The Most Luxurious Condo Buildings in Mid-Beach (Miami Beach)

Mid-Beach might be known as the quieter counterpart to South Beach, which affords it a more laid-back, residential lifestyle. The upscale neighborhood comes with its own unique flavor of arts, performances, entertainment, and architecture. Especially after the introduction of the Faena District, there has been a flurry of activity in this desirable Miami Beach neighborhood that’s anchored by Art Deco and MiMo-style hotels and buildings lining our sugar-sand beaches. This flurry has further attracted an influx of starchitects and big-budget developers to build more modern, luxurious structures to please its ever-growing community of global citizens.

So, what constitutes 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:

Why Choose Mid-Beach?

Mid-Beach offers all the perks of living in Miami Beach, with the added advantage of being tucked away from the much busier South Beach. With more tranquil, white sand beaches, breathtaking water views, throwback Art Deco and MiMo-style architecture, some of the best hotels and resorts, the Bass Art Museum, plus 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 recent study. In addition to the above, Mid-Beach also boasts of close proximity to the 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 is one of the most sought-after neighborhoods to live in.

How Safe is Mid-Beach?

Being the quieter cousin of South Beach definitely has its perks. The more sophisticated Mid-Beach is known for its cleaner and less populated sugar-sand beaches, walkable expanses, and family-friendly corridors. This distance from the more touristy part of town naturally makes Mid-Beach a safer place to call home.

Best Restaurants in Mid-Beach

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:

  • Hakkasan is one of the best Asian restaurants in Miami serving a scrumptious crispy duck salad and Cantonese fare in the Fontainebleau Hotel
  • Scarpetta at the Fontainebleau serves some of the best Italian favorites in a high-end setting with a side of ocean views 
  • Stripsteak by Michael Mina at the Fontainebleau is an outpost for the chef’s award-winning Las Vegas restaurant serving a la carte steak cuts and signature specials
  • Pizza and Burger at the Fontainebleau serves Chef Michael Mina’s best home-style comfort food
  • Pao by Paul Qui at the Faena Hotel is a fine-dining restaurant serving lip-smacking Asian cuisine with water views
  • OLA does great Latin American-style seafood, with its lobster empanada, fire and ice ceviche, and deconstructed key lime pie topping the charts
  • The Broken Shaker is an award-winning hotel bar, dishing out original concoctions infused with international flavors in a bohemian courtyard setting
  • 27 Restaurant and Bar is another great cocktail bar serving top-notch, new-age American fare
  • Lola Restaurant and Grill puts the best skirt steak on the table with live music
  • Los Fuegos by Francis Mallmann also serves a great steak with great wine pairing in an elegant hotel setting
  • Matador Room serves the most inspiring Caribbean and Latin eats cooked up by the world-renowned MasterChef Jean-Georges Vongerichten
  • Casa Faena Restaurant is popular for its delectable Argentine and classic American soul food
  • Hoshi and Sushi is the best place for sushi rolls and Asian fusion in the neighborhood
  • Latin Café is another great place for mouthwatering Cuban sandwiches and skirt steak

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 on isle Nautilus and another further down 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 74, making it one of the more walkable districts in Miami Beach. Last, but not least, it also connects easily to the mainland via the I-95.

Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Real Estate News Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Last updated June 11, 2021. Whether you refer to it as the Sabbath, Shabbat, Shabbos, or by any other term, your religious commitment to observing a holy day of rest should not prevent you from enjoying a luxury condo lifestyle in the subtropical paradise that is Miami.  For this reason, a number of condo communities provide the convenience of a Shabbat or Sabbath elevator, which is a specially programmed elevator that stops automatically on every floor during the Jewish Sabbath, from sundown on Friday evening until sundown on Saturday of every week.  This service is provided in order to accommodate the Jewish religious law that prohibits religious observers from pushing buttons or operating machinery during the Sabbath. While Miami today is known as a particularly Jewish-friendly metropolis, Jews were not even allowed to enter Miami Beach Hotels until the late 1940s. But by the 1950s they began to lay down roots in Miami Beach and to impact the economy, politics, and social flavor...

Brickell Avenue Bridge Schedule, Traffic and Solutions -- All You Need To Know
Transportation Brickell Avenue Bridge Schedule, Traffic and Solutions -- All You Need To Know
Ever tried driving from Brickell to Downtown Miami for lunch? Most Miamians dread the thought of catching the dreaded Brickell Avenue bridge, a drawbridge that opens every hour or half-hour during non-curfew hours to allow river and traffic and boats to pass under.  * This article was updated on June 7, 2021 So what’s the problem? A big one! When the bridge opens, it ends up turning the city into a parking lot. With the last two building booms, there’s been a sudden surge in Downtown population since 2010 that has not stopped, and hence, denser traffic. And with Brickell now one of Miami’s hottest neighborhoods, serving as Miami’s vital financial hub, dense residential condo neighborhood and go-to place for nightlife, travel to and from Brickell and Downtown Miami is unavoidable.  This is why almost every second year, the FDOT faces requests to place restrictions on opening the bridge for maritime traffic during rush hour or extending curfew hours. However, listen to the marine...
