The Miami Innovation District master plan would create a uniquely well-integrated environment for contemporary living and creative technology work.

On an approximately 10-acre, four-block area in Miami’s Park West neighborhood, the team of SHoP, West 8, and developer Michael Simkins, has prepared a master plan for a new special-use district that will provide over 7,000,000 square feet of infrastructure for the future growth of creative technology industries in the city. The Miami Innovation District will be a dense, walkable, experience-rich new neighborhood, bringing to Miami the world-class urban amenities that the global technology workforce increasingly relies on for inspiration and support.

The district is conceived as an urban campus, a complex of mutually-supportive programs including public amenities, targeted retail opportunities, indoor and outdoor spaces for community and campus gathering, performance and exhibition zones, office environments suited to the collaborative work typical of high-performing tech companies, and a variety of housing designed specifically for the generation that will be drawn to work for such companies.
