The City of Sunny Isles Beach has gone through drastic changes in less than a decade. From a long strip of motels, built in the 50's, it is now home to some of the most luxurious high rise condos in the Miami area.
Almost overnight, million dollar oceanfront apartments, fashionable shops, cafes and restaurant have made Sunny Isles one of the most fashionable and coveted locations in South Florida.
Large condominiums, built in the 70's, such as Winston Towers, coexist with the new giant structures: Ocean I, Ocean II, Ocean III, Ocean IV, Acqualina, Trump Grande, the Trump Towers, Turnberry Ocean Colony, are just a few in the growing skyline.
During the last few years property values have greatly increased in Sunny Isles.
Sunny Isles Beach population is estimated at more than 15,000 people.
A plethora of ethnic stores - a result of the perpetual melting pot phenomenon - line the shopping centers along Collins Avenue. The blend of wealthy tourists, South American, European visitors and immigrants, and the traditional snowbirds configure an incredibly diversified population.
Throughout its recent transformation, Sunny Isles has maintained much of its original charm. The famous Rascal House is gone but the fishermen are still at the Newport Pier, and the beachwear stores, the nonchalant walk of beach attired youngsters along Collins Avenue, remind the residents that the spirit is the same.
