Pioneering Miami developer The Astor Companies is setting a new standard for luxury, sophistication and lifestyle in the “City Beautiful” with the completion of Merrick Manor.
The 10-story, mixed-use building with 227 residences and nearly 20,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space represents the only new, move-in ready condominium offering in Coral Gables.
Astor received a Temporary Certificate of Occupancy (TCO) from the city, paving the way for closings and resident move-ins to begin at the building, located at 301 Altara Ave., just steps away from the Shops at Merrick Park. Merrick Manor is the largest residential development delivered in Coral Gables in nearly a decade.
For Henry Torres, Astor founder, president and CEO, a Coral Gables resident and business owner, completing Merrick Manor is a culmination of his vision to redefine luxury living in the city he loves. The building blends timeless Mediterranean-style architecture with contemporary style, with the renowned Behar Font & Partners serving as Merrick Manor’s architect and award-winning interiors by Steven G. designing and furnishing the building’s lobby, common areas and model residences.
Jaxi Builders is Merrick Manor’s general contractor.
“This is a special moment for our company, my family, the project team and everyone who supported Merrick Manor along the way,” Torres said. “No detail was spared in conceiving this project, which addresses the pent-up demand from a wide range of buyers for modern luxury residences located within walking distance to incredible shopping, dining and art galleries. I can’t wait to see our first residents move in and experience this unparalleled lifestyle.”
More than 65 percent of Merrick Manor’s residences are under contract, with prices for remaining units starting from $374,990 and ranging up to $2.6 million. Remaining units range from 574 square feet to more than 3,400 square feet. The one-to-four-bedroom residences feature exceptional finishes, including Italian cabinetry, Bosch appliances, white quartz countertops and spacious terraces.
The Agency Development Group is overseeing residential sales at Merrick Manor, led by managing director Sasha Ezquerra and residential sales director Esther Prat.
