Coral Gables, Florida, is one of Miami’s most famous and distinguished neighborhoods and is located between Deering Bay Golf Course and the West Flagler Avenue and Red roads and LeJeune to the west and east.
City of Coral Gables or “The City Beautiful” has a lot of history. Coral Gables Florida was planned in the 1920s by visionary developer George Merrick. The Mediterranean Revival style of architecture was first introduced in the US at the end of the 19th Century and reached its popularity during the “Roaring Twenties” and thirties.
During this time frame, Mediterranean Revival-style home construction was used extensively in the coastal areas of both California and Florida. This style of the home building involved using stucco to finish outside walls along with terra cotta or tiled roofs and dramatic arches to create a look that had only been seen in coastal communities throughout the Mediterranean region.
You can find this style of construction being used in hotels, office buildings, apartment buildings, and condominiums, and a wide variety of homes ranging from those priced modesty to many of the most luxurious homes.
Today Coral Gables is a significant business center for both local and international businesses. It is also desirable because of its proximity to Miami Downtown, Brickell, and the Miami International Airport.
The University of Miami is the City’s largest employer.
