Flagler First, is the most notable and expansive in the area. It involves the restoration for the historic First National Bank...Flagler Street and N.E. 1st street and 1st Ave has good examples of vintage or restored urbanism.

 

One of downtown Miami’s earliest buildings, this Greek temple-style structure built of gold-colored brick, unusual material for Miami, was accented with classic columns capped by corinthian capitals.

 

Flagler First has been carefully renovated to provide distinctive condominium homes. While sharing the site of the original First National Bank of Miami, it reflects the original splendor of a unique period in Florida history — the land boom of the 1920s.

 

After restoring this building to its original historic grandeur, residents of Flagler First will occupy one of Miami’s most beautiful landmarks, at the center of a city buzzing with vitality.
