The City of Miami Beach has contracted James Corner Field Operations, the firm behind New York's High Line to make changes to Lincoln Road, according to The Miami New Times.
The firm plans to maintain the history of the Morris Lapidus designed mall, but update it with recommendations from current business owners.
The James Corner Field Operations will have a master plan by August or September with construction beginning in 2016.
Terranova Corp. is developing a project at 723 Lincoln Lane and 801 Lincoln Road that will bring two new three story buildings, according to The Real Deal.
This will expand Lincoln Road to 17th Street from the pedestrian promenade. Demolition on the existing building will begin later this month and construction is expected to take 14 months.
The buildings were designed by Shulman + Associates.
