In This City, At This Moment.
Miami has gone through many iterations, and it is presently in the midst of its most cultural one. As a modern renaissance takes shape in the Magic City, sophisticates from around the world are recognizing the high quality of life here, and not only making this their home, but also making it a center of art, culture and commerce. Major museums, institutions of higher learning, corporate headquarters, design firms—they are all planting flags here in this youthful, vibrant city by the sea.
Residents of 57 Ocean can be at any of the city’s new attractions within minutes: La Gorce Country Club, shopping at Bal Harbour Shops or Lincoln Road Mall, dining on the incredible Miami River waterfront, or kayaking through mangrove tunnels at Oleta River State Park—all no more than 20 minutes away.
Known for its Art Deco architecture and beautiful beaches, Miami Beach is the city’s original playground. Top destinations include Bal Harbour Shops, Oleta River State Park, La Gorce Country Club, Ocean Drive, Lincoln Road Mall, and South Pointe Park.
Modern architecture that doubles as eye candy, high-end shopping, world-class art galleries and the new Institute of Contemporary Art make this the thinking person’s entertainment enclave.
This creative hub is home to murals by world-famous street artists, on-the-cusp art galleries and regular hangouts of the city’s creative class.
As the epicenter of culture and entertainment, these areas boast some of the city’s best rooftop bars, beloved restaurants and a postwork social scene.
This barrier island is home to two major parks populated by native flora and fauna—a tropical oasis and the “lungs” of this bustling international city.
Waterfront walkways, leafy residential blocks and lots of opportunities for shopping, working out or a rendezvous for coffee make this the preferred stomping ground of many of Miami’s upscale residents.
The great outdoors beckons residents of Miami Beach, where runners speed along its landscaped paths, cyclists pedal on its bike lanes, kayakers paddle in the bay and jet skiers race across the ocean swells. Ocean Drive, with its world-renowned Art Deco buildings, runs right through Miami Beach, with its upscale shops, chic hotels and vibrant nightlife. Nearby, the new Faena Forum attracts unexpected talent for spectacular performances, while top dining destinations are never too far to visit.
South Pointe Park is situated at the southernmost tip of Miami Beach. It is the perfect place for grabbing lunch along the water’s edge and watching the ships go by. Spend a day cooling off at the miniature water park, playing at the dog park, checking out the sculptural art installations or just frolicking on the beach.
You can be at one of five golf courses within minutes including Miami Beach’s prestigious La Gorce Country Club.
The Frank Gehry-designed New World Center boasts some of Miami’s best performing arts shows. During summer, live concerts and films are presented in Soundscape Park as part of the center’s Wallcast® projection series.
Bal Harbour Shops is Miami’s most iconic and luxurious shopping destination, and it’s only 10 minutes from home.
DESIGN DISTRICT & WYNWOOD
The world’s most iconic luxury brands have set up shop in the art-filled environs of the Design District, perhaps America’s most exciting new shopping destination. And there are many other opportunities for retail therapy across the city. All that may be temporarily eclipsed by Art Basel Miami Beach, which started as a small fair for artists and the patrons who love them in 2002, but has grown into a world-renowned arts festival drawing some 77,000 people every December.
In the heart of the Design District stands the historic Moore Building, which plays host to local artisans as well as cultural events year-round. At its core is a sculptural installation by famed late Architect Zaha Hadid.
Though it is becoming more widely known for its extensive showcase of global street art, Wynwood is also home to bespoke luxury brands, new homegrown retail concepts, innovative culinary ventures, microbreweries and local coffee roasters.
BRICKELL & DOWNTOWN
Downtown Miami is a hot spot for culture, with venues such as the waterfront Pérez Art Museum Miami, the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science, the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts and the skyline-altering AmericanAirlines Arena.
To the south is Brickell, the city’s financial district, where visitors find envelope-pushing art galleries, inventive dining establishments and glamorous rooftop bars—all of which also draw local Miamians to the urban core of their city, where something exciting is always happening.
Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science and Pérez Art Museum Miami are newly designed jewels of the city, celebrating ocean life and Latin American art respectively. Museum Park, a sprawling green space along Biscayne Bay, unites the two with Jaume Plensa’s sculpture of “Looking Into My Dreams, Awilda” positioned as a beacon for cruise ships as they enter and leave the Port of Miami.
Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is a historic landmark just south of Brickell. Its limestone architecture and sprawling European-inspired gardens on the bay demand more than a one-time visit.
Three stories and 500,000 sf of premier retail and restaurants make Brickell City Centre a destination of its own.
