Most of what became the City of Aventura was initially developed as a high-rise residential area by Oxford Development Company during the late 1970s to 1980s when the area was still mostly swampland known as Biscayne Gardens. Since becoming a city in 1995, Aventura has established its niche as an enclave of tropical landscaping and water surrounding sleek high-rises and luxurious single-family homes.

This young vibrant city has a diverse demographic base and is known internationally as a premier city in which to live, dine, shop, and play.  According to the U.S. Census estimates, the city had a population of 35,762 in 2010.
