Miami is in the midst of an urban renaissance. Downtown Miami is driving growth with new developments of all types; developers added condos, apartments, hotels, offices, and retail centers this year with more to come. Our skyline keeps changing, providing a newly imagined backdrop for this emerging global city and we at the Miami Downtown Development Authority are here to help you get the most out of your Downtown experience, whether you are here for a few nights or a lifetime.

Downtown Miami connects businesses to the world like few cities can. A thriving economy, strong business sectors, instant connectivity, extensive social and cultural offerings, and an active and vibrant residential community come together to form our global cosmopolitan city.
