Bal Harbour Village stretches across approximately one-third of a mile of beautiful coastline from the bay to the Atlantic Ocean in northeast Miami-Dade County.
This once famous retreat for the rich and famous has a population of 3,305 residents and is one of the smallest municipalities in Miami-Dade County. Residents and visitors alike enjoy the stunning sunrises over the clear blue Atlantic, perfectly kempt white sand beaches and spectacular sunsets on the Everglades.
Harland Bartholomew and associates designed Bal Harbour in the 1930s but it wasnt until after World War II that construction and civilian settlement began in earnest. Crews had to build seawalls, fill swampland and create the yacht basin before plans could be drawn up to build water pumping stations, sewer systems and utilities, the latter of which were placed underground. Developers then drafted plans for development of the beachfront and residential areas.
Currently Bal Harbour Village is comprised of several high-rise condominiums offering beautiful ocean views, luxurious bayside homes, residential homes and hotels.
It is conveniently located near the Miami and Fort Lauderdale International Airports and south beach and its Art Deco district. Many folks come here just to stroll through the famous Bal Harbour Shops and marvel at the many distinct high-end boutiques selling garments created by internationally renowned designers. Add to this fine gourmet dining, entertainment and sizzling nightlife and its no wonder that hundreds of thousands visit this Atlantic oasis.
