EDSA, a Fort Lauderdale-based full-service planning, landscape architecture and urban design firm, recently completed and unveiled the design for Gratigny Plateau Park which is located at 885 NW 117 Street in Miami. The major community revitalization project was made possible through a unique public-private sector partnership which was conceived and spearheaded by WPLG-TV (Local 10 News), designed by EDSA and built by the Miller Construction Company.
Designed to resemble a flower signaling new life for a community in need, Gratigny Plateau Park boasts new walking paths, fitness stations, a toddler playground, benches and a butterfly garden providing area residents new opportunities for recreation. Miami-Dade County Commissioner Jean Monestime led efforts to secure $250,000 in funding from the Building Better Communities General Obligation Bond Program, Community Development Block Grant and Park Impact Fees to help expedite the construction. The Park was officially unveiled in a public grand opening event a couple of weeks ago.
EDSA has worked on more than 500 projects in 100 countries including resort destinations, residential communities, cultural and educational environments and urban developments. Some of their major projects currently in the works in South Florida include the planning and landscape design for 1 Hotel & Homes, The Surf Club, Residences at the Miami Beach EDITION and Aloft South Beach.
