- Created Date
The Coral Gables City Hall was designed by Harold Steward and Phineas Paist, prominent architects of the era. Artistic Director Denman Fink assisted with the design of interior murals. The building was inaugurated in 1928 and was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. The façade boasts a semi-circle of two-story decorative columns and is often compared to the Merchants’ Exchange Building in Philadelphia, designed by noted architect William Strickland. The Greek Revival architectural style of the Philadelphia Exchange most likely influenced Paist, as he lived in Philadelphia prior to moving to Miami. Located at 405 Biltmore Way, the town hall looks across Le Jeune Road and down Coral Way, more commonly known as Miracle Mile. This historic district includes Merrick Park, Le Jeune Plaza and a portion of Biltmore Way and Coral Way.
