  1. Attention all interested in buying pre construction.
    There is a legal dispute between the city of Miami and Coconut Grove residents who do not want that Astor development install the new trolley of Coral Gables in their neighborhood.
    Astor development need to get an industrial lot to build the new trolley station, if they want to swap the corner of Lejeune Rd. and Altara Ave with the City Of Coral Gables. Currently (2013) they can't build the main corner of Merrick Manor, making it a risk buying if in the future fail to move the trolley from there…

    Things to consider before buying an apartment:

    – Intersection very noisy- Many vehicles a day pass, great congestion at peak times.
    – Just a block from the noisy Metrorail.
    – Area not very pretty.- Very far away from Miracle Mile and important places in Coral Gables.
    – Schools with many students from Coconut Grove- Far from the water (sea, beaches or any bay)
    – Higher Property Taxes- Coral Gables Zoning Codes that do not allow do anything.
    – Property is part of Industrial Sector of Coral Gables.- Few parking on the streets.
    – There are no parks nearby for children to play.
    – Area with many sexual offender and predators registered according to Florida Law Enforcement.
    – Apartments have very thin walls and listen to the neighbors.
    – Investment apartments, tenants who do not care have property.
    – Bad walking score.
