Photo: The Plaza In Coral Gables, Where Apple Is Opening An Office

A photo shows The Plaza in Coral Gables, which was completed in 2022.

Apple recently signed a lease to open an office of around 42,000 square feet, according to a report.

In addition to office space, the development includes apartments, retail, and a Loews Hotel.

Great development, but it remains empty

The 174 unit apartment building is 95% occupied. That is nearly the opposite of empty, they have 8 vacancies in a place where one bedroom apartments start at $3,800 per month.

The Loews hotel is operating upwards of 72% occupancy with an ADR over $200 per night.

The 467,000+ feet of office is not empty, building out office and retail spaces take time. The building opened in 2022, they are doing just fine.

still completely empty except for a couple of places. This is the biggest negative about coral gables is the time it takes to get permits and open businesses. By the time these businesses open they’ve wasted a lot of money in preopening that they struggle to stay afloat

correction: not completely empty but only a couple spots have opened so far so not many people coming in

So why is Apple staying in Coral Gables and not moving to Greater Downtown Miami?

because its a brand new Class A office space. By the time Apple builds out their space hopefully those retail spots will be open

Cover the Podiums
21 days ago

I get a lot of flak for saying cover the podiums nonstop. But that picture above of the Plaza in Coral Gables, believe it or not, are not actual apartment units. That’s the parking garage on the backside of the massive development. The parking podium doesn’t stand out because the city of Coral Gables has strict design requirements which forces developers to cover the podiums and camouflage them to the best of their abilities.

There’s absolutely zero excuse to not do this everywhere in Miami….especially in prime real estate such as Brickell and Edgewater

It’s required in Miami21 but the developers always get waivers.

Not to mention, construed to allow a podium to be covered by blinding murals and/or pieces sheet metal as “art.”

So Municipalities create Code Requirements that know will create a bargaining chip for them to grant waivers from developers. The constituents feel happy because their voice was heard in creating these codes. The city council feel happy because they got “concessions” in granting these code requirements. The developers feel happy because they got to break the rules and build denser faster cheaper. Its a racket done ’round the world, my naive friend.

Miami Worldcenter would have a better choice. I went to the Plaza, it was really boring

Something like this would look great in Riverside along the west bank of the Miami River, or the south side of Calle Ocho in Shenandoah.

Also, Coconut Grove.

Riverside is closer to core. Coconut grove is practically another suburb with coral gables

Please, Coconut Grove should not have paeudo Mediterranean architecture.
Would you add it to MiMo? Art Deco District? Wynwood?
