Miracle Mile

Miracle-Mile

The downtown commercial district, including Miracle Mile, was designed by George Merrick, boasted that every business in Coral Gables was less than a two-block walk. In the Spring of 2016, Miracle Mile underwent a $21 million street-scape design update headed by the New York-based architecture firm Cooper Robertson. The new concept includes wider sidewalks and curb-less street edges lined with low stones and greenery. The area is now one of South Florida's most sought-after shopping destinations.


"The Traditional Building Conference never fails to provide vital and timely material for the historic building architect."
                                                                 -Andrew Jerome Cannata, AIA

“The variety of technical vs. artistic talent was great!… I really liked the new format, had better connections with the vendors and got to know fellow attendees and presenters”

“Excellent speakers, informative, engrossing topics for a room full of architects.”

“Engaging as well as ‘Big Picture’”

“One of the very best seminar topics I have ever experienced. A real treat and changed the way I think about design.”

"Easily the best FOOD I've ever had at a conference."
