Plan calls for pop-up park and cafes in shipping containers on a stretch of vacant Omni district land

If there's one thing not lacking in the western reaches of Miami's desolate but very-slowly-coming-to-life Omni district, it's vacant land. So a city agency, neighborhood activists and the Pérez Art Museum Miami have agreed to collaborate on an enticing idea to put some of it to good use right away.

Their plan: to create a pop-up park on seven acres of state-owned land stretching along Interstate 395 from the Arsht Center for the Performing Arts nearly to Interstate 95.
