Ok, my apartment is on biscayne bay blvd and rent starts at 900 something a month. Each floor you go up, the rent is raised $100. I currently pay $1159 for a 1 bdroom on the 16th floor and they charge me $40 a month extra for a dog. You can find places in Brickell for less then $1200, however, 1) you must do it early because they are the first to go, and 2) rent from a person who owns a condo in a brickell high rise, like someone mentioned before, private landlords do not have set prices and will be more flexible. ALSO some places in Brickell have move-in specials that give you 1 month free. If the rent is 1200 a month and you get 1 month free, then 1200/12 is 100 and your rent would only be $1100. My building is amazing.Most of the internet prices are not as they seem; they might be lower. Call the places and ask what is available. Two bedrooms in Brickell go for $2,000 or so and if you get a roomate, your rent will be $1,000 a month. But it's getting late, you are competing for places with undergrad students, grad students, and med students. They best and cheapest places are the first to go.
