The New Face of Downtown Miami

February 14, 2009 by Lucas Lechuga

Downtown Miami has changed tremendously within the past 4-5 years.  I just wanted to share a few pictures that I took earlier this week.  As you can see, the construction cranes are gone from the Downtown Miami skyline.

New Downtown Miami condo developments 50 Biscayne, Vizcayne, Marina Blue, 900 Biscayne Bay, Ten Museum Park and Marquis can be seen in the pictures above and directly below.  The American Airlines Arena, Bayside Marketplace and Bayfront Park appear in the picture above as well.

Funny you would mention that ” the construction cranes are gone” because back in 2005-2006 when I was visiting Miami very often, I was in complete awe from the number of cranes standing in Miami. At that time, visiting from Montreal, Canada and wanting to invest in a commercial space to open a restaurant, I remember thinking to myself, where in the heck (for lack of a better term) will they find people to fill in all these projects. I would ask my nephew to stop the car, who at the time was driving me around town, and just try… Read more »

The green portion of Museum Park is a ways off towards actual construction but the funding portion was approved as a part of the Mega Plan. About $65 million dollars for the green portion of the park. The Science Museum is also a ways off towards construction with funding about 50% plus in place. The new Miami Art Museum in the park is the furthest along with I believe almost 100% funding in place – a spectacular design by the French/Swiss architects which u can see by going to Miami Art Museums website – with construction to start within 6-9… Read more »

I was always amazed at how many cranes we had in Downtown Miami. A few times I counted about 30 and I’m sure there were a few more hiding behind some of the buildings.

Who cares what you thought Bill? Reality is units will be filled (either rented or purchased by end buyers, at the right price) and the city will have the population needed to support all the commercial projects proposed.

We are here for the long term and like Joe says “Long term we are strong” after this whole mess is over (give it no more that 2 more years to stabilize) where are persons will be willing to go, to a place with brand new infrastructure or not?

Why is Trulia reporting false sales?

Please look at all recent sales in Bay Point, UpperEast side, Miami, FL 33137 (October 2008 – January 2009) as reported on this site and crosscheck them on Miami-dade website.

http://gisims2.miamidade.gov/myhome/propmap.asp

You will find that not single sale has been recorded. What is Trulia’s policy on publishing these sales? Do they allow Realtors to post any information without doing due diligence? Is this information being used to inflate the appraisals?

Particularly interesting is: “(give it no more that 2 more years to stabilize)”. Depends on the definition of “stabilize”.

The CVS / Walgreens on his street corner must have run short of Lithium!!!

I agree with the poster above who thinks things are still overpriced but at least prices are a lot more palatable than they were a year ago. The city is really starting to come together. I fly often and love coming in from the east over Brickell. Really shows how much change has happened in the last 3 years. I also think Brickell/Downtown is unique that it is the only place where you can live and work without needing auto transportation. Pretty cool.

By stabilize I mean units finding their true occupants.

I stated above: “Particularly interesting is: “(give it no more that 2 more years to stabilize)”. Depends on the definition of “stabilize”.” Maybe? Could be? Should be? 2009? 2010? 2011? 2015? 2020?
