Brickell has recently grown to be the the heart and center of Miami. The mainland city is the financial, commercial, and residential district that is sometimes characterized as “the Manhattan of the South”. The catalyst in the urbanization of Miami was the introduction of Brickell City Centre, the $1.05 billion mixed-use development that is home to luxury shopping, exclusive restaurants, two residential towers, a hotel, and two office towers, which neighbors Mary Brickell Village. Latin Americans and corporate business professionals from all over the world who are accustomed to a diverse urban center, city living, and walkability enjoy living in the Brickell area. Brickell is home to high-end cocktail bars and mixology programs (some with rooftop views and invite-only lounges), the finest residential buildings, globally renowned restaurants with celebrity chefs and owners, modern hotels, trendy boutiques, and convenient public transportation. North of Brickell is downtown, south of Brickell is Coconut Grove, east of Brickell is South Beach, and west of Brickell is the culturally rich, Little Havana, making it a very central city in Miami to call home. Overall, Brickell is filled with working professionals, business people, and young families enjoying the overwhelming wave of state-of-the-art, newly built condo buildings, restaurants, and shops.
