Just when you thought the commercial areas of Coral Gables could not get any denser, another mid-rise mixed-use complex is rising. This one, called The Standard at Coral Gables, broke ground on a 1.78-acre piece of land between San Remo and Venera Avenues on Riviera Park.
Right down the street from the Whole Foods Market, the building will rise nine stories, hold 147 apartments, have 21,929 square feet of new restaurants and 5,482 square feet of retail. It will have a pool deck on the fifth floor, and a pedestrian path through the building. The project is being built by an affiliate of Georgia-based Landmark Development but designed by Miami-based Bermello Ajamil & Partners.
