This Was Downtown Miami & Brickell Key In 1999 - Before & After

The top left photo is what Brickell, Brickell Key and Downtown Miami looked like in 1999. Development has increased during those 17 years and the density is very apparent. The South tip of Brickell Key was covered in trees before the Mandarin Oriental was built in 2000. The Miami Tower was one of the tallest buildings and could be seen for miles away, but is now hidden by surrounding towers.
