The Parker Art Printing Association Building
A Fine Group of Business Buildings
IRST among the business structures in this fine section
is the arcade store building, now in use by retail business
of various kinds. It is the finest commercial building
of pure Spanish design in Florida. The Alcazar Tea
Room and Parker Print Shop are two more fine samples.
The New Administration Building, the imposing Bank and Post-
office, Garage and Utility buildings, the new Transportation build-
ing, Cement Block plants and the fine Coral Gables School all possess
distinctive architectural features of a high order.
Besides the above buildings, the Fire De-
partment quarters, Stabile cement works, two
large warehouses and several other industrial
plants are located in the Business Section.
Elaborate plans for other building projects in
the business group are under way. The com-
ing year promises developments to exceed, by
a wide margin, the wonders that have already
I been accomplished. A program of such vast
Proportions as to render an unlimited estimate
\ of expenditure-in fact a program greater than
has ever before been known in Florida-is
being carefully launched.

Broad Streets in Business Section
IGH standards of development have made the streets of
the Business Section of the very finest kind. Alhambra
Plaza, extending from LeJeune Road to Douglas Road, is
140 feetwide, with ten foot sidewalks on either side, and
a beautiful parkway in the center of the plaza. Alhambra
Circle, branching from Alhambra Plaza to the magnificent Bayside
Entrance on Douglas Road is 120 feet wide, and Avenue Alameda
is 100 feet wide.
The Business Section, while it is the only
part of the property in which business build-
ings may be erected, is not restricted exclu-
sively to commercial structures. A consider-
able part of it is devoted to residential areas,
and already a large number of fine Spanish
houses have been built here.
Thus the Business Section splendidly
/ keeps pace with the remarkable growth and
development of Coral Gables, growing every
day in usefulness, power and attractiveness,
even as Miami's Master Suburb daily acquires
greater beauty and distinction.
