The Brickell district of Miami has changed significantly since the 1980s when it was comprised mostly of financial buildings and low rise apartment buildings.
In the early 2000s, condos started popping up in the area and along Brickell Avenue. The recession hit in 2008 and building came to a halt in Miami. It wasn't until 2012 when Brickell City Centre started construction that the market picked up and more condos were added to the growing Miami skyline. In 2012, there were many empty lots scattered around Brickell. Those lots are now filled with condos such as Brickell City Centre, Brickell Heights, SLS Lux, SLS Brickell, My Brickell, 1100 Millecento, Bond at Brickell, Panorama Tower, 1010 Brickell, Brickell Flatiron and Solitair Brickell.
Not only is Brickell experiencing a change, but also West Brickell, which is located West of the Metrorail tracks.
