Coconut Grove Overview
Coconut Grove is the oldest neighborhood in Miami. The landing post for many American and foreign settlers looking for the promise of free land, Coconut Grove is full of character. Known as an enclave for artists, free-spirited souls and colorful personalities, Coconut Grove is one of the most coveted neighborhoods in Miami.
It's evolved to be an eclectic and affluent neighborhood attracting residents from all over the world and some of Miami's most successful entrepreneurs. It's a tropical heaven, with peacocks peacefully roaming its streets and homes romantically tucked in behind luscious oaks and exotic plants. In Coconut Grove no street is ever the same.
Nowadays, cozy bungalows are been torn down to make way for modern and minimalist mansions with starting prices in the $2M. The "Grove", as it's called by locals, is divided in two sections: the North Grove, closer to the Bay/Downtown area, and the South Grove which borders Coral Gables. Coconut Grove primarily features single family homes, and a few small exclusive gated communities that are both, private and understated. The heart of the Grove (Main Highway) is undergoing a transformation, and some of the newest most daring local chefs are opening restaurants in the area along exclusive shops and boutiques. The area bordering the bay will soon feature the most exclusive and luxurious condos the neighborhood has seen in decades (The Governor's House and Grove Park).
What I love the most about Coconut Grove:
The lush and tropical landscape, it's meandering and cozy streets.
The colorful locals. This is a very interesting, irreverent and eclectic neighborhood.
It's experiencing a revival and a transformation.
This is a boutique collection of twenty-six new and exceptional waterfront residences with direct access to Biscayne Bay, and with sublime indoor and outdoor amenities. Secluded, private and green. Generous layouts that bring the outdoors indoors. From $1.4million ( 2- 4 bedrooms). To get inspired watch this video.
Much talked about waterfront luxury condo development consisting of three residential towers with 284 residences. A Terra and Related development designed and lead by OMA and Rem Koolhaas, with interiors by Meyer Davis. Two of the three towers are almost sold out. Estimated completion date late 2017.
