Streamline Moderne, Colonial Revival, Mediterranean Revival, and Bungalows blend with the distinctive sub-tropical landscape. With its narrow and shaded streets, and the City Marina as a focal point, this is the town's most pedestrian oriented neighborhood. The district contains 51 contributing buildings.

Constructed predominantly between 1922 and 1943, the district displays various architectural styles ranging from Mediterranean and Mission Revival to Monterrey, Florida Cottages, and Art Moderne.

The buildings highlight the designs of prominent architects of the day including Gustav Maas, Sam Ogren, Sr., and John Volk. The Marina District is bounded by East Atlantic Avenue to the north, SE 4th Street to the south, SE 7th Avenue to the west and the Intracoastal Waterway to the east.
