Miami, FL – The institute of Contemporary Art will soon break ground on its new home. The museum will have a permanent home in the Design District beginning in November.
The Institute for Contemporary Art Museum will finally break ground after many months of resistance from Buena Vista neighbors.
The 37,500 square foot building designed by Spanish firm Aranguren & Gallegos Arquitectos and local arquitect Wolfberg Alvarez will include a 20,000 square feet of exhibit galleries and a 15,000 square foot sculpture garden.
The ICA main benefactors are billionaire auto dealer and wife Norman and Irma Braman as well as design district developer Craig Robins.
The lots for the museum entrance and garden were three duplexes purchased by the benefactors and located on northeast 42nd street between First Avenue and North Miami Avenue. The three duplexes will soon be demolished to start the new construction.
The ICA museum will be completed by 2017. The museum located in Design District will improve Miami’s art culture and bring more visitors to the new up and coming Buena Vista neighborhood and to the most luxurious streets in Miami where couture desginers and luxury desginer brands find their home not many years ago.
Love, Live Miami.
