Venetian Islands Real Estate
Venetian Islands real estate is extraordinary! You don't have to endure jet lag and time zone differences to enjoy the beauty of Italy. Located just off Miami Beach, Florida's own Venetian Islands (NE 15th St. and Dade Blvd.) were joined together in 1926 by a bascule bridge known as the Venetian Causeway. Venetian Islands real estate includes many luxury homes and condos on the 6 Venetian Islands. A series of bridges connecting the Venetian Islands and stretching between Miami and Miami Beach feature octagonal concrete entrance towers, which give you a great view of the water. The oldest causeway in metropolitan Miami, the Venetian is rickety in a charming way, featuring fantastic views of the city and the mammoth cruise ships docked at the port, not to mention a glimpse of some of Miami's most beautiful waterfront homes. Bikers and joggers especially love passing the Venetian Islands homes and condos on the Venetian causeway because of limited traffic and beautiful scenery.

Collins and Carl G. Fisher which opened up the barrier island for unprecedented growth and development.

single-family residences. Originally planned to be a part of the total
Venetian Islands Project with Belle Island, Di Lido, San Marino and Rivo
Alto were subsequently "split-out" as a separate package because they
were not deemed to be within a Priority drainage basin by the City's PWD.
On the other hand, the Belle Island was. The Department of Environmental
Management would not issue a permit for a complete project, if all islands
did not receive stormwater improvements. However, not having been designated
a Priority Basin, monies made available to the Venetian Islands through
the bond issue were appropriately reallocated to fund shortfalls within
other priority basins citywide. Hence, Bid Packages 13B and 13C were separated
for permitting purposes. Please contact the CIP Office for further details
