CEMEX has announced that it is expected to deliver an estimated 55 000 yd3 (approximately 42 000 m3) of ready mixed concrete. This concrete will supply phase one of the Plaza Coral Gables, which is the largest real estate development in the history of the city of Coral Gables.

Agave Ponce, the developers, broke ground on the 2.25 million ft2 (approximately 210 000 m2) mixed-use project in September 2018. It is estimated that the entire project has a cost of US$400 million. The development is planned to include offices, residential apartments, a hotel, retail, and parking, and its amenities will feature fitness centres, rooftop pools for residents and hotel guests, a ballroom, and meeting space.

“The Plaza Coral Gables is a historical development, as it is the largest in the city’s history, which comes with a special responsibility,” said Kirk Light, Regional President of the Florida Region for CEMEX. “Known as the ‘City Beautiful,’ Coral Gables maintains a traditional aesthetic that must be upheld with integrity in the building block of this mixed-use, landmark property. CEMEX is proud to supply high-quality materials from our strong Florida network.”

“CEMEX is committed to delivering on our operational excellence for the Plaza Coral Gables mixed-use project that is set to be a leading project of its own kind in the US,” said Ignacio Madridejos, President of CEMEX USA. “Our industry expertise, combined with our roots in the Coral Gables community, will provide value throughout the project’s development and into the life cycle of what will be not only the largest standing building of the ‘City Beautiful,’ but also a haven for both visitors and residents.”

It is expected that phase one of the project will be completed by the end of 2020.
