Allison Island has everything you can ask for in an exclusive North Miami Beach community. Found inside the Indian Creek waterway in the neighborhood of La Groce, the island is divided into North Island and South Island by 63rd Road and consists of beautiful homes and condos, spread in an area of only 8.5 acres. Every home in Allison Island is waterfront and has direct access to Biscayne Bay. Bridges connect the island to North Miami Beach to the east and to the exclusive amenities of La Groce to the west. The island was built in 1912 by developer Carl Fisher in honor of his partner, Jim Allison. Allison Island’s development started in 1926 when Fisher and Allison built Allison Hospital to serve the residents of Miami Beach. In 1927, the Sisters of St. Francis was contracted to run the hospital, and when Allison died in 1928, the sisters purchased the hospital and renamed it St. Francis Hospital. In 1992, the hospital was demolished, and the property was sold to developer Craig Robbins, who built the neighborhood of Aqua on this location.
A 24-hour guard-gated community, Allison Island provides utmost privacy and security, as well as some of the most stunning views in North Miami Beach. It puts you close to the finest shopping, dining, and entertainment destinations in Miami Beach. Bal Harbour and its luxury shops, restaurants, and resorts are within walking distance, while South Beach, with its historic Art Deco architecture and glittering nightlife, is only a 15-minute drive. The exclusive La Gorce Country Club and the beautiful Indian Creek Park are both less than a mile away.
Designed for walkability, Allison Island features waterside promenades and walkways where you can take leisurely strolls to neighborhood squares and plazas. And if you love boating, you can sail your way from your home straight into the shimmering waters of Biscayne Bay.
Nearby public schools include Ruth K. Broad Harbor K-8 Center, Nautilus Middle School, and Miami Beach High School.
The North Island is home to gorgeous single-family homes built anywhere from the 1930s to a few years ago. They come with a square footage of around 4,000 and up, and lot areas of about 0.5 acres or more. Each home boasts distinct architecture, many in the Mediterranean and ultra-contemporary styles, as well as top-of-the-line amenities like private swimming pools, elevators, entertainment rooms, and more.
The South Island is where you’ll find the prestigious Aqua at Allison Island, a luxury development that includes three condominium buildings and several townhomes in modernist and contemporary architecture. Exclusive amenities include swimming pools, fitness facilities, jogging paths, playgrounds, and more. With Aqua’s limited number of units and traditional town plan design, you get all the exclusivity and privacy you can expect in one of Miami Beach’s top luxury communities.
