::  Prince Edward Court Apartments
402-412 NW 12 Avenue
Year Built:1923
Architect: unknown
Date Designated: April 7, 2015

This humble Mission-styled courtyard apartment is a representative example of both a typology and a style popular in the United States, particularly in Miami and west coast cities, during the first two decades of the twentieth century. The building was constructed in 1923 and named the “Prince Edward Court Apartments.” In 1925, at the height of the real estate boom of the 20s, the apartments were purchased for $175,000 by a corporation established and run by the employees of the Miami National Bank and Trust Company in order to provide affordable housing for their fellow employees. This property has strong socio-economic significance as it signals one of the first examples of the then-innovative idea of employee-run housing corporations in the City of Miami.
