Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various Miami neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's bayfront estate? Let's find out! Today's price and locale: $2,000/month in downtown Miami.
Today we feature four options in downtown Miami, with some asking over our $2,000 ceiling but maybe you can knock those down through keen negotiating. It's insane how much the rental market has exploded over the past few years, with median rents in November reaching nearly $1,900 a month.
335 S Biscayne Blvd Apt #4080
It's crazy to think just five years ago, two-bedroom bay-view units in One Miami were renting in the neighborhood of $1,600 a month. Today's it's nearly double. This one-bedroom unit on the 40th floor with bay views is asking $2,200. It's an ideal location, just south of Bayfront Park and a little walk to Brickell and AmericanAirlines Arena. The new downtown Whole Foods is also two blocks away.
300 S Biscayne Blvd Apt #2301
Across the street from our last unit is this one-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bathroom corner apartment in Met One on the 23rd floor.
50 Biscayne Blvd Apt #4505 Asking: $1,950/month
As we continue our quest up Biscayne we come across this 45th floor unit at 50 Biscayne. It has one bedroom, one bathroom, and is asking $1,950 a month. The condo's large pool and gym are also selling points.
888 Biscayne Blvd Apt #2507
Our last stop is at Marina Blue, where this one-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bathroom unit on the 25th floor is asking $2,199. Bonus points for being across from the AAA, where you can print out awesome cheap tickets on Stubhub the moment before a Heat game.
