Brickell Key offers breathtaking bay and city skyline views in every direction on one of the most distinctive island communities in the world. Located just east of the Brickell Financial District, the private gated island - now home to more than 2,800 people - has a colorful history.
In 1896, Henry Flagler dug a 9-foot deep channel at the mouth of the Miami River to build the first seaport in Miami. In the process, he created the first of two small islands known by many names, including Burlingame Islands and Claughton Island, before becoming Brickell Key. Further dredging of limestone and silt from the river and bay expanded the spoil islands until 1965, when the children of Edward N. Claughton, Sr. added to and combined them into the 44-acre triangle-shaped tract we recognize today. But it wasn’t until the 1970’s that Claughton Island began development with a joint venture to build a bridge from Brickell at Eighth Street to the island. Then in 1979, Swire Properties acquired a controlling interest, renamed it “Brickell Key on Claughton Island”, and began building the island’s eleven luxury high-rise condominiums, a luxury hotel, two office buildings, retail space and a 3.5 acre public park.
Brickell Key offers the walkability and relaxing lifestyle of an island community while still providing a convenient central location minutes from Downtown Miami, the Design District, Wynwood, and Coconut Grove. Transportation hubs, including the Miami MetroRail, Virgin Trains, Tri-Rail and the Miami International Airport, are all easily accessible as well.
