The Design District is a planned urban center in the heart of historic Buena Vista in Miami, Florida. This community has been around for over 100 years and has a storied history with a happy ending. The community, originally part of Buena Vista, had many residents as early as the 1920’s. As the real estate market fluctuated – this area of Buena Vista was negatively impacted by urban sprawl and underdevelopment. By the 1980’s, this area of Buena Vista had little residential or commercial Design District real estate interest. That all changed in the early 2000’s when the area had a makeover and re-branded itself as a modern urban center with an emphasis on art and design.
The community continued to develop with an emphasis on modern architecture and design. Many modern buildings have been built and older buildings have been preserved or updated with modern designs. The Design District is known for its fine dining options, shopping and art galleries. The Design District participates in Midtown’s monthly ArtWalk which has many art enthusiasts walking the streets of Wynwood and the Design District. While art galleries and restaurants have opened all around the Design District, shops like Sephora, Marc Jacobs, Givenchy and Fendi have made is a leading area for fashion and clothing shopping. Louis Vuitton announced a store coming to the Design District soon.
The success of the Design District, Wynwood and Buena Vista are in part to intelligently designed communities but also the reborn interest in urban living among residents of major metropolitan areas. As more and more people are moving back to the city, areas like Wynwood, Design District and Buena Vista will continue to be great real estate investments.
The Design District has variety of property types from condos and townhomes to large historic homes. This area is a great place to live, work and play. Design District residents are surrounded by amazing dining and shopping options as well as being very close to great urban locations like Midtown, Buena Vista and more. It is only a short drive from Downtown Miami, Miami Beach and more.
