Changing Communities: MIAMI Realtors Partners to Transform Coconut Grove Plaza

by | Jan 10, 2018

MIAMI REALTORS® partnered with the University of Miami’s School of Architecture and the Knight Foundation to transform an underutilized area in Coconut Grove on November 30, 2017.

MIAMI members helped build furniture, worked with the local children to create the vision for the mural on the feature wall and sponsored the mural.

MIAMI worked with UM and children from The Barnyard, The Home Team, and The STARTS Program to create a Wall Mural in the @mktplacemiami at the Goombay Plaza in West Coconut Grove. 

Located at 3685 Grand Ave., Goombay Plaza has created a relaxing and inviting outdoor gathering space with a distinctive Grove-Caribbean flair, infused with art, music and special events.  

About MIAMI Realtors Changing Communities

REALTORS® don’t just sell properties, we invest in communities. In 2017, MIAMI REALTORS® invested more than $100,000 in grant funds from the National Association of REALTORS(R) (NAR) to improve our South Florida communities. 

Through member engagement and feedback, MIAMI developed a list of local community projects that could have the most impact. MIAMI invited its 46,000-plus membership for a brainstorming session and more than 200 members contributed ideas and volunteered to help. 

In 2017, MIAMI hosted more than 10 local community initiatives, from helping create a new Miami Shores community destination to re-painting Miami Gardens commercial buildings. Each project was led by the Realtor who proposed it and supported by a team of fellow Realtor volunteers and a Realtor partner (usually an elected official).

More MIAMI Realtors Changing Communities initiatives are planned for 2018. 

MIAMI members can register to volunteer at our upcoming community events at: MiamiRealtors.com/Volunteers
