By January 1922, Mary Brickell began development on an area known as „The Roads” and eventually the Brickell family owned all of the coastal land between the Miami River and Coconut Grove. The area became so prestigious that it was soon one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in Miami. Today the mansions that characterized the Brickell area in the past have given way to office buildings, luxury hotels and condominiums. However, one thing has remained the same throughout, which is Mary Brickell‟s vision of the area being the center of commerce for Greater Miami. International firms such as Deloitte, Citibank, Banco Santander, Miami Today, Greenberg-Traurig, Chase, and many more. In addition, Brickell has the 2nd largest cluster of embassies and consulates in the county, behind Coral Gables. Brickell is Miami‟s Madison Avenue and Wall Street all roll into one.
