Midtown Miami is a relatively new neighborhood. Construction and development began in 2005 between North 29th and 36th Street and Miami Avenue and the Florida East Coast Railway (FEC). Despite set-backs from the Great Recession Midtown has flourished into a large-scale, urban development. Collectively the neighborhood encompasses Wynwood and Edgewater just north of Downtown and south of the Miami Design District and conveniently bound by North 20th Street to the south, I-195 to the north, I-95 to the west and Biscayne Bay to the east.
Midtown has grown quickly and was designed to mimic New York’s SOHO neighborhood. High-rise apartment complexes and office businesses have also taken up residence in Midtown with industries ranging from interior decor to marketing agencies and more. At Büro Urbano urban workspace, office spaces are provided for small businesses. Midtown has also become home to Art Miami art fair, which takes place during Miami’s Art Basel week.
