Neighborhood Streetscape Improvements (Final Plan)

On January 24th 2018, Agave Ponce LLC, Dover Kohl & Partners, the City of Coral Gables and the neighbors met at the Police station Meeting Room to go over the final Proposed Streetscape Improvements based on the previous sessions and meetings.

Bellow is the Dover Kohl Presentation as presented, including small revisions/changes based on the final comments from various neighbors who attended the meeting. This presentation is now with the City Of Coral Gables for their final review and approval.

As soon as this is approved by the City, Agave Ponce will start with the works which will begin with site surveying, civil and landscaping construction documents preparation and permitting both with the City and Miami-Dade County.

We will keep you posted!

Temporary Street Closures

“The Plaza Coral Gables” Development Team is pleased to announce that the site preparation continues full speed ahead in order to be able to start the construction activities in the first quarter of 2018. As the preliminary works (demolition, backfilling and material transportation) plus the future construction activities occur on all parcels of the Project Site simultaneously, the 1-block street portions of Coconut Grove Dr. and Palermo Ave. (contained within the project site) will be closed for the duration of the construction (please see below diagram). This will preserve vehicle and pedestrian safety while also allowing construction vehicles to do most loading/unloading activities, etc. from within the site without blocking Ponce de Leon or any of the neighboring streets.

Off-Site Improvement News

Agave Ponce and the City of Coral Gables are reviewing the plan, schedule and budget for the off-site improvements based on the design provided by Dover Kohl, which will be presented to the neighbors within a month. We will publish any updates as they are received.

Curb Improvement on Malaga Avenue

Permits are in place and work is scheduled to commence during the first 2 weeks of October for the improvement of the road alignment and street curb on Malaga Ave. (between Ponce de Leon and Coconut Grove Drive).

The work is scheduled to last between 1 and 1 and a half weeks. These improvements are necessary to widen the street at the curve and to make that segment of Malaga Ave. safer and easier to drive (see picture).

October Construction Updates

We would like to share the latest news on our construction activities.

North Parcel:

The North Parcel between, Sevilla and Palermo Aves. has been filled with material and compacted to street level (covering the hole that was left open several years ago when the old office tower was demolished).

We have started preliminary structural construction with the installation and testing of pile foundations. Once testing is complete, the bulk of the pile foundation construction for this parcel will continue for a couple of months, starting sometime in late October or mid-November.
