Miami: a luxury city to live in the US
I can’t say whether Miami is more cosmopolitan or luxurious. Perhaps both, since the former is a consequence of the latter. Everything is luxurious in Miami starting with the Miami climate. In the Sunshine State, as the state of Florida is known, the city of Miami is perpetually sun-kissed and enjoys a subtropical climate with mild winters and warm, sunny summers, offering one of the most uniform and consistent climates all year round.
But the splendor of Miami can also, and especially, be seen at night when the sun sets and the city neighborhood glows in in the light of the glittering Miami luxury condos that rise imposingly from the ground as far as the eye can see every direction, from Brickell to Key Biscayne, from Downtown to Coconut Grove. Flashy, gaudy, bright, Miami luxury condos stand out and express to the fullest the refined and sophisticated style that pervades the city. Internationally renowned archistars – such as Zaha Hadid, Bernardo Fort Brescia, and Rem Koolhaas, to name just a few – have had a strong influence on the Magic City, inspiring new forms, lines, and architectural languages that echo throughout Miami and in its unmistakable skyline.
Yet it is not just Miami’s luxury condos, luxury residences, Caribbean beaches, and the stunning beauty of its skyline that make Miami the most luxurious city in all of Florida. The infrastructure, the new museums and art galleries, the bold artistic and cultural growth, and the luxury shopping experiences have helped make Miami one of the world’s most sought-after luxury destinations of today and the future.
Luxury shopping in Miami
Whether it’s at the Miami Design District, Bal Harbour Shops, Brickell City Centre, or Bloomingdale’s Aventura, luxury shopping is the word in Miami. For fashion, with the likes of Dior, Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, Versace, and Valentino, but for design and furniture. Unique, sought-after, authentic, and ever-changing styles converge in one place: the shopping districts of Miami.
Miami: museums and art galleries
Pérez Art Museum Miami, Museum of Art and Design, Miami Design District. These are just the names of some of the most important landmarks of artistic and creative culture in Miami and, more broadly, the world. These are places dedicated to artistic experimentation, intellectual exchange of local and international artists, and the celebration of creativity, beauty, and artistic boldness. Places like these have enriched Miami, enhancing its artistic merit and confirming, once again, that it is one of the world’s most inspiring luxury destinations.
The city of Miami has invested huge resources in its infrastructure network over the past decade, becoming one of the most important centers in Florida. The redevelopment and modernization of the city infrastructure – starting with transportation – has allowed it to better fulfill its role as the top tourist destination in the United States and to respond to the demand of its residents to enjoy a lifestyle that is impeccable in every respect. Two projects are mainly driving Miami’s infrastructure future toward unparalleled advancement: The Port of Miami Tunnel and the Brightline Trains line.
The Port of Miami Tunnel
This project connects the SR A1A /MacArthur Causeway to Dodge Island and provides direct access between the seaport and the I-395 and I-95 highways and creates another entrance to Port Miami in addition to the Port Bridge. The Port of Miami Tunnel has greatly improved traffic in and around downtown Miami by reducing the number of trucks and vehicles on central streets.
The Brightline Trains line
The Brightline Trains line, on the other hand, is a high-speed rail service that currently connects Miami and West Palm Beach and will soon see an extension from West Palm Beach to Orlando International Airport. There are still many routes and destinations planned and proposed by the Brightline Trains project, for an increasingly “Miami-centric” Florida.
These are the characteristics that have made Miami the city everyone talks about and falls unconditionally in love with, the best luxury destination in Florida and the United States. Capable of welcoming everyone with open arms, Miami embodies the most sublime of human dreams. It is the Magic City that conquers at first sight and has undoubtedly attracted many foreigners to becoming one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world, where people, cultures, and traditions meet in one and only one aspiration – prosperity.
So, if everything that permeates Miami flows into luxury, all that is left to do is to choose in which glitzy neighborhood to embark on the journey to the lifestyle you have always dreamed of.
