As demolition begins at The Chart House in Coconut Grove to make way for a new mixed used development called The Harbour. The building sat empty for almost two years since closing in November 2015, which was delayed because of litigation. 

Built in 1982 by architect Joe Lancor of Hawaii, The Chart House had a unique design that featured wood panelling on the ceiling with large glass windows overlooking Biscayne Bay. There were three large sunlight windows on the roof of the building - one in the middle and two long windows on the West and East side of the restaurant. The interior had a distinct green carpet throughout the dining area.

Construction on The Harbour in Coconut Grove is expected to start next month in July, according to Miami Today.

The Harbour will have two restaurants, entertainment event space, marina with 400 boat slips and a public baywalk. A new two story parking garage with 333 spaces will be built, which site work has already started.

The site is currently home to the restaurant Scotty's Landing (Grove Bay Grill) and The Chart House which closed in November 2015. Those two buildings will be demolished soon and replaced with The Harbour.

The Harbour was approved by voters in a 2013 referendum and was supposed to begin construction at the end of 2015, but was held up by litigation. 

Scotty's Landing Now Grove Bay Grill

The beloved restaurant and bar of Coconut Grove - Scotty's Landing - has now changed ownership and is now called Grove Bay Grill, according to The Coconut Grove Grapevine.

The new ownership is Grove Bay Hospitality Group and they plan on making improvements to the kitchens and bathrooms of the restaurant located right on the Bay.

The Chart House next door is reportedly already closed and plans are still underway for the development of the site.

The End Of Scotty's Landing?

On August 12th, 2015 Scotty's Landing in Coconut Grove was given 60 days notice to move out of the building in documents obtained by Crespogram. 

On October 12, The Grove Harbour Investment Group, led by Geraldo Leyva and Eduardo J Garcia plan on taking control of Scotty's Landing after years of legal battle over the site. However, this does not necessary mean that Scotty's will close right away after the 60 day notice. The Miami Herald states that, "the Grove Bay partners plan to operate some of the existing businesses for at least several months, which some believe is motivated more by existing profits than by a push to develop." 

The Grove Harbour Investment Group won the bid to develop the site, which will include restaurants, public pier, boat storage and restoration of the old Pan Am hangars. This was approved by voters in a November 2013 referendum and requires the group to invest $18 million into the site and $5 million into a parking garage. 

According to the Miami Herald, Commissioner Marc Sarnoff said, "he’s been told that the developer plans to begin some demolition before the end of the year, and start work on the marina in the first quarter of next year."
