Founded in 1925, Coral Gables is the result of one man’s extraordinary vision and faithful commitment to that ideal. Designed from the outset as an international community, the physical and cultural landscape reflects the intent of its master planner. A lush tropical backdrop complemented by classic Mediterranean architecture is an ideal setting for a community alive with diversity and activity. With secluded residential enclaves and a bustling downtown, Coral Gables represents the best of everything; a delicious bite of cosmopolitan culture in the environment of a small city. As the city grows and adapts with each new generation, it strives to carry on Merrick’s dream.
