South of Fifth
The South of Fifth neighborhood in Miami’s South Beach is a small community that lies between Fifth Street and South Pointe Park. High rise apartment buildings in this dynamic neighborhood offer spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay to residents who can afford their multi-million dollar price tag.
One of the most recognizable features of this bustling community is its art deco architecture right along the Atlantic coast. The neighborhood maintains its small, residential milieu by avoiding the trappings of streets lined with retail stores. Perhaps this is what contributes to the ultra-luxurious exclusivity of the locale. At the south end of this stunning neighborhood lies South Pointe Park. This beautiful public park underwent a $22.5 million renovation, completed in 2009, and features 20-foot-wide walkways that are lined with limestone mined in Florida.
In the earliest days of this area, the streets were not walked by the elite celebrities and executives who enjoy its luxurious amenities today. It was actually a less inviting neighborhood, inhabited mostly by criminals and the outcasts of society. Wise and daring investors had the faith in this prime spot of land to take a risk on developing the area. They had the foresight to take the unsavory neighborhood that it once was and make it into what it is today.
A restriction placed on high rise construction has limited the number of residences available in this desirable neighborhood. Condos here are some of the most coveted luxury homes in the world.
