The beating urban heart of the city, Downtown is at once the historic birthplace of Miami and the hub of its most cutting-edge innovations in live-work-play community development.
For a Miami Home with Prized & Lofty Bay Views,
You Can’t Beat Downtown Living
The neighborhood’s official slogan calls Downtown Miami the place “Where Work Meets Play” — and it seriously lives up to that claim. Part booming epicenter of international business and part burgeoning collection of cultural and active offerings, the neighborhood has seen a doubling of its population in the past 10 years. Really, the slogan should be “Where Work Meets Play Meets Home.”
To engage the interests and energy of all these new residents, many of them young professionals, Downtown Miami has also welcomed a wave of new restaurants, nightlife, green spaces, galleries, performing arts, shops, sports centers, outdoor concerts, festivals, marinas, and spectacular new multi-use developments rising up alongside iconic landmarks. It can almost sound overwhelming, but it’s actually a fantastically livable place. You don’t even need a car to get around and experience it all. With the free light rail Metromover, a bicycle, and/or your own two feet, you have all you need to explore every corner of Downtown at your own whim and pace. There’s no way to cover it all here – you’ll want to check out some of the many great guides like Greater Miami & The Beaches and Timeout.
On a personal note, among my favorite things to do and recommend in Downtown Miami are lunching on the riverfront with friends or new clients (a.k.a. new friends!); spending an inspiring afternoon at Museum Park — I can’t get enough of the Pérez Art Museum and the Frost Museum of Science; taking a waterfront stroll or simply resting in the shade of a palm tree at Bayfront Park; and riding the elevated Metromover all around the city on its three loops, getting a gorgeous low-flying bird’s eye view of it all, spotting new things to check-out and share every time.
So, where to settle in and call this incredible neighborhood your home? Among the most exciting Downtown Miami real estate choices I recommend are Brickell City Centre, Miami Worldcenter, and the remarkable, one-of-a-kind Aston Martin Residences. Brickell City Centre is a thriving, innovative, artistic mixed-use space comprising two residential towers, two office buildings, a hotel, and a world-class fashion and culinary complex. Miami Worldcenter, which is currently under-construction, will be a 10-block mixed-used development that’s one of the largest private master-planned projects in the United States. It will also include residential, retail, and hospitality spaces with destination dining, prime entertainment, a promenade inspired by Europe’s famous pedestrian streets, and still more.
And then there’s the Aston Martin Residences at 300 Biscayne Blvd. In a league of its own, this 66-story waterfront development by the beloved British luxury auto maker is the only one of its kind in the world. Already 35% sold even though it won’t open until 2021, it includes 1- to 5-bedroom residences ranging from $700,000 to $50 million for a tri-level penthouse. The penthouse has its own pool and spa and oh, by the way, comes with an Aston Martin Vulcan — one of only 26 in existence. There are also 4 floors of amenities that include an infinity pool, spa, dining room, fitness center, movie theaters, and the list goes on.
Watching Downtown Miami transform from the desolate, neglected place to stay away from that it was in the 1970s, when I arrived in Miami, into the glittering, world-class metropolis of today and tomorrow has been a show-stopping experience.
