On Wednesday December 16, 2022 the City Commission approved a contract award of more than $35 million to Buslam Company Partners Inc. for construction of Bayshore Park, the 19-acre passive park in the heart of Miami Beach. Approval of the contract award required securing additional funding beyond the currently funded $26 million project budget. The City Commission approved a $10 million capital budget amendment for the project. The City is pending approval for a $3 million grant from the State of Florida for the remaining gap.
Buslam is currently working in the City on North Beach Oceanside Park. The City expects to break ground within 3-4 months of securing this funding.
Thanks go to Commissioner Fernandez for sponsoring the award of the contract on the Commission agenda, and to the entire Commission for supporting and approving this long-awaited and much anticipated community amenity. Thanks go to staff from the City’s Office of Capital Improvement Projects (CIP) for moving the project forward.
