The previously low-key
Edgewater neighborhood has emerged as one of the most desired locations for luxurious living in Miami. In fact, some of the most luxurious new condo developments in Miami are under construction in this waterfront neighborhood surrounded by a park, which is why Edgewater is a favorite for those wanting to be close to everything. So, we are ranking the top 5 most expensive condo buildings in this family-friendly 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 and bayfront 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?

Edgewater is one of the hottest Miami neighborhoods right now and for several reasons. First, it’s close to everything -- the beaches, the arts district and museums, public transportation stations, downtown and Brickell, airports, Design District. Indeed, living in Edgewater gives you access to the top shopping venues of Midtown, world-class art and coffee shops of Wynwood, and stellar design plus shopping stores of the Design District, plus you’re ten minutes from Brickell’s financial center, incredible shops at Brickell City Centre, and you’re also 10 minutes across the Venetian Causeway to South Beach.

Second, Edgewater is a waterfront neighborhood. Sitting on the edge of Biscayne Bay, this family-friendly neighborhood (check top family friendly condos here) offers incredible views for miles, including of Biscayne Bay and further to the ocean if you’re on a high floor. Edgewater is a complete waterfront community, and has a great walkscore of 92 (from the Aria on the Bay), and higher than average public transit score of 54. The neighborhood is also home to the 8-acre, waterfront and dog-friendly Margaret Pace Park, which is popular among fitness lovers for its Bayfront jogging paths, tennis, volleyball and basketball courts. The tiny neighborhood boasts of a larger-than-life collection of eateries too. 

Third, recent interest in the neighborhood has brought top design names from around the world to build incredible condo buildings at some of the best price points in all of Miami. In fact, Edgewater was just named the 4th best South Florida neighborhood to live in for 2020 out of Miami Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. And from an investor and market standpoint, Edgewater is performing better than all Greater Downtown Miami neighborhoods.

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, West Elm, Marshalls, HomeGoods, GUESS and Ross, along with a Starbucks and lots of eateries. The Design District next door is home to ultra luxury brands, both in the name of fashion and interiors. Wynwood is where you will find all the edgy stuff. And, the Brickell City Centre, which is a few minutes drive, has a wider selection of feel-good and European luxury retail.

 

The Best Located Condo in Edgewater


Naming just one well-located building is  tough 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.
