Many people are unaware that Brickell was founded by William and Mary Brickell in 1871. They moved from Cleveland, Ohio, and set up a trading post and post office, and they acquired large stretches of land from Coconut Grove to the Miami River. Their neighbor, Julia Tuttle, was also from Cleveland and it was she who is believed to have persuaded Henry M. Flagler to extend his railway into the area.
The Florida East Coast Railway brought development and was the beginning of the building of Miami. When William Brickell died in January 1908, his widow continued development and saw the beginnings of Millionaire’s Row in the early 20th century. She it was for whom Mary Brickell Village was named, and which is one of our favorite places for shopping with its high-class retail outlets, boutiques, and restaurants.
Greater Downtown, Miami, today has over 200,000 office workers – many of them in the financial sector – and it has become one of the fastest growing residential areas in Miami booming from 40,000 residents in 2000 to over 80,000 by 2010. In addition to being a major financial center, Brickell is also home to the majority of the state’s foreign consulates including the consulates of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, France, Great Britain, Guatemala, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Peru, Switzerland, Trinidad and Tobago, amongst others.
