We attribute this to the building’s superior location on Brickell Avenue, exceptional design and construction quality, strong ownership, and its tenant roster, which continues to draw premium firms from around the world.”
1450 Brickell’s setting in Miami’s Brickell Entrance neighborhood means tenants are within walking distance of more than 30 retail businesses, numerous restaurants, residential towers and high-end hotels, as well as Miami’s Metro Mover, which provides transportation throughout Downtown Miami. Tenants are also drawn to the building’s location away from the Miami River, affording them and their visitors the conveniences of the Brickell Financial District without the traffic headaches spawned by the bridges spanning the River.

The building is fabricated with above code large-missile impact glass from top-to-bottom, making its exterior curtain wall window system one of the nation’s strongest. The tower also sports an above code backup generator that can power tenants’ basic electrical needs during outages and offers tenants a sound technology infrastructure including FPL Fibernet which allows for connection to the NAP of the Americas.
Designed by Miami-based architecture firm NBWW & Associates and constructed by Coastal Construction, 1450 Brickell offers panoramic views of Biscayne Bay, Brickell Avenue, and the city of Miami. Floor-to-ceiling windows and wide-open floor plates range in size from 24,000 square-feet to 25,600 square-feet, maximizing the flow of natural light throughout tenant areas.
