About Coral Gables
The City of Coral Gables, an elegantly laid out and pedestrian friendly community, is located in Miami-Dade County, southwest of the intriguing Downtown Miami. According to a United States Census Bureau conducted in 2005, the city maintained a population of 42,871. Since 2005, Coral Gables has had a tremendous population growth and will only continue to prosper and progress in its urban sprawl. Coral Gables is a charming city with beautifully sculpted and omnipresent flora and fauna, endearing boutiques and architectural resplendence. Among its historic aspects, the city is also home to the University of Miami, with an ultra-vibe atmosphere surrounding the college.
Being one of the first master planned communities in South Florida, Coral Gables has earned a stellar reputation as well as prefigured the development of the gated community, and the home owners association. Developed by George Edgar Merrick during the Florida land boom in the 1920’s, the city’s layout and architectural design is extremely reflective of the Mediterranean Revival Styles found in Andalusian communities in Spain. Winsome scenery, tropical topography, equatorial climate and attractive outdoor parks, gardens and recreational facilities are in abundance throughout Coral Gables.
The design of the downtown commercial districts is four blocks wide, and more than two miles long, with the commercial sector bisecting the business district. Prior to its expanding populace, Coral Gables used to have an electric trolley system, which was reconstructed in 2003 to run down the entirety of Ponce de Leon Boulevard. Downtown is not only splendid due to its historic districts and sightseeing, but is also cohesive in its detail, color, and architectural aesthetics.
The city provides outstanding municipal services, including an accredited Police Department, an outstanding Fire Department, and a Class 1 Building Division. Also, Coral Gables has been named a Tree City USA for the last 26 consecutive years by the National Arbor Foundation, and rated highly by Travel and Leisure Magazine for its hiking, bike paths, public tennis courts, crystal pools, and Matheson Hammock Park and Marina.
Being the home of the University of Miami, Coral Gables enjoys many college sports such as UM Hurricane football, baseball and basketball games. The University was also named among the “Best Colleges in America” by the U.S News and World Report.
An excellent quality of life, outstanding municipal services, convenient mass transit systems, exponential growth, and a diversified economy make Coral Gables an enticing and desirable place to work, live, and vacation.
