City Information

The City of Miami, known as the “Magic City" due to it’s rapid growth, is located in Southeast Florida, between the Florida Everglades and the Atlantic Ocean. Since its incorporation in 1896, the city has grown tremendously, transforming it into a global city known for its unique culture, influence on the fashion industry and importance in the world of finance. The city's central business district is home to the largest concentration of international banks in the United States, as well as home to several corporate headquarters and television studios.

Miami has an extremely diverse population and attracts a tremendous amount of foreign born people, resulting in a large Latin American population that includes Cubans, Nicaraguans, Colombians, Venezuelans, and Argentineans.

The city is known for its pastel-tinted Art Deco buildings line the city’s boulevards. Since 2001, Miami has been undergoing a large building boom with more than 50 skyscrapers rising over 400 feet (122 m) built or currently under construction in the city. Miami's skyline is ranked third most impressive in the U.S., behind New York City and Chicago.
