TBT - The Progression Of Brickell City Centre In Photos

TBT (February 17, 2015) - The photos below show the progression of Brickell City Centre and the Brickell area starting in 2012 until 2015. Brickell City Centre was eventually completed by the end of 2016, changing the Brickell skyline.

Over the course of three years, the landscape of Brickell has changed dramatically with the rise of Brickell City Centre by Swire Properties. On what was once mostly vacant land now sits three tall towers over three city blocks - with more growth on the way.
