Coconut Grove - Grove Properties

Coconut Grove is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Miami, incorporated in 1919. It is south of the neighborhood of Brickell east of Coral Gables. Locals refer to it as “The Grove”. The Grove has an amazing banyan tree canopy and peacocks roam freely through the neighborhood. In the 60’s Coconut Grove was famous for the youth countercultural movement. It still maintains a bohemian chic vibe today.

Coconut Grove is known for its beautiful location on the bay with a thriving marina. In addition, it is known for outdoor festivals, the most notable being the Coconut Grove Arts Festival held in February on President’s Weekend. The Kampong, a large botanical garden, is also there.
The Grove has many boutiques and outdoor cafes line the streets. It is a quaint historic village on the bay that is a great place to live as well as visit.

Coral Gables was a planned community by George Merrick in the 1920s, located south of downtown Miami and next to Coconut Grove. It is famous for its strict zoning regulations. The city’s architecture is almost entirely Mediterranean-styled and is referred to as “city beautiful”.   Merrick designed the downtown as a pedestrian-friendly city. Today there is a free trolley that runs down Ponce de Leon Boulevard.

In 1925, roughly simultaneous to the founding of Coral Gables, the city was selected as the home to the University of Miami.  Other famous landmarks include the Venetian Pool and the Biltmore Hotel.

Today, Coral Gables has some of the most exquisite homes in the Miami area.  It is known for shopping in exclusive stores and the Shops of Merrick Place, a high end outdoor shopping mall.  Coral Gables boasts many excellent restaurants as well.  It is conveniently located 4 miles south of Miami International Airport.

Downtown Brickell Real Estate - Grove Properties

Brickell is an urban neighborhood in Downtown Miami and the major financial district in the city. Brickell was originally settled in the mid 1800’s and grew to become Miami’s “Millionaire’s Row” after the construction of mansions along bay. By the 1970’s, office towers, hotels and condominiums replaced the historic mansions. Today Brickell is one of the largest financial districts in the United States and home to the largest concentration of international banks in the U.S.

Brickell is a dense, high-rise residential neighborhood with many new upscale, luxury condominium and apartment towers. Brickell is now one of Miami’s fastest growing neighborhoods. Recent construction there has also enlarged the urban core of Brickell from Brickell Avenue west to the Metrorail line. At the center of Brickell is Mary Brickell Village, with an assortment of restaurants and boutiques. The project is designed after a French style village and attracts social gathering and entertainment. A few hundred feet east of the northeastern side of Brickell is Brickell Key, a gated island of upscale, high-rise residential and hotel towers.
To the north of Brickell is Downtown, with most of the area’s public elementary schools and Miami-Dade’s Wolfson Campus. One of Miami’s key attractions amongst visitors is the Port of Miami, located in the Downtown area, which serves more than 3 million cruise passengers per year and constitutes the number one cruise port in the world. Guests and residents alike enjoy the stimulating cultural experiences offered by the Miami Children’s Museum, the James L. Knight Center, the Miami Art Museum, Parrot Jungle Island and the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts. The American Airlines Arena, home to the Championship Miami Heat basketball team, sits on the bay in the heart of downtown Miami next to Bayside Marketplace, a waterfront retail complex. Next to AA Arena is the up and coming Miami Museum Park where the new Science Museum and Art Museum are soon to open, 2013-2014. Downtown Miami is rapidly changing and becoming a world class vibrant downtown with many residential options and sweeping views of Biscayne Bay!

Miami Beach is a coastal resort city in Miami since 1917.  The municipality is located on a series of barrier islands between the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay. Miami Beach has been one of America’s stellar beach resorts since the early 20th century.

South Beach, known as SoBe,(the area from 1st street to about 25th street) is one of the more popular areas of Miami Beach. The Art Deco District, particularly Ocean Drive, has the largest collection of Art Deco architecture in the world and comprises hundreds of hotels, apartments and other structures.   Art deco buildings were renovated in the 90‘s to their original splendor and artists and style makers moved in. Highlights of SoBe include the New World Symphony in the new Frank Gehry building, The Miami City Ballet, Art Basel Miami Beach, and The Fontainebleau Miami Beach.  Bike to the beach, stroll Lincoln Road, dine at many iconic restaurants and people watch; SoBe has it all.

Living on Miami Beach is for every taste from artistic to international.  There are exceptional high rise condominiums, quaint walk up apartments or estates on the water.  It is definitely a place to see and be seen.

Pinecrest FL Real Estate - Grove Properties

Village of Pinecrest is located south of Coral Gables and East of Kendall, in Miami. Pinecrest is known for open spaces, sprawling estates, great schools, family recreation and lush landscapes.

Pinecrest began as a staging area for the railroad to the Keys, then in the 1930s, the area grew significantly and the community began to evolve around tourists and the Parrot Jungle and Gardens, where birds would “fly free.” It was founded in 1936 on property located at Red Road and Southwest 111 Street.  Parrot Jungle was built as a winding nature trail dug through the coral rock and hammock land. In 2002, the Village of Pinecrest purchased the Parrot Jungle with the aim of developing the site as Pinecrest Gardens. In 2003 the Pinecrest Village Council dedicated Pinecrest Gardens and officially opened it to the public as the Village’s newest municipal park.

During the 1950s and 1960s Pinecrest flourished with the development and construction of ranch style houses on 1 acre lots which laid the foundation for the community’s rural and lushly landscaped residential character. The Village of Pinecrest was officially incorporated in 1996. Since then Pinecrest has several new parks and beautification projects which included thousands of trees being planted, unique street signs being posted, and roads being repaved.

The City of South Miami, or “SoMi”, as it is referred to by locals, is approximately 3 miles south of the City of Miami. It borders the University of Miami’s main campus and the cities of Coral Gables and Pinecrest.

South Miami, incorporated in 1927, is one of the County’s oldest municipalities.  The “town center” is on Sunset Drive, a vibrant shopping, dining and entertainment street with a hometown ambiance. Two major hospitals within the city provide employment and services to people throughout the area.  South Miami is a great place to live, work and visit.

Key Biscayne FL Real Estate - Grove Properties

Key Biscayne is an island town in Miami that lies south of Miami Beach and east of Miami Downtown.  It is known for ocean views, white sandy beaches and nature parks.  While there had been earlier schemes to develop a town on Key Biscayne, it wasn’t until the opening of the four-mile long Rickenbacker Causeway from Miami to Virginia Key and on to Key Biscayne in 1947 that the island was opened up to large scale residential development.

The southern third of Key Biscayne became Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park in 1967.    North of Bill Baggs is the village center.  The area was incorporated as a new municipality in 1991.  In recent years, the construction of several large resort hotels, condominium complexes and shopping centers on the island has affected the once serene island life, as commercialism has continued to accelerate.  The Village has its own fire, police and public elementary and middle school.  Mast Academy, on Rickenbacker Causeway, is open to high school students residing on Key Biscayne.  Mast Academy is a nationally recognized, innovative school of choice with a marine theme.  In 2004, the Village completed the construction of a civic center including fire, police and administration buildings and a recreation and community center with indoor multi use courts, outdoor swimming pool and a renowned musical theater program. Key Biscayne also hosts the Tennis Center at Crandon Park, home to the Sony Open Tennis Tournament, and a golf course, along with many amenities for water sports and fishing. Key Biscayne is luxury island living with a small town feel and from waterfront to high rise you can find it all.
