Welcome to Brickell
An enticing Manhattan-esque atmosphere and tropical vibes
Towering skyscrapers with gorgeous condominiums and world-class hotels paint the skyline of Brickell. The neighborhood rests on the edge of the Miami River and Biscayne Bay and is known as Miami’s financial district. While business deals are made here, Brickell strives to be more than that, and it shows. The pulse of Brickell has started to quicken and fill the area with a renewed sense of interest and vibrancy. From dining and shopping to a thriving nightlife, Brickell has become the Manhattan of the south — the ultimate place to be.
The neighborhood was named after Will and Mary Brickell. They established a trading post in the area in 1871. Brickell carries on their tradition with its bold, contemporary-facing atmosphere and international reach. Young, business-savvy professionals are anxious to come here and make their mark. They want to work hard and play harder while enjoying the fruits of their bounty, and Brickell is eager to please. Brickell provides first-rate shopping and dining in an open-air environment, easy access to entertainment venues, and luxurious condominiums with scenic water views. The question is not, “Why Brickell?” but rather, “Why aren’t you here?”

Life in Brickell is fast-paced, and its urban landscape keeps you close to work and play. Almost everything in the area is accessible by foot. Many locals walk or rent sidewalk scooters to get from one place to another. There is a free commuter rail and trolley service for short trips around town and buses and trains for longer excursions.
Brickell is close to everything. Downtown Miami is steps away, and Miami Beach is a quick 10-minute drive across the bridge. The beaches of Key Biscayne and Coconut Grove are also within reach, and the banks of the river and the bay are right at your fingertips.
