Bay Harbor Islands MIMO district

The east Island of Bay Harbor Islands, Florida,contains the largest, most intense collection of Miami
Mid-Century Moden (MiMO) buildings in the world. I learned this 2002 when  I moved  there , attracted by the town’s comfortable, pedestrian oriented style. As interior designer and resident Teri D’amico gave me a tour of my new neighborhood,she pointed out the special features of those wonderful structures and mentioned a few architects familiar to me from the Art  Deco Historic  District of South Beach, just seven miles away. Some of those architects had transitioned from the Art Deco genre of the 1930s to MiMO at mid-century.

Bay Harbor Island homes range from
three-bedroom villas further island to
nine-bedroom coastal homes. Bay Harbor Islands offer a large amount of waterfront homes that goes beyond just the bayfront experience. Bay Harbor Islands are separated by a small intracoastal waterway
that provides even more waterfront homes that have high levels of luxury and privacy.
Bay Harbor Island homes are available on a majority of both islands, however, part of the easterly island has waterfront condos.

Bay Harbor Island homes are located around these condos but for the most part the easterly island’s southern region is exclusively waterfront condos.
