The proposed Paseo de la Riviera mixed-use development in Coral Gables survived its Planning and Zoning Board meeting last night without the board issuing a recommendation to either approve or deny it, leaving the project's fate entirely up to the city commission. Board members did suggest lowering the height of the project, including taking one floor off the top of the parking garage, according to the Real Deal. Yet in the end they declined to really go either way on the project, even though or perhaps partly because it has inspired heated controversy among neighbors for being 'too big' as well as enthusiastic support for its pedestrian-friendly urbanism.
