A Picturesque Street to Call Home
Having perhaps one of the most unique and interesting founding stories of any neighborhood in Miami, Pine Tree Drive offers not only a rich history but a picture-perfect setting to lay down roots. Running from 23rd Street to 63rd Street just west of Collins Avenue, Pine Tree Drive is a pristine neighborhood with endless options for dining and entertainment.
Pine Tree Drive earned its unexpected name from the myriad pine trees one will see running along the road, south of 41st Street. Though they now serve as a whimsical aesthetic attribute, these Australian Pines were quite strategically placed. Planted by John Collins, a founder of Miami Beach, they originally worked to protect an avocado crop from the ample sun and at times strong ocean breeze.
Though it may be difficult for current residents and visitors to Pine Tree Drive to envision, there was once a vast farm alongside Pine Tree Drive. Throughout the 1880s through 1920s, Pine Tree Drive was premium oceanfront property. Residents would ride in row boats across the intercoastal and dock on the beach.
Now, Pine Tree Drive is informally divided into upper and lower sections. In the early 20th century, there were spectacular estates on the lots that served as that time’s “Millionaires Row.” Though few of the historical homes remain, the lots sizes have increased in value over time. Now, Pine Tree Drive is appreciated for its pristine land and easy walkability to all that Miami has to offer, both on land and on the sea.
