South Beach Real Estate
South Beach has been called the American Riviera and Art Deco Playground. The Art Deco style of the region has been a staple of South Beach since the 1930’s when Nautical Modern and Streamline modern architecture became popular. South Beach is still home to the largest collection of Streamline Modern Art Deco architecture in the world.
It is well-known for its fine sugar-white sand, colorful buildings, world-class boutiques, galleries and stores, as well as gourmet beachside cuisine. South Beach regularly ranks among the world’s best beaches with good reason. Sprawling for 2-plus miles along Miami Beach’s southeastern tip, this stretch of sand is extraordinarily wide and perpetually lapped by turquoise waves.
South Beach attracts the rich and famous and youthful, but it now is recognized around the world as worthy of a stay or a visit by everyone. Most people who live in South Beach live in stylish, high-rise condo units and low-rise villas and townhomes. They are all found within a 15-minute walk of the world-famous sandy white beach. Development in the area began in 1920 when the main streets like Ocean Drive were laid out. As the population boomed, millionaires like J.C. Penney and Harvey Firestone began to set up residence in the area. Today, Miami Beach real estate is prized by developers because zoning allows for high rises, and city officials embrace a plan to implement modern communities featuring high-end residential buildings with stunning views.
South Beach is a lively hub of expressive and distinct culture. There is something for everyone. So, pack your bags and call our real estate agent!
