Coconut Grove Bayfront Renovation Approved by Voters

Approved Coconut Grove Waterfront Master Plan
Approved Coconut Grove Waterfront Master Plan











As a Coconut Grove resident, I find this news to be exciting for the community.  Although naysayers believe that it will turn the Grove in to a commercial Bayside-like atmosphere with too much traffic, I think the redevelopment of the 7 acre bay front area will highlight Coconut Grove’s aviation history with the restoration of the two Pan Am airplane hangars, will modernize it with a new and chic shopping/dining area, will provide alternative parking options, will attract more residents and visitors to the parks/green areas (also set to be revitalized), and I believe it will also enhance the character of the older, more bohemian Grove.  People will come out to shop in the new district and with only a few restaurant options in the bayfront area, they will walk to Cocowalk or try the restaurants along & off of Main Highway such as Lulu’s, Greenstreets, The Sandbar, Le Bouchon, Calamari, Jaguar, the list goes on.  This investment in the Coconut Grove waterfront will boost interest in the area and boost local shops and restaurants.  CLICK HERE to read more about the plan to renovate the Coconut Grove Bay Front area.With everything that is happening in Miami – the upper east side/Edgewater area exploding, the new Frost Science Museum along with the Perez Art Museum in our downtown area, the plans for the total overhaul of the Miami Beach convention center – Miami is undergoing a renaissance and personally, I think it’s about time Coconut Grove went from a diamond in the rough to a polished valuable gem while preserving it’s historic and bohemian roots.  If you are thinking of buying a condo in Coconut Grove or any surrounding areas, click here to read more about condo financing in Miami, FL.  You don’t have to memorize all these ins and outs of financing, I have an amazing banker who will help you navigate the world of financing.
