GIRALDA AVENUE CONSTRUCTION – from June 12, 2017 to June 25, 2017

The work being done this week is repetitive. Installation of pavers will continue east until completion. Bridalveil trees have been installed on the northeast corner of the street. Also, pavers have been installed on the east plaza and will continue with installation to the west. We will continue to open paved areas as they are completed. Date Palms at the center of Giralda have been installed, catenary poles have been installed and catenary cables are to continue with installation for new lighting. 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.

OUTDOOR DINING:

The City is developing a Sidewalk Cafe Plan that will govern outdoor dining locations, furniture options, fees, and other related items on the new streets. The Plan is scheduled for a vote before the City Commission on May 30, 2017, and will be shared with you upon its adoption.

In the meantime, outdoor dining on the newly opened streets is prohibited. The outdoor dining that is taking place on Saturdays on Giralda Plaza is being done as a special event called Giralda Alfresco, and is restricted to only that location and on those dates.

While we know that you are anxious to start activating the outdoor dining areas, you are strongly encouraged to wait until the Sidewalk Cafe Plan is released, your permit is in hand, and the City has taken control of the streets from the Contractor. Any furniture that you purchase without the City’s review and approval is at your own risk, and may not be allowed. Any merchant placing outdoor furniture on the street without a permit will be cited. Other outdoor activities, such as amplified music, tents, retail sales, signage, etc., are also prohibited at this time, unless otherwise approved by the City as a special event.
