Wynwood is a previously abandoned area of warehouses and dilapidated buildings which has become the epicenter of Miami’s organic, artist-driven urban renewal. Home to over 130 galleries, shops, restaurants and bars, The Wynwood Arts District is considered one of the largest street-art installations in the world. Every second Saturday of each month, during the Wynwood Art Walk Miami, thousands of people fill the streets as galleries open their doors to novice and expert art enthusiasts, who line up at dozens of gourmet food trucks to snack between gallery visits. Property values in the Wynwood area have skyrocketed as developers and artists vie for land, and control of the future face of the neighborhood.
Just to the east, across Biscayne Boulevard, the neighborhood of Edgewater is emerging as a highly desirable location to own a waterfront Miami condo. Miami condos such as Opera Tower Miami, Quantum Miami, Paramount Bay and Icon Bay Miami, provide residents the best in luxury high rise living, with sweeping bay views, and proximity to Wynwood, the Design District, Downtown Miami and the Arts and Entertainment District, anchored by the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts and the American Airlines Arena, home of the Miami Heat.
