Coral Gables is situated in Miami-Dade County, southwest of downtown Miami. True to its origins as a community with an international flavor, today it's the home of more than 150 multinational corporations and 26 consulates. Coral Gables' reputation as the fine dining capital of South Florida can also be attributed to these international influences. But even as the city fosters growth in the commercial sector, it preserves the serenity and natural beauty of its residential areas. A Neighborhood Renaissance program uses a diversified approach to neighborhood renewal, from repaving streets and beautifying intersections and traffic circles to revitalizing fountains and parks and building a senior center. A Public Art Program works both to preserve existing, historic public art pieces and to commission and display new ones.

Founded in 1925 as one of the nation's first fully planned communities, Coral Gables, Florida is home to the University of Miami as well as 46,000 permanent residents. Originally designed to evoke an international atmosphere, with many historic buildings in the Mediterranean style, Coral Gables offers today's homebuyer many options, from high- and low-rise condos to spacious single-family homes on the shores of Biscayne Bay, in a pedestrian-friendly city characterized by parks, plazas, and tree-lined avenues.
