Miami Beach Aquatic Center and Park

This mixed-use  structure is in the heart of Miami Beach located just one block west of the beach on A1A. It includes 500 parking spaces, a 50 meter competition pool, a 25 meter multi-purpose pool, a 7500 sf branch library, 10, 000 sf of retail, a teen center, fitness center and a 3-acre park. It also includes a resiliency hub and is designed to accommodate future residential and office use when less parking is needed. The 72nd Street Community Complex will serve as an urban living room for the North Beach district of Miami Beach. The intent is for the complex to function as a social and ecological condenser to anchor a community space—A Community Living Room—that provides a central gathering space and furthers current investments in an emerging town center core that is reinvesting in a walkable and livable district. Furthermore, the Living Room approach serves as a community lounge, active recreation hub, social gathering place, parking, and resilient/adaptive infrastructure. It is a place ideal for relaxing and socializing, as well as provides a recreational anchor for the North Beach district.
