Little River: The New Creative Force in Miami
Why does Miami often feel like the ignored stepchild of the bigger cosmopolitan cities in the U.S. and beyond? While South Beach tourists may understand the city on one level—that of glitzy hotels and clubs—what about the other side of Miami? Beyond the $20 drinks and over-the-top nightlife is an often-overlooked city with local artists, innovative entrepreneurs, small businesses, and burgeoning restaurateurs who are somewhat “off the grid” from the conventionally known Miami, yet these are the people that make the city what it is.
We are a creative force, from all different creative backgrounds and disciplines, made even stronger through collaboration.
One such creative haven is the Little River Business District. Little River offers a new kind of urban environment for dining, shopping, and creating where there is a natural encouragement for spontaneous, yet valuable interactions. Just as Bloommiami was one of the pioneering firms to open shop over 10 years ago on 2nd Avenue in the Design District, we’re now excited to be a part of the creative transformation of our new location in Little River.
We’re passionate about celebrating the vibrant creative encounters that take place here. We recognize that Little River is not South Beach, and we proudly understand this area’s unique qualities and offerings. Our city, with sections like Little River, has the resources locally to develop projects on a level competitive with any major urban city. We are a creative force, from all different creative backgrounds and disciplines, made even stronger through collaboration.
Every Miami neighborhood has its own unique identity that must be communicated by locals who are passionate about its success. We believe in leveraging local knowledge, expertise, and resources. The threads that make up the fabric of this city must be sensitively translated so that the result is a visitor experience that is not only original, but exceptional. We want to export the culture and talent of our “other” Miami in a way that is emotional, relevant, and memorable.
