This small neighborhood has recently come alive with a flurry of new construction activity, as old 1950s buildings, past their prime, are bought and cleared for new, boutique, waterfront condos. Clean, quiet, and pristine, this almost forgotten piece of Miami real estate had stood unnoticed for way too long, considering the building boom of the early 2000s skipped over this part of town. With new zoning rules in place and a prime waterfront location, Bay Harbor Islands’ pre-construction projects rival even those from South Beach, offering extra-large floor plans, the quiet luxury of boutique living, and private marinas with ocean access, often at better price points than Miami Beach.
