Extremly High End​ Pyramid-Shaped “Arte” Launches Sales in Surfside

For a long time, Surfside was a small, approachable little town by the sea. Yes, it was home to one of Miami’s few old bastions of faded aristocracy known as the Surf Club, and the entrance to Indian Creek Village, the island-sized escape where literally all of the approximately fifty homes are in the $10 million+ range.

The Future Miami Riverwalk is Taking Forever

The Miami River meanders through the heart of Miami, dividing the twin, skyscraper-strewn districts of Downtown and Brickell before it bends northwest and heads toward Miami International Airport. Planners intend the river to someday have a riverwalk, also known as the Miami River Greenway, running along both sides, much like the one that already exists along the New River in Fort Lauderdale. An idea that has been in the works for decades, the river walk will someday add life and vitality to the downtown core.

And Uber could be next.
