MIAMI HERALD — SEPTEMBER 13, 2019 — BY REBECCA SAN JUAN Coral Gables has moved a step closer to having a seven-story hotel on Miracle Mile.
The Coral Gables Planning and Zoning Department recommended that Gables Miracle Mile, LLC, registered under Terranova Corp., build at 220 Miracle Mile. The parcel comprises eight lots on less than an acre.
In a 4-2 vote, the department Wednesday approved a receipt of transfer of development rights and a downtown overlay site plan. The transfer involves another property owner by Terranova, 348 Miracle Mile, which houses Bijou Bridal.
Plans at 220 Miracle Mile call for Terranova to build a 120-room hotel, 16,000 square feet of ground floor commercial use and another 11,000 square feet of commercial space on the upper floors, including a rooftop restuarnat, designed by Arquitectonica. The project, which would have to be approved by the City Commission, would cover 23,940 square feet.
