Neighborhood Spotlight: “SoFi”

Located at the southern tip of Miami Beach rests one of the area’s most desired neighborhoods, SoFi, which is short for “South of Fifth”. This area is one of the oldest in South Beach and still showcases original buildings from the early 1920’s. SoFi even used to have a dog racing track in the 1930’s! Around the middle of the last century, SoFi became dilapidated like a lot of South Beach and little to no new construction was started.

Within the past 20 years, the city and  investors have realized how valuable the land truly is and began redevelopment with such residential gems as the South Pointe Towers,  Portofino Tower, and Murano at Portofino.

While the neighborhood might be small geographically, it offers a multitude of alluring amenities including two dog parks, South Pointe Park which sports a walking path directly on the water, a slew of amazing restaurants including Joe’s Stone Crab, Prime One Twelve and Red Steakhouse, 5 blocks of pristine white sand beach, night clubs, bars and much more.

Now, the South of Fifth neighborhood has exploded with development and is heralded as one of the best places to live in the entire city with its relaxed neighborhood feel, while still being just blocks from the more bustling parts of South Beach. Its close proximity and easy of entry to the MacArthur Causeway makes it a breeze to run, bike or drive to downtown Miami in mere minutes. Residential options are amazing from modern glass sky scrapers to quaint historic single-family homes, SoFi really has it all!
