The proposed New Town townhomes have been approved for Coral Gables on Almeria Avenue. The project will feature four townhouses with a Mediterranean influenced design by Borges + Associates Architects which they have updated to meet compliance. The city of Coral Gables initially had requested Borges + Associates Architects and developer Pedro Viana to rework the design to a more Mediterranean style which would be more consistent with the traditional architecture throughout the city after they had initially proposed a radical new contemporary design. The design of the project will integrate the existing Oak trees on the property. The units will be 3-levels and 6,500 SF. The feature a plunge pool, elevator, four-car garage, rooftop garden, European kitchen and smart home technology. Groundbreaking is expected in the summer of 2017 with completion expected in Fall 2018.
“The trees are what really make this particular Coral Gables residential neighborhood extra special,” said Borges + Associates’ Principal Reinaldo Borges. “It’s value-added that also enhances the architecture.” said Reinaldo Borges, principal at Borges + Associates Architects.
