  • Bal Harbour

    Browse Communities in Bal Harbour FL  Bal Harbour, Florida, is a chic little village in Miami-Dade County. With a population of 3,305 as of the 2000 census, Bal Harbour is a cozy place to call home. Its total area is 0.6 square miles, and 0.3 of those are water. Bal Harbour was scheduled to begin development in the 1930s and 1940s, but building plans were delayed by the onset of World War II. Bal Harbour has an interesting history – the landowner rented his large tracts of land to the government for $1 per year. The government used it as training grounds and as a camp for prisoners of war. Today, Bal Harbour’s boutique shops are located where the prison camp once was. The city required some design and planning, as swampland had to be filled so it could hold houses. Walls were built to protect against the ocean, and planners built a yacht basin. The name itself has an unusual origin – “Bay Harbour” was the initial choice, but it was pointed out that the village was actually on the ocean. “B” from “bay” was added to “al” from Atlantic, and the name “bal” was born. If you like to shop, you might want to move to, or at least visit, Bal Harbour. In terms of revenue per square foot, the Bal Harbour shops location is one of the most productive in the entirety of the world. Retailers include Tiffany’s, Gucci, Saks Fifth Avenue, Chanel, and more. If you want to live here, though, be aware that there’s an application process of sorts. Homeowners associations rigorously examine prospective residents before they are allowed to move in. Bal Harbour is home to the Unscripted project, a set of commissions designed to bring out and showcase the artistic talents of South Florida residents. Life here is life to the fullest.

  • Cutler Bay

    Browse Community Rentals, Sales and Foreclosures in Cutler Bay Florida Cutler Bay, formerly known as Cutler Ridge, is an incorporated town in Miami-Dade County that stretches form SW 184th Street (Eureka Dr) east of US-1 to the coast, and north of Black Point Marina.  As of the 2010 census, Cutler Bay had a total population of 40,286.  Its incorporation came in 2005 when residents voted to do so and after adopting a municipal charter the city was renamed Cutler Bay. It is a medium sized coastal town with eight constituent neighborhoods making it the 73rd largest community in Florida. In August 1992, Culter Bay and the surrounding areas were devastated by Hurricane Andrew.  Most of the homes and businesses in the area were completely destroyed because of their wood frame construction. Since Hurricane Andrew new laws were put in place to ensure that history would not repeat itself.  Homes and business are now built with concrete block construction and while Cutler Bay was one of the worst affected it has since rebuilt itself little by little. Because of its proximity to the water both residents and visitors alike are able to enjoy all that Florida beaches, inlets, and bays have to offer. In addition to the waterfront activities, Cutler Bay is close to some of South Florida’s finest attractions such as Biscayne National Park, Coral Castle, Everglades National Park, Deering Estate, The Miami Metrozoo, The Miami Seaquarium, Monkey Jungle and Jungle Island.

  • North Bay Village

    Browse Communities in North Bay Village FL When you come into North Bay Village, the first thing you see is a lovely stone and metal sign surrounded by native plants. The somewhat misleadingly-named city – it is, actually, the City of North Bay Village, if you want to be technical – is small. Its total area is less than one square mile, but its population as of 2010 was 7,137. The city was actually underwater, beneath the Biscayne Bay, until 1940. The island was filled in and streets installed. Today, this island has some extraordinary restaurants. Many residences are single-family homes. However, a new building trend has moved towards the installation of luxury condominium buildings. This city isn’t huge yet. The population is still growing, but the city isn’t yet built-out, and you can still find a home or condominium. North Bay Village has its own farmers’ market, parades, and more. If you want to live somewhere that’s quaint and has the authentic Florida-island feel, North Bay Village might just fit. North Bay Village has come a long way since it began. In 1941, there were only 12 homes. Today, there are 376 single-family homes, as well as an array of apartments, condominiums, businesses, restaurants, and more. With North Bay Village’s thriving economy, business creation or expansion makes a lot of economic sense. There’s a proximity to Miami that makes it convenient for marketing and shipping. The proximity to the city is especially important if you want a personal life full of art and culture. While North Bay Village has some nightlife options – its clubs once drew Frank Sinatra to the island – you can find even more to do in Miami. You can have the perfect balance of smaller-city life with bigger-city resources. Whether you want to start a business venture, start a family, or both, you’ll find all kinds of opportunities to bring your life to the next level.

  • North Miami

    Browse Communities in North Miami FL North Miami is nicknamed “City of Progress,” and it’s not without reason. Appropriately, North Miami is roughly ten miles north of Miami. The area is ten square miles, and the population, at least as of 2007, was 56,185. North Miami’s progress began with Native American residents and the advent of the railroad. North Miami is the site of the first “road” in Dade County – a military trail hacked through thickets and woodlands. The trail connected Fort Lauderdale and Fort Dallas. This “road” contained a natural bridge made of limestone. The bridge crossed a creek at one time, but the creek doesn’t exist anymore. Instead, the area is commemorated by Arch Creek Memorial Park. The early settlement in the area was called Arch Creek. The “road” was made in 1856, and the first citizens of Arch Creek arrived in 1891. An Arch Creek Railroad Depot was formed, and a community sprang up around it. In the early 1900s, a church, almost 20 homes, a blacksmith’s shop, a general store, and packing houses for tomatoes have been established. Military veterans and their families moved in after World War II. Today, North Miami is a fascinating hub of culture and energy. It is home to the Museum of Contemporary Art, which was built by renowned architect Charles Gwathmey. Two state parks can be found in North Miami. Though it is urbanized, North Miami has the largest urban park of all Florida state parks. This park is called Oleta River State Park. Also, Arch Creek Park, formed around the historic limestone arch, is part of the city.
