The Most Luxurious Condo Buildings in Edgewater and Midtown

The Most Luxurious Condo Buildings in Edgewater and Midtown

Jul 24, 2019 July 24, 2019

The previously low-key Edgewater and Midtown neighborhoods have emerged as one of the most desired locations for luxurious living in Miami. So, we decided to rank the top 5 most expensive condo buildings in the neighborhood to give you an idea of the price point and luxuries you can expect if you’re looking at a tranquil, yet high-end place of residence in Miami.

Also, since Midtown does not have many condo buildings of its own, those looking for higher luxury have to look at an Edgewater address, even if they originally wished to stay in Midtown.

Why Choose Edgewater-Midtown?

Sitting on the edge of the Bay, this family-friendly neighborhood has a great walkscore of 80 (from the Paraiso District) and higher than average public transit score of 54. The neighborhood is also home to the dog-friendly Margaret Pace Park plus a number of fabulous eateries. What further makes Edgewater a sought-after residential neighborhood is its close proximity to the top shopping venues of Midtown, world-class art and coffee shops of Wynwood, and stellar design and shopping stores of the Design District.

How Safe is Edgewater?

Edgewater is one of the safer neighborhoods in Miami and registers a lower crime rate than most districts.

It has also been ranked as the 4th Best Neighborhood in Miami for living on streetadvisor.com.

Best Restaurants in Edgewater-Midtown

Mignonette
Mignonette - Edgewater, Miami


Edgewater may be known as a residential neighborhood, but it does not disappoint when it comes to quality places to eat:

Next door at Midtown, you can find the best places to unwind like Lagniappe, the Sugarcane Raw Bar and Grill and Tap 42.

Shopping in Edgewater

Shops at Midtown
Shops at Midtown - Miami


Edgewater has mostly neighborhood-y daily life types of shopping options, as opposed to fancy retail options, except for a few boutiques here and there. You can find a nice Publix at 18th and  Biscayne along with a few pharmacies in the neighborhood. You will also find Starbucks down at the Publix, and another on NE 30th Street. 

However, when it comes to serious shopping, you will need to head out of Edgewater. The Shops at Midtown Miami house all the basics like Target, Marshalls and Ross. The Design District next door is home to higher-end goodies. Wynwood is where you will find all the edgy stuff. And, the Brickell CityCenter, which is a few minutes drive, has a wider selection of feel-good and luxury retail.

The Best Located Condo in Edgewater

Naming just one well-located building is a tough one for this well-connected neighborhood. However, considering direct access to nature, ample parking space, and an easy walk to the grocery store, we’re biased to pick Aria on the Bay. This waterfront condo building stands across the lush Margaret Pace Park, is a block away from Publix, and is only a block-and-a-half from the Metromover station as well as the Venetian Causeway (to head to the beach).

Some honorable mentions include Biscayne Beach, the Paraiso District’s Gran Paraiso, One Paraiso, Paraiso Bayviews and Paraiso Bay, since they are waterfront and an easier walk to Midtown plus the Design District.
