What is the elevation of my property?


Beginning December 2, 2018, and during Art Basel Miami Beach (December 6-9), Pinecrest’s 6,000 households are encouraged to join a newly-formed "Underwater Homeowners Association" and place in their yards “Markers” artistically designed by acclaimed environmental artist Xavier Cortada. The markers depict the property's elevation - how many feet of melting glacial water needs to rise before the property is underwater. The artist will also collaborate with high school students to map the elevation of four major intersections in Pinecrest by painting markers on the roadways.
