Coconut Grove

Injunction in works to stop Charles Ave. changes?

Neighbors on Charles Avenue, the oldest street in the Grove, are concerned about the zoning change request for Charles Avenue.

It was thought that the PointeGroup was behind the zoning change request. They are responsible for the Grand Avenue project to be in Village West. But the zoning change for Charles Avenue is a request of the Aries Development Group, the people that own Calamari and the Taurus restaurants. They would like the zoning change for the Stirrup house, at 3242 Charles Avenue, which was built in 1888 by Grove pioneer Ebenezer Woodbury Franklin Stirrup. Their plan is to put a bed and breakfast, with a restaurant, in the historic house. But there are many concerns.
