(7) Coral Gables

There’s been a lot of action emanating from the Gables in the real estate world in 2016, including the opening of a new movie theater, plans for an indoor football facility at the University of Miami, and plenty of listings with celebrity ties (Bob Griese, Cher, Prince Royce, and Bacardi).

(10) Edgewater

Edgewater continues to be one of Miami’s most active neighborhoods. New developments are being announced in bunches while others top off.

However, rents remain more affordable here than in other populated Miami neighborhoods. Will it stay that way?
