CORAL GABLES CHARRETTE: DOWNTOWN
Themed Retail: Restaurant Row One retail enhancement strategy discussed during the charrette is the theming of retail in mer- chandising sub-zones, accumulating many like-product establishments in a specific location. Giralda Avenue can already be identified as Restaurant Row. This drawing shows the use of the street parking spaces for sidewalk expansion to encourage outdoor dining. This would need further study to determine whether the loss of adjacent parking would be harmful to the businesses.
