The Groove in the Grove

August 5, 2019

The Groove is back in the Grove, Miami’s most dynamic neighborhood. Where one lives in Miami boils down to understanding each area and what is going up (sometimes down) in each neighborhood. Every month, we will talk about a specific neighborhood and attempt to shed some light on what is happening within its confines. In this case, we will talk about how THE GROOVE IS BACK IN THE GROVE.

While Coconut Grove has been undergoing a transformation in the past years, it still maintains a charm found nowhere else in Miami. It is a bayfront city within a city that is both upscale and casual. With a foot traffic of 70,000 a month,  the Grove is pedestrian friendly which makes it a genuine neighborhood. It has a walkability factor that other areas in Miami don’t provide.

Fast forward to a couple of years from now and the Grove will probably solidify itself as one of the best pockets in Miami.  Coconut Grove will cater to the tourists but its focus will be more on being the hamlet and playground for the locals.

Here is a sneak peek of what is under construction, what has been delivered and what is in the pipeline for the Grove.

Rendering of CocoWalk

Construction Updates

Cocowalk – The reinvention of Cocowalk is curated and planned to include a selection of local, homegrown cool and innovative retailers in lieu of only traditional stores. It also includes the 5 story office building One CocoWalk.  According to a JLL report, Coconut Grove’s Class A office-vacancy rate is around the tiny 1.7%. Boyne Capital just leased at CocoWalk.

The existing Mediterranean façade of the building will be preserved, but it will be modernized. Under Phas.
