9 design firms respond for town’s Legacy Park project
Town manager Rafael Casals says the project is one schedule.

The Town of Cutler Bay’s 16-acre Legacy Park and Municipal Complex project, which will be the site of the new Town Hall and other amenities on Old Cutler Road north of SW 212th Street, moved a step closer to reality with the responses from nine architectural design firms. The responses were received on Jan. 10.

The town had issued an RFQ (Request For Quote — a process where potential suppliers or service providers are asked to submit their price quotations) to design the final site plan for the complex.

The nine firms responding were Bermello Ajamil & Partners, Leo A. Daly, MC Harry Associates, Song & Associates, Synalovski Romanik Saye, Taller Aller Architecture & Design, Valle Valle & Partners, and Wannemacher Jensen Architects. Cutler Bay’s Town Selection Committee will shortlist the nine to the top three qualified firms.

The top three firms will prepare designs for the site to be presented during a Town Council Workshop on Mar. 15. The town council will make the final selection of the firm that will design the site on Mar. 22.

Town manager Rafael Casals is pleased that the town is still on schedule with the project.

“Those designs will be evaluated by a selection committee comprised of the department heads — the Community Development director, the Parks & Recreation director and the Public Works director,” Casals said. “Those individuals will now rank, score and evaluate those nine firms in order to create a short list of the top three firms.

“Those firms will then be directed to go ahead and design our municipal complex based on the comments received from the public in over 23 public involvement meetings, 900 online comments and also the comments from the residents regarding the University of Miami conceptual plans.”

In January of 2020, the Town of Cutler Bay finalized the “land swap” deal, exchanging the Town Hall building and adjacent property at 10720 Caribbean Blvd. for the 16 acres of vacant land commonly referred to as the “Potato Field,” immediately north of the site of the new Publix Supermarket. The site will house the new town hall, a park, a few restaurants and other features.
