What makes this small strip of land so uniquely special is its deep historic roots that parallel the growth of Miami Beach. Initially discovered by legendary real estate developer Carl Fisher, Allison Island was uncovered as a land lapped by mangrove swamps, overrun with alligators. However, Fisher saw a vision of ingenuity. Built in tribute to Fisher friend and business partner, Jim Allison, this tropical barrier island was thought to turn into a snapshot of pure real estate paradise. Allison opened the first state-of-the-art hospital on the tip of the island in 1926, intended to aid the wealthy homeowners who had recently fled to Miami Beach. This luxury hospital was remodeled into St. Francis Hospital, which served the community for the next six decades. It wasn’t until the late 1990s that Allison Island became one of the most industrious redevelopment projects in the area, with the construction of high-end residential condominiums and sultry estates boasting the coastal lifestyle. Purchased by real estate magnate Carl Robins, Allison Island quickly evolved into a private island baring a contemporary ambiance. Bringing renewed purpose and glory to the island in collaboration with his development firm Dacra, Robbins assembled a team of prestigious architects and rebuilt Allison Island into a breathtaking haven resting in the middle of Miami Beach. Today, Allison Island is the embodiment of Miami Beach living, where the sun and all of its fragments can be seen from every angle.
