Trends and Cycles Shape the Community

Miami is a new and vibrant city built for change and innovation but deeply rooted in its history. Great changes have occurred in a relatively short period of time because Miami is an ever-evolving community. Founded in 1896 by Julia Tuttle, the only woman to found a major America City, Miami continues to defy the odds with impressive growth and emergence as a global city.

Building booms, large scale immigration, ethnic transition, art deco architecture, and natural disasters have transformed the former retirement community known only for its sun and fun atmosphere into a bustling diverse metropolitan city of 2.7 million residents speaking 100+ languages enjoying an arts and culture renaissance with a youthful talented population median age 39 and booming downtown urban area attracting highly educated professionals (60% in our urban core).
