Miami Ranks Fifth Nationwide For Population Growth Since 2010

The Miami-Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach area has seen among the highest population growth of any metro area since 2010, according to Census data released last month.

In total, there were 6,198,782 in the area as of July 1, 2018.

The metro has has grown by 632,488 people since April 1, 2010. That is the fifth highest amount in the nation, with all top five metros being warm weather areas.

Miami-Dade alone has added 263,568 people since 2010, despite nearly all developable land being built out long ago. The county surpassed Dallas in the top ten ranking of most populous counties this decade.

Miami-Dade’s growth accelerated in 2018 compared to 2017, although Broward fell, an analysis in the Herald showed.

Population growth in Miami is fueled by international arrivals, the Herald noted. As with many big cities, the area’s domestic migration was negative. Despite that, Miami’s growth from  international arrivals has led to large net gains every year.

Give it a rest, that worn out line you’re always using concerning your displeasure with the look of Melo’s buildings are futile.

And those lots probably were empty and vacant since the 1970’s before Melo came along.

False, it was a shabby albeit functional neighborhood until the 1990s when genius city leaders decided to demolish everything instead of promoting smart growth principles.

“Shabby albeit functional neighborhood”
BS!!! it was a dilapidated, empty lots full of junkies and drug dealers , male prostitution and old houses!!!!
I used to live on 555 NE on The Plaza Venetian and at night I used to drive from work all the way to Miami Beach because I was afraid to exit I-95
At least with Melo “ ugly “ buildings the area is walkable and nicer ?

I’ll take a mediocore looking buildings over the decrepit structures, crack houses and dirt lots they replaced any day! But yeah, hopefully Melo will step up the designs some.
