La Gorce Island Neighborhood

One of the few gated neighborhoods in Miami Beach, La Gorce Island is a very private, prestigious and secure enclave. Guards at the entrance and on marine patrol keep tabs on everyone who comes into the exclusive community.

The Island’s 94 residences feature every construction style, many designed by distinguished architects of the 1930s and 40s. Some modern mega-mansions have also gone up in the past few years. Most La Gorce Island homes have docks suitable for large yachts, and there are no drawbridges to the Atlantic Ocean.

La Gorce Island is just north of where Alton Road segues into 63rd Street. The Island is in the 33141 zip code. La Gorce Circle encompasses the Island with large lots for waterfront mansions.

La Gorce Island History

La Gorce Island was founded in the early 1920s by Miami Beach co-founder Carl Fisher, who named the Island after his friend John Oliver La Gorce, an editor with National Geographic magazine. Fisher also named La Gorce Drive and La Gorce Country Club after him. In return, La Gorce promoted the area in flowery prose such as “a place for pleasure-bent and health-seeking folk.”

Fisher started building La Gorce Country Club in 1924 by dredging more than two million cubic yards from Biscayne Bay and naming holes on the golf course after prominent people such as William Vanderbilt and humorist Will Rogers. The Country Club, totally restricted in the fashion of the time, became the social center for the old-guard captains of industry.

Noteworthy figures such as John Jacob Astor and the prominent Firestone, Hertz and Maytag families moved into the grand homes on La Gorce Island and in adjacent neighborhoods.
