Grove Central is a mixed-use multi-modal project that seeks to destigmatize mass transit in Miami and to weave together the conveniences of 21st century urban living and shopping, while keeping the indoor/outdoor tree canopy and some of the palette that defines Coconut Grove. Whether it’s getting a cafecito, picking up groceries or taking the train downtown from your Grove apartment – the idea was to weave in the urban fabric and Underline together to create an active, safe and engaging linear plaza of retail to tie the project together and to increase ridership.
The project is planned to house one of the first microgrid solar roofs in the South Florida region, with battery back-up to power the Metro Rail Station and maintain essential services functional in the case that a storm event should disrupt the general grid. This resiliency features is a huge advantage for retailers, residents and transit riders.
