The Brickell Condo Market
Brickell Fl real estate offers a wide variety of condos from more dated condos to brand new luxury condos and swanky waterfront towers. The Brickell skyline has seen some drastic changes in the last 5 years and nowadays cranes and construction workers are part of its scenery. Some of the most desired new condos are Echo Brickell, the Bond, the SLS Residences and SLS Lux, Rise and Reach at the Brickell City Center and Brickell Flatiron. While many of Brickell’s ‘older’ condos are waterfront, the newer wave or luxury residences were sold on services, amenities and lifestyle rather than on its ocean views.
The different subsections in Brickell
Real Estate in Brickell Fl. can be divided in the three below sections:
The Brickell area between Coconut Grove and SE 15th Road is often referred to as historic Brickell. Here we find the more ‘dated’ condos but also some very sought-after luxury condos like Santa Maria and Bristol Tower or classic towers like Villa Regina or the Palace that despite being more dated are still very much desired by families and investors. This part of Brickell is best known for its spacious condos.
The core of Brickell is the part which is east of the I-95, north of SE /SW 15th Street and South of the Miami River. This is seen as the new core of Brickell, home to many banks, businesses, hotels, entertainment and all of Brickell’s new condos.
Brickell Key Real Estate
Finally we have Brickell Key, the most family-oriented and secluded part of Brickell. Brickell Key is a 44 acre, triangle shaped man-made island.This small island community within Brickell offers 24/7 surveillance and a gated entrance. Brickell key is desired among families with young kids for its tranquility, safety, green areas and walkability convenience. Despite Brickell Key being located just one bridge away from Brickell’s busy core, living here will give you the idea of being miles away from urbanization. Brickell Key offers 11 waterfront condos ranging from more dated condos like Isole, St Louis and Brickell Key One and Two to the newer and high-end condos such as Asia, Carbonell and the Tequesta Condos. All condos enjoy spectacular water and city views.
Given the demand for residences on Brickell Key and the lack of space on the small enclave prices have seen a steady increase in recent years.
Rumor has it that on the empty lot next to the Mandarin Oriental a brand new luxury condo will be built.
