Stock Island is an island in the Lower Florida Keys immediately east of Key West (separated from Key West by Cow Key Channel) in Monroe County, Florida. The population is approximately 4,500. Supposedly it was named for herds of livestock formerly kept there. Currently it is an island of transition and contrast. The northern side of Stock Island which is incorporated into the City of Key West is home to the Key West Golf Course with its gated residential community, Florida Keys Community College, Tennessee Williams Center for the Performing Arts, Key West Botanical Gardens, Lower Keys Medical Center and the Monroe County Detention Center.
Lower Florida Keys Real Estate
Once the economy improves their are plans for the last undeveloped area closest to US 1, on Key Haven. There will be a total of 43 luxury single-family Key West style homes built. In addition, 10,000 square feet will be set aside for commercial development. The Lower Florida Keys will take full advantage of this commercial area which will sit behind the gas station on US 1. Blending well with the existing 475 residential homes on Key Haven, the Key Haven Civic Association endorses this development and I'm sure many of these homes will be purchased by residents of the Key West community.
