Uniquely situated in the heart of a burgeoning world-class city, Overtown is poised to become the next great location to eat,  live, work, and play. Building on its historic character and charm as the former epicenter of African American commerce, Overtown is well on its way to reclaiming the prominence that it once held in South Florida.

 

With museums, galleries and historic churches, the jewel that is Overtown is bolstered by its central location to Downtown Miami, the Brickell Financial District, Wynwood and Midtown Miami. The historic neighborhood also features unparalled proximity to Miami International Airport, the University of Miami and Jackson Memorial Hospital, various colleges and educational facilities and major attractions such as:  the Museum Park (Perez Art Museum and Museum of Science), the American Airlines Arena and the Adrienne Arsht Center for Performing Arts.

 

Additionally, Overtown is conveniently located near most of Miami-Dade County’s major roadway arteries, providing drivers with easy access to Interstate 95, I-395 and the Port of Miami.  Other forms of public transportation by trolley and Metrorail are also easily accessible.

 

In addition, Overtown offers fun family activities including festivals, arts and entertainment, youth recreation, and health & wellness activities.   More opportunities to live in this historic community is on the rise — from affordable housing apartments to luxury condos. Make yourself at home in Overtown.

HOUSING

There is a vast demand for affordable housing in Miami and the CRA has responded by investing over $79 million in over 1,200 housing units in Overtown. The housing units include the development of four new affordable housing communities and renovations to several multi-family units. Three of the new developments are currently under construction and nearing completion, while the fourth is scheduled to break ground later this year.
