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

Downtown Southeast 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 townhomes. Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the Downtown Southeast neighborhood are newer, built in 2000 or more recently. A number of residences were also built between 1970 and 1999.

Vacant apartments or homes are a major fact of life in Downtown Southeast. The current real estate vacancy rate here is 32.4%. This is higher than the rate of vacancies in 95.1% of all U.S. neighborhoods. A relatively large percentage of housing here is seasonally occupied (16.6%). 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

The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people get around.

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

The Downtown Southeast neighborhood is very densely populated compared to most U.S. neighborhoods. In fact, with 46,776 persons per square mile in the neighborhood, it is more packed with people than 98.3% of the nation's neighborhoods. Downtown Southeast is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet. Many times, such places have amenities that bring locals and visitors to the waterfront for recreational activities or to check out the scenery. In some densely populated areas that are less financially well-off, the neighborhood waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation. In addition to being coastal, Downtown Southeast 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, one of the really unique and interesting things about the look and setting of the Downtown Southeast neighborhood is that it is almost entirely dominated by large apartment buildings, such as apartment complexes or high-rise apartments. 96.2% 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 99.2% of all neighborhoods in America.

Furthermore, homes built from 2000 through today make up a higher proportion of the Downtown Southeast neighborhood's real estate landscape than 98.8% of the neighborhoods in America. When you are driving around this neighborhood, you'll notice right away that it is one of the newest built of any, with the smell of fresh paint, and the look of young landscaping nearly everywhere you look. In fact, 89.1% of the residential real estate here is classified as newer. In fact, the concentration of newer homes here is so great that they completely dominate the landscape. In most neighborhoods, there is a mixture of ages of residential real estate, but here it is almost completely built during one time frame: 2000 through today.

Also of note, the Downtown Southeast 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 93.6% 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.

Finally, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Downtown Southeast neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 32.4%, which is higher than 95.1% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation

In the Downtown Southeast neighborhood, many people's commute means walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis found that 26.1% 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 99.0% 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 Downtown Southeast 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 21.4% of residents here. This is a higher proportion of walking commuters than we found in 97.9% of American neighborhoods. Get ready to put on your walking shoes if you move here!

Notable & Unique: People

If knowledge is power, then imagine the cumulative power of one neighborhood where many of the adults have earned an advanced degree, such as a Masters, law degree, medical degree, or even a Ph.D. This is certainly the case in the Downtown Southeast neighborhood, where 42.7% have earned an advanced degree. Compare that to the average neighborhood in America, where just 12.7% of adults have completed a post-graduate degree, and you can see why this neighborhood is a stand out. In fact, this neighborhood has a higher rate of adults with an advanced degree than 98.1% of the neighborhoods in America.

Notable & Unique: Occupations

Executives, managers and professionals make up 69.5% of the workforce in the Downtown Southeast neighborhood which, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, is a higher proportion of such high-level people than is found in 96.1% of the neighborhoods in America. For this reason, this neighborhood really stands out as unique.

Notable & Unique: Diversity

Did you know that the Downtown Southeast neighborhood has more South American and Cuban ancestry people living in it than nearly any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 31.5% of this neighborhood's residents have South American ancestry and 7.0% have Cuban ancestry.

Downtown Southeast is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.1% 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 98.6% 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 Downtown Southeast neighborhood. In the Downtown Southeast neighborhood, a greater proportion of the residents living here today did not live here five years ago than is found in 98.1% 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 Downtown Southeast neighborhood has a greater percentage of residents born in another country (57.1%) than are found in 98.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods.


The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income

There are two complementary measures for understanding the income of a neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the conditions and character of a neighborhood.

The neighbors in the Downtown Southeast neighborhood in Miami are wealthy, making it among the 15% highest income neighborhoods in America. NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis reveals that this neighborhood has a higher income than 86.8% of the neighborhoods in America. In addition, 5.2% of the children seventeen and under living in this neighborhood are living below the federal poverty line, which is a lower rate of childhood poverty than is found in 65.4% of America's neighborhoods.

The Neighbors: Occupations

The old saying "you are what you eat" is true. But it is also true that you are what you do for a living. The types of occupations your neighbors have shape their character, and together as a group, their collective occupations shape the culture of a place.

In the Downtown Southeast neighborhood, 69.5% of the working population is employed in executive, management, and professional occupations. The second most important occupational group in this neighborhood is sales and service jobs, from major sales accounts, to working in fast food restaurants, with 17.0% of the residents employed. Other residents here are employed in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations (6.8%), and 6.7% in manufacturing and laborer occupations.

The Neighbors: Languages

The languages spoken by people in this neighborhood are diverse. These are tabulated as the languages people preferentially speak when they are at home with their families. The most common language spoken in the Downtown Southeast neighborhood is Spanish, spoken by 51.5% of households. Other important languages spoken here include English, Portuguese, Langs. of India and German/Yiddish.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry

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. Understanding where people came from, who their grandparents or great-grandparents were, can help you understand how a neighborhood is today.

In the Downtown Southeast neighborhood in Miami, FL, residents most commonly identify their ethnicity or ancestry as South American (31.5%). There are also a number of people of Mexican ancestry (8.9%), and residents who report Italian roots (7.4%), and some of the residents are also of Cuban ancestry (7.0%), along with some Puerto Rican ancestry residents (4.9%), among others. In addition, 57.1% of the residents of this neighborhood were born in another country.

Getting to Work

How you get to work – car, bus, train or other means – and how much of your day it takes to do so is a large quality of life and financial issue. Especially with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and means of one's commute can be a financial burden. Some neighborhoods are physically located so that many residents have to drive in their own car, others are set up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike. The greatest number of commuters in Downtown Southeast neighborhood spend between 15 and 30 minutes commuting one-way to work (63.1% of working residents), which is shorter than the time spent commuting to work for most Americans.

Here most residents (61.7%) drive alone in a private automobile to get to work. In addition, quite a number also hop out the door and walk to work to get to work (21.4%) and 6.5% of residents also take the train for their daily commute. In a neighborhood like this, as in most of the nation, many residents find owning a car useful for getting to work.
