Not really too in on the market but all I do know is a loft on Downtown around 700sq ft goes for about $1200-$1300 a month, 16th floor pretty new building from 2006 or so. So $2000 a month seems alright but of course depends on the building.

As for other urban areas besides of Downtown/Brickell and Miami Beach there are no large urban places but there are still neighborhoods which can be walkable.

A place in Bal Harbor or Surfside would be a walkable area right on the beach with places to eat and shop near by walking distance. A place near Downtown South Miami would be walkable too with many places to eat, drink and shop near by.

Midtown Miami development also fits this, along with Merrick Park, More like malls with apartments but the neighborhoods around Midtown are growing into themselves and its becoming more of the neighborhood than just the development. It will take more time though.

Also a place near Downtown Coral Gables/Miricle Mile could fit in as walkable too.

Again Miami is not DC, you are not going to find Foggy Bottom or Dupont or U Street, at leas not yet. It is hard to talk about urban/walkable places in a city that is so young yet is not like most cities its age since it is more dense and has less sprawl than most young sunbelt cities if not less than all of them. It has its pockets but besides for Miami Beach and Downtown/Brickell it can't compete with the older Northern Cities.
