Brickell Key

Homes For Sale


Brickell Key, which is located just off of the Brickell neighborhood, is actually a man-made island. Located East of Downtown Miami, this island also goes by the name Claughton Island.

The Neighborhood

This triangular island located right off the Northern part of Brickell can be reached via Brickell Key Drive.

The island first came to be in 1896 due to the digging of a 9-foot deep channel at the mouth of the Miami River, which resulted in the creation of two small islands.

The name Claughton Island comes from the name of the real estate investor, Edward N. Claughton Sr., who purchased these two islands. He then combined them into this manmade triangular piece of land that is now a spectacular gated island.

Brickell Key is the ideal choice for people who are looking for a tranquil, scenic, and upscale residential area to move to. Surrounded by water, and with lush greenery as well as walking paths, this is the perfect place for those who want to retire to a peaceful and exclusive haven.

This is also a neighborhood that caters to the needs of those who want close proximity to the financial hub of Miami but want to be separate from it when they are at home.
