Welcome to Downtown Miami

Brickell is known as the heart of Miami's financial district, and it is rapidly flourishing to encompass much more. Recent billion-dollar residential and commercial real estate developments have categorized Brickell as the booming upscale Southern Wall Street. Framed by lavish towering skyscrapers overlooking the gleaming Biscayne Bay, served by an elevated metro-rail transportation system, and brimming with trendy art galleries and luxury fashion boutiques, Brickell is Miami's hub for innovation, gastronomy, wellness, and style.
The neighborhood's first foundational blocks were laid in the early 20th century by pioneering investors William and Mary Brickell, known today as Miami's virtual founders. The couple fiercely converted swamp-covered land into prime real estate and quickly sold it to wealthy buyers drawn to today's "Millionaire's Row," one of the state's most expensive areas. Brickell is centrally located and provides easy access to the Miami International Airport and the trendy areas of Design District, Wynwood, and South Beach.
The urban playground claims a superb collection of world-renowned luxury hotels, such as the Mandarin Oriental, Four Seasons, SLS, and JW Marriott. It also offers prime leisure attractions, such as the popular Mary Brickell Village, a state-of-the-art retail and lifestyle center spanning two blocks, named after Brickell's founder. The nearby brand-new billion-dollar investment, Brickell City Centre, spans five blocks and offers a mix of luxury retail shops, cutting-edge coworking offices, and entertainment options. Famously chic restaurants such as the brand new trendy Nusr-et steakhouse, intimate Italian Casa Tua Cucina, oceanside Peruvian La Mar, award-winning Japanese Naoe, three-story food hall La Centrale, vegetarian nightclub Crate, and spatially-dynamic Asian fusion Komodo, all ensure that food enthusiasts never run out of fine dining options.
History buffs can enjoy visits to the iconic Freedom Tower, once home to the Miami Daily News, or the Dade Heritage Trust, which was once home to Dr. James Jackson, Miami's first physician. Abounding in affluence, culture, and cutting-edge modernity, Brickell is rightfully dubbed the "Manhattan of the South."
