Downtown Miami is a major employment center within the state of Florida. According to our 2018 Demographics study (file:///C:/Users/Vega/Downloads/MDDA_DemoPopReport_05072018.pdf) , an estimated 175,000 professionals come to work in our community every day, Monday – Friday. While the majority of this workforce works in offices for small businesses and large multinationals alike, there is also a strong presence of global and local retail brands. Downtown is home to Miami Dade College’s main campus and the offices of the Miami-Dade Government and as a result, it’s no wonder that these two sectors employ the largest amount of downtown’s workforce. However, look beyond these two industries and you’ll see a thriving professional services sector representing big and small law and accounting firms in addition to a growing and thriving international banking and finance community. Gaining momentum and drawing quite a bit of attraction is downtown’s technology industry.
As it pertains to retailers, downtown has been home to many local and home-grown names like Alberto Cortes’ Perfumery and Kirk’s Jewelers. But with the arrival of Brickell City Centre and soon to be Central Fare and MiamiWorld Center, global brands are adding to the mix with the addition of names like Zara and Joe & the Juice.
