Site Area: 214 acres

The purpose of this project is to document an architecturally significant neighborhood that has never been comprehensively surveyed. Silver Bluff is a unique Boom-era neighborhood in the City of Miami that was built in three successive waves in the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s and almost entirely built out by 1955. It is located in close proximity to Downtown, Brickell, and Biscayne Bay and continues to have strong historic integrity. Silver Bluff is best known today for its abundance of well-built, beautifully designed, 1930s-era small homes.

Understanding the importance of documenting Silver Bluff, Miami-Dade County’s leading preservation non-profit, Dade Heritage Trust, applied for and was awarded a Small Matching Grant by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Historical Resources to conduct a comprehensive survey. The current survey effort focused on all historic resources that are 50 years or older within the study area. Resources for consideration included buildings, structures, districts, and landscapes that possess architecture of historical significance. The completed report meets the requirements of Chapter 1A-46 of the Florida Administrative Code: Archaeological and Historical Report Standards and Guidelines.
