Brickell, located in the heart of Miami, is a vibrant, fast-growing city that is home to some of the most sought-after businesses, financial centers, and attractions in the nation. Established in the late 1800s by William and Mary Brickell, who obtained 1,500 acres of "Miami miracle land" in exchange for trading four mules and a wagon to a local Seminole leader, the area has grown from its small farming origins to become one of the liveliest and most diverse parts of the city.
Sitting at the mouth of the Miami River, the epicenter of Brickell is Brickell Avenue business district, where one can find numerous high-rise offices, residential towers, and luxury hotels. The area also offers a variety of other attractions, shopping centers and outdoor activities.

Residents enjoy walking around the island car-free path, the green spaces and sandpit play is available for the youngsters.
