Brickell (/ˈbrɪkəl/ brik-əl) is an urban neighborhood of Greater Downtown Miami, Florida, United States. Directly south of thehistoric CBD, Brickell is Miami and South Florida‘s major financial district.
Brickell was settled in the modern era in the mid-1800s by early pioneers, growing to become Miami’s “Millionaire’s Row” in the early 1900s after the construction of lavish mansions along Brickell Avenue by Mary Brickell. By the 1970s, office towers, hotels and apartments began replacing the historic mansions. Today, Brickell has grown to overtake the city’s historic central business district to the north, as one of the largest financial districts in the United States. With a fast-growing residential population, Brickell is one of Miami’s fastest-growing as well as its most dense neighborhood, with a 2010 population of about 31,000.
Brickell has a large concentration of wealthy Argentine, Colombian, Cuban, Nicaraguan and Venezuelan residents. Many work in the neighborhood’s financial and trade sectors, or live in Brickell part-time.
West Brickell is a sub-neighborhood of Brickell, west of the Metrorail line (SW 1st Avenue), and east of I-95, south of the Miami River, and north of SE 15th Road (Broadway). It is primarily a residential neighborhood, made up mostly of low to mid-rise apartment buildings. In the 2010s Miami condominium boom that began in 2012, interest in Brickell spilled over into West Brickell, with mid century and prewar buildings being replaced by larger buildings. However, they included affordable housing and were generally non-luxury.
South Brickell is a sub-neighborhood of Brickell, south of SE 15th Road (Broadway) to the Rickenbacker Causeway, east of I-95, west of Biscayne Bay. It is primarily a residential neighborhood with single-family homes from the early-1900s along South Miami Avenue and high-rise residential towers along the east side of Brickell Avenue.
Brickell was often referred to as the “Brickell Financial District”, or just “Financial District”, during the time of large scale commercial office development, including major banks building headquarters there. The “financial district” area is what today comprises the core of Brickell, which has become overtaken by high rise residential buildings, and is hence referred to as simply “Brickell”.
