Commissioner Souto to dedicate street for local architect and professor Santiago Aranegui

Miami-Dade County Commissioner Javier D. Souto will honor the memory of Santiago Aranegui with a street co-designation. On Friday, March 16 at noon, Commissioner Souto and staff from various County departments will unveil “Santiago Aranegui Way” near the intersection of Southwest 29th Street and 77th Court. A portion of 77th Court from Coral Way to SW 29th Street will now bear his name.

Santiago Aranegui was born in Havana, Cuba and obtained his degree in Social Studies at the University of Havana, and shortly after migrated to the United States on September 8, 1960. He opened an architecture firm in Miami in 1972 and became a professor of architecture at Miami-Dade College. Later, he co-founded a Rosicrucian Lodge, a fraternal organization devoted to studying the mysteries of life and the universe,  in Miami for Spanish speakers. He and his wife organized conferences and classes for the lodge on the successful radio program, “Ayer, Hoy, y Mañana” (“Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow”).

For more information, please contact Commissioner Souto’s office at 305-222-2116.
