Downtown Miami Homes and Condos

Downtown Miami Real Estate

Miami takes its Native American name from the river that wends its way from its headwaters in the Everglades through the city to Biscayne Bay. Life here has always been tied to the water, both fresh and salt. Miami’s location in the subtropical sun has made it an enduringly popular place to live beside the bay for nearly a century. In its recent past, it has increasingly attracted an international cross-section of savvy European and South American buyers intent on making their primary or secondary homes in the U.S. Known as “The Magic City” for its dazzling beaches, sparkling waters and dynamic nightlife, Miami is equally renowned as the financial and cultural “Gateway to the Americas.” Its rich palette of broad influences makes the city an incomparable 21st-century American melting pot and an extraordinary place to live, work and play. Because of this cosmopolitan diversity, newcomers fit in like natives.

From the global banks and hotels that line its downtown corridor, to the dozens of consulates located here, to the delectable menu of cross-cultural restaurants that populate its über-hip dining neighborhoods, Miami is a contemporary and sophisticated global crossroads. The city’s single-family pocket neighborhoods, gated communities and the extraordinary choice in modern condominiums with resort-level amenities (most of which enjoy bay views) provide buyers with an incredible array of residential choices. With a population of approximately 400,000 and a median age that is dropping every year, Miami is much smaller and much younger than outsiders perceive. The city’s most esteemed hospitals and historic churches are located here, and the world-champion Miami Heat and Miami Marlins play ball at state-of-the-art stadiums within city limits. Also in the heart of town is the stunning Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, a plethora of parks, museums, galleries and downtown and midtown dining along the bay and the Biscayne corridor. The public Metrorail & Metromover system is centered in the city and conveniently connects residents to nearly all quarters of the county. Compared to most U.S. metropolitan markets, Miami is a relatively young, progressive, inclusive city that pulses with high energy -- making life in this tropical paradise exciting, engaging and fluid.
