Best New Condos to Live in Brickell
It seems everywhere you look these days, a new residential building is going up in South Florida. Miami is at the front of this development boom, with new condos being built in each of its neighborhoods. This trend began during the early days of the pandemic when people started flocking from high-tax states like New York and California in search of a place to live and work in an idyllic setting. In Miami alone, more than 52 new condos were announced last year in response to the recent wave of out-of-state residents.
One Miami neighborhood that’s quickly growing is Brickell. This area is known for its walkability, sky-high towers, scenic views, and location near sought-after spots such as Brickell City Centre and an array of drool-worthy restaurants.
