Board To Review Controversial Plan For Coconut Grove Waterfront

A plan to remake the Coconut Grove waterfront is up for review by Miami’s Historic Preservation Board today.

The plan includes the demolition of Scotty’s Landing and the Chart House, and the addition of new boat storage space, restaurants, retail, and a promenade along the water.

Miami voters approved the project last year, although activists claim that the majority of voters in Coconut Grove precincts voted against the proposal. Several lawsuits that could halt the project remain pending.
