Welcome to Downtown
Downtown Miami, with its dazzling skyscrapers set against the backdrop of a glistening Biscayne Bay, is iconic as the business, cultural, and sports team hub of South Florida. Population has exploded in Downtown Miami in the past decade thanks in large part to the urban revitalization and the building boom of the early 2000’s .It has seen revitalization in its cultural landscape as well with the addition of the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts and the current construction of the Miami Science Museum and Miami Art Museum. Multi-use parks, state-of-the-art sporting facilities, universities, government offices, hotels, Miami Jewelry District, Port Of Miami, street vendors, and shops and businesses housed in 19th century buildings collectively contribute to a feverishly-paced, vibrant downtown scene.
Downtown has over 2,000,000 square feet of office space and is not only the commercial center of South Florida but also the gateway to Latin America. Dozens of consulates and foreign government offices and international chambers of commerce line Biscayne Blvd and Brickell Avenue to the south.
The Dante B. Fascell Port of Miami is one of the stars in Miami’s constellation of organizations pumping tens of millions of dollars into the city and providing hundreds of thousands of jobs to its citizens. The Port of Miami is the “Cruise Capital of the World” and one of the nation’s largest container ports. Cruise lines such as NCL, RCCL, Crystal, Disney Cruise Lines, and Carnival depart from the Port of Miami for exotic ports of call.
Downtown Miami is in close proximity to Parrot Jungle Island, the Miami Children’s Museum, the Miami International Airport and Broward and Palm Beach counties via I-95.
Downtown is served by Metromover, Metrobus, the Biscayne/ Brickell Trolley, and the Miami Metrorail. Tri-Rail links it to Broward and Palm Beach Counties.
