Much has changed in Brickell in only three years. Brickell City Centre was still under construction and months aways from the East Hotel topping out. Nine Mary Brickell Village was also still under construction. Brickell Heights had just started ground breaking on its two towers and is now close to opening. SLS Lux Brickell had not started construction and was still being used as a parking lot. Solitair Brickell was also months away from demolishing the parking ramp and starting construction on SW 8th St.
