Miami's Design District Wants to Be the Coolest Neighborhood in America
December 15, 2017
While much attention has been paid to the rise of the artsy, indie neighborhood of Wynwood you've definitely seen its colorful, graffitied walls on lnstagram more than once - it's the the adjacent Design District that has begun to emerge as the cultural heartbeat of the city. The five-block-or-so radius is largely the passion project of developer Craig Robins and his real escace company, Dacra. Born and raised in Miami, the 54-year old proved his talent for transforming neighborhoods into hot spots back in the early '90s, when he helped revitalize the seedy beachfronc Art Deco district into the stylish, high-gloss South Beach we all know today.
