Bayside in the Park Portfolio

Identifier: SFC1811

Scope and Contents

The portfolio consists of a dark green box (19 1/4" x 12 3/4" x 2 1/2"), emblazoned with the project’s distinctive pink shell logo, that holds the other five materials. Two are spiral-bound books, one describing the Proposal and the other introducing the Team. There is a booklet describing the Concept of the project, as well as a Sketchbook consisting of 15 loose-leaf architectural drawings enclosed in a folder that envisions the proposed plan. The last material within the box is a hardcover copy of Glasshouses and Wintergardens of the Nineteenth Century that served as inspiration for the envisioned concept of Bayside in the Park.

Language of Materials



This portfolio was submitted by JMB/Federated Realty to the City of Miami’s 1983 bidding competition to develop a waterfront marketplace in the Bayside area of downtown. They took their inspiration from Victorian gardens and glasshouses, and hoped to bring that particular aesthetic to the area. Ultimately it was rejected in favor of another project proposal from the Rouse Company, fresh off a wave of recent successes that they anticipated replicating in Miami.

Arrangement Note

There is no particular arrangement needed as the box serves as the container for the other materials.
