The redevelopment bid for two city-owned garages in Coral Gables could head to a vote as early as Jan. 24.

Out of the five proposals, the top two are from Coral Gables City Center and TC Gables LLC. They would redevelop the city’s parking garages at 245 and 345 Andalusia Avenue into mixed-use projects with high-tech parking systems, retail space and apartment units.

TC Gables’ development team includes Terranova, Zom and Gibson Development with Arquitectonica, while Coral Gables City Center is a partnership between the Allen Morris Company and the Related Group with designs by Zyscovich Architects.

Following an evaluation committee meeting in December, city staff is putting together its recommendation for the Coral Gables Commission with a vote that could happen as early as Jan. 24, the Miami Herald reported. Both groups of developers presented new renderings and plans that have already been ranked by the committee. The proposal by Related and Allen Morris, who are partnering together on projects like SLS Lux, is currently ranked higher, according to the Herald.

The Coral Gables City Center project features retail space on the ground floor, apartment units above the parking (featuring a smart parking system) and foyers. The garages would be 16 and 17 stories tall, with a combined 27,800 square feet of commercial space, 140,000 square feet of office space, nearly 1,600 parking spaces and 244 luxury apartments.

The TC Gables project would have nine and 16 stories, a paseo, a combined 328 apartments, more than 1,800 parking spaces, and 50,700 square feet of retail space.

Both would be designed with the Mediterranean-style architecture Coral Gables is known for. [Miami Herald] – Katherine Kallergis
