Renderings Of Biggest Project Ever In Coral Gables, Now Rising

Construction is underway on the the largest project ever built in Coral Gables, valued at $600 million.

The Plaza Coral Gables (formerly called Mediterranean Village) will include 2.1 million square feet of space, spanning seven acres and three city blocks.

It will encompass approximately:

  • 174 luxury residential rental apartments
  • 242 hotel rooms, with the hotel rated 4.5 stars
  • 161,000 square feet of retail, with a focus on food and beverage
  • 447,000 square feet of office space in two towers
  • 2,400 parking spaces

The north parcel first phase broke ground last summer (including residential, office and retail), and is on track for completion by the end of 2020, a spokesperson told Miami Today. The central and southern parcels will follow the northern construction.

Agave Ponce, LLC, a subsidiary of Agave Holdings, LLC, is the developer.

RTKL is the architect.

The Herald featured a story recently of a single homeowner in the area of the development who has refused to sell.

I Love the single “UP” house in the middle of the development.

2,400 parking spaces

LMAO!!!

Miami Hurricane

Lawyers in the Gables aren’t going to take public transport and Uber waits are too long. It’s a compounding problem.

You realize the C and D keys are right next to each other, right? Great job catching his/her typo…

Heck, before that, somebody wrote “What a relieve…”

If Coral Gables really wants to imitate a European city, it would at a minimum some dedicated bus lanes in its downtown core.

Anonymous

nah, 2400 parking spaces sounds better.

It used to have trams. It would be great to see those running again along Coral Way and 8th Street, but that’s of course a pipe dream.

They should get rid of buses and subsidize Dodge Challenger leases for people instead.

Man I just love that architecture. So European. I love it.

The landscaping is the cherry on top.

I liked that name that had for it – Mediterranean Village

Sheesshh!.. will you parking whiners ever give it a rest?

Nope. We are legion for we are many!

We are running a bit late because the train is delayed.

Sheesh! Give it a rest. Two thousand parking spaces isn’t that much.

Beautiful, but am I the only one that read the Herald’s article… I love development but people we need to remember neighborhoods already exist. Just like you all complain about “square boxes in Downtown” don’t complement the neighborhood. Doesn’t matter the size, a neighborhood is a neighborhood.

I think Metrorail should be torn down to make way for a series of drag strips.

I thought that that was what HOV lanes were made for?

They should extend the Dolphin through the city so it is easier for cars to get to and from these new parking decks!

They should bulldoze city hall to make an on-ramp

I Hope they do a hotel reboot in coral gables.

Smart that they didn’t neglect those who need parking.
Stunning development.

Yeah.. some people think that the city should be in the business of making people ditch their cars.

I remember when Coral Gables was a Suburb….

Looks like downtown Boca

Even if it’s a little kitschy, it’s still so much better than any Arquitectonica or Stantec monstrosity of random windows and balconies splatted on glass and concrete boxes.

How much for the lone house that didn’t sell out ?

Anonymous

so beautiful!!!

I wonder how they’re going to incorporate the “Up” house. I think it’s a really interesting contrast and hope they make it work.

What are your opinions on the guy who refused to sell his house amid all this construction?

Anonymous

They can whine all they want, but it isn’t as if they weren’t offered a lot of money for their spot.

Anonymous

I’m glad to see that there are still people out there that can’t be bought!

Anonymous

If that’s their stance, then don’t start whining when the bulldozers arrive.

It is not a house, it is an office building and a historical and architectural treasure in Coral Gables. The project around it is just a tacky, generic pseudo mediterranean nightmare, closer in style to Nicolaus Ceaucescu’s palace in Romania than to anything else in Europe.

I’ll buy that sarcasm….

There are a few holdouts that you can see in the construction photo.

One is an office building, and another is a small single-family home. I think they are referring to the office building on Palermo, not the single-family home.

Anonymous

Those holdover homes/lots wont be worth anything after developers finish project.

Anonymous

The office building is not a holdout. The manager of the LLC is also a manager of the LLC for Agave.

thank you for that <3

I agree with you in almost everything, however, this project as ugly as it is was going to be built anyway. So now they are stuck with no money, in a house that worths close to nothing, and under a lot of pressure to maintain it accordingly with the new surroundings

Anonymous

When people put their emotions over intelligence. $900000 for God Sake. Once that project is finished the value of land would be close to $0. Enriqueta in Midtown made the same Mistake.

I see you don’t know anything about property appraisal or zoning. The land this house sits is more than likely double zoned. Meaning, it’s zoned for residential or commercial.

Anonymous

And the house from the stubborn homeowners that refused to sell still there. They’re going to regret not selling.

super tacky
