The One Tequesta Point condominium is located at 888 Brickell Key Drive on Brickell Key near Brickell Avenue and Downtown Miami. The Tequesta Point One has incredible bay, city and ocean views and year round bay breezes.

The history of Brickell Key can be traced to 1896, when Henry Flagler had a 9-foot deep channel dug from the mouth of the Miami River. In the process, Mr. Flagler created an off-shore property comprised of two small islands.

In 1943, an investor, Edward N. Claughton, Sr. acquired the islands and eventually purchased additional bay bottom land to combine them to a 44-acre triangle-shaped tract separated from the mansions of Miami’s fashionable Brickell Avenue by only a few hundred feet of water. In the late 1970’s, Swire Properties purchased most of the island property from the Claughtons, and began to put into place a master plan that would ultimately transform it into one of the most unique island communities in the world.

The Tequesta (also Tekesta, Tegesta, Chequesta, Vizcaynos) Native American tribe, at the time of first European contact, occupied an area along the Atlantic coast of Florida in what are now Broward and Miami-Dade Counties. They also occupied the Florida Keys at times, and may have had a village on Cape Sable, at the southern end of the Florida peninsula, in the 16th Century. The central town (also called Tequesta) was probably at the mouth of the Miami River. The Tequesta arrived in the Biscayne Bay area around the beginning of the Current Era. The Tequestas placed their towns and camps at the mouths of rivers and streams, on inlets from the Atlantic Ocean to inland waters, and on barrier islands and keys.

The Tequesta were more or less dominated by the more numerous Calusa of the southwest coast of Florida. Estimates of the number of Tequestas at the time of initial European contact range from 800 to 10,000, while estimates of the number of Calusas on the southwest coast of Florida range from 2,000 to 20,000. Occupation of the Florida Keys may have swung back forth between the two tribes. Although there is a Spanish record of a Tequesta village on Cape Sable, Calusa artifacts outnumber Tequesta artifacts by four to one at archeological sites there.
