Construction has broken ground at The Residences at Vizcaya (3535 Hiawatha Avenue, Coconut Grove). There will be 18 condo units total, and 9 units have already sold. Construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2009, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they weren’t finished until 2010. Builders are typically very optimistic about their completion date. I am happy to see developers building small scale boutique condos here in Coconut Grove (as opposed the mega waterfront buildings that have recently been proposed and denied).
The units at The Residences at Vizcaya are high end with pre-construction prices running in the $3,000,000 to $4,000,000 range. There will be two docks and boat slips will be available.
The developers are also in the process of renovating Steele Park that is located at the entryway to the Residences at Vizcaya. They will be putting in new picnic benches, trees, sod, lighting, new dogipots and a waterfountain.
