What has essentially come the unofficial home of Art Basel, Midtown Miami has rapidly been transformed into a hustling and busting city center. The main Midtown development broke ground in 2005 transforming the FEC rail yard into a clean and safe area for recreation and retail. Midtown Miami continues to undergo massive amounts of construction as the area continues to grow with new buildings and businesses opening everyday.
Midtown Miami is wedged between the Florida East Coast Railway and I-95 and spans from North 29th St. to I-195. The project was originally planned as a large-scale urban development with 8 high-rise residential buildings, a hotel, 2 parks and The Shops at Midtown, consisting of shopping, recreation, dining and entertainment. The project would go on to crash 2 years later with only 2 residential buildings completed, but was reinvigorated in 2011 with plans to complete The Shops and continue with development of residential buildings. The Shops at Midtown are meant to simulate SOHO from New York. Art Basel has made its home right in Midtown Miami with Art Miami and Spectrum amongst other shows attracting visitors to the area from all over the world.
The completed residential buildings have become an attractive option for both buyers and renters alike due to the full-service market the area offers. Midtown currently is one of the few places in Miami where everything you could possibly need is in walking distance from your apartment. The area is also kept extremely safe and clean. Midtown 2 and Midtown 4 have been well received by the market and are very hot buildings to buy or rent. Both buildings take cues from New York's SOHO with a "Miami twist" and the pool decks create a popular urban oasis. Midtown Miami is definitely an area on the rise and worth looking into whether you are looking to buy an investment property, personal property or rent your next apartment.
