MiMo / Biscayne Boulevard Historic District

"Statement of Significance:

The importance of Biscayne Boulevard cannot be overemphasized as it began and still remains a principal north/south artery through Miami. The buildings constructed along this wide corridor illustrate Miami’s changing fortunes; its changing demographics and the resultant change to the character of this principal thoroughfare.

The construction of Biscayne Boulevard from Downtown Miami northward did not begin until 1925. Before that travelers from the north would enter Miami on West Dixie Highway along NE 2nd Street, angling across the FEC Railroad tracks at NE 36th Street. The realization of Biscayne Boulevard was the result of millions of dollars of private capital, a stunning demonstration of entrepreneurship during a period when the financial health of Miami was in great jeopardy." - City of Miami Designation Report  - MiMo/BISCAYNE BOULEVARD HISTORIC DISTRICT
