Miami is a city that is evolving day-to-day and more and more people are coming to visit it. But not all of them are just short-term visitors, more than 250 people move to Miami every day. But why wouldn't everyone want to be here? All-year sunshine, incredible culture, ambiance and people and a flourishing financial district... It is a paradise for anyone. As the city continues to grow, emerging neighborhoods such as Edgewater continue to create stronger identities.
The emerging district of Edgewater is gaining more international attention every day. It is one of the fastest growing neighborhoods in Miami-Dade. Developers have been working hard for the past years to make sure Edgewater is placed on the map. They’ve been creating properties that will fit a new younger audience. And, we have to say, they've done a great job! This makes me go back and think of past times when something similar was happening to the South Pointe neighborhood. A crucial revival took place in South of Fifth more than a decade ago that made properties prices in this area appreciate to almost double its original price.
Same happened to Downtown Miami and it's happening once again. For the past 9 years, Downtown has increased its population by 30% which has shoved more buyers to neighborhoods nearby, especially to Edgewater. Edgewater is now becoming the new SoFi!
With an unparalleled Bayfront location near prime Miami neighborhoods such as Downtown or Brickell, this spot is extremely well located and convenient. Between Northeast 17th street and Julia Tuttle Causeway, Edgewater is a 10-minute drive from the airport. It is near Wynwood, Midtown and Design District, which gives it the perfect spot to be walking distance from the most incredible hotspots, bars, restaurants, art galleries, offices, and much more! It also offers easy access to the MacArthur Causeway that links it to Miami Beach.
Clearly, all these advantages have been noticed by inhabitants, which has pushed a selling record time. Developments have also been facing a transformation, as more luxury condos such as the Elysee condo, Missoni Baia, Paraiso Bay, or Biscayne Beach Residences, have been built and have had a great welcome from property-seekers.
It is not only a young active neighborhood. For the past years, Edgewater has become a family area, as more common areas such as jogging paths, green spaces, schools, dog parks, playgrounds, and parks, such as the Margaret Pace Park, have been developed. This has created a calmer ambiance compared to Brickell or Downtown. Buyers that believe in Edgewater are coming from all around the world and are making the neighborhood stronger.
Bottom line, Edgewater has an ideal location and there is no better time to consider this neighborhood as one of the fast-growing investable areas in Miami.
