Brickell Key is a man-made island off the mainland Brickell neighborhood of Miami. Also called Claughton Island, the neighborhood is just east of Downtown Miami and the Miami River. Brickell Key offers one of the most unique island communities in the world. It is a small gated island in Downtown Miami. This is a very central location because it is just minutes away from the airport, Coral Gables, South Beach, and Coconut Grove just to name a few. Brickell Key Miami real estate offers amazing views of the bay and has a few shops and restaurants inside the island as well.
