Brickell Key Miami History

Brickell Key Miami is an artificial triangular island at the mouth of the Miami River in Miami, Florida in Miami's Brickell neighborhood. Brickell Key is occasionally referred to as "Claughton Island", in honor of Edward Claughton who purchased the land that forms Brickell Key today. History The history of Brickell Key real estate can be traced to 1896, when Henry Flagler had a 9-foot (2.7 m) deep channel dug from the mouth of the Miami River. In the process, Mr. Flagler created an off-shore property composed of two small islands.

In 1943, a real estate investor, Edward N. Claughton, Sr. acquired the Brickell Key islands and eventually purchased additional bay bottom land to combine them to a 44-acre (180,000 m2) triangle-shaped tract separated from the mansions of Miami's fashionable Brickell Avenue by only a few hundred feet of water. In the late 1970s, Swire Properties purchased most of the island Brickell Key real estate property from the Claughton, and began to put into place a master plan that would ultimately transform it into one of the most distinctive island condo communities in the world.
