Coral Gables project reaches for the sky

Another developer wants to push beyond the limits of zoning and land use in the Crafts Section, less than six months after the city approved a controversial upzoning that just doesn’t seem like enough. Trammell Crow Residential, one of the nation’s largest homebuilders, will go before the city’s Board of Architects Thursday morning and ask for more height, more density, less required parking, less green space, less setback. Alexan Crafts would go seven stories up for 263 apartments, 22 live/work units on the ground floor (read: retail) and a parking garage with 364 spaces — a different one for every day of the year. Almost.
