Renderings of The Harbour Planned On Coconut Grove’s Waterfront

The Harbour appears to be expanding to Coconut Grove.

Renderings show the outdoor food and beverage concept opening near Miami city hall, according to a presentation made to the Coconut Grove Village Council.

The design appears to be similar to The Wharf in downtown Miami and Fort Lauderdale, which share the same owner, Breakwater Hospitality Group.

A baywalk and elevated deck are shown in the plans.

The Harbour is a component of the Regatta Harbour complex, which also includes additional dining and retail options.

A historic 20,000 square foot waterfront airplane hangar that dates to the early 1900s and was formerly used by Pan Am Airways will be redeveloped into a food hall and entertainment complex as part of the redevelopment.

It is not what we were promised originally. It’s a tent, not quality architecture as shown in earlier presentations. Why did it charge to this cheaper version? The waterfront should get high design construction, not a catering pop up.

Seems to be a smaller version of Bayside and a larger version of The Wharf.
Sorry, but I hope our City did not spend a penny on this project. This looks like a pop-up similar to The Wharf or that temp place near Brickell City Centre.

From the drawings is looks like something has changed from the first pictures last year. What changed? Looks cheaper – just a tent. Thought we were going to get someting speical on the site – a signature building.

So true. With Miami’s rich history and importance in Aviation, it is a wonder that there isn’t a kick ass aviation museum in or around City Hall.

The hangers were fought for several years ago and saved. They are now deemed historic.

Replace the system with streetcars, and include transfer stops to Metromover.

Metrorail* at Coconut Grove and Vizcaya Stations.

The only way street cars can go on Coral Way is if all the large banyan trees are removed. Historically their was a street car running straight down coral way that connected Coral Gables with Brickell. In the 20s the line was ripped up and converted to what we see today.

I think Breakwater owns The Wharf, not The Harbor, in Miami and FLL. If so, it’d be a perfect fit for the Grove and would give visitors more access to the waterfront.

Cool, move city hall to the old courthouse on Flagler Street, and extend this to include that historic building, too.

One of the reasons why we have city hall in the grove was that during the annexation process, many in the grove thought that being absorbed into the City of Miami would diminish the importance of Coconut Grove and its unique culture. Moving town hall to the grove helped anchor it to the City of Miami. Without a major tether like City Hall, coconut grove residents could try and breakaway from the City and attempt to re-establish themselves as an independent city like Coral Gables.

What happened to the Architectonica design used to initally sell the project??? This seem like a cheaper version of the plan. Gone is “Hanger 52”? The rest looks like a tent – has there been a bait and switch? Not what you see on Regatta Harbour’s web site.

Why not spend some money next to City Hall and create some canopy of trees to provide shade… something Coconut Grove is known to provide?

One cool detail is the nautical flags on the roof and flagpole spell REGATTA and GROVE.

Torn by this plan. A better use would not entail commercial exploitation of precious Bayfront real estate. Rather, a new park with amenities like restrooms, shaded seating and gardens would better serve the local community. The emissions, litter and debris found along Regatta Park and the Seminole boat ramp already presages the environmental impact this development will produce. Conversely, the existing site is tired and worn. The pier rebuild project has taken too long, and benefits only boat owners who have private access to their slips, which are gated and locked.
