Area Highlights

A mirror on the past.

Just north of Brickell Point where the Miami River flows into Biscayne Bay, you can see the statue of a proud Tequesta Indian. It stands as a homage to the indigenous people who first settled this area. And in the 1870's, along the same shores of this river, pioneers William and Mary Brickell commenced development by operating their trading outpost. It was Mary who first envisioned the Brickell we know today. A neighborhood of wide, gently curving avenues with tree-lined medians and expansive water front estates that would appeal to a young nation's landed gentry. So prestigious did the area become, that before long it was referred to as "Millionaire's Row." The mansions have since given way to towering office buildings and luxury condominiums, yet Brickell is still a center for trade and commerce, where the pioneering, entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well.

A window on the future.

In recent years, Brickell has come to the forefront of international business and luxury living. Desire for waterfront property and Brickell's emergence as Miami's cosmopolitan center have encouraged considerable development and even grander plans for the future. Certainly the significance of being the second largest booming international financial center in the United States will further stimulate Miami's entire downtown area and lure new residents and business alike.

And just as diversity has always been the key to Miami’s growth and success, so too is it the key to Brickell's. Be it the wealth of cultural influences, the many international business interests represented, or even the simple contrast of the many modern office structures with quiet shady streets, Brickell is a dynamic area that the world is recognizing as a leader for the next century.

Windows on the world of commerce.

The Brickell Avenue Corridor is the second largest international banking center in the U.S., second only to New York. One trip down Brickell Avenue and you'll see why it is referred to as the "Wall Street of the South." As a booming hub of world commerce, Brickell is home to over 60 domestic and international financial institutions from 18 countries spanning four continents, making Brickell one of the most significant international banking centers in the world. This proliferation, along with Brickell's proximity to the State and Federal courthouses, has given rise to tremendous growth in the accounting and legal professions as well, particularly real estate and trade law.

In keeping with the pioneer spirit of William and Mary Brickell's trading post, Miami has earned the respected title of Free Trade Capital of the Americas. Rest assured, its prominence is not limited to Latin America. There are 36 consulates, foreign trade offices, and bi-national chambers of commerce located within the Brickell Avenue Corridor.

With over 18.6 million square feet of office space, Brickell is adjacent to PortMiami and within minutes of Miami International Airport, which services more scheduled international flights than any other airport in the Western Hemisphere. It's no surprise that when the world looks to the leader in international commerce, all eyes are on Brickell.

Windows on the world of luxury living.

Rising above the beautiful waters of Biscayne Bay is one of the most unique and identifiable skylines in the world. The luxury condominiums on exclusive Brickell Key and those that line Brickell Avenue provide an incomparable life of luxury to their residents. It seems only fitting that they be located on the same precious strip of land that was once known as "Millionaire's Row," in honor of the grand estates that stood upon it. Though much has changed in the last 100 years, the friendly neighborhood charm of Brickell endures.

Since 2003, over 22,785 new luxury apartments and condominium residences have been build within the Brickell Avenue Corridor and that trend shows no sign of abating. As the area continues to thrive, more and more people who work in Brickell are choosing to live in Brickell. Why commute when there is such an incredible quality of life just steps from the office?

And perhaps the greatest luxury enjoyed by Brickell's diverse population of young professionals, empty nesters, and international businesspeople is the sense of community that is so rare in most urban settings. Brickell residents are secure knowing they can jog, walk their dogs or simply take a nighttime stroll along the streets of the neighborhood they call home.

The cultural riches from our window on the world.

Magnificent panoramic views allow those who live and work on Brickell to see virtually all that is within their reach.
