La Gorce Island Real Estate, Miami Beach
La Gorce Island real estate is encompassed by a private gated island in Miami Beach, Florida, and consists of both waterfront and interior homes in a lush tropical setting. The homes on the southwest corner of the island have open water views across Biscayne Bay to the Miami skyline. Large yachts can be found at a number of La Gorce island docks. Some of the estates on this exquisite island go well into eight figures.
The La Gorce Neighborhood includes all of the area from Surprise Lake, north to La Gorce Island, and from Biscayne Bay east to the Indian Creek waterway, and is generally comprised of single-family residential streets. There are no institutional uses, and only one small commercial building on 51st Street and Cherokee Avenue. La Gorce Island and Allison Island are part of the neighborhood; however improvements to the islands were performed by the City under separate contracts and are not included in the scope of the ROW Improvements Program. In addition, as Alton Road, Pine Tree Drive and La Gorce Drive are no City corridors, they are also not included in the scope of the project. To this end, the ROW Project will generally provide improvements to the Lakeview Area, bounded by Lakeview Drive and 51st Street on the south side of the neighborhood, and the La Gorce Park area, located to the north of 63rd Street. The connecting corridor along North Bay Road will also receive Stormwater improvements.
