If they do it most likely going to turn into a small office space or boutique hotel.

Maybe it will become open space or a park if they ever sell. It so out of place.

Yep, and it’s a crummy 1950s or 60s house of no historic value whatsoever.

In Chanel 7 News they did the report… he got great offers but the sentimental 😭 value was more important
Now the day he wants or need to sell he will have no leverage and probably only the condominium will offer whatever they want !

It’s not a house. It was the office of Phineas Paist, the original town architect of Coral Gables. It’s a historic landmark.

He don’t want to sell it, because his mom told him not to before she passed away last year. He still feel his parents spirits in the house.

The house and the Phineas Paist office building are two different things. The house, who knows, but the office building is staying, albeit spruced up.

Gorgeous project. I’m eager to see how they are going to handle the retail, restaurant component. It would be a huge mistake to make another Cocowalk. Obviously, that didn’t work. Just like the Mary Brickell doesn’t work. Go back to regular street level retail urban grid. Lots of malls and strip malls fail because of this concept.

Mary Brickell has the most foot traffic of Brickell, what are you talking about ?

Exterior facing retail at Mary Brickell Village like Moxy’s, North Italia, Starbucks, etc does really well. Stores facing inward in the mall struggle to get foot traffic (Burgar & Beer Joint, Doraku, etc).

Both of those were kicked out bc they didnt want to take the rent raise. Mister 01 and a few others are going to be moving into all that space.

That interior space is what gives the facade of a larger area to play and hang out with natural visual surveillance for safety from other business and potential people, even when the majority stay towards the road because it’s a main thoroughfare to BCC which is a huge hang out spot too, MBV and BCC are huge
