Aventura is a city located in northeastern Miami-Dade County, Florida. The city name is from the Spanish word for adventure and was named Aventura because that was the name of the original group of condominium developments in the area. The name predates the well known mall built near the condominium developments. According to the U.S Census estimates of 2005, the city had a population of 29,391.
Most of what would later become the City of Aventura was initially developed during the late 1970s and into the 80s as a high-rise residential area by Oxford Development Company, when the area was still mostly swampland known as Biscayne Gardens. Some of the Miami area's tallest and most prestigious condominium towers are located there.
Aventura is also home to the Aventura Mall, a high-end regional mall which was developed by Donny Soffer and Eddie Lewis of Oxford Development and is currently owned by Simon Property Group and Soffer's Turnberry Associates. The enormous success of the mall encouraged explosive growth in the area and saw the closure of stores at the competing The Mall at 163rd Street, which only recently has been revitalized. On November 7, 1995, the City of Aventura was incorporated.
