How Safe is Brickell Key?

Brickell Key is an inherently safe neighborhood, since it is a small gated island with only one way in and out. It does not have any boat docks either, eliminating the possibility of anyone entering by boat. Both these factors put together, make this tiny residential neighborhood a very safe haven for families as well as individuals by keeping crime rates to a minimum.

This handful of an island offers maximum privacy, and yet is home to some of the finest places to eat:

  • NAOE is one of the top places for sushi and omakase in not just the neighborhood, but also all of Miami
  • La Mar by Gaston Acurio at the Mandarin Oriental is a high-end pick for posh Peruvian dining
  • Brasserie Brickell Key is where folks choose to go for scrumptious Italian dinners paired with a great selection of wines
  • MO Bar+Lounge is another Mandarin Oriental hotspot frequented by locals and visitors for some laidback cocktails and sipping on martinis

For a wider selection of eats, people generally need to head off the island and next-door into the business district of Brickell or cross the bridge into Downtown.

Shopping options are sparse on this exclusive island, except for the Islander Marketplace, a convenience store and a florist. The marketplace is where you will find the basic groceries to gourmet picks for a wide selection of warm and cold prepared foods.

Why Are Luxury Condo Sales Surging in Downtown Miami as Sales Weaken in Miami Beach?
Opinions and Advice Why Are Luxury Condo Sales Surging in Downtown Miami as Sales Weaken in Miami Beach?
Move over Miami Beach, there’s a new rising star on the block. For long, Miami Beach has been the hot favorite for property seekers in Miami. Whether it’s been about purchasing a permanent residence or getting a second home, South Beach properties have always sold out like hot cakes. On the other hand, Greater Downtown (Edgewater and Brickell included) has mostly been a second-best option to South Beach and Miami Beach, possibly out of necessity, with proximity to work being the biggest motivator for local buyers. But, as we’ve been tracing luxury condo trends over the last couple of years via our quarterly market reports, we noticed a reversal.

Massive Lawsuits Won by Miami Condo Associations Mean Awesome Upgrades for Condo Owners and Residents
Real Estate News Massive Lawsuits Won by Miami Condo Associations Mean Awesome Upgrades for Condo Owners and Residents
Recently, a handful of condo associations have scored massive windfalls thanks to lawsuits leveraged against insurers and developers. This is obviously great news for condo associations, and it also usually means that the associations' finances will likely be great for years to come. This in turn translates into improved living conditions for residents of those buildings, since these windfalls provide opportunities for condo associations to make major repairs and improvements that benefit residents.  Oftentimes, the amount of money they win does not actually need to be spent entirely on the issue that motivated the lawsuit (many times the repairs have already been made by the time the lawsuit is settled). This provides a great opportunity for the condo to either fill their reserves and avoid special assessments on future capital improvements and maintenance projects, or simply spend money doing awesome upgrades on various things.
