Greetings Coral Gables! This has been a year of incredible transition in The City Beautiful. Our updated and upgraded downtown is thriving and fully open for business. Engaging public art dots the new streetscape, bringing broad smiles, as well as endless #selfies on social media. A multitude of new and exciting restaurants and retail shops have opened that continue to raise our profile in the South Florida foodie community. And, most importantly, we have reason to celebrate all that is shiny and new along our City’s Main Street: Miracle Mile. With our centennial less than a decade away, the time is perfect to think about our future as a Chamber and City. This latest edition of our comprehensive guide to all things Coral Gables contemplates just that and also features a new publishing partner, HCP Media. Our annual Chamber magazine and membership directory is just what you will need to help you navigate Coral Gables, as well as get further acquainted with the people and places (and businesses!) that shape what we love most about our City Beautiful. Since our founding by the visionary George E. Merrick in 1925, the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce has been dedicated to making our community an epicenter for business, including a significant nod to the global marketplace, while diligently serving our resident, employee and visitor populations. With a focus on balanced growth and robust job creation — juxtaposed alongside a superior lifestyle designed for living, working, learning and playing — the Chamber leads the way for our business community.  The Official Community & Visitor Guide of the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce is published each summer and serves as a convenient, one-stop resource to everything we adore about the Gables. Listings include information on hotels, recreation, restaurants, shopping, education, health care, culture and more.  Plus, our partners at HCP Media have upgraded our photo library and pumped up the volume on the content, providing a more relevant take on what is happening right now in our City Beautiful, as well as a crystal ball view into the near future. And, of course, if you need phone numbers or email addresses for our

elected officials, demographic information on the City, restaurant and retail listings or insight into cultural offerings — it is all here, right at your fingertips. Enjoy detailed information about our most delicious restaurants, amazing stores, unique attractions and the vast array of cultural arts opportunities. There is no more complete resource on the amazing amenities available in Coral Gables than our Chamber’s annual magazine. Most importantly, you will find detailed information on each of our GEM Level, Trustee and business members — the companies that have made a significant investment in our great Chamber and amazing City. We hope that you will recognize and honor their commitment by patronizing their establishments throughout the coming year and trusting them with your business. To all of our visitors, we welcome you and hope you enjoy The City Beautiful. Of course, we invite you to return again and again. To our residents, we thank you for your support and continued patronage. To businesses seeking a new market to expand into, we say join us as we help you make Coral Gables your new home! And to our business community, we salute you and value your enduring commitment to making this the very best neighborhood in all of South Florida to do business.  Lastly, we encourage you to take advantage of the renowned restaurants, world-class shopping, historic sites, and outstanding educational and health care institutions, as well as the international flair that makes Coral Gables special and unique. It’s Game On as we continue to work collaboratively to make Coral Gables the premier destination to do business, raise a family, enrich your lives and immerse yourself in unparalleled culture!   Warmly,

Mark A. Trowbridge President & CEO Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce

Greetings from The City Beautiful Indeed, Coral Gables is a beautiful city. It’s brimming with convenient amenities for residents that enhance their quality of life and provides engaging activities in a desirable downtown. In addition, it has a vibrant business community. These are some of the many reasons why people choose to make Coral Gables their home and place of business. With more than 150 multinational corporations, Coral Gables is known as the “Gateway to Latin America.” Additionally, small businesses thrive and represent an integral part of our economy — which makes us proud. The good news is others are taking notice. The City was recently ranked the third best city in the nation to start a new business by Go.Verizon.com. Our community is home to some of the leading companies innovating in technology, media, aviation, international commerce and other industries. We have an international professional population and a highly qualified, talented workforce, as well as ease of connectivity to the world. We are home to top-rated schools and an acclaimed international magnet program in Miami-Dade County. The City also has some of the nation’s top-ranked

research universities and business schools, including the University of Miami and the Executive MBA program from Northwestern University’s prestigious Kellogg School of Management. I encourage you to keep reading the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce’s City Beautiful Magazine. It’s full of reasons why so many have chosen to put this City at the center of their professional and personal lives.

Warmest Regards,

Merrick, we have far surpassed anything he could have ever imagined.

Domino Effect BY FASHIONING THE DRAB SLABS BENEATH THE UNIVERSITY METRORAIL STATION INTO OVERSIZED DOMINO GAME TILES, THE CONCRETE LANDSCAPES MIAMI INSTALLATION CREATED BY AUSTRALIAN ARTIST BO DROGA HAS TURNED THE ERSTWHILE LACKLUSTER AREA INTO A PLAYFUL AND INSPIRING SPACE.

NOW, THE UNIVERSITY GREEN, NESTLED BETWEEN SEVERAL OF THE SCHOOL’S MOST PROMINENT BUILDINGS, IS PUNCTUATED BY MORE THAN TWO DOZEN SCULPTURES.

As of April 2019, the parallel rows of pillars that support the tracks adjacent to Ponce de Leon Boulevard by the University of Miami have been carefully painted in black and white by Droga and a team of 12 volunteers. Because they vary in height — from 14 to 18 feet — part of the illusion is to make them all appear uniform in size. A total of 48 pillars hold up the segment of Metrorail tracks between Stanford Drive and University Station. When the project is completed, visitors will be in for an additional treat, as Droga says he has included a message within the pattern of the domino pieces.

Artscapes Downtown Coral Gables is home to many of the City’s public art installations. Whimsical projects like this summer’s Sun Stories (on the cover) enliven Giralda Plaza, while permanent sculptures adorn Miracle Mile and surrounding streets. Take a leisurely self-guided tour and see what you discover!

THE TRUTH IS MOVING WITH HANK WILLIS THOMAS’ CONCEPTUAL WORK SPRINKLED THROUGHOUT CORAL GABLES, THE CITY FOLLOWED THE ARTIST’S STUDY OF THOUGHT AT THE INTERSECTION OF IDENTITY, HISTORY AND POP CULTURE, AND INVITED THE PUBLIC IN ON THE CONVERSATION. The Truth Is I Welcome You is a two-part installation that consists of three-dimensional speech and thought bubbles on display along Miracle Mile and brightly colored sculptures made of rolled steel placed in key locations across the city. While the overhead bubbles on Miracle Mile are temporary, the aim is to provoke permanent shifts in thought. The signs appear in 22 languages to reflect the local population and are excerpts from the poem “The Truth Is I Am You” written by Thomas in collaboration with Ryan Alexiev. The steel sculpture benches are now a permanent fixture of the City’s growing public art landscape.

That is, the industry itself continues to expand, but the spaces where people get fit have shrunk — much like their patrons’ waistlines. Intimate studios, clubs and “boxes” have taken over the workout scene offering well-curated services that cater to a crowd seeking results that are measurable, enduring and balanced. Take F45, for example. Specifically designed to provide functional training in 45 minutes, it addresses members’ fitness goals and maximizes use of their time. The boutique gym also promotes a team mentality, helping individuals reach personal fitness goals while encouraging a sense of community wellness. Other standouts in Coral Gables include Old Bull Athletics — which specializes in rehab and corporate wellness — Brooklyn Fitboxing and Equinox.

PARK LIFE A big part of the appeal of cycling is simply being outside, breathing fresh air and feeling the sunshine. In the Gables, those perks don’t end when you step off your bike. Cycle over to Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, and you’ll have discovered a uniquely spectacular oasis. Plus, you get a discount on admission if you ride your bike there! The expansive, 83-acre park houses an impressive collection of plants from around the world. Aside from its educational and conservation value, the abundant plant life is expertly arranged around serene ponds connected by scenic pathways. Nature lovers can easily spend an entire day wandering the grounds, especially during one of the garden’s popular annual events, like its chocolate and mango festivals. For another inimitable outdoor escape, you can pedal on over to the Venetian Pool. Opened in 1924, this historic swimming

ith a nickname like The City Beautiful, a destination sets expectations high for fetching scenery, spectacular architecture and exotic greenery, and when it comes to Coral Gables, the moniker fits. Whether you’re looking for a natural sanctuary, a cultural experience or some retail therapy, many of the city’s best attractions are easily accessible on a bike — and getting there is half the fun!

hole started out as a quarry where architects would source coral for projects being built all over the city. The aquifer-fed pool has since earned a spot on the National Register of Historic Places and regularly ranks among the most beautiful swimming pools in the nation. With design features like two waterfalls, a grotto and a Venetian-style bridge, a day here is perfect for those who enjoy a dash of history and culture with their splash time. Just throw your bathing suit and towel in a backpack and hit the road. And don’t forget the sunscreen! REFUEL For historic elegance, there’s no place in South Florida quite like The Biltmore Hotel. And you don’t necessarily have to spend the night there to appreciate it (though you really should). Biking to the stately hotel takes you through lovely residential areas before you arrive at the entrance of the palatial National Historic Landmark. Park your bike and wander into its top-notch Palme d’Or restaurant, which offers seating indoors

and outside in an open-air courtyard. The restaurant was a James Beard Semifinalist in 2018 and has been awarded the AAA Five Diamond rating. If you’d rather have a light bite, head to The Cellar Club Bar®. Even if you’re not craving a snack, a stroll through the grounds is a must. With plenty of artifacts on display — from its 1920s founding through celebrity appearances into the present — it’s like walking through a historical gallery. If your ride is more downtown focused, then head to Bulla Gastrobar. Inspired by the gastrobars in Spain, Bulla focuses on culturally rich ingredients and an authentic pantry to create traditional Spanish dishes that range from light tapas to the kinds of delicious stews and grilled meats best paired with bold reds.

Bulla is Spanish slang for chatter, which is appropriate for the popular gastropub, where you can park your bike for a delicious break.

RENTING THE GOODS No matter what you plan to do on your cycling adventure, there’s one thing you’ll definitely need: a bike! Part of what makes Coral Gables a perfect place for pedaling is its convenient bike shops. Suncycling, a beloved South Florida chain, operates a friendly and accessible store on Ponce de Leon Boulevard, offering rentals of bikes built for the road, for gravel, hybrid bikes, mountain bikes and even triathlon bikes. The shop also sells an array of twowheelers, including ebikes, fat bikes and bicycles for children. If you’re in need of replacement parts, like tires or pedals, or seek accessories like helmets, lights and cycling apparel, this is the place to find it. Once you’re outfitted, just hop on your bike, pedal toward all the possibilities Coral Gables has to offer. Enjoy the ride!

BUY OUT But don’t leave the Miracle Mile area just yet. This “miraculous” stretch of Coral Way is designed for window shoppers — and unless your bike is towing a trailer for your purchases, that’s exactly what you are. Sure, you could probably wear some shiny new bling from local jewelry shops Jae’s Jewelers or Snow’s Jewelers on your ride home, but the biggest business on the Mile is bridal. The street is lined with shops selling wedding gowns and other special-event attire. If you’re a fan of Say Yes to the Dress, you’ll want to slow down and enjoy the view.

TECH HUB With a wellspring of local talent and just the right attributes, Coral Gables has become fertile ground for tech businesses to grow, expand and collaborate.

L

ast year, when the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) included the smart city initiatives in Coral Gables within its Global City Teams Challenge, the announcement reflected what the local tech community has known for a while: Coral Gables is developing into a tech hot spot. Those in the industry paid attention when the city launched the Coral Gables Smart City Hub as a public platform for exploring and downloading open data, discovering and building apps, and engaging to solve important local issues.

Noting that Florida was the birthplace of household staples like air-conditioning and Gatorade — among numerous other firsts — Crain’s Chicago Business reported that tech has long been in the state’s DNA.

start a business, citing its highly educated population, along with the state’s tax friendliness. A small city with lots of college graduates is ideal according to the Verizon study, which concluded: “The smaller the city, the more room there is to grow.” LOCALLY GROWN The City’s growing reputation as a tech leader is illustrated by key players in the private sector based in Coral Gables.

Past speakers have included figures like former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell; AOL co-founder Steve Case; Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak; and former Mexican president Vicente Fox.

Programming revolves around topics such as Blockchain, artificial intelligence, M.I.T. innovators under 35; a summit focusing on women, innovation and technology; and seminars on how government and academia influence tech policy.

to amplify a city’s entrepreneurial success is to bring people of different talents and backgrounds together. It would be surprising then if a range of co-working brands weren’t represented in the City’s business ecosystem. Enter the non-traditional spaces of Pipeline, Office Edge and WeWork, whose design-forward Coral Gables venues are the stuff of corporate fantasy. Easily accessible from just about anywhere in Greater Miami, these companies provide members with an array of spaces where they can hold one-on-one meetings with business partners coming right from the airport, brainstorming sessions with otherwise

remote team members, or company gatherings to celebrate achievements or host clients. Being in the heart of downtown Coral Gables, they are in close proximity to the hundreds of international businesses and multinational corporations headquartered in the City, as well as all the restaurants that take lunch from a standard midday break to a culinary experience. Within, the offices and communal areas are outfitted with all the amenities you would associate with the shared workspace concept, from sophisticated loungers in bold colors and all the outlets you could need to cold brew and kombucha on tap. Because exchanging ideas at the water cooler is so last century.

the board. Its purpose: to give them a boost by providing access to talent, capital, markets and mentorship. Founded by Linda Rottenberg and Peter Kellner in 1997, Endeavor has launched in a series of Latin American countries, including Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Brazil and Uruguay. The organization has even expanded well beyond the Americas. In one banner year, 2004 (the same year Endeavor drew headlines when Edgar Bronfman, Jr. was named Chairman of Endeavor’s Global Board), Endeavor opened its doors in South Africa. But it was the Coral Gables office that was founded in a bid to move beyond emerging markets. And this launch represented Endeavor’s first U.S. affiliate — quite a feather in the city’s cap. With an emphasis on networking and mentorship, Endeavor is especially focused on entrepreneurs who push the workplace trends that drive today’s efficiency and are expected to become commonplace in 10 years, including smart cities, and scalable, digital jobs that can be done “anywhere, any time and on-demand.” Its active entrepreneurs come from the worlds of software, media, hospitality, education, marketing, consumer services and retail.

Cities have to have the right mix of elements to nurture and grow their tech sector, including:

o the uninitiated, real estate development might sound like a joyless job. You might envision stacks of paperwork, navigating mazes of city codes and laws, or crunching numbers on an endless spreadsheet. But according to Brent Reynolds, CEO and managing partner of NP International (NPI), building a place is about one thing: people. “There is a quote I commonly use when it comes to describing NPI’s approach to any project: ‘We’re far more passionate about creating experiences than just building structures,’” says Reynolds. “Creating a space where people feel a sense of community is top on our list of those experiences.” A mission to bring people together drives the design of Gables Station, an NPI mixed-use development project that combines residences with commercial and public spaces that’s rising in Coral Gables’ McFarland neighborhood. For starters, the general design of the project was inspired by the neighborhood itself. “After getting a deeper understanding of the rich history of the community, we

felt their story not only needed to be told but also preserved,” says Reynolds. “We produced a film on the neighborhood, entitled Graceful Voices, which was aired by PBS nationally. We further integrated their story into our Public Art curation for the open space of Gables Station.” Other efforts toward thoughtful development include organizing the design around a central area, a “natural space where people can interact organically,” according to Reynolds. From there, residents can head to a wellness center, a local shop or restaurant, or even hop on the nearby public transportation to get to other parts of town easily. “Our properties are built with the intent to bring tenants, residents and guests together to share extraordinary experiences as a familiar community,” Reynolds says. Unique to Gables Station is its integration with The Underline, a linear park and community space located beneath the Metrorail line that’s been planned by the County and is under development in sections. “The Underline will connect communities and create new environments which do not exist today for people to

developers prioritized community wishes like maintaining the Mediterranean Revival architecture of the area and making certain there was ample space for recreation, arts and culture. The Plaza also honors the unique history of its location. Originally designed by George Merrick as an area to house artisans and craftsmen, the “Crafts Section” of Coral Gables was once ruled from the Arts Center building, built circa 1925. That building still stands, and will be incorporated into The Plaza’s public space. Agave Ponce LLC, the company developing The Plaza, shares Reynolds’ community-centric philosophy. “No development can succeed without a strong partnership with the community it lives in,” reads its mission statement. According to these local developers, creating superior neighborhoods is all about balancing what already exists with an educated sense of what’s to come, which sounds much simpler than it is. But with creativity and an emphasis on quality of life, these companies are changing the way neighborhoods develop, and that is very Coral Gables!

FOOD FOR THOUGHT can reflect, learn and grow is priceless. This is truer still if that place happens to be a local business that’s also a hub of intelligent exchanges, fun events and great coffee. In Coral Gables, you can find that dynamic at the neighborhood book store or the local café. OWN THE STORY

In the early 1980s, Mitchell Kaplan wanted to create a place for like-minded people to get together for thought-provoking conversation and stimulating ideas. Hosting more than 60 author events a month in an awe-inspiring 1927 building, Books & Books grew to beyond that vision to become a point of pride for the whole City. Likewise, Café Demetrio is the kind of place that celebrates the written word and invites creativity— over drinks and bites — with its regular poetry readings and enchanting courtyard that just begs to be the place where you finally get that manuscript written.

IT’S A MIRACLE WITH A MISSION TO ENRICH SOUTH FLORIDA’S CULTURAL VITALITY WITH HIGH CALIBER PRODUCTIONS AND ENCOURAGE THE CREATION AND PRODUCTION OF NEW WORKS, THE MIRACLE THEATRE IS A MAJOR SPONSOR FOR LOCAL CREATIVES. The theater presents world premiers, including The Boy From Russia, Bombshells, Unreasonable Doubt, The Color of Desire, See Jane Run and Real Men, all written by Florida playwrights, with the last making its New York debut in the 2015 Musical Theater Festival. Last season, the company produced the critically acclaimed world premiere of Havana Music Hall, and in 2020, it will produce FUÁCATA! or a Latina’s Guide to Surviving the Universe, a collaboration between South Florida’s own Stuart Meltzer and the highly celebrated, three-time Carbonell Award-winning Cuban-American actress Elena María García. The theater is also renowned for generating licensing agreements for the newest work from New York, like the pre-Broadway production of Little Shop of Horrors, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Les Misérables, Miss Saigon, August: Osage County, In the Heights, and many others.

In the Books IN 1995, UNDER THE STEWARDSHIP OF EXECUTIVE PRODUCING DIRECTOR BARBARA S. STEIN, ACTORS’ PLAYHOUSE ENTERED A PARTNERSHIP WITH THE CITY TO RENOVATE THE HISTORIC MIRACLE THEATRE, TRANSFORMING THE ART DECO MOVIE HOUSE INTO THE COMPANY’S NEW HOME. The $8 million capital project resulted in a three-stage performance center with a 600-seat main stage, 300-seat balcony theater and 100-seat multi-purpose black box space. This partnership was the catalyst for revitalizing downtown Coral Gables, enhancing the quality of life for the community and adding to its economic prosperity with more than 150,000 patrons attending events each year. The book Miracle on the Mile archives the exemplary private/public partnership and acknowledges the contributors who made this local story possible.

BY DREW LIMSKY hen people think of the City Beautiful movement of the early 20th century, they flash to cities like Washington D.C., with its celebrated boulevards and circles. This ambitious urban planning initiative migrated to other American hubs, but the results were nowhere more successful and distinctive than in Coral Gables, with its storied, near-uniform Mediterranean Revival style. Any discussion of the nonprofit scene and the betterment of society — at the local level — must begin with the way Coral Gables looks and how it has maintained that distinctive characteristic since its incorporation in 1925. Such a fine example of urban planning, as well as the maintenance it requires, doesn’t happen by accident. One of the country’s first planned communities requires protection, both from government and its own growing population. The City’s first historic preservation ordinance, established in 1973 — and its expansions in 1984 and 1990 — led to a resident-based safeguard: the Historic Preservation Board. The Historic Preservation Association of Coral Gables, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, followed in 1991. Its goal is to

promote understanding about the historical significance of Coral Gables and its beloved aesthetic, and to make certain that its various landmarks — the De Soto Fountain, Granada Boulevard entrances, Coral Way-Granada fountains, among several others — are faithfully preserved. Smaller-scale organizations like the Coral Gables Garden Club are likewise committed to further embellishing The City Beautiful. Not only does the club provide scholarships to college students studying horticulture, but its seasonal projects include teaching children the value of trees on Arbor Day, bringing the joys of flower arranging to retirement homes and maintaining the Coral Gables Library Butterfly Garden. Coral Gables’ commitment to preserving its architecture and visual appeal is representative of its robust and responsible community-mindedness. The Coral Gables Community Foundation is a case in point: Many people and entities would like to make their philanthropic dollars work for the community, but need guidance.

The Coral Gables Community Foundation, founded in 1991, fills that role. It is the ultimate connector — linking individuals and corporations with potential beneficiaries. The nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization has awarded more than $7 million to efforts as diverse as supporting children, the disabled and the elderly, as well as bolstering cultural institutions and educational seminars. Beneficiaries have included the Coral Gables Art Cinema, the Coral Gables Museum and the Ponce Society of Young Professionals

Also based in the City is the Early Learning Coalition, which provides school readiness services for more than 50,000 children 12 years old and under (giving priority to children under five), throughout Miami-Dade and Monroe counties. In addition, the organization delivers quality education to 750 children in high-need neighborhoods. The nonprofit’s community partners include the Miami Book Fair, The Children’s Trust and the United Way of Miami-Dade. When legendary developer George Merrick created Coral Gables, he built a thousand houses for people to call home. Today, that “home” is defined by its singular beauty — and its enduring societal values.

“I wonder what Grandma is doing at The Palace tonight?” Grandkids can’t wait to see what will happen when they visit The Palace. One thing they know for sure is that Grandma won’t be sitting alone in her room in front of the TV with nothing to do. The Palace has been honored as America’s #1 senior community for its social calendar and activities, and you’d be amazed how our entertainment program rivals a cruise ship. Every week there are live shows on stage, events to join in, classes to learn and songs to sing. We even have a free Happy Hour every day. Best of all, with so much to do, the whole family is invited to join us. And they do! Every week our dining room is filled with big family tables. They celebrate birthdays and holidays with us. For many of them, The Palace becomes the center of a new family life together. And sometimes, they even get to watch Grandma win a dance contest.
