Known as “The City Beautiful”, Coral Gables is characterized by Mediterranean revival style architecture, lush tree-lined streets and an upscale sophisticated lifestyle. Coral Gables, founded in the 1920’s by George Merrick, was one of the first planned communities in Miami, and remains one of the premier neighborhoods in all South Florida.
“The Gables”, as locals call it, is a meticulously designed municipality with spanish-style archways, fountains, and private courtyards, coupled with manicured lawns, and mature tree canopies. The Gables is truly a quintessential Miami neighborhood that combines tropical South Florida with Old World elegance. Several notable architectural landmarks include the Biltmore Hotel and the Venetian pool.
At the heart of the Gables is Miracle Mile, an upscale thoroughfare with boutique shops, art galleries and fine dining. Downtown Gables has a thriving business community with numerous multi-national corporations. Coral Gables is also home to the University of Miami. As an independent municipality at the heart of Miami, Coral Gables is conveniently located only minutes from Downtown Miami, the airport and the beaches.
