Office in the Grove To Have Hearing For Historic Designation

Office in the Grove

In October 2016, a demolition permit was filed for the Office in the Grove located at 2669 S. Bayshore Drive in Coconut Grove, which was purchased by Mast Capital in April 2014 for $29.5 million.

The nine story hexagon office tower was built in 1972 and was designed by architect Kenneth Treister who also designed the Shoppes at Mayfair in Coconut Grove. The Office in the Grove has a landscape berm, which was meant to hide the parking and have the first three floors open.

The non-profit group Docomomo / US Florida  applied to the City of Miami Historic and Environmental Preservation Board to declare the building historic and prevent it from demolition. The date is set for Tuesday, September 5th. Hearing starts at 3 p.m. at Miami City Hall, 3500 Pan American Dr., Miami, FL 33133.
