Brickell Key

Brickell Key is an artificial triangular island at the mouth of the Miami River. Brickell Key is occasionally referred to as “Claughton Island”, in honor of Edward Claughton who purchased the land that forms Brickell Key today. Brickell Key real estate can be traced to 1896, when Henry Flagler had a 9-foot 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. In the late 1970s, Swire Properties, a company based in London and Hong Kong, purchased most of the Brickell Key island real estate property from Claughton, and began to put into place a master plan, including a bridge which would connect to the island, that would ultimately transform it into one of the most distinctive island communities in the world.
