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.

The previous sale of the vacant lot was for $4,700,000 in August 2004,
at the height of the Miami real estate boom. Eight months later, the property
was again listed for sale, this time, for an incredible $6,800,000. When
