The Allen Morris Company and Related Group have teamed up again as they are set to propose their own bid on a new mixed-use project in the fast-growing downtown area of Coral Gables. The City of Coral Gables has tagged the 2 acre zone between 245 and 345 Andalusia Ave. as ready for development, and weighed 5 proposals from the areas' top developers before cutting the list down to two. Later this month, the city Commission will vote between The Allen Morris Company & Related Group's proposal against that of Terranova and Zom.

The Allen Morris Company/ Related Group proposal for Coral Gables City Center will be a $250 million, twin tower development that will bring more residential units, office space and retail to downtown Coral Gables. Spread out over 2 towers towers, the development is expected to feature over 270 residential units, 140,000 SF of office space, 28,749 SF of ground-floor retail and  1,560 parking spaces. The residential tower will be 17 floors while the office tower will be 16 floors. The proposal also includes the building of a public park on the site. The building will be designed by Zyscovich and will reflect the historical charm that makes Coral Gables such a clean, beautiful city.
