::  Frantz Residence
3529 St. Gaudens Road
Year Built: 1922
Architects: Kiehnel and Elliott
Date Designated: April 7, 2015

Constructed in 1922, the home located at 3529 St. Gaudens Road, was originally built for Albert Frantz and his wife Belle. Albert Frantz was part owner in the Sunshine Fruits Company, an organization that was instrumental in the development of Coconut Grove, along with his business partner Harold deBussy Justison. Both built homes along St. Gaudens Road, formerly named Ozone Avenue, in the subdivision of Justison and Frantz – named for these developers – and each hired the architectural firm, Kiehnel and Elliott to design their respective residences. As part of the early 1920s development boom, the home represents a significant time in Miami’s development progress. This era in Coconut Grove partially owes the reason and direction of its growth, particularly in the southern portion of the area, to the Sunshine Fruits Company who subdivided the land and welcomed new land owners to the area.
