Sustainability Goes Beyond Being Green

At Swire Properties, sustainability means a lot more than being green. As a core part of our business, sustainability at Swire Properties has evolved far beyond water and energy efficiency; it is at the foundation of everything we do. Swire Properties has embraced the vision of becoming the leading sustainable development performer globally by the year 2030. This vision clearly articulates our direction and serves as a goal for our SD 2030 Strategy. The SD 2030 Strategy originated from a creative mindset of innovation and experimentation and is rooted in five strategic pillars– Places, People, Partners, Environmental Performance, and Economic Performance. When we consider our developments, every aspect is approached with the lens of sustainability. For every detail, we ask the question, “How does this task contribute to our goal?” It motivates the way we design, build, create communities, and connect people in living spaces of the future.

Swire Properties, The History of Brickell Key

Brickell Key is the love of my life. People often struggle to grasp how I could have such an earnest affection for this beautiful man-made island, but it has had a life-changing influence on me. Maybe because ever since its humble beginnings, this bustling oasis has prompted a significant shift in the Miami landscape.

In the late 1970s, Swire Properties had the brilliant vision to transform the 44-acre site off the coast of Miami mainland, formally known as Claughton Island, into what is now known as Brickell Key. Two decades later, Swire had already completed four residential projects and two office buildings on the island, creating Miami’s newest thriving community on Brickell Key.
