The Most Luxurious Condo Buildings in Mid-Beach, Miami Beach

Miami Beach is Miami Beach - a legendary place to live and visit. But it also has its own neighborhoods, each with its own vibe and characteristics. Mid-Beach is known as the quieter counterpart to South Beach, given its more laid-back, residential lifestyle on the beach with much less tourist action, but with an understated and sophisticated feel given its history as “Millionaire’s Row” in the 1950s and 60s. 

The upscale neighborhood comes with its own unique flavor of arts, performances, entertainment, and architecture. And now with the Faena District established, this desirable Miami Beach neighborhood anchored by Art Deco & MiMo-style hotels and buildings lining its sugar-sand beaches is a mini art mecca. This flurry of activity has further attracted an influx of starchitects and big-budget developers to build more modern, luxurious structures in Mid-Beach - aiming to please its ever-growing community of global citizens.

So, what makes for luxury living in Mid-Beach? Here’s looking at the top 5 most luxurious condo buildings of the Miami Beach neighborhood and all they have to offer.

And with the eclectic Faena District for all your art, culture, and curated luxury retail cravings, this upscale neighborhood is a remarkable place to call home. 

Mid-Beach also ranks well in terms of walkability with a walk score of 91 in our 2019 study. In addition to the above, Mid-Beach boasts of close proximity to the exclusive La Gorce Country Club and golf course, all the famous shopping and entertainment hotspots of South Beach, Mt. Sinai Hospital, the upscale Shops at Bal Harbour, and easy access to the mainland via I-95, making it one of the most sought-after neighborhoods to live in.

This distance from the more touristy part of town naturally makes Mid-Beach a safer place to call home.

The dining scene in Mid-Beach might not be as wide-ranging as South Beach, but it certainly has its fair share of top-rated eateries that give residents plenty of reasons to dine-out closer home:

Shopping in Mid-Beach

Shopping options in Mid-Beach were quite modest until a few years ago, with only the Fontainebleau Shops ruling the roost. However, with the addition of the Faena Bazaar, residents now have more options in the stores that range from emerging designers to global luxury and lifestyle brands, a highly-curated collection of artisan luxury goods, rotating pop-ups, and an art gallery that got Vogue christening the Bazaar ‘Miami Beach’s new design destination.’

For a broader range of shopping options, residents can head to the iconic Lincoln Road mall in South Beach or drive up to the highly glamorous Bal Harbour Shops up north, also with great dining and cafe options. Still, they will find their favorite Starbucks closer to home in three locations - one at the 6080 condo-hotel, a second more south in the AC Hotel by Marriott, and another further north on Collins Avenue.

The Best Located Condo in Mid-Beach

Faena House

Faena House not only wins the tag of most luxurious, but also the best-located condo in our Mid-Beach study. To begin with, it is beachfront and a quick ride from South Beach plus its famous nightlife, art fairs, and shopping at Lincoln Road. Second, it sits right in the middle of the happening Faena District - surrounded by the Faena Hotel, Performing Arts Theater, Events Forum, and Bazaar that have come to infuse new life to Millionaire’s Row. Third, the Faena District also features a walkscore of 79, making it one of the more walkable districts in Miami Beach, and is just getting better. Last, but not least, it also connects easily to the mainland via the I-95.

Opinions and Advice New Emotional Support Animal (ESA) Law Florida: Complete Condo Guide
Finding and moving to a new home can be a strenuous experience, even when you like the change you’re making. This is more so when you have an emotional condition or disability and part of your treatment involves having an Emotional Support Animal (ESA). In this case, finding a new home comes with a whole new set of challenges only you and your furry friend can know. And no one needs the added fear and stress of possibly being denied housing or being discriminated against for owning an ESA. Thankfully, a new Florida law on emotional support animals that went into effect July 1, 2020, explicitly states what you and your current/prospective landlord or HOA can and cannot do regarding Emotional Service Animals. The law applies to all condos, apartments, and rental homes. Last updated on March 27, 2024.
