Baptist Miami Beach | 709 Alton Road
The City of Miami Beach was in need of a centrally located, modern option for healthcare. Together with developer Crescent Heights and nonprofit healthcare provider Baptist Health, we designed a highly accessible hub of community care focused on holistic well-being.
Located on Alton Road, one of Miami Beach’s most popular routes, the new Baptist Miami Beach center provides a new type of mixed-use healthcare experience—one where residents can walk to their appointment, receive care, have lunch, and go shopping all in the same place.
Unlike more traditional healthcare centers, at Baptist Miami Health, we designed a public promenade around glass storefronts to bridge the outdoor sidewalk experience with the goings-on inside the building. The result is a walkable, welcoming center that’s fully integrated into its community setting.

In addition to the medical facilities, the building contains a Community Resource Center for Miami Beach residents and community groups, retail space on the ground floor, and a rooftop terrace with a garden.
