Planning, Design & Transportation 

Already a major global city for businesses, residents, and visitors alike, Downtown Miami continues to evolve. As our population grows, the Miami DDA works closely with key stakeholders and our fellow residents to ensure we can get around using all modes of transporation. Furthermore, we strive everyday to create active and inviting open spaces. 

Ways We’re Making Downtown Miami Even Greater

  • Community Spaces & Streets
    • Ways we’re creating vibrant public spaces including Biscayne Green and the revitalization of Flagler Street.
