About Miami Beach, FL (Atlantic Heights)


Real Estate Prices and Overview

Atlantic Heights median real estate price is $360,795, which is more expensive than 68.7% of the neighborhoods in Florida and 67.4% of the neighborhoods in the U.S.

The average rental price in Atlantic Heights is currently $1,603, based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis. The average rental cost in this neighborhood is higher than 72.3% of the neighborhoods in Florida.

Atlantic Heights is a densely urban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Miami Beach, Florida. This is a coastal neighborhood (i.e., is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet).

Atlantic Heights real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) apartment complexes/high-rise apartments and small apartment buildings. Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the Atlantic Heights neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 1940 and 1969.

Vacant apartments or homes are a major fact of life in Atlantic Heights. The current real estate vacancy rate here is 39.9%. This is higher than the rate of vacancies in 97.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods. A relatively large percentage of housing here is seasonally occupied (30.7%). This can occur in vacation areas, and occasionally it is also found in neighborhoods that are primarily filled with college students, as some apartments could be vacant when school is not in session. If you live here year round, you may find that a number of buildings in your neighborhood are actually empty.

Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Miami Beach, the Atlantic Heights neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

If you like crowded places, then you will probably enjoy the the Atlantic Heights neighborhood. According to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive data analysis, this neighborhood is more densely populated than 95.6% of neighborhoods in the U.S., with 22,333 people per square mile living here. Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking. The Atlantic Heights neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet. Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront that are attractive to residents and visitors alike. In addition to being coastal, Atlantic Heights is a very nautical neighborhood, meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel, with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights and sounds of.

In addition, the Atlantic Heights neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 98.1% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.

Furthermore, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Atlantic Heights neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 96.3% of the residential real estate here is classified as such. This puts this neighborhood on the map as having a higher proportion of large apartment buildings than 99.4% of all neighborhoods in America.

Also of note, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 39.9% of the residential real estate vacant, the Atlantic Heights neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 97.2% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Atlantic Heights neighborhood has more South American and Brazilian ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 24.3% of this neighborhood's residents have South American ancestry and 4.6% have Brazilian ancestry.

Atlantic Heights is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 6.8% of its residents five years old and above primarily speak Portuguese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher than 99.5% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability

Some neighborhoods have more internal cohesiveness than others. While other neighborhoods feel like a collection of strangers who just happen to live near each other. Sometimes this comes down to not only the personalities of the people in a place, but how long people have been together in that neighborhood. NeighborhoodScout's research has revealed some interesting things about the rootedness of people in the Atlantic Heights neighborhood. In the Atlantic Heights neighborhood, a greater proportion of the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is found in 95.5% of U.S. Neighborhoods. This neighborhood, more than almost any other in America, has new residents from other areas. What is also interesting to note, is that the Atlantic Heights neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country (58.3%) than are found in 99.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: People

Divorcees may find friendship and understanding in this neighborhood, as 22.4% of its residents are divorced. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis found that this divorce rate is higher than in 98.7% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

In the Atlantic Heights neighborhood, many people's commute means walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis found that 11.4% of residents worked from home. This may not seem like a large number, but Scout's research shows that this is a higher percentage of people working from home than 95.5% of the neighborhoods in America. Often people who work from home are engaged in the creative or technological economy, such as is found in areas around Boston, and in Silicon Valley. Other times, people may be engaged in other businesses like trading stocks from home, or running a small beauty salon.

Also, in the Atlantic Heights neighborhood, walking to work is a real option for many. In fact, NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research reveals walking to and from work is the chosen way to commute for 12.0% of residents here. This is a higher proportion of walking commuters than we found in 95.1% of American neighborhoods. Get ready to put on your walking shoes if you move here!

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership

American households most often have a car, and regularly they have two or three. But households in the Atlantic Heights neighborhood buck this trend. 22.4% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in 95.2% of U.S. neighborhoods.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

How wealthy a neighborhood is, from very wealthy, to middle income, to low income is very formative with regard to the personality and character of a neighborhood. Equally important is the rate of people, particularly children, who live below the federal poverty line. In some wealthy gated communities, the areas immediately surrounding can have high rates of childhood poverty, which indicates other social issues. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals both aspects of income and poverty for this neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Atlantic Heights neighborhood in Miami Beach are low income, making it among the lowest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's research shows that this neighborhood has an income lower than 87.4% of U.S. neighborhoods. With 37.2% of the children here below the federal poverty line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 80.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel rather than people who earn their living by farming.

Boston's Beacon Hill blue-blood streets, Brooklyn's Orthodox Jewish enclaves, Los Angeles' Persian neighborhoods. Each has its own culture derived primarily from the ancestries and culture of the residents who call these neighborhoods home. Likewise, each neighborhood in America has its own culture – some more unique than others – based on lifestyle, occupations, the types of households – and importantly – on the ethnicities and ancestries of the people who live in the neighborhood.
