Brickell Neighborhood – Where urban living meets natural lifeNovember 28, 2022
The mere mention of the city of Miami evokes images of inviting crystalline beaches and towering, majestic palm trees yet the urban landscape with its glittering skyscrapers over Biscayne Bay is just as impressive and visually stimulating.
Most specifically, Brickell Neighborhood has seen a development boom in the past few years which has meant quite a few things for Miami’s financial district. Mainly, Brickell has become the hub of world-class restaurants, Miami’s tallest high-rises, art and cultural venues, the headquarters of the nation’s top law firms as well as international financial institutions and first-class entertainment. In this dynamic neighborhood is where you will find The Residences at 1428 Brickell.
As with most urban environments, Brickell streets are well lit and filled with pedestrians walking at all hours of the day or using scooters and visitors getting around using CitiBikes. There is accessible public transportation nearby in the form of a Metromover (a free elevated, air-conditioned train a/k/a people mover) at Brickell station.
The free automated people mover is a transportation system operated by Miami-Dade Transit in Miami. It runs through Downtown Miami, Brickell, Park West and Arts and Entertainment District neighborhoods. It winds through Brickell where the Brickell City Centre and Mary Brickell Village malls offer designer shops, countless stores, numerous fine restaurants, and fun entertainment venues. Brickell City Centre is particularly noteworthy in that it is an indoor-outdoor mall with unique architecture which offers its patrons protection from the elements.
But Brickell does not consist of buildings exclusively. The Simpson Park, a rare nature preserve situated right on the edge of Brickell’s financial district, is a compact tropical hardwood hammock providing a much-welcomed respite from the urban setting with its walking paths and bike trails. The park protects an old-growth forest with a dense tangle of native and exotic trees. Visitors explore this natural oasis by meandering along the pathways or simply relax on a park bench beneath the cool, shady canopy of live oaks, strangler figs, Jamaica dogwoods, silver palms and gumbo limbo trees. Simpson Park’s nearly eight acres will make you totally forget that there is an actual concrete city beyond its perimeter.
Brickell Neighborhood and adjacent Downtown neighborhood offer a delectable array of fine dining options for lunch and dinner. Some of the most notable culinary establishments include Area 31 on the 16th floor of the Kimpton EPIC Hotel, located on the edge of Brickell neighborhood serving Mediterranean cuisine in a hip, hot spot on the Biscayne Bay and Cipriani, located on the south side of the Miami river in Downtown northern Financial District offering panoramic views of Biscayne Bay and a chic nautical aesthetic inspired by the waterfront setting. Riverside Miami, a sprawling waterfront venue is also very popular due to its offerings of several restaurants and various bars.
Brickell Neighborhood is perfect for anyone who loves the intersection of urban living and natural environments and is sure to satisfy your needs for accessible transportation, culinary cravings, and visual aesthetics, both natural and manmade.
