The Best Condo in Coral Gables | Coral Gables finally has a Luxury Condo
I am delighted to be able to finally say we have a luxury condo in Coral Gables…. and its name is Giralda Place.
As a Gables centric-agent I spend an awful lot of time in the Gables, going for dinner at Masa Mer, which is arguably one of the best seafood restaurants in Miami, or Zucca which is owned by the old chef of Casa Tua who set up his own place. Aside from that there is the part of Giralda Ave, which is now pedestrianized and a Friday night stroll down the street with its easy going and rather chilled out ‘european vibe’ alfresco dining aplenty is really really great. There are lots of cool shops and to be honest, it is just damn well pretty! Traditionally, the Gables is home to single family properties and honestly some of the most glamorous and extensive estates you will find anywhere in Miami. So it has typically come as a surprise that there have been no luxury condos. The city is old (not by European standards) but by Miami standards it is. So why no new luxury condos? Mainly, because the city is extremely protective over what they allow to be built. Zoning is tight and there are no air-rights to built very high Condos.
Let me caveat the description of luxury for you before we discuss the finer points.
In no specific order: Firstly, views. Now, Coral Gables does not sit on the water (obviously) but that does not mean you cannot have great city views (especially if the city is as pretty as the Gables is). Secondly, fundamental architectural features, and yes, I am talking about door heights, ipso factor ceiling heights. Third, finishes e.g. Zubzero and Wolf as opposed to GE, Monogram, Philips or Whirlpool. Fourth, the location (maybe I should have put this first). I don’t care how nice your building is, if the neighborhood sucks you are not going to be considered luxury. Location, location, location. Gables has a large element of luxury to the neighborhood – end of story! Finally, we have service: Concierge, valet, private elevators.

We have only superlatives to describe how wonderful Cris Buzolin was throughout the process of selling our townhouse in Coral Gables. We were away in the UK while the transaction was taking place and Cris handled everything-from clearing out our house, selling contents when she could, arranging the moving and storage and dealing with some very difficult problems which arose. Always patient and very willing to help in every way, Cris is a consummate professional who really cares about her clients and worked extremely hard to get the price we had asked for and make things for us as easy as she could. Nothing was too much for her to handle.Cris and Marianela (who provided additional very helpful assistance to us during the transaction) are part of the team that David Siddons has assembled.When we decided to sell our property, we contacted David and he established the framework for the transaction and ensured that everything proceeded smoothly and in accordance with our wishes. In sum, David Siddons and his team are extremely competent and professional and we are totally satisfied with the service they provided. To repeat, Cris Buzolin in particular, went way beyond what one would expect from a real estate agent. The David Siddons Group has our highest recommendation!
Fantastic group of people to work with!! David and Adriana were responsive and professional throughout the entire process. We weren't familiar with South Florida so David took us under his wing and did a fabulous job giving us a tour of select neighborhoods in South Florida and shared a great deal of information about each. We fell in love with the Botaniko community in Weston and closed the deal with Adriana. If you are buying/selling this is the team you want to work with!! Thank you guys for helping us find our dream home.
