CORAL GABLES CHARRETTE: DOWNTOWN
Pedestrian Passages Proposal The Master Plan proposes a series of midblock passages strategically located as shown here. Some may require the removal of an existing building to be replaced by a new combination of walkway, storefronts and landscaped courts. In exchange for the public easement for the pas- sage, this type of development can be made attractive for the property owner with a package of incentives such as public parking spaces for the offices or apartments on the upper floors. Alternatively, the City could buy one of these properties and redevelop it appropriately as a catalytic example for the private sector to emulate.
