Brickell. No one really needs to say more. It is known around the world as the place where Miami’s business gets done, where international stars live amongst executives in the tech and VCs worlds, and the crossroads of the United States with Europe and Latin America. So it doesn’t come as a huge surprise that the neighborhood is home to some of the finest residences catering to a wide array of residents, spanning from globetrotting professionals to star entertainers, to business moguls plus their families. 

If you’re curious about the kind of luxury residences available for such global citizens, we’ve ranked the 5 most luxurious condo buildings in Brickell for 2021 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 it’s 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. Many international companies have U.S. headquarters in the Brickell Financial District. 

And in the last year, Brickell has become the darling of major tech and VC companies, as dozens have either relocated to Miami or established new offices. This means if you like to walk to work, or live very near where you work, this is the neighborhood for you.

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. Miami, in itself, ranks as the No. 1 Walkable and Bikeable city in the United States according to a 2021 study of 78 metropolitan cities - making it a dream destination for people looking to live car-free.

Over the past decade, Brickell 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.
