So, if you’re curious about the kind of luxury residences available for such global citizens, we’ve ranked the 5 most expensive, thus luxurious, condo buildings in Brickell for 2020 below.

Why Choose to Live in Brickell?

First, you may be wondering what does the Brickell neighborhood of Miami have to offer? Well, it was recently ranked as the number one city in all of South Florida to live (including Broward and Palm Beach counties). Not only is Brickell the second-largest banking hub in the United States, but also home to several international consulates, banks, businesses, and a majority of the offices in Miami. It is considered the international financial gateway to Latin America, as well as some of Europe, including Spain. As such, you will see that many international companies have U.S. headquarters in the Brickell Financial District. 

Brickell is also serviced by all major public transportation systems in the city, giving it one of the highest transit scores of 98. It further ranks second on our most walkable neighborhoods in Miami study, with a near-perfect walkscore of 98, meaning most hotspots and conveniences can easily be reached on foot. 

Over the past few years, this financial district has also evolved from being a drab business neighborhood to an exciting shopping, dining and leisure destination, thanks to the addition of the Brickell City Centre outdoor, luxury shopping mall, plus South Miami Avenue’s collection of high-end retail, restaurants, bars, and lounges. Even the public schools in this Bayside, coastal neighborhood are above average – making it a true live-work-play destination for individuals and families alike.
