Coconut Grove Proposes 6 Million Dollar Project to Enhance its Business District
The project plans to pretty much take the business district to the next level. Part of the revamp will be by widening sidewalks, installing to lighting, planting and replacing trees.
According to the Miami Herald report the project will take place in two phases:
“The first phase of construction will be on Florida Avenue, Virginia Street, Mary Street, Fuller Street and Commodore Plaza. The plans for Fuller are not yet complete.
The second phase, which is still in the conceptual phase, will include Bayshore Drive, Grand Avenue, MacFarlane Road and Main Highway.
The city expects work on Florida Avenue to begin in late June or early July. The city also expects to complete the first set of improvements in autumn 2013.”
The Grove brings fond memories for me as I’m sure it does to most people growing up in Miami.
Who doesn’t involuntarily smirk at the thought of moments our younger versions spent with friends hanging out at the Grove, right?
In addition to my own biased view on that wonderful community, I believe that progressive urban designs and Real Estate deals and projects that further gentrify and unifies local communities are a good thing.
So let’s get started!
