Earlier this year, the City of Miami inaugurated a free trolley service for the Health and Stadium district and they’ve recently expanded the service to Downtown and Brickell! Similar to the modern, free Coral Gables Trolley (popular since 2003) the new Miami Trolley will help make our town more pedestrian and environmentally friendly.
The Miami Trolley operates from 6:30 AM – 11:00 PM Monday through Saturday and only during special events on Sundays 11:30 AM – 6:00 PM.
As a Real Estate Agent very familiar with Downtown/Brickell area, I am happy to see the expansion of the trolley and know that it will be very beneficial to residents in the area! For additional information about condos in the Brickell area, please see below:
By the end of 2012, 5.25 miles of the Miami River walk will be completed. Or, at least, that is the plan. The plans call for a total of 10 miles of walking paths, benches and landscaped green belts along both sides of the Miami River. Currently, there is a gallery walk along the river hosted by Nina Torres Fine Art.
The Miami River walk is planned to be linked to the Brickell Trolley (free) and the Miami River water taxi (possibly).
As a Realtor, I find the development of the Miami River area exciting. I see enormous public interest in developments along the river such as Wind, Mint, the Ivy, Neo Vertika, Latitude, Brickell on the River, Icon etc. and it makes me envision a vibrant downtown with internationally influenced architecture, culture and year round warm temperatures.
One bedroom condos in this area are available starting in the upper 100s whereas in 2008 the prices for a one bedroom were in the low 100s.
