Brickell Key is a private island located at the mouth of the Miami River and is home to more than 2,000 condo units.  Many people don’t know that the history of Brickell Key began more than 100 years ago.

In 1896 Henry Flagler, a key figure in the development of the east coast of Florida had a 9 foot channel dug out at the entrance of the Miami River.  In doing so, he created two small islands.   These islands were purchased in 1943 by Edward Claughton Sr. as well as the bay bottom land in order to combine them into the 44 acre triangular island we know today as “Brickell Key”.  In 1970, Swire Properties purchased most of the land and put into place a master plan which would make it one of most unique island communities in the world.  In 2008, Swire completed Asia Brickell Key which is the newest building on the island.

Today Brickell Key offers its residents the best of Miami living.  Some of the benefits of living on Brickell Key include unobstructed Bay views, a walking path around the island, market place, salon, flower shop plus the amenities of each individual condo building.   The Mandarin Oriental is also located on Brickell Key which gives residents even more  fine dining options and spa services just steps from their residence.
