Grove Bay Investment Group LLC proposes a complete transformation of this unique, public property. With the exception of the two existing hangars, each of which will be extensively renovated and historically preserved, all structures now on the site will be demolished and replaced with new construction designed and situated to achieve the guiding principles of the Coconut Grove Waterfront Master Plan.
Major components of The Harbour and its $17.9-million project budget include:
A casual dining restaurant, Hangar 42 Pub & Grub, evoking the spirit of the Sikorsky S-42 “flying boat” designed by Charles Lindbergh for Pan American World Airways and which flew into and out of Dinner Key. Hangar 42 will be one story, with high ceilings, and provide seating for 250 persons in a mix of covered and open-air space, all with incredible views of the bay. The menu will feature fish tacos, burgers, fresh grilled fish, salads, sandwiches and other light fare, along with a wide selection of wines and craft beers. Live entertainment will be provided on weekends. As with the fine dining restaurant and Océano, Hangar 42 will offer “dockside service,” take-away meals for those wishing to dine afloat or at home.
A two-story venue that will be home to a fine dining restaurant. The ground floor will accommodate 150 persons in 6,000 square feet of air-conditioned space and another 50 persons in a covered outdoor patio, and will feature an indoor/outdoor bar at the water’s edge. Floor-to-ceiling windows will enhance inside diners’ water views, and valet parking will be provided.
A second, formal dining restaurant, Océano Seafood-Cebicheria, sharing a water-view breezeway with the neighboring fine dining restaurant. Its menu will feature primarily seafood with an emphasis on Peruvian cuisine and other Latin fusion flavors. The ground floor will accommodate 150 persons in 5,500 square feet of air-conditioned space, another 50 persons in a covered outdoor patio, and 25 persons in open-air seating around the existing, landmark banyan tree. It, too, will have full-height windows and an indoor/outdoor bar on its water side.
