Known as the “Manhattan of the South,” Brickell is Miami’s Financial District, but is also a highly coveted waterfront neighborhood to work, live and play.

A top-tier financial district and equally enviable residential address, Brickell is Miami’s most urban neighborhood, set on Biscayne Bay, and known as THE place to live, work and play in Miami. In this article, you’ll find everything you need to know about it, from the Brickell condos for sale and rent to its history, cool places, how to get around, and much more useful information that will help you decide to make the move to Brickell.

A Brief History of Brickell

William Brickell and Julia Tuttle co-founded the Brickell Financial District in the mid-1800s, and would later donate land to the Florida East Coast Railway to put the nascent city on the map. After William Brickell’s death, his widow Mary became one of the most prominent real estate developers and managers for the Brickell area, encouraging affluent settlers to move there in the early 20th century. 

Fast forward to the 1970s, and Brickell started booming, with more office towers, condo towers, and hotels dotting the landscape, and positioning the city as a powerful one. Since then, the growth spurt that has taken over this financial district shows no signs of stopping, with a recent development cycle bringing some of the most opulent and exclusive names in hospitality and fashion to the neighborhood.

While luxurious condo towers have replaced most of the waterfront mansions built during the days of William and Mary Brickell, the area retains the spirit of pioneering wealth and business in a beautiful waterfront location.

Living in Brickell

Let’s start with a fun fact: did you know Brickell is the largest international banking hub in the United States and the second-largest financial services center south of New York City? And even though it’s nicknamed the “Manhattan of the South,” this waterfront neighborhood fronting both the Miami River and Biscayne Bay still holds onto its signature Miami fun-in-the-sun vibe, which makes it a pretty unique place. 

Being urban, Brickell is a super walkable neighborhood – you can start your day with a waterfront run or bike ride, get suited up for your workday or power meeting, and then catch a business lunch at one of the many delicious restaurant options close by. If you’ve got an investment meeting, no problem – your Brickell condo is surrounded by numerous international banks. And if you want to shop, you can choose from your favorite luxury brands at Brickell City Centre, anchored by Saks Fifth Avenue, or boutique offerings at Mary Brickell Village. Finally, wind down after work with happy hours at one of the trendy bars, lounges, or cafés and enjoy an equally lively nightlife scene. 

And you won’t be lacking health and wellness options either. From cycling clubs to celebrity trainers, you’ll have top gyms, like Equinox, specialized fitness centers, and yoga studios, all at your doorstep. 

Here you’ll find the complete, world-class live-work-play package. It is no wonder then why many large corporations have settled in the area and numerous international stars, including Shakira, professional athletes, international executives, business people, and young professionals are constantly looking for the best condos in Brickell.

All in all, Brickell offers something for everyone, in an active, urban, and modern neighborhood. Here you’ll see business types out and about just as much as you’ll see families. 

Let’s dive into more specifics about Brickell…

Where Is Brickell, Miami?

Centrally located, Brickell sits just south of Downtown Miami and north of Coconut Grove, nestled between Biscayne Bay to the east and Little Havana and The Roads/Coral Gables to the west. 

It’s about a 15-minute drive to get to the beaches and watersports of Key Biscayne, and about a 30-minute drive to South Beach. And Brickell is 25 minutes from the Miami International Airport (MIA).

Real Estate in Brickell

Brickell’s prestigious landscape features skyscrapers – commercial and residential – sprinkled with a small dose of mid-rises, and low-rises, as well as a few expensive Mary Brickell-era mansions and single-family home streets. 

The area north of SW 15th Road, mostly around Brickell Avenue, is fairly financial while going southward is rather residential with a more nature-heavy landscape. Just over a short bridge is the man-made island of Brickell Key, which is primarily residential with a scenic 1.2-mile waterside walking path, about 11 condo towers, and the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. Soon, it will also be home to the newly announced luxury supertall condo tower, the Mandarin Oriental Residences Miami and a new hotel.

As it is one of Miami’s top neighborhoods to live in, there is a high number of Brickell condos for sale or rent, hotels, mixed-use projects, and luxury apartments under construction or waiting to make their debut. Pricing for Brickell real estate varies widely, with opulent bay-facing penthouses and more reasonably priced condo options sharing the same block. 

The bottom line: There really is no other waterfront, metropolitan area like Brickell, with so much nature and recreation at your fingertips. All of this makes Brickell a top destination on the international map for living and working and for real estate investment opportunities.
