Coral Gables is set to see a new high-rise, following approval from the Coral Gables City Commission on Tuesday, the Miami Herald reported.  Miami-based Astor Development Holdings wants to build a mixed-use, 180-unit rental, dubbed the Merrick Manor, on a disused trolley yard on LeJeune Road and Altara Avenue by next year. Plans call for apartment sizes ranging between 790 and 1,200 square feet, 11,740 square feet of retail and 5,946 square feet of office space. “I think we’ll all be happy with the project,” said Mario Garcia-Serra of Greenberg Traurig, who is representing the developers.
