The Grand Concourse, Miami Shores’ national historic landmark building, has been sold as 16 private condominiums and 9 garage units.

Built in 1926 as a signature building by the Shoreland Develoment Company, the Grand Concourse maintains the original architectural design created by Robert Law Weed. Weed was an important early Florida architect who later became an innovator of Tropical Art Deco. The original quarter sawed hardwood flooring has been maintained throughout, along with other interior features such as archways and ornate columns. The structure of the building is sound, built on a foundation of concrete and large beams of Dade County pine, a wood said to be impervious to termites. Flat roofs have been redone within the past three years and the barrel tile roof has just been replaced.  Bathrooms and kitchens have been updated to feature new tile, showers, sinks, fixtures and copper pipe. New tile has been added to all of the "sun room" areas.

Improvements have been done to complement the value and enjoyment of the building. Modern hurricane strength impact resistant windows have been installed to replace the jalousie windows. These windows provide security, soundproofing, and thermal protection from the elements. The window design is in keeping with the historic design and has been approved by the Village of Miami Shores Historic Preservation Board. The windows, coupled with new air conditioning systems and electrical upgrades will help lower individual electric meter bills.

Other key improvements have focused on the common areas with pavers on all walkways, improved landscaping with well water irrigation system, new surrounding sidewalks and exterior painting and lighting.

The Zip Code 33138 is one of the fastest appreciating areas for real estate in the United States, and Miami Shores is the jewel of the neighborhood. Miami Shores Village remains one of Dade County's most desirable suburbs.

Ellen S. Harris is credited with the naming of the Shoreland Company's development project. She suggested the name Miami Shores from a popular waltz of the time called "On Miami Shore." The name was agreed because it conjured up a waterfront image desired for the project.
