Fisher Island Condo Map

Fisher Island is located three miles offshore from the city of Miami and is accessible only by boat or ferry. Originally created in 1905 as a byproduct of dredging and a land reclamation project around Miami Beach, it  has a total area of 0.343 square miles (0.888 km²). The island was named after automotive parts pioneer and developer Carl G. Fisher, who once owned it, and later occupied as a one family home by the Vanderbilt family, who owned railroad and shipping empires. It was sold for development in the 1960′s, but it wasn’t until the late 80′s that it gained international prominence when a consortium of European and American investors bought the development rights from the Fisher family and turned the island into a world-class private island resort community attracting celebrities such as André Agassi, Oprah Winfrey, Mel Brooks and Boris Becker. Today Fisher Island has super luxurious waterfront residences, all constructed to resemble the 1920-era spanish style mansions that once resided there. It is still as exclusive today as it once was, and according to the 2000 US census, has the highest per capita income ($236,238) of any place in the United States. The island contains 7 mansions, a private school, a championship seaside golf course (P. B. Dye designed), a hotel, spa and fitness center, an observatory (The Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science of the University of Miami), a private marina, several apartment buildings, 24 condominium buildings, and three yet undeveloped parcels of land. The original Vanderbilt Mansion has been restored and renovated and is used primarily as a social club but is open to the public as is the Fisher Island Hotel and Resort. The ferry leaves every 15 minutes from Terminal Island off of MacArthur Causeway 24/7 and is an easy 10 minute ride past the port of Miami. Ultra exclusivity, five star amenities; this island is for those who demand nothing but the best and want their privacy.
