To commemorate its collaboration with noted design firm Interiors by Steven G., the developer of Merrick Manor recently hosted a small get-together at the project’s sales gallery with design presentations and light fare.

About 50 brokers, designers and Coral Gables socialites — including Evelio Medina, CEO of the Downtown Miami & Brickell Chamber of Commerce — gathered at the Merrick Manor sales gallery at 4311 Ponce De Leon Boulevard to catch a glimpse of Steven G’s work for the project.

The designer gave a presentation showcasing his plans for Merrick Manor’s lobby lounge, club lounge, business center, gym, pool deck and other common areas. Between talks and schmoozing, guests snacked on hors d’oeuvre like steak skewers, prime beef sliders, cheeses, fruits and “Jurassic shrimp” — probably not actually from the Jurassic period, though.

Merrick Manor, developed by Henry Torres’ Astor Companies, launched sales in 2013, broke ground in November and has since sold more than half of its 227 units. The project is also slated to bring roughly 20,000 square feet of retail space to Coral Gables when it’s completed in 2018.

Units at the development range in size from 550 square feet to more than 3,000 square feet, with prices varying between the high $400,000s to more than $1 million. — Sean Stewart-Muniz
