Star Island’s Beginnings

 

Star Island is an artificial island dating back to the 20th century. The railway was built in Miami-Dade County. Soon, developers recognized Miami Beach's potential to be a town resort.

 

As the government and people in business made land improvements, Miami Beach grew. With this development, they drained marshes and leveled islands. One of these new islands then is Star Island. The sand dredging by the Army Corps of Engineers around 1922 paved the way for this beautiful island. Prominent entrepreneur, Carl Fisher owned Star Island first.

 

Star Island became a prize catch for real estate. Distinguished architects like Walter De Garmo built big mansions around the neighborhood. Most homeowners were Miami’s VIPs. New residents replaced the original mansions with modern structures through the years. Yet, the island's prestige and exclusivity have continued despite these changes.
