Coral Gables Real EstateLocated at the entrance to the property is Boabab tree. This tree has also been called boab, boaboa, bottle tree, upside-down tree, monkey bread tree and the tree of life. There are nine different species native to Madagascar, the African mainland, Australia, and the Arabian Peninsula. What makes these trees so fascinating is that they can reach heights of 100 or so feet and with a massive trunk which can grow to 36 feet or so in diameter. One tree has been recorded to have had a diameter of 154 feet. These trees can reach several thousand years of age. It acts like a giant succulent. 80% of its trunk is water and so depending on the size of the tree, Boabab’s are able to store as much as 32,000 gallons of water which helps it to survive in dry areas. The bark and flesh of the tree are soft, fibrous and fire-resistant. It can be used to weave rope and cloth. It is also valuable to make various medicines as well as soap, rubber and glue.

You can find some of these trees throughout South Florida including 1 Casuarina and David Fairchild Tropical Gardens.

The New Miami Science Museum

Posted by on Aug 6, 2015 in Miami Real Estate | Comments Off on The New Miami Science Museum

miami real estateAs new Frost Science Museum rises, closing date set for old site.

Article by the Miami Herald

Even as he looks forward to the 2016 opening of Miami’s new science wonderland, Mark Bennett fondly remembers the day he was surprised by the area’s infatuation with space.

Mars was making its closest approach to Earth in 60,000 years on the nights of Aug. 26 and 27, 2003. And residents of Miami-Dade — thousands of them — flocked to the Miami Science Museum, where Bennett is manager of the Planetarium and guest experiences, to get the best view.

“It was crazy; they were, like, lining up down U.S. 1,” he said. “They kept coming and coming.”

The museum stayed open until 4 a.m., hours later than planned, Bennett said.

Memories like that and so many more have Bennett feeling a mix of emotions as the museum, now known as the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science, gets ready to leave its longtime Coconut Grove home in preparation for a move to fancy new digs in downtown Miami’s Museum Park.

“I am very nostalgic,” he said. “I literally spent 27 years inside of this building — actually a little bit more than that.”

miami real estateTo bid the building at 3280 S. Miami Ave. goodbye, the museum has scheduled a series of events for August, including two nights of “the best of the best of the laser shows” on Aug. 7 and 8; a members-only hour at 9 a.m. on the morning of Aug. 23; an evening of Science Art Cinema on Aug. 29 and free admission for kids with paid adults on Aug. 29 and 30. On the final day, Aug. 30, the museum will hold demonstrations and shows and stay open until 10 p.m.

“We hope that everyone will come out for one last visit to tour the museum and experience it for one last time,” Bennett said.

Programming will continue in the community after the facility closes, and the new $300 million home is scheduled to open in summer of 2016. The opening date has not been set, but employees are already looking forward to the possibilities at the new space.

maimi real estate“We’re going to be able to do things that we never even imagined doing here,” Bennett said. The Planetarium, for example, will feature a full-dome projection system with technology that will allow reproductions of the night sky and display footage captured by NASA, video from inside the human body or images from under the sea.

While the construction site adjacent to the Pérez Art Museum Miami is still very much a work in progress, some major milestones have been completed. The Planetarium dome is topped off, though the building still needs to be sealed.

The giant Gulf Stream aquarium took shape in December during a more than 25-hour concrete pour.

miami real estateDuring a tour of the site on Wednesday, more than three dozen workers were spread on top of the Living Core aquarium area, working on the roof. Inside the Planetarium, seats were being installed. In the future home of the Baptist Health People & Science Gallery, one slightly sunken area already is reserved for an energy dance floor.

Staircases, ramps and walls are up — but alas, still no air conditioning or elevators. “Be careful with the rebar” and “Watch yourself” were common refrains from tour guides.

“It’s going really well,” said museum president and CEO Gillian Thomas in an interview. “There’s a lot happened. Every time I go, there’s new pipes and pumps.”

miami real estateA waterproof membrane still needs to be installed in the 500,000-gallon Gulf Stream tank before the 30-foot-wide window is installed at the bottom in the fall.

Fundraising is also edging toward its goal. In addition to $165 million in county bond money, the museum has raised another $103 million from private donations, foundations and corporations. The biggest chunk of that private money comes from entrepreneur Phillip Frost and his wife Patricia, a retired educator, who have donated a total of $45 million.

The museum’s goal is to have a total of $300 million — “or even keep going,” Thomas said. “There’s always things we want to add on.”

The Collection Residence of Coral Gables

Posted by on Aug 6, 2015 in Coral Gables Real Estate | Comments Off on The Collection Residence of Coral Gables

Heritage Inspired Craftsmanship: The Collection Residence

coral gables real estate
The architecture of The Collection Residences draws its inspiration from the rich traditions of Coral Gables. From the generous proportions of the area’s beautiful Mediterranean architecture, to the simple lines and fresh thinking of modern design, The Collection Residences integrates effortlessly with its stylish Gables neighborhood.

“My approach to design is to envision a single object, conceptualizing “full” architecture in which the exterior and interior are as one. When designing The Collection Residences, I dove deeply into the rich history of Coral Gables and translated its traditional architecture to work cohesively in a contemporary environment. The design for The Collection Residences is based on the concept of fluid, continuous space. Contemporary forms are deliberately combined with the use of refined, classic materials like marble and stucco. The coupling of classic and contemporary details provides comforting traditional aesthetics with modern forms and finishes of perfect proportion.”
Massimo Iosa Ghini, Interior Architect
