Coral Gables

Coral Gables, city (1990 pop. 40,091), Miami-Dade co., SE Fla., SW of Miami; inc. 1925. Founded at the height of the Florida land boom, Coral Gables is a noted planned city, with tree-lined boulevards and Mediterranean-style buildings. Originally heavily residential, it now houses many inter-American, in particular Latin American, offices of large corporations; its proximity to Miami International Airport has aided the city's development and promoted tourism. The Univ. of Miami is in Coral Gables.
