Merrick Manor Mirth

A recent private event held at the Merrick Manor Club Lounge celebrated the completion of Merrick Manor, the 227-unit mid-rise residence that is raising the bar of excellence in the Merrick Park neighborhood. Built adjacent to the Shops of Merrick Park, the new residential enclave is the latest entry in the Gables’ trend toward luxury urban lifestyles. Seen here, from left to right, is Mauricio Umansky, Sasha Ezquerra, Steven G. and Henry Torres inside the Club Lounge. Umansky is CEO and founder of the international real estate brokerage The Agency, which is now handling all sales for the building; Ezquerra is The Agency’s managing director; Seven G. is the renowned interior designer; and Torres is the developer of Merrick Manor. Located at 301 Altara Ave., the 10-story complex (20,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space) is the largest condominium project built in the Gables in more than a decade.
