The owners of 5450 SW 72 St. (known to everyone as Sunset Dr.) have requested a zoning change from single family to semi-professional office district. This change is incompatible with the family neighborhood in High Pines & must not be allowed to happen. Once one change occurs it becomes easier for a second to happen & before you know it Sunset Drive will look like Bird Road. Take time to look at the nice homes adjacent to 5450 Sunset Dr....Continue Reading!

Last Monday I had dinner at Barrio Latino, the newest addition to Downtown South Miami's restaurant scene (actually it is located at 1559 Sunset Dr., Coral Gables). I had one of the ceviche dishes with my wife, and it was to die for. The real surprise was the staff who couldn't have been nicer or more efficient. Today I spoke with Astrid Ehrenstein, the restaurant manager, who mentioned that customer service as well as food will be the hallmarks of...Continue Reading!

This is not a scientific study conducted by an esteemed economist , but rather my drive through of the Ponce Davis, High Pines, & Platinum Triangle section of South Coral Gables looking for construction activity. Before the recession contractors & "spec" builders were everywhere either remodeling older homes or tearing them down . Well times have changed, & I could only find 13 sites (I excluded the homes where construction efforts apparently had stopped). In another 18 months or so...Continue Reading!
