One can’t help but wonder as to the mindset of William & Mary Brickell, the city’s original power couple, who built a house and trading post in 1871 on what would eventually be referred to as Brickell Point. They used the trading post as a way to befriend the hostile Native Americans who were slaughtering white settlers in the region. The natives would trek from The Everglades and spread blankets on the couple’s lawn to trade hides and fruits for gold, silver and trinkets. Can any dream ever evolve as quickly as the edifices that now dot the district? Only time will tell what the future will usher in.
Bringing new meaning to “must-have,” the pandemic has ushered in a new trend — blinged out face masks, cloth coverings, PPE, shields, neck gaiters, bandanas — whatever you decided to wear, these unexpected fashion accessories can literally save lives.
Brickell City Centre has become a destination in its own regard. Swire Properties has developed a place where the community wants to be, hang out, and enjoy their time with loved ones while shopping at some of the world’s top retailers in a vibrant destination in the heart of Downtown Miami that’s second to none.
