Brickell Today In 2014

Brickell has changed dramatically since the photo in the top left was taken in 1967. What was once a barren area filled with small houses and low rise apartment buildings has changed into a growing metropolis with many high rises. 

The building on 1000 Brickell remains today, but was once one of the tallest buildings in Brickell and is now dwarfed by the buildings surrounding it. Brickell Key was still just an overgrown island that would not see development until the 1970's and the Four Ambassadors building was just opened.
