West Brickell is a predominantly residential neighborhood in Downtown Miami. The neighborhood enjoys direct access to transits, a handful of dining places, and several interesting cultural spots.

The Neighborhood

Located 0.5 miles west of the Biscayne Bay, West Brickell covers the area east of I-95 and west of Brickell Avenue. It has a population of around 70,000.

West Brickell is regarded as some real estate experts as a “sleeping giant”.

It has been making headlines recently due to a number of exciting developments in the area. Big developers have invested in several parcels of land between Brickell Avenue and I-95 (the Interstate).

Further developments are expected to transform the area from low-density single-family homes to high-density mixed-use residences.

While Brickell Ave. offers many high rises, West Brickell features mostly low-cost mid-rise apartments.

However, it is considered the city’s newest boom area, with many developers acquiring old duplex and four-plex buildings with a vision of turning them into high-rises in the coming years.

Projects that are currently under construction include the Brickell View Terrace, Le Parc at Brickell, Homewood Suites Hotel, Broadstone Brickell Lofts, Brickell Ten, and City Crossings. New projects that are being proposed include the La Chanson Brickell and a futuristic Walgreens.

Another major mixed-use development in the area is Miami River, which features 1,678 residential units. The project will stand on vacant land between Southwest Second Avenue and I-95, on the river, and feature hotel rooms, commercial spaces, as well as office space.

Things To Do

The West Brickell neighborhood in greater downtown Miami is considered a trendy hotspot. The neighborhood is extremely walkable, making it a perfect residence for many seniors. It also has direct access to transit as well as a variety of shops, cafes, restaurants, museums, and parks. Residents enjoy many sponsored activities that allow them to develop new hobbies while getting to know their neighbors.

The very popular American Airlines Arena can be reached in just 6 minutes (by car). Home to the Miami Heat professional basketball team, the Arena is a favorite venue of musical acts and special events such as concerts by Beyoncé, Britney Spears, and Lady Gaga.

The open-air Bayside Marketplace and Marina shopping mall – with its parrots that area ready to take pictures with anyone – is also a big hit with tourists. The Vizcaya Museum & Gardens is within walking distance. It features a charming European-style villa with Mediterranean, Italian, and Baroque decor mixed with unique Miami feel.

The exciting shops of Bal Harbour are only half an hour away (if traveling by car). The neighborhood is roughly only 15 minutes away by car from Miami Airport (40 minutes if using public transport). Miami Beach and South Beach will both take roughly the same amount of time.
