Street Address Guidelines


All residential dwelling and commercial units should be properly identified with large, easy-to-read street address numbers.  This makes it easy for emergency vehicles to find the location without wasting precious time looking for an address. Proper numbering of buildings also aids officials in assessing the condition of properties after a storm event or other emergency where an evacuation order has been given.

The following guidelines apply to single-family residences, duplexes, condominiums, apartments, offices and other commercial units.

  • House numbers can be on mailboxes or on the house exterior in an area clearly seen from the street.

  • For a residential building with four units or less (including single-family units and duplexes), address numerals should be
    at least
    • 4 inches high but
    • not greater than 10 inches high
    • preferably in a contrasting color to the structure
  • For a residential building with more than four units and nonresidential (commercial) buildings, address numerals should be
    • at least 10 inches high (per Village of Key Biscayne Code Sec. 30-192 (2)(a)(b))
    • preferably in a contrasting color to the structure
