Coconut Grove Playhouse Plan Denied By Miami Preservation Board

The Abandoned Coconut Grove Playhouse

Miami’s Preservation Board voted 6-4 to deny a $20 million plan approved two years ago to restore the Coconut Grove Playhouse.

In April 2017, the Preservation Board approved plans that would demolish the auditorium and theater, but restore the front V shaped part of the building. The plans called for replacing the 1100 seat theater with a 300 seat theater and a new parking garage.

The County may appeal the decision.

The Coconut Grove Playhouse has sat abandoned for almost 13 years, since April 2006.
