New Restaurant to Open at 55 Miracle Mile

CORAL GABLES, FL (August 13, 2015) – RKF, the leading independent real estate firm in North America specializing in retail leasing, investment sales and consulting services, announced today that it has arranged a 5,900-square-foot lease for restaurateur Jerry Flynn’s new upscale-casual restaurant Trust & Co. at 2 Aragon in Coral Gables, FL.

RKF Vice President Drew Schaul and Senior Directors John Ellis and Ben Mandell represented the tenant.

Located at the intersection of Aragon Avenue and Merrick Way, 2 Aragon is situated within 55 Miracle Mile, the premier mixed-use building in Coral Gables with residential condominiums, Class A office space, which is 100% leased, and 40,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Other noteworthy retail tenants at the property include Cibo Wine Bar, Tarpon Bend Restaurant, La Cuisine Kitchen Interior Showroom, Iron Sushi and Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream.

“Coral Gables is a hot market right now, reviving the City Beautiful Movement the town was first influenced by and principled on, and with the recent investments in 55 Miracle Mile,” said Ellis. “Trust & Co was attracted to the dense office and residential populations in the area, which are great generators of daytime traffic. The proximity to neighboring restaurants Tarpon Bend and Cibo Wine Bar, coupled with the position within Coral Gables’ restaurant row, makes this the ideal location for an exciting new restaurant. Trust & Co. will not only serve the daytime crowd, but also cater to the late-night industry crowd and local residents.”

RKF is currently engaged as the exclusive leasing agent for the retail space at 55 Miracle Mile and has already renewed two tenants, Iron Sushi and GMI Real Estate, and helped with the expansion of another tenant, Meridian MedSpa.

Added Schaul, “The fact that existing tenants are opting to stay at Miracle Mile further demonstrates how stable this asset is. Given the prominence of 55 Miracle Mile, ownership has been selective in securing the right tenants for the space. Trust & Co. is just the type of tenant that aligns with the demands of discerning Coral Gables residents and tourists that visit the Mile. It fits with ownership’s long-term strategy for the property.”

Trust & Co., which will have both indoor and outdoor seating, will offer diverse American cuisine with quality ingredients and craft cocktails and beers. The restaurant marks restaurateur Jerry Flynn’s first time branching out on his own. Flynn brings over 24 years of restaurant experience and was a former partner in Batch Gastropub located in Brickell. Trust & Co. is expected to open by the end of the year.
