Terranova's Stephen Bittel Announces Acquisition of 300 Miracle Mile

CORAL GABLES, Fla., July 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Terranova Corporation Chairman Stephen Bittel today announced the company's $6 million acquisition of 300 Miracle Mile, a prominent building on the busy corner of historic Miracle Mile and Salzedo Street, in Coral Gables, Fla. The acquisition, which brings to 12 the number of Miracle Mile buildings owned by the national real estate services firm, evidences Bittel's long-standing commitment to strengthen downtown Coral Gables and its major retail corridor. The deal, led by Terranova Managing Director Ari Bittel, closed June 29.

The seller, the Mildred Weissel Trust, purchased the 6,000-square-foot property over 70 years ago. The 5,950-square-foot building had been home for years to California Pizza Kitchen, which closed its doors in the wake of the pandemic.

Bittel's plans for the building call for bringing a new, high-profile restaurant tenant to the street, reactivating the central corner destination in the heart of the city's business district. "We are happy to continue to invest in Miracle Mile and bring new activity and opportunities to the downtown Coral Gables business district," Bittel said. "Notably, this includes a variety of new restaurants opening at Terranova buildings, including Cortadito, Sushi Sake, and John Martin's, and many others including Gramercy, Luca Osteria, Zitz Sum, Forte, and Dickey's BBQ Pit. It is great to see these positive economic indicators evidencing that South Florida's commercial real estate market is strong and well-positioned for continued growth."

Added Ari Bittel: "We are proud of Terranova's history of impact on Coral Gables and look forward to continuing to close deals and forge partnerships which bring significant value to the city and everyone who lives, works, and plays there."

Terranova, which purchased its first property on Miracle Mile almost 20 years ago, has a long-standing history of community involvement in Coral Gables. This includes:

  • Launching "Studios on the Mile," a series of local artist studios which Terranova established at six vacant properties on the street
