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.

The Chart House in Coconut Grove is now being demolished after the initial demolition date of September 11th was delayed because of Hurricane Irma.

Built in 1982, with 10,515 square feet, The Chart House was designed by architect Joe Lancor of Hawaii who also designed many other Chart Houses across the country.

The Chart House closed in November 2015 after 33 years to make way for a mixed use development called The Harbour that will have two restaurants, entertainment event space, marina with 400 boat slips, a public baywalk and converting the seaplane hangars into retail space. It will be developed by The Grove Bay Hospitality Group who received the contract by Miami City Commissioners in 2013. The Harbour was approved by voters in a 2013 referendum. 

The Harbour is expected to be open early 2019 and cost $80 million.

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.
