Gables Columbus Center apartment building at 60 Minora Ave. in Coral Gables

Atlanta-based Gables Residential opened its newly built 19-story apartment building in Coral Gables with monthly rents starting at $2,306.

The 200-unit building at 60 Minorca Avenue, called Gables Columbus Center, has apartments ranging in size from 770 to more than 1,500 square feet.

Gables Residential, a real estate investment trust, built common-area amenities that include a mid-level swimming pool and deck with views of Miami.

Tenants also will share an outdoor fireplace area for lounging or hosting guests, plus a 24-hour automated package room and electric vehicle charging stations.

Penthouse residents will have access to a rooftop lounge with hotel-style perks.

Gables Residential got a $56 million loan in early 2017 to finance construction of Gables Columbus Center.

Architecture firm Behar Font & Partners designed the apartment building, and the development’s interior designer was CallisonRTKL.

The Atlanta-based developer is familiar with Coral Gables: In 2013, Gables Residential opened a 248-unit apartment building there, called Gables-Ponce, with a 24,000-square-foot Epicure Market grocery store. – Mike Seemuth
