Miami Transformed

Brickell CitiCentre breaks ground.

In addition, we will soon have a Whole Foods market a block away from our office.  It will be part of the last phase of a development known as Metropolitan Miami.  That will complete development of the duPont area, which, ten years ago, consisted of three city blocks of parking lots just west of Biscayne Boulevard and across Biscayne Way from the Miami River.

Add to this the transportation revolution that will include a new MetroRail connection to the just-completed transportation center at MIA, and you will have something entirely different from the downtown I knew when I started work there in 1970 as a summer law clerk for Smathers & Thompson.
