Located in the Upper East Side neighborhood (known to locals as the MiMo District), Morningside is a single-family home community positioned just north of Downtown Miami and situated east of Biscayne Boulevard, spanning from north east 50th terrace to north east 62nd street. Coined as Miami’s first historic district incorporated in 1984 and registered in the National Register of Historic Places in 1992, Morningside is one of the few neighborhoods in Miami-Dade County whose architecture is still preserved. A time capsule dawning back to the who’s who of interior designer savants (featuring works from more than 40 renown architects across the country), the properties inside this plush enclave reflect a Mediterranean Revival aesthetic that speaks to the romantic character of Miami’s beginnings. From the architecture firm, Kiehnel and Elliot, who first introduced Mediterranean Revival homes to South Florida to Marion Manley (South Florida’s first female architect) who designed a property on north east 56th street, Morningside is a whimsical wonderland of design representing the best of the best in Miami architecture.

One of three residential communities included in the Upper East Side area, in addition to Bay Pointe and Belle Meade, Morningside is a beautiful neighborhood to invest in the real estate market, with rolling Oak Trees and vernacular style Old Florida homes. Originally founded in the 1920s as “Bay Shore,” this then architecturally ambitious area became an oasis of private residential estates redolent with Mediterranean and Art Deco elements which followed the growth of Miami’s 1930s and 1940s design trends. Morningside also features several Masonry Vernacular high-style buildings and Tudor Revival estates which add to the city’s diverse exoskeleton. Today, a boom-era suburb due to the commercial development of the Upper East Side, Morningside has righteously taken back its title of a sought-after real estate hotspot that’s surrounded by a family-oriented neighborhood.

A Peaceful Backdrop

Idyllic for raising children of all ages, Morningside is in proximity to top-ranked public and private schools and is enveloped by quiet and quaint streets that are secure. Wide tree-lined boulevards make for a peaceful backdrop and are perfect for riding bikes after school and taking a long jog on weekend mornings. Encompassing over 100 acres and comprising of over 218 single family homes (13 of which are larger estates and sit along Biscayne Bay), Morningside is filled with young families and a profusion of lush parks. Nearby verdant grounds that are picturesque for picnics and play dates include the 42-acre Morningside Park, Legion Park (home to a weekly farmer’s market and daily yoga class), Manatee Bend Park and Baywood Park.

Vibrant Entertainment

Adjacent to historic hotels, galleries, shops and restaurants on Biscayne Boulevard, residents looking for a combination of dynamic dining and vibrant entertainment can find 360 degrees of arts and culture in walking distance from their front door.
