Brickell is a high-end neighborhood and a major financial district located in Miami, Florida. Located just 10 to 20 minutes from all the most important areas like Miami Beach, Coral Gables, Downtown Miami and the Miami International Airport, the Brickell neighborhood is considered by many one of the best areas to live in. It is a small neighborhood with only 1.19 square miles (3 square kilometers) but don’t let that fool you, it is also the most dense in terms of population since it is comprised of hundreds of skyscrapers and high-rise buildings.

Brickell is just about 8 miles (12 kms) to South Beach. There are no beaches in Brickell but South Beach is only a short 15 to 20 minutes drive depending on traffic. There is no train yet connecting Brickell to South Beach but you can certainly take the bus! Another option for the beach enthusiasts is Key Biscayne, also located about 8 miles from Brickell and the same driving time. Many Brickell residents prefer biking to Key Biscayne and enjoy the protected Florida State parks on the way to the beach.

How is the weather in Brickell?

Resting along the ocean line, Brickell enjoys warm weather all year long, much like the rest of Miami.The weather all year round is comfortable, so don’t worry that you’ll have to stop your plans because of a snowstorm or something of sorts. Winter months, like January, will go as low as 59ºF, which is just the perfect temperature to wear that knit sweater or those knee-high boots you keep in your closet the rest of the year. When in summer, it’s Miami in full-swing, with vivid and strong sunshine, rain, wind and temperatures that tend to rise above 90ºF.

And yes, we all know that Florida gets hit by hurricanes, but don’t let this stop you: Brickell area is full of modern buildings and skyscrapers built compliant to South Florida’s Building Code. This means that they’re designed to withstand wind speeds of 120mph and faster, typical of the most threatening hurricanes.

What to do in Brickell Miami?

There’s plenty of things to do in Brickell that’ll keep your body and soul satisfied, daily and nightly. Like in any major city, there is an area where most of the action is and that is Brickell to Miami. Brickell City Centre, for example, is a super chick entertainment centre that offers high-end fashion and accessories shops, restaurants, bars and even its own cinema. The best part? It’s walking distance from residential buildings like Rise Brickell City Centre and Reach Brickell City Centre.

If you’d prefer to keep in touch with nature, Brickell’s also got a handful of parks where you can go for a run and breathe some fresh air, while still being close to your office or home. Simpson Park, the region’s largest green area, takes care of some endangered plant species. It’s a really refreshing view amidst all the building that are around it, Brickell View West and Le Parc at Brickell, to name some.

And also, let’s not forget what Brickell’s main trait is: being a financial area. This means economic activity it’s pretty strong and thriving. It’s the dream neighborhood if you want to live near your office and, because of Miami’s touristic nature, still be able to enjoy an entertaining atmosphere with lots of fun things to do.

Why is Brickell Miami so popular?

Think of Brickell as a mini Manhattan, with all the diversity, commerce, growth and plus a much nicer weather. Brickell is also a great place of culture, being in the vicinity of Pérez Art Museum Miami and the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science. The Adrianne Arsht Center, where you can enjoy Broadway musicals and the American Airlines Arena are also in close proximity to enjoy sports and famous singers concerts.

In short, Brickell has everything you’d wish for in a city: a new, modern infrastructure, a growing, multicultural young population (but also with traditional families in the outskirts!), it’s own efficient public transportation system that takes you to the city’s most important spots: the metromover (and it’s free!). And, of course, let’s not forget that it’s still Miami, so all the beach-fun it’s in the air.

Brickell History

Brickell is a fairly new area, and it’s not always been the way it is now. Back in 1871, William and Mary Brickell settled in the area and established their home and a trading post. Yes, that’s where the neighborhood got its name from. Thanks to the Miami River and Henry Flagler’s railroad, the area developed quickly, and real estate held great value, much like the present day. Brickell started to become a place for rich people to settle and buy properties, which served as the ground for its current financial area state, however, its properties were mostly used as escape-from-the-cold homes for people from the north of the US.

It wasn’t until the 1980’s that Brickell started to really get urbanized. One of the first ever luxury condo buildings to be built was the iconic Atlantis. Now the area is full with other amazing towers like Bristol Tower or the Santa María.

Since then, Brickell has done nothing but grow and expand. It’s now full of skyscrapers that are either hotels, residential towers, or office buildings. It is certainly a blooming area who’s yet to see its better days to come!

What is Brickell Key?

Brickell Key it’s an artificial island that’s as small as 0.162 square miles yet still serves as home for more than 2,000 people. Think of it as an exclusive gated community of condo buildings like Asia Brickell Key or Carbonell Condo. Brickell Key even got its own park and a walking path around the island! Though it’s mostly a residential island, a handful of restaurants, bars and stores are located here, too, as well as private schools. The famous Mandarin Oriental Hotel has its house in Brickell Key.

Brickell Schools

Though the place is packed with young professionals, this does not mean there aren’t any options for families with young children or for students. Brickell area has one public elementary school: Southside Elementary, and three private: First Presbyterian International Christian School, Gordon Day School, and Prima Casa Montessori School. As for colleges, Florida’s International University’s downtown campus is located here. Miami’s main library is also a few minutes away, so knowledge will never be far if you choose to move to Brickell.

Services in Brickell Miami

Certainly, Brickell’s top service (or at least the most striking one) it’s the metromover, which is free of cost and can get you quickly and safely through the neighborhood and Downtown Miami. It conveniently stops every few blocks so you can drop off wherever you want and you’ll probably be a few walking distance from your final destination. Aside from the metromover, the metrorail and the public bus system are both pretty user-friendly options to move around the city. The metrorail even has a straight line to the airport!

As for hospitals,  the world-known Jackson Memorial Hospital and University of Miami School of Medicine, is only 4 stops in the train or 10 minutes driving. The Mercy Hospital in Coconut Grove is also a few minutes from Brickell. Both are very complete health centres that will attend to your medical needs.

Cost of living, is Brickell expensive?

A lifestyle with so much to offer like the one in the ever-developing, multicultural Brickell has also a tantamount to ask for. You do not have to be a super billionaire to live in Brickell, but if you’re on a tight budget you might also want to consider other more economic options. According to niche.com, the average rent price for living in Brickell is $2,103. As for buying, you can get relatively cheap condos for under 300k in Four Ambassadors Towers, and also extremely luxurious penthouses with prices over $4,000,000 at the Four Seasons Residences.

Certainly, housing it’s the most expensive part of living in Brickell. Everything else it’s around the standard of the area. The average house income in Brickell is about $79,174.

Lifestyle in Brickell

The vast majority of current Brickell residents are professionals ranging from 30 to 50 years old who enjoy leisure activities, an active urban lifestyle and the refreshing breeze of the ocean. You might want to think of Brickell life as a never-ending ad for a city SUV: people having fun and being successful. Brickell is also a very safe neighborhood with lower crime rates than the average.

Brickell Population

It’s hard to pinpoint the exact amount of people that live in Brickell. The last official census counted 31,000 people in 2010, and it’s pretty safe to assume that number has only grown since then.

Forbes referred to Brickell as “Miami’s fastest-growing neighborhood”. They summarized its growth in a few words:

“ In the middle of one of the world’s fastest-growing, most dynamic urban meccas exists one of the country’s most swiftly emerging neighborhoods. The city is Miami, and the neighborhood Brickell, a thriving district located in the city’s core, between Coral Gables and Miami Beach.”
