Demetree Global presents Phase 1 initiative at 2600 Douglas Road in Coral Gables, FL.
MIAMI (April 16, 2018) — Demetree Global celebrated the completion of Phase 1 at 2600 Douglas, an office building in Downtown Coral Gables with a new main entrance and an overhaul of the entire interior of the building at a grand opening ceremony and ribbon cutting on Wednesday, April 11, 2018. It was an honor to include Coral Gables City Mayor Raul Valdes-Fauli and Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce President & CEO Mark A. Trowbridge at the unveiling.
2600 Douglas, was built in 1972 as the first Class A office building in Coral Gables, and is a landmark within the historic city. “This has been a remarkable project from the start so it is rewarding to see it come to fruition, and to know the sustainable impact this project will have on downtown Coral Gables, which continues to grow as a dynamic and exciting community in which to live and work,” said Mary Demetree, chairwoman of Demetree Global.
The architect for the renovations, Zyscovich Architects, approached repositioning the building entrance to create a highly transparent ground floor connecting the building to the city-at-large, the VIP drop-off, and the rideshare pick-up area,” said Anabella Smith, ID, partner at Zyscovich Architects.
The next phase of the estimated $10 million project will include concrete stair towers, with back-lit, perforated metal.
