Opened in January 2011, the 5.86-acre Miami Beach City Center Redevelopment project consists of New World Center, an innovative facility for music education and performance with state-of-the-art technical capabilities; Miami Beach Sound Scape, an adjacent 2.5-acre public park and event space; and a 556-space municipal parking structure.
The project is located on two city blocks previously used as surface parking lots. New World Center is a unique performance, education, production, and creative space with state-of-the-art capabilities, owned and operated by the New World Symphony (NWS). A global hub for creative expression and collaboration, and a laboratory for the ways music is taught, presented and experienced, the building enables NWS to continue its role as a leader in integrating technology with music education and concert presentation. It is used by NWS for educational, concert, and broadcast activities. he building features a giant, 7,000-square-foot projection wall used for outdoor presentations to audiences in the adjacent park, complemented by an immersive audio system in the outdoor viewing area.
Miami Beach SoundScape is a multi-use park that serves as an urban oasis and a gathering place for cultural and special events. It is a unified expression of passive recreation, pleasure and culture – a space that supports a multitude of day and night uses that, combined with New World Center’s expansive projection wall, marries music, design, landscape and community.
