The Roads-Brickell Historic Homes
The Roads is a triangular area located just west of Brickell. Before it was the "The Roads" it was coined "Brickell Hammocks". In 1922, Mary Brickell carved out a pedestrian-friendly residential neighborhood with wide streets, median parkways, and roundabouts with native Miami greenery. The streets of The Roads run diagonal to the rest of Miami. All of the properties were sold in one day, on February 1, 1923. Mary Brickell desinged these homes intending for them to be affordable, but today The Roads is one of Miami's most prestigious neighborhoods. The Roads has that charming small town feel to it when in reality it's just steps from Downtown Miami. You really get the best of both worlds here!
