Brickell City Centre Transformation Photos From 8th St. Metromover

Construction on Brickell City Centre is continuing to move rapidly and the changes are readly apparent when you stand at the 8th St. Metromover.

What was an almost 180 view of Brickell is now slowly blocked by the construction of Swire Properties Hotel East and Wellness center. 

Brickell City Centre is changing the landscape of Brickell and it's been amazing to watch the transformation unfold.

Construction of the first phase is expected to be completed at the end of 2015.

Below are photos of the construction progress.
