The Design District is getting a "bohemian" brother.

The Miami Herald reports that Buena Vista will be the site of a low-rise 60,000-square-foot mixed-use project. If you're wondering what a mixed-use project is, it's exactly what makes the area surrounding the Miami Design District so special. Restaurants, shops, a wellness center, and a boutique hotel will all grace this leafy residential neighborhood.

Upper Buena Vista

Upper Buena Vista

Developer Michal Aviv has submitted a master plan for the Upper Buena Vista project, and her first phase is slated to be completed by next summer. She's going to be remodeling an existing two-story commercial building into a restaurant and rooftop bar. Elevated wining and dining are in your near future.

early 2018, three new three-story buildings with a mix of retail tenants, a bed-and-breakfast, studios for artists and photographers will be available. Oh, and a spa along with seven small residential cottages that will be rented out. So you'll even be able to live in this little slice of heaven.

This space is conveniently located on 184 NE 50th Terr. with a 33-space parking lot plus street parking. It lies just north of Midtown and the Wynwood neighborhoods and a few blocks from the Design District.
