Brickell Condos and Neighborhood Guide
Brickell, also known as the Financial District of Miami, is home to a large number of international banks such as HSBC, Espirito Santo Bank, and Banco Santander. These banks are predominantly located along Brickell Avenue – the main thoroughfare running through Brickell and extending north to south from the Brickell Avenue Bridge to the Rickenbacker Causeway. Brickell is considered to be one of South Florida’s most prestigious neighborhoods and is a perennial favorite place to live among affluent, young professionals.
At the heart of Brickell, located along South Miami Avenue, are two large-scale, mixed-use developments – Mary Brickell Village and Brickell City Centre. Mary Brickell Village, the smaller of the two developments, includes 200,000 square feet of bars, shops, and restaurants. Rosa Mexicano, Oceanaire Seafood Room, Blue Martini, and Fado Irish Pub are just a few of the more established, noteworthy tenants at Mary Brickell Village.
Brickell City Centre, which is currently under construction and expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2016, is a development of great significance and mammoth proportions. Spanning over 9 acres and at a cost of over $1 Billion, Brickell City Centre will be an urban oasis to live, work, and shop. It will include 500,000 square feet of open-air retail featuring luxury brands such as Chopard and Valentino, a 5-star hotel called East Hotel, and 780 lux residences in the Brickell City Centre towers called Rise and Reach.
Brickell is a densely populated neighborhood of Miami where towering condo developments abound. Some of the more distinguished condo developments in Brickell include Icon Brickell, Santa Maria, Jade at Brickell Bay, and Bristol Tower. Echo Brickell, Brickell Flatiron, and One Brickell are just a few of the future condo developments slated for Brickell.
Brickell is located just south of Downtown Miami, over the Brickell Avenue Bridge. By car, Brickell is 10 minutes from Coconut Grove and Key Biscayne and 20 minutes from South Beach, the Miami International Airport, Midtown Miami, and the Design District.
