Vacating the Glass House

The Coconut Grove Chamber of Commerce is moving across the street and the NET office is moving to the former scuba shop location at 3310 A Mary Street.

Now what's next for the Glass House? Many would like to see an RFP go out fast so that the structure can become a restaurant, community center or something else.

i heard through the grapevine the Miami Parks and Recreation is replacing the NET office, and some type of food service in the coconut grove chamber of commerce...

a Coconut Grove Community Center will be great?

A Community Center is what it originally was, complete with ping pong tables, a baby grand piano, bathrooms and the coldest water fountains in the Grove. I never understood how the City was able to take it away from the citizens of Coconut Grove and not allow us access to water or restrooms in a public park.

On a sidenote- Thanks for bringing back Anon commenting.

The only water fountain at this park does not work and is a perpetual amoeba infested water retainer due to bad drainage(near the basketball courts/skatepark). It's insane that the only way to drink water at this park is to use the water hose valves at the maintenance shed in the center of the park (also where the homeless bathe, yuck!). WTF? Who the hell is steering this ship? Turn that building into a Community Center ASAP and get us residents some clean water fountains at Peacock!

Rumor has it that RFP or not, it's going to the owner of Peacock Garden Cafe.
If that happens, you know you read it at the grapevine first.

Maybe they should bring back the community centre; a property like this should service the neighborhood in some way that is conducive to the needs of the residents in the area. It looks quite large, so maybe a community mall would be good too – it’s got floor to ceiling glass windows, which is perfect for little shops and bistros. Hopefully it won’t be torn down to make way for a condominium development.
