Updating The Curbed Miami Rental Heatmap

View as Map

Here ye, here ye, on this first day of Curbed Miami's first annual Renters Week, we're updating the Rental Heatmap. First off: new mapping software, to give it a snazzy new look. Yay! Second off: Some new rental options, some hot, and yes, ok, some not. But all very notable. Some of the buildings are all rental, some just happen to have lots of units put on the rental market by their owners, and some are in a weird gray area in between created by that calamitous real estate meltdown we're just now finding our way out of. Anyways, onward to the Updated Curbed Miami Rental Heatmap:

Met Miami

Copy Link

Met is one of those condo towers that went rental in the real estate apocalypse and hasn't yet recommitted itself to total condo-dome. One of the biggest projects of the 90s boom, two of Met Miami's 3 towers have been built, one with a J.W. Marriott in it, and the third is finally, finally breaking ground. The catch: It was supposed to be a tower with a Whole Foods Supermarket at the base. Now they're just building the Whole Foods without the tower.

Vizcayne

Copy Link

Despite its quirky name (Vizcaya+Biscayne?) the art deco-esque towers of Vizcayne remind us of New York in the 30s. Vizcayne is a set of two towers atop an amenity deck that spans the entire block. It's a condo, but lots of individual units regularly hit the market.

Icon Brickell

Copy Link

Icon Brickell is the Grand Queen of the big real estate boom, designed by Arquitectonica and Philippe Starck, and built by the boom's biggest king, Jorge Perez. It also bankrupted him. Three towers contain lots and lots of rentals and condos, and the ultra-plush Viceroy Hotel.

Paramount Bay

Copy Link

That big plaza out front was where the house from the movie There's Something About Mary used to be. A construction crane fell on it from you-know-where.

Opera Tower

Copy Link

Theoretically, you walk home to Opera Tower after seeing Figaro at the Arsht Center down the street. Actually, you walk to that new Publix less than 500 feet away for groceries and pick up your dog's poop at the bay front Margaret Pace Park across the street. Still a pretty good life.

4 Midtown

Copy Link

Towering condos, mid-rise lofts, and low-rise live-work setups give you lots of living options in the heart of Miami's very popular insta-city known as Midtown.

One Miami

Copy Link

Live right at the mouth of the Miami River "where it all began" with the Tequesta Indians thousands of years ago. The public riverwalk has art and spectacular views.

Axis Brickell

Copy Link

It's big, it's shinny, it's metromover adjacent, and your apartment's a steal compared to what it was originally selling for, back when it was all condo.

Midblock

Copy Link

Are they "sky townhouses," "lofts," "live-work spaces," or just two-story apartments? Well, probably all of the above. This is yet another building in Miami's insta-city of Midtown.

Flamingo South Beach

Copy Link

With three massive towers, a bunch of townhouses, expansive grounds, a beauty salon, a pet salon, a spa, a sandy-beach pool, an infinity pool, a David Barton Gym, and a private car sharing service (like Car2Go, but just for the building) the notorious Flamingo is a giant compound of rental insanity smack dab in the center of South Beach. Probably contributing to that notoriety: the onsite liquor store.

Ten Museum Park

Copy Link

Although built as a condo building, Ten Museum Park - perhaps the most architecturally restrained new tower in the "Biscayne Boulevard Wall" of buildings - has an astonishing 261 units on the rental market at the moment, according to Zillow, which is odd because, as far as we know, there are only 200 in the building. A planned Clinique La Prairie spa for residents' use also never happened. But it's still a gorgeous building, in a fantastic location, with views that would make you drool. And hey, no fancy spa = lower rents.
