Demolition has started on two buildings located at 3480 Main Highway in Coconut Grove.
The two buildings being demolished were built in 1937 and 2010. Plans are to build a five story class A office building with a rooftop restaurant. The site is located next to the abandoned Coconut Grove Playhouse.
The properties were purchased by Optimum Development USA in 2014 for $8.5 million. Optimum Development USA also purchased the Starlite Motel in Brickell for $25 million in 2014.
