The Miami Design District is a neighborhood in Miami, Florida, United States, and a shopping, dining, and cultural destination. The Design District was redeveloped in the early 2000s under the direction of developer Craig Robins, president, and CEO of Dacra, and L Real Estate with investment from General Growth Properties. It is home to over 130 art galleries, showrooms, creative services, architecture firms, luxury fashion stores, antique dealers, eateries, and bars.
Historically a part of Buena Vista, the Design District is located south of Lemon City (Little Haiti). It is roughly bound by North 36 St (US 27) to the south, North 43rd Street to the north, West First Avenue to the west, and Biscayne Boulevard to the east. The Design District is in the crossroads of many prominent Miami neighborhoods, with the artsy Wynwood neighborhood to the south, Lemon City (Little Haiti) and the historic 1920s Buena Vista neighborhood to the north, and the wealthy Upper East Side neighborhoods to the east. After decades of falling into disrepair, the Design District has been restored as a destination for the arts, design, and fashion. High-end brands like Louis Vuitton, Dior, Prada, Saint Laurent, and Hermes are located in the Design District as well as restaurants from award-winning chefs like Michael Schwartz and celebrities like Gloria and Emilio Estefan; a public art collection with works from Buckminster Fuller, Marc Newsom and Urs Fischer as well as museums and galleries like the Institute for Contemporary Art, Miami, The de la Cruz Collection of Contemporary Art and Locust Projects.

More than twenty years ago, Miami native Craig Robins recognized the potential of the Miami Design District and started acquiring buildings in the neighborhood. His goal was to reinvigorate a forgotten part of Miami, transforming it into a unique creative community through exceptional architecture, design, and experiences. This singular vision for the neighborhood has now been realized. Today the District is a vibrant community where residents and visitors enjoy amazing shopping, chef-driven restaurants, world-class museums, and abundant outdoor space. Through careful stewardship and rich cultural programming, the Design District began to attract design brands, important art collections and design installations, and great dining experiences.
