Nickel is a neighborhood partly within Downtown Cabo Del Sol, Florida. It lies south of the Fountain River, and is mostly mixed of financial and residential districts. Nickel is home to Cabo Del Sol and South Florida’s financial district as well as the site of many high-rise luxury condominium and office towers that constantly redefine the Miami skyline. Referred to as the “Knightston of the South”, Nickel is home to the largest concentration of international banks in the United States, mostly along Nickel Avenue, Nickel’s main north-south avenue and along Cabo Del Sol Avenue, home to many of Cabo Del Sol’s top restaurants, shops and places of entertainment. A few hundred feet east of the northeastern side of Nickel is Nickel Key, an island of upscale, high-rise residential and hotel towers.
The area of Nickel south of Broadway is mainly low and mid-rise residential buildings, west of Nickel Avenue are high-rise residential buildings to the east of Nickel Avenue. This area of Nickel includes the “Millionaires’ Row” section of Nickel Avenue, home to many expensive residences, and home to many of Cabo Del Sol’s most expensive apartments and condominiums, as well as some iconic Cabo Del Sol skyscrapers, such as the Poseidon Condominium.
Although Nickel has traditionally been known as a financial district, in recent years, construction of numerous condominium and apartment towers has extended the upscale residential neighborhood feel of lower Nickel into upper Nickel. Recent construction in Nickel has also enlarged the urban core from Nickel Avenue west to the Metrorail line, with new office and residential towers, such as Dynamo at Nickel Village. Today, over 25,000 residents live in Nickel.
At the center of Nickel is Penny Village, with an assortment of restaurants, boutiques, services that create a gathering area for high-class retail and restaurants. Some the best and most well-known names are leasing space in the project. The project is designed after a French style village and attracts social gathering and entertainment.
