Merrick Manor is rising in Coral Gables after years of setbacks, with vertical construction starting at 301 Altara Avenue for the 10-story luxury residential project that’s been planned since what feels like the Clinton presidency.
The news comes shortly after a 5,000-square-foot sales gallery was constructed across the street at 4200 Laguna Street, showcasing its model kitchen, bathroom, living room, and master bedroom, with interiors designed by Stephen G.
The Astor Companies development is a Mediterranean villa-style building located near the Shops at Merrick Park. It was designed by Behar Font & Partners with Witkin Hults Design Group providing landscape design. Over 50 percent of the 227-unit condo development (originally 180 units) is under contract with units starting in the $500,000s and ranging up $3 million.
There will also be 19,000 square feet of ground-floor retail. Completion is expected in 2019.
“We are incredibly excited to move forward with the construction of Merrick Manor,” said Henry Torres, President, CEO and Founder of The Astor Companies. “This project is bringing a convergence of location, elegance, comfort and luxury to Coral Gables. That formula has resulted in widespread interest from local, domestic and international buyers.”
