Downtown Miami

Downtown Miami is the central business district of South Florida, Miami-Dade County and Miami, Florida. Brickell Avenue/Biscayne Boulevard is the main north-south road in downtown, and Flagler Street is the main east-west road in the Central Business District. As of 2006, there are approximately 31,881 year-round residents in Downtown. In contrast, there are approximately 17,500 residents in nearby Brickell. As of 2009, over 190,000 office employees work in Downtown and Brickell.

Downtown, or sometimes referred to as the "Central Business District", is the area north of Broadway, east of I-95, and south of 17th Terrace.Inside of this area includes Park West, the area due west of Bicentennial Park and northern Brickell. Other areas that are many times adjoined with Downtown is the area to the north: Midtown, which is north of 17th Terrace and Brickell to the south.

 

Public Transportation in the downtown area is intensely used and a vital part of downtown life. The Metromover train system runs 3 lines through downtown (the downtown loop, the Omni loop, and the Brickell loop), and the Metrorail, Miami-Dade County's heavy rail system, makes 3 stops in the downtown area at the Historic Overtown/Lyric Theatre Station, Government Center Station, and the Brickell Station.

The Metrorail has stops throughout Miami as well as Miami-Dade County with connections to Miami International Airport, all Miami-Dade County bus lines, Tri-Rail and Amtrak.

 

 

Demographics:

As of 2000, Downtown Miami had a population of 13,932 residents, with 6,397 households, and 2,633 resident families. The median household income was $38,702.66. The racial makeup of the neighborhood was 64.27% Hispanic or Latino of any race, 9.17% Black or African American, 23.08% White (non-Hispanic), and 3.49% Other races (non-Hispanic).

2006 Census estimate, shows over 31,881 residents, with 189,164 residents in the immediate Downtown/Brickell area.

Many foreign countries consulates-general are located alongside Biscayne Boulevard, in the Downtown Miami area.

 

During the last decade, a wave of construction has completely changed the downtown and Bay area of Miami. The famous Miami Skyline has grown and multiplied with dozens of sky-scrapers. Although, in view of the present real estate problems, many of these projects are in deep problems, the future is theirs.

There is an ebullient life in the formerly sleepy downtown of Miami. A young crowd is increasingly making its presence recognized. Luxurious bars and restaurants are opening at a dazzling pace. We definitely recommend our readers to explore and enjoy the new Miami.  Spend some time in the Guzman Center for the Performing Arts, or the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, the second-largest performing arts center in the U.S. Watch an NBA game at the American Airlines Arena; walk the Bicentennial Park on the bay, visit the Freedom Tower, shop or dine in the Bayside Market Place, or in the Jewelry district, visit the exciting new Brickell entertainment areas. Believe me, there is a lot to do in Downtown Miami.

 

There has been so much new constructions in the Miami Downtown area that it has become a bit confusing to keep track of all the new  buildings. Some of them had many problems but have been finally completed, other have financing problems, and others are doing just fine.

 

 

 

Here is a list of most condo buildings in this downtown area, built between 2004 and 2009. I have included the GRAN FKA even though it is from 1986.
Some Loft buildings that shouldn't be in the downtown area, since they are more like in a "Midtown" location have also been included.

Overall this information can be useful as a directory of new construction in Downtown Miami.
