This Was Brickell In 1989 - Before & After

The photo on the top left is what Brickell used to look like in 1989. This was after the construction boom in the 80's where many high rise offices and condos were built including The Palace, Villa Regina and The Imperial. On the far left the Brickell Bayview Center was the only building in the vicinity. The Miami Tower and Southeast Financial Center could be seen clearly. Brickell Key had a few condos, but still mostly undeveloped. The top right photo is Brickell today in 2015. During our latest construction boom, many more condos and offices have been built on Brickell Avenue. The Brickell Bayview Center is no longer visible and is dwarfed by the surrounding buildings.
