Continued Progress on the Coconut Grove Playhouse Project

Site Plan Options

Work on the site plan options for the Coconut Grove Playhouse is underway by the County’s design team led by Arquitectonica International Corporation. This process is being informed by the team’s theater consultants, Fisher Dachs Associates; structural engineer, Douglas Wood Associates; and historic preservation architect, Jorge Hernandez, among other design team members.  

It is anticipated that site plan options will be shared with key stakeholders for feedback in a public meeting by the end of the summer. Notices regarding the date, time and location of the public meeting will be issued as soon as the work is ready.

Grant Request to the Florida Division of Historical Resources

By the July 8, 2016 deadline, Miami-Dade County submitted a grant application requesting funding support from the Florida Division of Historical Resources. A copy of the application is linked here for reference. As the Playhouse project progresses, there will be additional efforts to ensure that there are sufficient resources to achieve the ambitious goals set for addressing the historic status of the site and returning great theatre to Coconut Grove.
