If you want your investment to last, this is going to need a buried concrete footer pad and a central cantilvered mounting post for the mailbox, plus the brickwork - have never had to do one so can't say for sure, but I would ballpark it as a $700 materials job if hollow (twice that if concrete filled or solid brick, which would make it last longer) and about a days labor for bricklayer and helper - so about $500-600 labor, for total about $1200-2000 - more if fancy bricks.

Remember to check USPS mailbox regulations for exact height it has to be, how far from road edge to front of mailbox, how far it has to stick out beyond the front of the brick, etc - you don't want to sink this kind of money into something and then has the USPS say they will not deliver into it. Also checkk with road department on how far from centerline of road (or curb) it has to be.

Here is an article you might find interesting, including info on prefab brick mailboxes. Note the cost they give is less than I did, but normal brick mailbox post would not be 3x3 feet either - usually more like 12-18" square, which would be cheaper.
