The City of Doral is amid an important and deliberate transformation. Since the early 2000s, a surge of new development and economic growth has made the area one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in Miami-Dade County for businesses and residents alike. The city’s 15-square-mile boundaries are conveniently located just one mile from Miami International Airport and twelve miles from Downtown Miami, with easy access to several major north-south and east-west highways, making Doral among the more accessible communities within the county.
The city itself is relatively young, having first been incorporated in 2003. Today, it is home to approximately 70,000 residents and more than 100,000 people who work within the city. Homes are generally well within market-rate averages, with ample new-construction inventory in place and in the pipeline. City officials have been working to ensure Doral’s growth is sustainable by applying master-planning principles towards development to establish the city as a self-contained, pedestrian-friendly, complete live-work-play destination. Such foresight has earned the city recognitions such as Best City in Florida for Business Start-ups by Businessweek, ISO 37120 Platinum Certification as a Smart City on the same level as San Francisco and Dubai, and #3 in Best Places in the USA to Retire by US News & World Report.
