Venetian Islands

Venetian Islands 

 One the most beautiful aspects of Miami and Miami Beach, is all the beautiful shades of blue you can always see in the horizon; the water. The city is built on and around the Biscayne Bay and Atlantic Ocean. Traveling to and from Miami Beach, there are several causeways that connect the beach to the mainland. 

The original bridge (called the Collins Bridge) was built by farmer and developer John S. Collins, with financial assistance from automotive parts and racing pioneer, Carl G. Fisher. At the time it was built, it was the longest wooden bridge in the world. It opened on June 12, 1913 providing the first link between the city of Miami and Miami Beach, which was formerly was only accessible by a ferry service. 

Today, The chain of consists of 11 artificial islands, six of which are inhabited, and stretches across Biscayne Bay between downtown Miami and Miami Beach. Some are part of Miami, others part of Miami Beach. They are linked by the Venetian Causeway, a scenic road with 12 bridges erected by developers in the mid-1920s to lure buyers.

The islands are unique; they stretch between Lincoln Road in South Beach and the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Downtown. This centralized location has helped the islands prosper. They proved this as they remained stable during the unstable years of Miami’s real estate market. 

“The Venetian Islands are growing just the way they are supposed to, quietly and with distinction,” said Gary Hennes, a local developer whose newest property, Lincoln Square, is on the easternmost of the Venetians. “There aren’t McMansions on every single piece of land. There are affordable properties on many of the islands.”

Many refer to the Venetian Islands as the best kept secret of Miami. Many families live on the islands year round, and the residents refer to the environment as a "stable "one with a feeling of "neighborhood."

At a price within your means, the opportunity is yours today--not tomorrow.
