GreenLink, a new 10-mile stretch of linear park and “Green” space, is receiving help from the University of Miami and other authorities. This fall, UM School of Architecture students will team with a coalition of Miami-Dad Dept. of Economic Resources, and Urban4M to launch a study on the economic impact of the project. In addition to spreading awareness for the new project, the economic impact study is also expected to provide insight on how the linear park can be constructed to provide the greatest possible economic returns to the County. One such return is the improvement of property value surrounding the park. In New York City and Atlanta, for example, the creation of similar eco-conscious linear parks translated to an increase in value for adjacent properties.
