Architecture firm BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group) has unveiled plans for a new Miami mixed-use development that will be built on stilts in the city.

New Atlas writer Adam Williams describes the development:

Slated for the Allapattah district, Miami Produce will take up an area of 125,000 sq m (around 1.3 million sq ft) and be defined by eight stilted buildings comprising residential, office, and hotel space. They will be topped by rooftop gardens open to the public that offer choice views of the surrounding area and, according to the firm, provide "a variety of elevated recreational environments."

Three existing warehouses on the site will be retained and renovated. These will be used as restaurants, cafes, retail space, and a school. Elsewhere, the site will include garden areas, urban farming, and underground parking. Renders also depict the underground car park being used as some kind of meeting place or nightclub venue.
