Welcome to Downtown Miami

Home to one of the country’s most spectacular waterfront skylines, Downtown Miami is the central business and finance center in South Florida and serves as an important commercial and cultural nexus between the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean. As recently as twenty years ago, the area would empty after business hours, but a recent influx of development and urban migration has since transformed this region into a lively and hip neighborhood.
