Miami Beach Community Development Corporation works to enhance the quality of community life and achieve neighborhood revitalization through a comprehensive housing and community development program that pursues and balances historic preservation and urban design, economic vitality and increasing job opportunity, and support for a diverse, eclectic, and successful neighborhood social fabric.

Founded in 1981 by the Miami Design Preservation League, MBCDC spearheaded the economic revitalization of the Art Deco District, public and private investment on Ocean Drive and Lincoln Road and re-emergence of South Beach as a world-class tourist destination.

The organization now works throughout Miami Beach and the region to preserve affordable housing and strengthen residential neighborhoods, to create increased economic opportunity and celebrate an extraordinary architectural and urban endowment, and to improve the quality of life for all those who live and work and visit the City.
