Midtown Miami … Recreating the Look & Feel of New York’s SoHo & Meat Packing District

MIAMI’S MIDTOWN is starting to take on the look and feel of New York’s Meat Packing and SoHo Districts.  

Miami has a new  “fashionably-trendy” hot spot… offering walkability… a neighborhood feel … nightlife… shopping and dining … entertainment … art … and a vibrant interactive community in the areas of  MIDTOWN  and the MIAMI DESIGN DISTRICT.   Wynwood, Midtown and the Design District are all  pretty much adjacent to one another – each of them located  immediately north of Downtown Miami … and  within blocks of the “10 billion dollar mile”.  

A host of trendy new restaurants, new condo construction, shops and restaurants  have seemingly sprung up overnight in Midtown and the Design District …  With the Miami Art Festival  (and influx of art galleries, dining options and stores popping up)   Midtown planted itself on the map at the end of 2011 …  and made it the talk of Miami in a matter of a few months.

Condos in Midtown can be bought for around $200.00 a square foot … brand new…   and range in price from around $200,000.00 – upward .

Midtown Miami and the Design District are expected to catapault  Miami onto the radar screen as one of the premier shopping capitals of the world within the next year or so …  making  Miami an even more  fashionable destination.    

 Hermes and Louis Vuitton have apparently announced that they are closing their stores in Bal Harbour and relocating them to Miami’s Design District.    Other newcomers expected to open shops in Miami’s Design District this year include Bulgari,  Celine,  Moet Hennessy, Christian Dior, Fendi, De Beers, Cartier, Pucci, Ermengilio Zegna.   The area will be home to some 400,000 square feet of stores and shopping … not to mention  restaurants.  Among the restaurants already on the map (and highly tauted)  are Sugarcane, Cheese Course, and Salumeria 104.   

Adding to Midtown Miami and The Design District’s appeal are their close proximity to Miami Beach  and easy access to and from Miami International Airport (15 minutes)…. and proximity to major highways, Jackson Memorial Hospital/UM Health,  Key Biscayne and the bay and ocean.
