History of  EdgeWater Miami

Edgewater is a long, narrow neighborhood in Miami that juts out into Biscayne Bay. Because it is one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods, the growth of Wynwood has paralleled that of the rest of the city. On one side of Biscayne Bay and on the other side of the Florida East Coast Railway, Edgewater’s early 20th-century subdivisions contained a mix of fine single-family homes and smaller apartment buildings. Having only a few streets in each subdivision, the grid street plan has a lot of irregularity, with streets starting here and ending there.

As a result of the 1926 hurricane, the Shoreland Company went bankrupt and was replaced by the Biscayne Boulevard Company, which was created out of what was left over from the Shoreland Company. Until the present day, the expansive four-lane boulevard has been Edgewater’s most recognizable feature, second only to the bay itself.

Edgewater is mostly a residential area with a lot of old homes from the early 20th century. Biscayne Bay is to the east, and there are many high-rise buildings there. There are also a lot of old homes in the neighborhood. For many people, the area has become more popular since 2000 because it is close to downtown and other popular neighborhoods, like the Design District. Recent changes in the neighborhood have led to a lot of high-rise and mid-rise residential homes being built, as well as more shops and restaurants.
