In 1943, an investor, Edward N. Claughton, Sr. acquired the islands and eventually purchased additional bay bottom land to combine them to a 44-acre triangle-shaped tract separated from the mansions of Miami’s fashionable Brickell Avenue by only a few hundred feet of water.
In the late 1970’s, Swire Properties purchased most of the island property from the Claughtons, and began to put into place a master plan that would ultimately transform it into one of the most unique island communities in the world
Tequesta Point Three at Brickell Key
Serenity set apart from Downtown Miami by its own gated entry and private island ambiance, the exclusive residential enclave of Tequesta Point on Brickell Key is linked to the city’s abundant cultural and commercial attractions – mere moments away – by a short scenic causeway. Tequesta Point is conceived in every exquisite detail to create a great residential tradition on the bay. Winding up the private drive to Tequesta Point, poised at Brickell Key’s easternmost tip, the lush landscaping and classical proportions of the open plazas evoke a special sense of place – and arrival.
The developer was Swire Group of Hong Kong – London – a global company with over two hundred years history of successful international enterprise. Swire’s vision for a lifestyle friendly unique master plan for Brickell Key surrounds Tequesta Point with many amenities – including shops, restaurants and even commercial office availabilty…all surrounded by an island wrapping waterfront promenades.
Named in honor of the American Indian tribe who settled at the mouth of the Miami River, Tequesta Point was also inspired by international artist Manuel Carbonell’s series of Tequesta Indian sculptures.
