Miami Beach to Create New $3.15 Million Performing Arts Space in Collins Park

Published Date: April 16, 2024

The City of Miami Beach is embarking on a $3.15 million project to create a new intimate performing arts space at the Collins Park Rotunda, adjacent to The Bass Museum of Art (2100 Collins Ave). To commemorate the start of construction, a groundbreaking ceremony will be held on Tuesday, April 16, at 6 p.m. in Collins Park.


Interim City Manager Rickelle Williams expressed excitement about the project, stating that the reimagined Collins Park Rotunda will serve as a venue for various types of creative expression, catering to residents and visitors of all ages. The new space is designed to host more intimate cultural gatherings and performances compared to larger venues in the area.


The existing 1,960-square-foot rotunda will undergo extensive renovations, including an 895-square-foot addition for an entrance lobby and restrooms, new exterior glazing and doors, and upgraded interior finishes. The renovations will also include improvements to the roofing, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems, as well as enhancements for ADA compliance. Exterior improvements will feature new pedestrian LED lighting, concrete walkways, landscaping, and irrigation.


The project’s funding comes from the city’s Arts and Culture General Obligation Bond and a substantial grant from the Florida Department of State Division of Arts and Culture. While some parking spaces near the Collins Park work zone may be restricted during construction, no significant traffic impacts are anticipated during the estimated year-long construction period.
