Coral Gables Condo Buildings
Coral Gables, known as "The City Beautiful", has all the charm and sophistication of the Mediterranean in the 1920s. With its entrances, esplanades, fountains and architectural style of the homes and the buildings, this prestigious city has earned its name. The tree-lined streets of banyan, oak, palms, and royal Poinciana complete this picture of harmony within the neighborhood.
In 1925, Coral Gables was founded by George Merrick, who named it after his native rock childhood home. Two other structures of that era, The Biltmore Hotel and Venetian Pool, are national historic landmarks today. Also in 1925, the city was selected to be the home of the newly founded University of Miami.
Located southwest of Downtown Miami, and four miles from the Miami International Airport, Coral Gables is served by three Metrorail stations and a short cab ride away from some of Miami's popular attractions on South Beach, Bal Harbour, and Coconut Grove.
The City offers its residents a safe and quiet living environment amongst historic landmarks, an international business center and a thriving downtown with some of the finest restaurants in South Florida. It is one of the most sought after shopping destinations in the world from the Village of Merrick Park to Miracle Mile with its award-winning European and domestic furniture manufacturers, art galleries, bridal shops, designer boutiques, and the finest jewelers.
Whether you decide to rent, buy, or just visit Coral Gables, your time spent in the grandeur of "The City Beautiful" will leave you with a lasting memory.
