Brickell is a neighborhood of Downtown Miami, Florida. It lies south of the Miami River, extending south to SE 26th Road (the Rickenbacker Causeway). Brickell is split into two subdivisions by Broadway, Upper Brickell and Lower Brickell.

Upper Brickell is home to Miami and Miami-Dade County's financial district as well as the site of many new high-rise luxury condominium developments and office towers that constantly redefine the Miami skyline. Referred to as the "Manhattan of Miami", Upper Brickell is home to the largest concentration of international banks in the United States, mostly along Brickell Avenue, Brickell's main north-south avenue and Miami Avenue. Although Upper Brickell has traditionally been known as the financial district, in recent years construction of many condominium and apartment towers has led Upper Brickell to also become an upscale-residential neighborhood. A few hundred feet east of Upper Brickell is Brickell Key, an island of high-rise condominium towers.

Lower Brickell is south of Broadway and is mainly low and mid-rise residential west of Brickell Avenue and high-rise residential to the east of Brickell Avenue. Lower Brickell includes the "Millionaires' Row" section of Brickell Avenue, home to many expensive residences.

There are plenty of fine restaurants in Brickell with the best menus by outstanding chefs. Brickell is also relatively close to the Miami International Airport as well as it is centrally located in the city of Miami. Beneath the towering architectural masterpieces that rise along the eastern edge of Brickell you will find quiet, shaded streets that offer a charm and relaxed atmosphere that is unheard of among major metropolitan areas. And accompanying the resurgence of this diverse neighborhood is a substantial growth in the amenities available to its residents. Nowhere is this more notable than in the area of dining and entertainment. Whether you're looking for a sandwich at a sidewalk cafe or a sumptuous gourmet meal, you'll find something to satisfy your palate on the streets of Brickell.
