Storm Safety, Connectivity Top of Mind in Miami as Hurricane Season Begins

Hurricane season is officially underway, and the subject is on the minds of Miami residents and those who are looking to relocate to Miami. The active 2017 season and Hurricane Irma’s widespread impact served as important wake-up calls for everyone.

In the real estate world, homeowners and prospective buyers took notice of how the newer condominium buildings fared much better than single-family homes when Irma struck South Florida last fall. In some cases, the condominium buildings never lost power. That certainly resonated with single-family homeowners in Coral Gables, which was among the last cities in South Florida to have power fully restored.

Developer The Astor Companies has given strong consideration to hurricane safety in the planning and construction of its luxury residential project Merrick Manor in Coral Gables. Astor 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.
