Miami Adding 7,000 New Apartments This Year, More Than Any Other U.S. City

Miami is the top city in the U.S. for new apartment construction in 2019, according to new statistics from Rentcafe.

A total of 6,989 new apartments will be built in Miami by the end of the year, more than any other U.S. city.

The number of new apartments is more than double what was delivered last year. A total of 3,148 units were built in Miami in 2018.

Miami is unusual compared to other U.S. cities, since most new apartment construction is concentrated in the urban core (generally within city of Miami limits).

In the Miami Metro area, a total of 13,031 apartments are expected to be delivered in 2019, ranking fourth among metro areas nationwide.

Now how about some office towers in the urban core as well? I know a lot of people who are commuting to Kendall or Doral.

Not enough demand for more office downtown. Rents are too high.

The most absurd thing.
Only in the U.S.
Doral and Miramar can’t keep up with demand. 2 cities with no mass transit and in the fringes of a county. Go figure!!!
We’re doomed to a car forever

Why doesn’t it occur to people that baylink mass transit isn’t REALLY that important. (hasn’t been for at least 100 years).
Think.
People post here that WE NEED the Baylink. Why?
Is Miami Beach losing interest?
Are the hotels dying?
Are the numbers down?
Is there a great number of people who CAN afford $21 Martini’s but can’t afford an $8 Uber from Brickell?

Think!

What has happened in Miami is the the lack of affordable housing for “the average worker”. Ten more years from now there will not be the current Overtown, Little Haiti, Allapatah, and Liberty City.

Markavious. Who is the “average” worker?
Do you consider yourself an average worker?

Miami Beach was once an avacado farm.
Fisher Island was once owned by FA Dorsey.
Things change….so what.

Aren’t your friends NY nerds who think that NY is awesome? I mean with all that crime, grime, ancient infrastructure and stifling congestion, not to mention corruption and mafia gangs? It must be really exciting. Just maybe, your friends are a little envious of the Miami environment, clean, fun and exciting? Or is it the fact that we’re sucking away your wealthy citizens, hedge funds etc rescuing them from the exorbitant tax structures?

Let me guess….you are in Miami because Miami-Dade College was your safety school.
Are you sure that your friends don’t think that you are a joke?

I won’t guess, because I speak only facts. I will put my education against yours any day. I’ve lived in New York for many years, so I know of which I speak. Much the same applies to the rest of the Northeast. Speaking of friends, my friends would not give you the time of day.

With how much demand there still is for non-luxury rentals, what are the odds that there will be oversupply in the next few years (for non-luxury, again)?

with all this construction we should have no problem getting the developers to build the underline, the mover, the baylink.
politicians of miami think of who elected you, if you do not want to do that, think in leaving something for the future, it may actually be named after you!!!
you should check and learn what NYC is getting from one Vanderbilt, a high rise being built next to grand central. that’s how it is done!!!

And zero mass transportation system.
We need to stop electing retrograde car addicted politicians if we want to live in a first-world country city.

Why doesn’t this sink in.
Your dopey professor told you that people need “mass transit”. We NEED to take cars of the street.
You believed him/her/sis/wiz/whatever.

Population continues to increase.
Educated are moving to Brickell.
Social Media Consultants are getting priced out and moving to Broward.

Study your premise.
People are moving to Miami despite shiny Portland style light rail and 50% of the roads being bike lanes.

Your dopey professors are wrong, and so are you. It’s okay. I was wrong once before.
