It was in the 1800s that one of the founders of Miami built sumptuous residences along what became known as Brickell Avenue..
Office towers, hotels and apartments are beginning to replace historic homes.
Today, Brickell extends north to Downtown, Miami’s historic district, and is one of the largest financial districts in the United States.
The rapid growth of its residential population gives the Brickell neighborhood one of the strongest growths and densities in Miami. It has about 56,000 inhabitants in 2016.
Brickell has a high concentration of wealthy residents of Argentina, Colombia, Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela. Many work in the financial and commercial sectors of the neighborhood, or live part-time there.
The Brickell neighborhood, next to downtown is very pleasant to live with, including Mary Brickell Village, a pretty luxurious pedestrian mall. Mostly made up of chic buildings, it brings together a population of young dynamic executives, who appreciate the calm and a certain comfort of life. It is also a very dense neighborhood of offices of companies in the services sector and thus of employees, executives and managers who go with it.
