Downtown Miami Historic District

Homes For Sale


The Historic District of Downtown Miami is an area that is within the Central Business District of this city. It is called as such due to the many old and historic buildings found here.

The Neighborhood

The Historic District of Downtown Miami is within the boundaries of North Third Street, South Second Street, West Third Avenue, and Miami Court. This area contains 60 buildings that are considered historical due to the fact that these were built during the land boom of the city in the 1920s. The general age of residents here is rather diverse, usually depending on which part of the neighborhood they are staying at. Majority of individuals nearer the bay are between the ages of 30 and 41. Those who live nearer the I95 have an average age of 59.

Just like with Miami CBD, not that many of these residents own the homes they are living in, with a large majority opting to rent than to buy. This may be because of the somewhat high prices of properties in the area, plus the fact that a lot of them are not originally from Miami and are there for the work. Some who do decide to buy do so because of the many things Miami has to offer, one of which is the wealth of historical landmarks in this particular region.

Those who decide to set down roots here often do so because of friends, family, and the fact that they love the community. It is, after all, a city that has not only amazing people and sumptuous food, but also a varied history that goes back more than a century.

Things To Do

Being a part of the Central Business District of Miami, it is not a wonder why this particular area of this city is filled with life. People here love to walk around and marvel at the age-old structures that have helped shape the city into what it is today.

Real Estate Trends

Downtown Miami’s Historic District is right smack in the middle of Miami CBD, which means that it is in the middle of the busy comings and goings of people in this area. The homes that can be found here are usually those that save on space, which basically means that these are homes that are rising up into the sky to help accommodate more in a rather small land area. The increase in the construction of high-rise buildings here can be attributed to the increase in population of this popular area as well.  This can be why prices here have begun to rise as well, with residential units selling for amounts between $220,000 and $489,000. Rental rates range from a low of $1,500 for one room and a high of $2,000.

While most of the residences in the area are from the past three decades, there is a spattering of few old buildings here which are considered historical landmarks. The residents here were also born mostly within the last three decades, with a few having been around for 50 to 60 years. Younger sets live nearer the bay while the older generation chooses to live a bit inland.

When it comes to crime rates in the area, the central part seems to have more of this than the outer parts. This could be the reason why old timers choose to live nearer the edges of the Historic District rather than in the middle of it.
