Raising South Beach

search the entire Original Green site


   Miami Beach began raising some of the lowest streets on South Beach a couple years ago, which ensures that those streets won’t flood decades into the future; hopefully a century or longer. But because only the streets are raising, there will be problems for nearby buildings that are now sitting below the streets. This video examines the challenges that various buildings will face, according to how they are built and how they sit in relation to the street.
