Locals will have the chance to view the project details of a planned 24 hour CVS pharmacy in Coconut Grove and voice their concerns this Wednesday at the Sailing Club.

The new CVS would replace a Shell gas station at SW 27 Avenue and US1 – the entrance to Coconut Grove. Neighbors feel the lot should be used for something special and not another unattractive commercial building, according to Coconut Grove Grapevine.

Residents are also concerned about how the building will address the street, as Miami’s new zoning laws require that the building be placed at the corner of the site — making it particularly prominent.

The meeting is being called by the Coconut Grove Park Homeowners Association. [Coconut Grove Grapevine]Christopher Cameron
