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 development 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 has developed the building on a site with significantly higher elevation than many other developments in Miami-Dade County.

Merrick Manor is the only brand-new, move-in ready condominium offering in Coral Gables. Located at 301 Altara Avenue, the 10-story, 227-residence Merrick Manor’s pet-friendly amenities and lifestyle truly cannot be beat. Merrick Manor also has a Zillow Walk Score of 77, making it “very walkable.”

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices EWM Realty is the exclusive residential sales and marketing representative for Merrick Manor.
