The Reconstruction of Miami Beach
Miami Beach has always been a place of constructing dreams, since it was first purchased by the father and son duo, Henry and Charles Lum. The first structure built on this oceanfront haven was the Biscayne House of Refuge, which was constructed in 8176 at around present-day 72ndStreet and Collins Avenue. In March 1915, the Town of Miami Beach was chartered; and, by 1917 the town had become the City of Miami Beach. One of the main developers of Miami Beach was Carl Fisher, of Fisher Island fame. The 1920s became a time for the wealthy industrialists from the north and Midwest to build their winter homes in this waterfront oasis.From the 1920s onward, the City of Miami Beach has experienced waves of construction and reconstruction. Currently, Miami Beach is undergoing a period of reconstruction; so, take a peek at some of the current on goings.
