Early years[edit]

Prior to 1940, most of what is now North Bay Village lay beneath the waters of Biscayne Bay. The only dry land was Broadcast Key, a 5-acre (20,000 m2) island from which pioneer radio station WIOD began broadcasting in 1926.

Today, television station WSVN-TV maintains its headquarters at this same site, now joined with Treasure Island. WIOD moved inland during the mid-2010s.

In 1940, dredging and bulk-heading created North Bay Island. By 1941, palm-lined streets had been laid out, and 12 homes had been built and occupied. Today, the island has grown into a neighborhood of single-family residences.

During the mid-1940s, dredging and filling created Harbor Island and Treasure Island. Harbor Island is composed primarily of multi-family buildings. Treasure Island, whose street names were drawn from Robert Louis Stevenson's novel Treasure Island, is a mixture of single-family dwellings on the westerly end and multi-family dwellings on the eastern end.


North Bay Village was incorporated in 1945. Harbor and Treasure Islands were annexed several years later. Broadcast Key, also known as Cameo Island, was annexed in 1963. During its early years, North Bay Village was primarily a haven for winter residents.

The City became widely known for its popular restaurants and nightclubs, which attracted celebrities like Frank Sinatra and Judy Garland. Dean Martin had a nightclub in North Bay Village in the late 1960s and early 1970s called Dino's. It was next to Jilly Rizzo's club, Jilly's.[citation needed]

Most of today's residents live in the village year-round.[6]

Most construction in North Bay Village since the year 2000 has been in the development of high-rise luxury condominium buildings such as the 360 condominium, Space 01 Condo, Eloquence on the Bay, and Grandview Palace Marina.


The revitalization of a city. A new group of luxury new developments are underway such as 7918 West Ave and Shoma Bay (which will include a Publix on the ground floor) Other luxury residential and mixed-used construction projects by Sunbeam (Channel 7), Continuum Village, 7940 West Ave, 7915 West Ave are planned to be in development soon. The city has also made exciting public-private development agreements with Argentine Futbol Association (AFA) to build a local soccer academy and dramatically improve the public fields at Treasure Island Elementary. Further development of The Island Walk has begun; The Island Walk is a pedestrian walkway that will span over 2 miles along the city’s waterfront.
