“A gem in the making”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

Design District is booming and many designer stores are opening up. In another year or two, this place will be a major attraction.

It's a great place for anything having to do with interior design and decor. The array of stores that sell high end furniture, carpets, appliances, lamps and light fixtures, artwork and home decoration items is unbelievable.

There a few place to sit down and eat but it appears that many are in the works,

Many of the currents stores are in retrofitted industrial buildings and are in deal for displaying the top quality merchandize they carry.

Parking is an issue and will only get worse as the district gains in popularity. A wonderful feature is the string of valet parking options (seemed to be run by the same company) where you can get parked for $3,00 a day. It's a real bargain in comparison to the high cost of metered parking which is available in limited quantity and not that close to the shops.

Access off 195 is easy and perhaps easier from State Road Number 1 (Federal Expressway).

You can easily spend a full day there and on a sunny day, walking from store to store will be great exercise!

“An Up and Coming District of Miami”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

I hadn't been in the area in 2 years so I was very pleased to see the urban renewal has continued to happen in the area.It is becoming a very chic and unique area with great home and garden shopping and tasty restaurants. Well worth a poke around. Have fun.

The Miami Design district is a great place for people who appreciate modern furniture. There are a large number of furniture stores which sell very beautifully designed modern furniture made all over the world. There are also a number of trendy restaurants.

“The art walk is amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

Art walk happens at night with the galleries open and lots of people on the street. This happens every second saturday of the month and I recommend! Most galleries have drinks to offer and if you're hungry there's a place on the main road that has food trucks.

“Always something to see”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

There is always something to see on the streets in the Design District, usually can't afford anything to buy here, but the murals are impressive and the creative professionals are in abundance here. If you need an architect, you can find one here.
