The new 'Glass House Project'
LointerHomes is the developer and they are planned for Plaza Street, Charles Avenue and William Avenue. Curbed Miami published photos and a story yesterday and it seems like all hell broke loose.
I've been hearing people and reading comments on social media like, "We have to stop this." But do we? Is it a knee jerk reaction that every time something new comes to Coconut Grove we need to fight it?
These are not large houses, they are about 2000 to 2500 square feet total and there is one on each lot and they are supposedly being built on empty lots. Recently I mentioned there were 200 empty lots in Village West. Isn't it better to have a house there rather than just empty land?
I like the big white box houses when they don't take the place of an old historic house and when they are on proper lots, you know, one lot, one house, rather than one lot five houses. And I don't like when mature trees are harmed to make way for the houses. But these Glass Houses don't seem to be in the same category of what was previously built, other than the fact that they appear similar, only smaller.
