Brickell is the primary residential area of downtown Miami, consisting of high-rise condominiums and apartment buildings. Brickell Key, just east of Brickell Avenue on Biscayne Bay, is a gated island of upscale condos and hotels, including the Mandarin Oriental Miami.
Brickell Avenue and Miami Avenue are lined with restaurants and shops catering to one of the fastest growing number of residents in the County. Mary Brickell Village and the new Brickell City Center offer planned mixed-use shopping and dining experiences. Brickell is served by the Miami Metrorail and Metro Mover.
