Like Little Gables, the community is working on distinguishing its borders from Coral Gables in order to create their own identity as a neighborhood.
High Pines is only a 20–minute drive away from the central business district of Brickell, making banking and other other financial and investment errands easily accomplished.
It is also a 25- minute drive going to Downtown Miami where most of the parks, museums, theaters, and government offices are.
Miami International Airport is only 30 minutes away by car, while American Airlines Arena is about 30-35 minutes from High Pines.
The small community is only a few blocks away from Sunset Mall. The mall has a good number of restaurants that serve a wide variety of cuisines, specialty shops, and grocery stores that offer almost everything one can need.
A few minutes from the neighborhood, residents can get access to Bayside Marketplace and Galeria International Mall in the nearby Downtown.
While in Downtown, the lush greeneries of Museum Park and Bayfront Park can also be visited by High Pines residents.
