The Florida chapter is looking for signatures to bring to a scheduled public meeting, September 5th, in support of the designation of The Office in the Grove. 

On May 5, 2017 Docomomo US/Florida submitted an application to the City of Miami Historic and Environmental Preservation Board requesting them to designate Office in the Grove, Coconut Grove, a historic, architectural resource.

 The iconic, mid-century building designed in 1973 by Kenneth Treister, is located at 2699 S. Bayshore Drive in Coconut Grove. It is one of the few remaining examples of the renowned architect’s work and would be a grave loss to Miami’s slim architectural history.

 The Dade Heritage Trust, whose mission is to preserve Miami-Dade County’s architectural, environmental and cultural heritage, recently placed Office in the Grove on its list of most endangered sites.
