Brickell Avenue is the name given to a north-south road, formerly part of U.S. Route 1, in Miami, Florida just south of the Miami River.[2] North of the Brickell Avenue Bridge, U.S. Route 1 is known as Biscayne Boulevard. Brickell Avenue is the main road through the Brickell financial district of Downtown Miami, and is considered a desirable address associated with business and finance. Brickell Avenue is lined with high-rise office buildings and residential condominiums, as well as many banks and restaurants.

It is an off-grid plan main north-south thoroughfare through the south part of Miami's central business district.

Route description

Brickell Avenue toward the Miami River

From the Miami River south it continues south-southwest and upon crossing Broadway/SE 15th Street it curves southwest and continues in that direction until it terminates at Southeast 26th Road/Rickenbacker Causeway, becoming South Federal Highway for a short distance (about 1/4 mile) until it becomes South Dixie Highway - US1. The portion north of the one-way pair of 7th and 8th Streets carries U.S. Route 41.

By the time the railroad arrived in 1896, spurred in part by the Brickells' gift of land to Henry Flagler, the Brickells had already paved a rock road, known as the Coconut Grove Trail, through their property. In 1898, the trail became a 145 foot wide roadway called Brickell Avenue and extended from the Miami River to Broadway (15th Road).
