The Coral Gables Police Department has opened a substation on the ground floor of Merrick Manor, a new luxury condominium project in the Village of Merrick Park section. About a half dozen police personnel are assigned to the 874-square-foot office which was donated by the developer Astor Companies.
For Merrick Manor, the police presence complements other critical 24-hour security measures such as strategically placed cameras and a covered and monitored parking garage. The building has also taken extraordinary measures to keep residents safe and protected during a hurricane.
“We want our residents to feel safe and secure at all times,” said Henry Torres, president and CEO of The Astor Companies. “Having a regular police presence in our building should not only bring additional peace of mind to residents, but our neighbors too.”
