami sought a multidisciplinary team of consultants
with demonstrated experience in waterfront landscape architecture, urban design, environmental
and economic expertise to submit a response. Six responses were received from qualified design teams followed by an Evaluation Committee process which ranked the firms and recommended
Sasaki Associates, Inc. and their team of sub-consultants as the most qualified to prepare the master plan.
A comprehensive public involvement process followed the July 28, 2005 City Commission authorization
to engage Sasaki Associates, resulting in a unanimously approved master plan that reflects the growth and desires of the community. The Final Master Plan was presented and approved by the Planning Advisory Board, Waterfront Advisory Board, Coconut Grove Village Council, and finally by the City Commission on July 24, 2008. The Master Plan includes cost estimates and a phasing strategy to serve as a guiding tool for the future implementation of all master plan components.
