Downtown Miami

Downtown Miami is a melting pot of cultures and haven for anyone looking for luxury.

Welcome to Downtown Miami

The glittering cityscape includes plenty of luxury condos in the financial and cultural nexus of South Florida.
A microcosm of the United States, Downtown Miami is a melting pot of cultures and haven for anyone looking for luxury. Residents enjoy the eclectic community as much as the ever-present and spectacular waterfront. Just as South Florida relies on Downtown Miami as its business and financial hub, so too the city is a nexus of Latin American and Caribbean lifestyles. Newcomers to Downtown Miami often stay there for the fantastic views, mod vibe, and round-the-clock entertainment.

  • Fine dining out the gills
  • Melting pot of various cultures
  • Unique shopping boutiques and districts
  • Luxury homes and high-rise condos

Local Lifestyle

At the turn of the 21st century, downtown Miami would often empty after business hours, as employees flocked home to surrounding neighborhoods or else vacated downtown for happy hour in Miami Beach. However, a recent upturn in development has drawn people back to the city, transforming Downtown Miami into a vibrant neighborhood worthy of its setting. Downtown Miami is an excellent base for young professionals looking to walk to work and live near the center of action. Somewhat surprisingly, family-run businesses coexist with luxury condos, and the city center is pedestrian-friendly, offering access to the best restaurants, nightlife, and live music.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

With hundreds of restaurants in Downtown Miami, you can’t go wrong and will find quality eateries for just about any occasion. Some of the most famous dishes in Miami include stone crabs, Cuban sandwiches, arepas, ceviche, and Key lime pie. For unforgettable find dining experiences, try Mignonette (upmarket seafood in a former gas station), Soya e Pomodoro (Italian food with live jazz), or Novikov Miami (Asian fusion cuisine with outdoor seating).
Shoppers will no doubt enjoy Mary Brickell Village, an open-air shopping center with style to spare. The Seybold Jewelry Building contains hundreds of jewelers, so you’re bound to find the right gem. And if you’re in town between October and April, check out a Miami Heat game at FTX Arena.

Things to Do

While there is no beach access in Downtown Miami, one way for new residents and visitors to see the city is to plan a day or two around the city’s architecture and cultural institutions. Those interested in architecture should consider a self-guided tour of Downtown Miami’s most famous buildings, including the DuPont Building (Miami’s only Art Deco skyscraper) and the Freedom Tower, both of which date back to the early 1900s. 
Once at the Freedom Tower, you can kick off another tour of the museums and cultural institutions found in Downtown Miami. The Freedom Tower is home to the Museum of Art and Design (MOAD). You then can walk, bike, or scooter a mile north to the Perez Art Museum located on the waterfront within Maurice A. Ferre Park. Right next door is the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science. The Arsht Center for the Performing Arts is a few blocks north of the park, and you can finish the day at Olympia Theater, a must-see venue back south on 2nd Ave., and the Arsht Center for the Performing Arts.
