Downtown Miami Population Up 38% Since 2010

Downtown Miami’s population is getting younger, wealthier, more female, and growing fast, according to a new study.

According to the newly released report by Miami’s Downtown Development Authority, the population of downtown Miami is up 38% since 2010.

3,700 new residents have moved in since the last study in 2016, or an increase of 4%. That number will likely increase with thousands of new apartments set to come to market in the next few years.

Women make up a greater percentage of downtown’s population than in 2010. The population is now 50.6% male and 49.4% female, compared to a 3% gap in 2010.

Also on the rise is median household income, up 55 percent since 2010 for area residents. Downtown Miami also boasts better educated residents than the rest of the region, with 54 percent of residents having a bachelors degree or higher.

Children are one of the district’s fastest-growing groups.There are now 11,484 residents ages 0-14 — a 53 percent increase since 2010.

Where, Midtown? What do you think Coastal Link is for? Putting the cart before the horse, I see. Or in the case, expensive tiny electric buses you ride for free over existing infrastructure, which has been criminally underutilized until Brightline.

…who build because of it and make dead zones walkable.

In most cities, the distance from different points of downtown to stops is not unreasonable. However, in Miami the heat and humidity (as well as uphill climb) make it seem further and taxing — even worse, a risky proposition if you have a professional appointment.

the metro mover stations suck the escalators are completely uninviting(the whole stations are) they are less than 1 person wide and there’s usually only 1 in one direction. Miami needs to change the way it supports it’s own corruption because the tax payers are fcked

South Florida as a whole is riddled with vultures aka single males on the prowl. Go out to most places and you will see more guys than girls.

A somewhat more female and LGBT population would tone down Miami’s machismo culture for the better.

Do we have enough parking spaces for the population growth?

No, but all the people on this site will tell us we have to take “transit” and not drive anywhere. Why are people so against cars? I would much prefer a car than a Miami trolley with hard wooden seats that gets stuck in traffic and stops at every corner.

How about a light rail line? Or bus lanes with signal priority?

How about the thousands of us with young kids and car seats for 5+ years that work in the downtown/Brickell area? Public transit doesn’t solve me getting my kid to pre-school and work in a timely, safe or realistic manner.

Don’t be lazy, Get up earlier and use the metrorail.
Otherwise stay in Kendall, the new Walmart has plenty of parking

How much time do you spend in traffic to buy those shoes and bespoke cocktails?

The idea is that transit becomes a better option. You save time, money, and can read or do work during your commute.

If there isn’t somebody crying about developers building parking features, there’s somebody whining about not having enough parking… smh….

Nice, but there definition of ‘downtown’ is pretty broad. Midtown and Wynwood are two very distinct neighborhoods that are well north of the actual downtown. Still god news nonetheless…

It is strange reporting….the DDA Report calls 3 neighborhoods the Urban Core of Downtown. Then lumps in the other neighborhoods to the north as “Greater Downtown”.
Mid is not Down or Up. So how would Midtown (or Uptown if we had one) be within DOWNtown?

To people in most of the country, Downtown is where the tall buildings are. Miami has outgrown its original downtown boundaries with high rises over a 5 mile stretch. The labels haven’t kept up with development.

New York City has a downtown. They have tall buildings in Midtown and in the Upper West side and the Upper East side.
But the downtown is still the downtown.
To people who know what they are talking about, downtown is Brickell, the CBD, and Park West in Miami.

How about Biscayne Blvd, Miami Ave, or I95. Or any and all of the avenues that already connect?
Quit whining.

I must be terrible with money. I make a decent amount more than the listed HH median income and feel well priced out of the area.

Well, which one is it, you feel “well priced out of the area” or you actually are?

I’m not, but it still feels expensive. It was more a comment on how affordable the half of households making less than the median find the area.

Our current politicians are blaming our Transit/ Traffic problems on decades of neglect, from previous politicians.

Basically, they are pointing there fingers at previous poliiticans, but yet, they aint doing nothing at all to fix the problem themselves.

The Hypocrisy!
