North of the Miami Design District and South of Little Haiti sits an historic residential neighborhood marked by blend of 1920s era single-family homes and more modern townhomes and multifamily buildings known as Buena Vista.
Buena Vista was one of the first villages in Miami. This neighborhood is home to the Buena Vista East Historic District, which features architecture from the 1920s Miami Land Boom.
Just outside the urban core—about two blocks away from the Design District and Biscayne Bay—Buena Vista offers houses with six or more bedrooms, many of which were once home to immigrants from North Carolina and Georgia. The architecture is a blend of Revival, Mission, Craftsman, Mediterranean and Art Deco. The historic streets are lined with large trees that offer shade to walkways.
With the resurgence of nearby Downtown Miami, more investors are taking notice of Buena Vista’s historic charm. New restaurants and retail shops have entered the neighborhood, increasing the value of surrounding Buena Vista real estate. The neighborhood offers quick access to Interstate 95, Brickell, South Beach and the Miami International Airport.
With significant revitalization underway in the Design District, Buena Vista prices are likely to continue rising. Currently, prices and property types for rent and for sale in the neighborhood vary widely, from small apartments and condos to large residential dwellings with multiple stories on large plots of land.
