Innovative Beginnings in Brickell

Brickell was first settled in the mid-1800s by early pioneers. William Brickell and his wife Mary joined Julia Tuttle as co-founders of Miami, opening a trading post and post office on the south bank of the Miami River. Turning into two of Miami’s most prestigious real estate developers, William and Mary saw a unique potential for this once uninhabited land to become a necklace of opportunity.
In the early 1900s, Brickell expanded into “Millionaire’s Row” with the help of Mary Brickell who developed luxury estates on Brickell Avenue. By the 1970s, these exceptional mansions were replaced with hotels, banks, restaurants, and condominiums, transforming the neighborhood into a powerful capital for international trade, finance, and investment. Brickell is now one of Miami’s most rapidly growing and dense neighborhoods.
