Miramar is a city in Broward County, Florida, United States. It is a principal city of the Miami metropolitan area, which was home to an estimated 6,012,331 people at the 2015 census. Miramar was founded by A.L. Mailman to serve as a “bedroom community” for nearby Miami and Fort Lauderdale. Mr. Mailman bought the original property he was to develop from H.D. Perry, Sr. in 1953. He built 56 homes on the property that were inexpensive homes of concrete and flat roofs. These homes sold quickly because of the low cost of both the homes and the land, and the city of Miramar came into being.
The city was incorporated on May 26, 1955 and named for the Cuban city outside of Havana where Mailman had a summer home (Miramar translates to “Look at the Sea” in Spanish). The city seal is inscribed with the motto “Beauty and Progress”.
A fact not widely known is that the residential City of Miramar is one of the largest cities in size in the State of Florida. With 2/3 of land not yet developed, the decision to guide and control the city’s growth remains a wise one.
Miramar is just northwest of Miami between the Everglades and the sun-drenched beaches of South Florida’s east coast, offering residents easy access to the Miami and Fort Lauderdale beaches, approximately 12 miles northeast or southeast.
