THE NEIGH­BORS

RSWLiving - - Fashion -

Sand­wiched in be­tween the old and the new, the Mi­ami De­sign Dis­trict is sur­rounded by neigh­bor­hoods that com­ple­ment it. To the south is Midtown Mi­ami, a new ur­ban­ism de­vel­op­ment that sprouted up in 2005. Res­i­dents flow out of condo tow­ers to walk­a­ble streets where they can shop for ne­ces­si­ties at stores such as Tar­get or dine at new restau­rants such as Bistro Cas­sis, where side­walk ta­bles, es­car­got and a glass of wine re-cre­ate the French ex­pe­ri­ence.

To the north, his­toric Buena Vista is one of Mi­ami’s old­est neigh­bor­hoods, where homes dat­ing back to the 1920s in­clude Mediter­ranean Re­vival, Mis­sion and Art Deco styles. Ef­forts to pre­serve these houses and zon­ing that doesn’t al­low for condo tow­ers work in fa­vor of keep­ing the neigh­bor­hood’s charm. —P.L.
