The Astor Companies completed Merrick Manor, a 10-story building with 227 condominium units, the largest condo developments delivered in Coral Gables in nearly a decade.

Astor received a temporary certificate of occupancy for the building at 301 Altara Avenue, a short walk from the outdoor shopping mall Shops at Merrick Park.

The temporary certificate of occupancy will allow Astor to close sales of condos under contract and allow residents to move into Merrick Manor. More than 65 percent of the 227 condos are under contract.

Prices for the unsold condos range from $374,990 to $2.6 million, and they range in size from 574 square feet to 3,400 square feet. The remaining condos have one to four bedrooms, Italian cabinetry, Bosch appliances and white quartz counter tops.

Residential sales are handled by the Agency Development Group, led by managing director Sasha Ezquerra and residential sales director Esther Prat.

Amenities at Merrick Manor include 24-hour valet parking, 24-hour concierge service at the front desk, a lobby lounge, Parcel Pending lockers, a gym, swimming pool and barbecue area.

Security features include a Coral Gables Police Department substation on the ground floor.

Merrick Manor also has nearly 20,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and restaurant space marketed by Astor Real Estate Group, led by principal broker Rosa H. Radkiewicz.

Architecture firm Behar Font & Partners designed the exterior of Merrick Manor in a contemporary Mediterranean style, and the firm of Steven G. designed the lobby, common areas and model residences. – Mike Seemuth
