Miami is definitely a picturesque city - the stylish mixture of Art Deco and stunning modern architecture, the sublime light at sunset and sunrise and of course the beautiful white sands and toned bodies on its beaches. So perhaps it's not surprising that the contemporary arts scene is flourishing in the city.
However, with the glamour of the city, brings the glamorous real estate prices, presenting challenges for artists and other creatives who are attracted to the beautiful city for their work. Keen to retain the artistic soul of the city, Miami Beach City officials have announce the creation of a special residential zone in the Collins Park area which will offer incentives to keep the creative population in the city. The Cultural Arts Neighborhood District Overlay (CANDO) project will attract the development of affordable housing, with smaller units than are typically allowable by City planning regulation. The zone is sited close to some of the major cultural institutions of the city, such as the City Ballet, the Bass Museum of Art and the Miami Convention Center.
The Arte City development in the CANDO zone, offers some premium quality apartments at reasonable prices.
