Underlining urban transformation

Swire Properties in Miami has recently renewed its commitment to The Underline, a 10-mile linear park being developed below Miami's elevated Metrorail. In 2016, Swire Properties committed US$600,000 to become one of the founding sponsors of this transformative project, which aims to beautify and open up underutilised land for community recreational use and as a live arts venue. To coincide with the opening to the public of the park's first mile in early 2021, the company has pledged a further US$500,000 over the next five years.

Once completed, The Underline will form an urban trail linking the Miami River near Brickell Avenue in the north, with the Dadeland South Metrorail Station in the south, encouraging Miami residents to embrace a healthier lifestyle by walking, biking or taking mass transit as an alternative to driving.

The inaugural mile of parkland includes access to the Brickell City Centre Eighth Street Metromover station, adjacent to Swire Properties' Brickell City Centre complex, and Swire will partner with The Underline to bring the Brickell Backyard to life, by co-creating programming that deliver value to residents and engage the community in finding new ways to embrace sustainable living.
