Midtown has been booming in both good and bad ways. With development practically happening in every direction, the area is poised for yet another seismic change. Controversially, Miami's most urban Walmart is coming to the heart of the neighborhood, but on the other hand, the Design District to the north will soon have lots and lots of luxury shopping. The Related Group is building Hyde Midtown on the former 3 Midtown site. Oh, and across 29th street from Midtown's southern bounds, the Blue Starlite Urban Mini Drive In, an actual drive-in movie theater just opened. How cool is that?
