Midtown Miami is the collective term for the Wynwood and Edgewater neighborhoods of Miami, Florida, north of Downtown and south of the Miami Design District. It is roughly bound by North 20th Street to the south, I-195 to the north, I-95 to the west and Biscayne Bay to the east.
In 2005, construction began on the “Midtown Miami” development between North 29th and 36th Street and Miami Avenue and the Florida East Coast Railway (FEC) on what was historically an FEC rail yard.
Midtown started to become what it is today in 2005 with the construction of Midtown Miami condos. The area has since grown quickly, and is home to Shops at Midtown, an outdoor shopping area designed to mimic New York’s SOHO neighborhood, and home to many national and local stores and restaurants such as Target, Guess, HomeGoods, Marshalls, Baru Urbano, Novecento & IT Lounge, Spris, Bar Louie, 100 Montaditos, World of Beer, My Ceviche, Five Guys Burgers & Fries, 4D Gelateria, Lime Fresh Mexican Grill, Lagniappe, Sustain, Cheese Course, and an abundance of upscale apartments. A fair amount of office businesses have also taken up residence in Midtown in office buildings, in industries ranging from interior decor to marketing agency services, and more.
