MIAMI, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 -- Everyone's asking who?... what?... where?... as Midtown Miami transforms with bustling happy hours, restaurant openings, international art events and new residents calling Miami's burgeoning destination home. From a former desolate railroad yard to a $2.3 billion, 56-acre artistic neighborhood that mirrors New York's SoHo District, the area has undergone a gentrification to arrive on Miami's map as the true 'art and soul' of the city.

Midtown is host to internationally-recognized eateries, shops, events, entertainment and a scintillating mix of condos with sweeping bay and city views, attracting attention from around the globe. The neighborhood offers an unmatched experience that is catching the curiosity of the "who's who," including Eva Longoria, Gloria Estefan, Lee Schrager and more, at restaurants like Sugarcane raw bar grill and Mercadito Midtown.

Offering New York-style surroundings and a distinct energy, Midtown hotspots are adding flavor to this up-and-coming area: newly-opened ACME Bakery & Coffee Co. serves freshly-made, handcrafted breads, pastries and delicacies, and Feverish popsicle factory gives adults a gourmet twist on the frozen treat concept. Pasion de Cielo will brew specialty coffees from South America in a loungey-type atmosphere when it opens in early 2013.

Art is an integral part of Midtown's innovative approach, having hosted seven major satellite art fairs during Art Basel Miami Beach 2012. The neighborhood is immersed between the Design District, which houses the fashionable 40th Street shops and interior design studios and new ultra-luxury retailers such as Cartier, Prada, Dior Homme and Louis Vuitton, and the artsy warehouses of Wynwood. Midtown is the only destination micro-city with luxury residences over retail just steps from major boutiques, art and design galleries, and everyday conveniences.

Experiencing a refreshing neighborhood feel, the approximately 1,000 residences within three Midtown towers truly give life to the active surroundings. The high-rise tower of 4 Midtown is currently 50 percent sold, with 150 condo sales in the last three months valued at $56 million. The influx of sales is a testament to the success of this revitalized community that once stood as the Florida East Coast Railroad storage site.

With condos exclusively marketed by Fortune International, units range from 686 square feet to 1,842 square feet, with penthouses up to 3,557 square feet, and are priced from $227,900 to $2,367,900.

Centrally located near downtown, Midtown Miami brings artists, young professionals, foreigners, families and "urbanites" loving city life to a walkable locale. It is surrounded by cultural and entertainment venues, is minutes from Miami Beach, and is in close proximity to I-95, offering direct access to the Port of Miami and major international airports.

The 4 Midtown Sales Center, located at 3301 NE First Avenue, Floor 7, is open Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday-Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 888-734-9735 or visit www.midtownmiamiresidences.com.
