Rental Central: Miami’s Real Estate Scene Revvs Up with Luxury Rental Towers

Miami’s luxury real estate market has risen to global prominence in recent years, with a mind-boggling array of new high-end offerings. But the majority of those new developments have focused on condominiums, with rentals largely overlooked. Now, a dazzling flock of new rental towers are opening their doors – promising luxe home options and alluring amenities for young professionals who may not be ready to buy a property but still have sky-high living standards.

Here are a few of our best picks for Miami’s newest luxury rental towers:  

Downtown 5th: Melo Group’s Downtown 5th, the single largest multifamily development ever built in Downtown Miami’s Central Business District, is now open to renters. The twin 52-story towers comprises 1,042 rental apartments and approximately 12,500 square feet of ground floor retail, with amenities that include three swimming pools, a state-of-the-art fitness center, private workspaces, a social room, game room and coffee lounge. Best of all, the transit-oriented development’s Downtown location puts residents within blocks of some of Miami’s top destinations for arts & culture, shopping, dining and entertainment, as well as several public transportation hubs within walking distance. 

CORE at Link at Douglas: Now open to residents, the 22-story CORE tower at Link at Douglas offers 312 luxury apartments with unmatched connectivity and a central location near Miami’s hottest shopping, dining and entertainment destinations. Situated at the confluence of two of Miami’s hottest neighborhoods – Coconut Grove and Coral Gables – CORE marks the first tower to open at Link at Douglas, a 7-acre mixed-use development being built adjacent to Miami-Dade’s Metrorail and The Underline linear park. CORE residents can enjoy lifestyle amenities such as a rooftop pool deck with stunning views, poolside grilling, private cabanas, as well as a fitness center with a yoga studio, business center and media room.

Bezel Miami Worldcenter: Slated for delivery later this year, ZOM Living’s Bezel tower is situated in the middle of Miami Worldcenter, a 27-acre ‘city within a city’ destination that offers a mix of residential, shopping, restaurant/entertainment, commercial and hotel uses in the heart of Downtown Miami. Located directly adjacent to the Miami-Dade Metromover and just steps away from Brightline’s MiamiCentral train station, the transit-oriented tower will include state-of-the-art amenities with stunning bay and ocean balcony views overlooking the FTX Arena and Museum Park.
