With no shops on the island – residents go to nearby Bal Harbour for that – there’s no social hub beyond the Country Club. “It’s just big estates on particularly big lots,” says Mansfield. “It’s certainly not the case that hordes of people will be driving around looking for Ivanka’s house, as they simply won’t be allowed on the island.”
Ivanka’s move to Miami mirrors a wider migrational shift, adds Ian Reisner, vice president at Dezer Development, whose projects include the branded Residences by Armani/Casa on Sunny Isles Beach. “Businesses and individuals – particularly from New York – are re-evaluating where they want to live and they are moving to Florida because of the quality of life,” says Reisner.
Indian Creek’s residents may worry that their quality of life is temporarily in jeopardy, with the glare of the global spotlight on them due to the arrival of the First Daughter. But in a community of high-profile billionaires, with their personal police escorts on land and sea, that surely won’t be anything they can’t handle.
