The stone bollards at the west side have been installed and the west side has been completed. The east side of Giralda will have a similar look.

The street is closed to vehicular traffic; however, pedestrian access to the businesses will be maintained at all times for the duration of construction. Water barriers have been installed in order to separate the work zone from pedestrian traffic. Temporary crossings have been installed and will be relocated as construction continues.

IMPORTANT GIRALDA NEWS:

The City of Coral Gables Commission voted to close Giralda Plaza to cars as a pilot project for a two-year period, as requested by the majority of businesses and property owners on the street. A dining plan is in the works to provide greater clarity with respect to outdoor seating locations, furniture and fees.
