Hurricane Season or Not, Coral Gables Less Impacted by Flooding

Anyone who has spent time in Downtown Miami, Brickell or Miami Beach knows that the streets can resemble lakes even with just a little summer rain – let alone a tropical storm or hurricane.

Flooding and drainage issues can make it impossible for commuters to get around. The construction booms in Downtown Miami and Brickell have made it extremely difficult to complete the necessary infrastructure upgrades. This is not the case in Coral Gables, home to luxury residential project Merrick Manor.

The City of Coral Gables continues to do a tremendous job protecting the city from overbuilding – especially in residential areas. That has allowed the drainage systems to operate with optimal efficiency, helping residents and professionals get around Coral Gables easily.

Merrick Manor benefits greatly from its inland location within Coral Gables. The Astor Companies is developing the project on a site with significantly higher elevation than many other projects in Miami-Dade County.

Throughout hurricane season, the Merrick Manor team will share a series of blog posts and videos about the different features that make the project second-to-none when it comes to weathering a storm. Make sure to visit the project blog, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn pages so you do not miss any important updates.

Located at 301 Altara Avenue, the 10-story, 227-residence Merrick Manor is located just steps away from the luxurious Shops at Merrick Park. Construction of Merrick Manor will be completed in 2018.

Astor recently unveiled the finished model residences at Merrick Manor. Tours of the model residences can be scheduled through the ONE Sotheby’s International Realty sales team.

For pricing and other information about the residences at Merrick Manor, call (305) 779-6870 or visit the project Sales Gallery at 4200 Laguna Street, which is located directly across the street from the project site.
