New plans have been revealed of the $20 million renovation of the long shutterred and abandoned Coconut Grove Playhouse.
Plans approved by the Historic Preservation Board in April included tearing down the existing 1,100 theater, but preserving the front v shaped building along Main Highway. The front building and new modern theater would be separated by an open courtyard. The front building would include ground level retail as the original plans in 1926 by Richard Kiehnel.
Also included in the plans are a five story parking garage to be run by Miami Parking Authority and 32 loft apartments.
An appeal against the plans will be heard before Miami Commissioners on October 26th.
