Merrick Manor Extremely Well-Positioned to Withstand Storms, Flooding

Among the many aspects of Merrick Manor that appeal to buyers is the fact that the site of the Coral Gables luxury residential project is uniquely suited to resist flooding and other storm activity.

The Astor Companies is developing Merrick Manor on an inland site that has a significantly higher elevation than many other projects around Miami. When Merrick Manor is completed later this year, the lobby will be at an elevation of 13.17’ NGVD (National Geodetic Vertical Datum). In other words, the lowest point of Merrick Manor will still be more than 13 feet above the baseline for ground elevations.

For comparison purposes, the minimum elevation in the City of Coral Gables is 5.5’ NGVD. Miami-Dade County has a minimum elevation requirement of 7’ NGVD.

Astor Companies has given strong consideration to hurricane safety in the planning and construction of Merrick Manor. The company is going above and beyond to ensure Merrick Manor residents stay safe and connected in the event of a major storm.

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 just 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.
