On May 5, 2017 Docomomo US/Florida submitted an application to the City of Miami Historic and Environmental Preservation Board requesting them to designate Office in the Grove, Coconut Grove, a historic, architectural resource.

The Dade Heritage Trust, whose mission is to preserve Miami-Dade County’s architectural, environmental and cultural heritage, recently placed Office in the Grove on its list of most endangered sites.
