Wynwood and Edgewater, divided by E Coast Ave, are a 15-minute walk apart from each other and, therefore, often treated as one neighborhood alongside the neighboring enclave known as Midtown.

The famous, jaw-dropping Wynwood Walls, which feature a mix of rotating popular artists from around the world, give Wynwood its distinct character. This “outdoor museum” serves as an entertainment district with a hip collection of trendy shops, graffiti art, breweries, and cool restaurants. What used to be sleepy warehouses, is now a totally revitalized neighborhood. It became popular in 2009 and has gained steam ever since. Now, it is also experiencing a technological boom.

Edgewater, like the name suggests, stands at the edge of Biscayne Bay. This peaceful residential area has seen a lot of recent real estate development. It continues to be on the rise with new modern apartment buildings – and represents one of Miami’s best-kept secrets.

If you’re looking for a relaxing, contemporary, sunny, and airy apartment with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Bay and Miami Beach, you can’t go wrong with Edgewater.

Nextdoor, Midtown Miami consists of only 6 blocks of high-rise apartments. People work, live, and play in this trendy and refined locale that places everything you need within walking distance.

Home to luxury residential buildings, the beautiful new M Park, and a big outdoor mall called “The Shops at Midtown,” it resembles the SOHO neighborhood in New York City with its various stores and eclectic eateries. Midtown underwent a few recent developments, and new restaurants and state-of-the-art condos keep rising, which attracts more discerning residents.
