North Miami has come into its own as a thriving and dynamic community. Once a blighted and neglected post-industrial district, it’s becoming increasingly revitalized through ambitious residential, commercial, and public works projects.
A testament to this optimistic development is the much-anticipated arrival of a new Whole Foods store, which is set to open in early summer. Located on the site of an old Office Depot store on 12100 Biscayne Blvd, the high-end grocer of organic and healthy food will cater to the city’s growing number of new residences.
Curbed Miami, a website that covers local real estate, reports that the building is a significant improvement over the previous structure, with lush landscaping, an aesthetic and modern design, and ample parking. The attractive building will provide jobs, fill a niche market, and help bring more life in this increasingly thriving area.
Indeed, for such a prominent company to choose North Miami as an area to expand into is a reflection the city’s new-found life as a center of urban living and entrepreneurship. Many young professionals, urban living enthusiasts, and start-ups have begun moving into the area, and even celebrities like the Kardashians have spent time there. In another article, Curbed Miami notes that location is one of North Miami’s key strengths:
It’s a blue collar town squashed between the noticeably more affluent enclaves of Miami Shores, El Portal, and across the bridge Bal Harbour, Bay Harbor Islands, and even Surfside, all of which will use the new grocery store. But this geography, coupled with a new Tri-Rail station along the FEC tracks – not to mention their eagerness to embrace reality show celebrities – could mean a lot for the future of North Miami.
In other words,North Miamiis at the epicenter of tremendous growth and opportunity, which is why so many businesses and residents are eyeing it as a rewarding place to live or operate.
