When driving through many areas that are loosely referred to as Greater Miami, a visitor can easily wander in and out of small pockets and not even know they’ve crossed through different towns. Until they arrive in Coral Gables. Instantly recognizable as a history-infused, architecturally meaningful city, Coral Gables is unique in the South Florida landscape. This was no accident. Instead it was the meticulous planning and all-encompassing vision of city developer, George Merrick. According to the Coral Gables’ city website, in 1925 Merrick drew from the Garden City and City Beautiful movements of the 19th and early 20th century to create one of the nation’s first fully-planned communities. Incorporating secluded residential enclaves and commercial areas inspired by the architectural style of the Mediterranean Revival Style, Merrick envisioned a city that would offer every amenity to its residents and at the same time would become a center for international business. His advertisements sometimes read, “Mediterranean Homes in the American Tropics.” -
