Dec 23, 2019 December 23, 2019

Miami’s Upper East Side is known for its fine balance between the old and the new, with the now-historic Florida Midcentury Modern (MiMo) architecture rubbing shoulders with older high-rises and younger mid-rises. While what’s classic is gold, these newer condo buildings bring along something rare -- affordable luxury on the waterfront with a neighborhood feel. Read on to discover the top-end condo buildings of the Upper East Side and how much it costs to own a residence in here.

Why Choose Upper East Side?

Sitting along Biscayne Bay, the Upper East Side provides the best of urban living with a suburban pace of life. The neighborhood is popular for its wellness lifestyle and family-friendly tree-lined streets, historic MiMo-style architecture, hip special events at the Ironside, a farmer’s market at Legion Park and sports activities at the waterfront Morningside park. Best part, it’s just a 15-minute drive from the Arts & Entertainment District plus Downtown, both of which are home to entertainment hotspots such as AmericanAirlines Arena, Adrienne Arsht Center for Performing Arts, Museum Park, and more.
