Miami’s booming financial district may be a hub for young professionals, but in Brickell, business is anything but “as usual.” Here, futuristic skyscrapers receive as much sunshine and ocean breezes as any resort town, and trendy restaurants line its walkable thoroughfares.
Its laid-back Mary Brickell Village is an oasis of shops and boutiques lined by tree-shaded courtyards. The serenity can make you forget that you’re one block away from Brickell Avenue, the financial capital of Latin America.
Just to the west, the new Brickell City Centre mixed-use development includes a luxury shopping center, two residential towers and the EAST, Miami hotel.
And after day-shopping, Brickell transitions into a dining and nightlife hotspot, with restaurants, cafes and clubs that keep visitors happy and the after-work crowd from going home.
