Choosing to live in a gated community means having added security, privacy, community and exclusivity at your disposal. Once within those gates, you can feel right at home, leaving behind any chaos, and relaxing with the comfort that a community neighborhood provides. Here’s a list of Coconut Grove’s most popular gated communities that offer all that, plus the bonus of living in a relaxed, tropical oasis, dotted with marinas and sailing clubs.

Real Estate News All the Bay Harbor Islands Pre-construction Condo Projects You Need to Know About
The once sleepy bayfront town of Bay Harbor Islands, sandwiched between Miami Beach and mainland Miami, is undergoing a renaissance. This small neighborhood has recently come alive with a flurry of new construction activity, as old 1950s buildings, past their prime, are bought and cleared for new, boutique, waterfront condos. Clean, quiet, and pristine, this almost forgotten piece of Miami real estate had stood unnoticed for way too long, considering the building boom of the early 2000s skipped over this part of town. With new zoning rules in place and a prime waterfront location, Bay Harbor Islands’ pre-construction projects rival even those from South Beach, offering extra-large floor plans, the quiet luxury of boutique living, and private marinas with ocean access, often at better price points than Miami Beach. Given the recent surge in demand for luxury housing and scarcity of workable waterfront parcels, several big developers are drawn to the area, as South Florida becomes the...
