— All About Brickell Key in Miami

Brickell Key, mainland Brickell’s small sister island, is an upscale, gated community known for its luxurious high-rises and breathtaking water views. It’s where resort-style living meets urban sophistication, only to be elevated by lush greenery and spectacular views at every turn.

Connected via a short, singular bridge, Brickell Key is a private, triangular island located just steps away from mainland Brickell. Complete with an office building, a gourmet marketplace, fine restaurants, a luxury hotel in the Mandarin Oriental, up-and-coming retail, waterfront promenades, residents have little reason to leave the island.

— Top Condo Buildings on Brickell Key

Here’s a peek into some of the condo high-rises mentioned in the video tour above:

  • Residences at the Mandarin Oriental, Miami at One Island DriveThe first, and probably final, luxury condo development to come up in Brickell Key after a 15-year hiatus, One Island Drive will carry two world-class properties. Home to the 800-foot condo called Residences at Mandarin Oriental and the 400-foot condo-hotel named the North American Mandarin Oriental, this spectacular two-piece project will span 5 acres with one-of-a-kind sky homes. Designed by New York-based Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, the residential supertall will feature 220 generously sized condos.

  • CarbonellPositioned to afford unmatched bay, river, and city views, this prestigious condo tower features no more than nine residences per floor. Residents are treated to stellar amenities such as a waterfront pool with tropical landscaping, a dual-level fitness center, a residents’ club room, plus tennis, squash, and racquetball courts. The 39-story tower is easily distinguishable as it features an iconic bronze sculpture by Manuel Carbonell at its entrance.
  • CourtsAnother popular condo tower on the island, Courts Brickell Key is a classic building located right behind the Carbonell. All residences feature expansive balconies that open up to direct bay and city views. Residents enjoy access to a bayfront pool and spa, a children’s playroom, a fitness center, plus separate squash and racquetball courts.
  • Icon BrickellThis three-tower “iconic” development by the Related Group stands true to its name. Masterfully designed from the inside out by French starchitect Philippe Starck, together, the three towers feature more than 1800 remarkable residences. With two acres of patio deck, residents as well as guests of the W Miami condo-hotel gain access to a 300-foot swimming pool and a 40,000-square-foot health club & spa among other spectacular amenities.
  • Continuum Towers This legendary pair of towers in South Beach stands out on the horizon. Occupying a prime slice of oceanfront land in the Sout of Fifth neighborhood, these modern condo towers afford the most exquisite water views in all of Miami Beach. The list of available amenities includes two heated lagoon pools, three tennis courts, a four-story health club and spa, an open-air restaurant, 12 acres of manicured grounds, and more.
  • Aston Martin ResidencesOn the verge of completion, the Aston Martin Residences is yet another easily distinguishable condo tower given its unique sail-like silhouette. Designed by BMA and Revuelta Architecture, the 66-story tower features signature Aston Martin touches throughout, including a carbon fiber welcome desk, doors with custom-designed handles, number plinths, leather door tabs, and a color palette evocative of 007-like opulence. Besides probably the only virtually accessible art gallery in a condo tower in Miami, the riverfront skyscraper also features a rooftop helipad, a super yacht marina, a full-service spa, an infinity edge pool, a meditation room, virtual golf, a beauty salon, a teen center, a kids’ playroom, a business center, and much more

Opinions and Advice New Emotional Support Animal (ESA) Law Florida: Complete Condo Guide
Finding and moving to a new home can be a strenuous experience, even when you like the change you’re making. This is more so when you have an emotional condition or disability and part of your treatment involves having an Emotional Support Animal (ESA). In this case, finding a new home comes with a whole new set of challenges only you and your furry friend can know. And no one needs the added fear and stress of possibly being denied housing or being discriminated against for owning an ESA. Thankfully, a new Florida law on emotional support animals that went into effect July 1, 2020, explicitly states what you and your current/prospective landlord or HOA can and cannot do regarding Emotional Service Animals. The law applies to all condos, apartments, and rental homes. Last updated on March 27, 2024.
