Under Metrorail

The right of way is over the median of SW 1st Ave. in this area north of the Brickell station.  Part of the grassy stretches below has been established and marked as "Beethoven Promenade" by the city-county.  A sign marking the way advises that "We can all touch his greatness when we allow the poetry of his music to inhabit our soul, elevate our spirit, and unite us as one community."

A high-rise residential building is under construction ahead in this 2008 view, which looks northbound toward the Miami River.  There has been substantial redevelopment on the southern and western fringes of downtown.  The downturn in the economy and the real estate market experienced in recent years has had a major impact on Miami, and Florida.
