A Vision of Miami's Future Density Trajectory and the Impressive Growth of Edgewater

Exploring Miami's future density expansion patterns.

We have determined the city's future density trajectory by analyzing Miami's existing and potential densities. Our visualizations indicate that Miami's density will become more concentrated downtown while also expanding towards the north and west. 

Overview of Edgewater: a Miami north downtown neighborhood.

Located north of downtown, Edgewater's triangular area encompasses around 1,000 properties. The neighborhood’s properties have a total land area of 16.5 million SF, with existing buildings spanning 10.7 million SF and a potential buildable area of 227 million SF.

Edgewater's impressive growth and capacity for expansion.

Edgewater has experienced significant growth in population and median income over the past decade, with a 56% increase in population and a 33% rise in median income. With zoning regulations allowing for a 21-fold expansion, the total capacity may grow to 380,000 individuals.
