From The Real Deal’s South Florida market report:  It’s an edgy area, full of art galleries, well-worn loft spaces and a few intrepid retail tenants — an Italian restaurant, an indoor-outdoor tavern and a few coffee shops.

It may sound like one of Brooklyn’s fast-evolving neighborhoods or parts of downtown Manhattan in the 1980s, but it’s not. It’s Wynwood, the small, mostly industrial zone on downtown Miami’s western frontier that is rapidly becoming one of the city’s meccas of urban cool.
