Bjarke Ingels Group just completed its first luxury condominium design in the U.S.—and, unsurprisingly, all units are already sold out. Constructed in Miami’s historic Coconut Grove neighborhood, the Grove at Grand Bay is a pair of twisting 20-story glass towers that boast spectacular views, amenities, and an eco-conscious design. Co-developed by local firm Terra, Grove at Grand Bay is on track to become the first all-residential tower to achieve LEED Gold status in Florida.
Located on South Bayshore Drive, the 98-unit Grove at Grand Bay condominium overlooks views of Biscayne Bay to downtown Miami. Despite Miami’s reputation as a car-centric city, the Grove at Grand Bay’s surrounding area is highly walkable and close to some of the city’s most popular cafes, lounges, bookstores, and boutiques. The pedestrian-friendly luxury condominium also includes two rooftop pools, a five-star spa and fitness center, full-time concierge and butler service, and even a pet spa. Residences range between 1,300 square feet in size to a 10,000-square-foot full-floor penthouse. All units come with 12-foot-high ceilings and glass doors.
The design of the twisting glass buildings draws inspiration from the organic shapes found in nearby bodies of water and dense tropical foliage. The buildings are complemented with a stunning and lush landscape design created by acclaimed Miami landscape architect Raymond Jungles. The planting plan includes nearly 500 trees, over 15,000 plants, and many water features, and will help the project achieve LEED Gold status.
“Coconut Grove is one of Miami’s most storied neighborhoods and Grove at Grand Bay represents another chapter in that story,” says Terra President David Martin, who co-developed the project alongside his father Terra CEO Pedro Martin. “A sanctuary for artists, writers and unconventional thinkers, the Grove has a long history of challenging the status quo – much the same way Grove at Grand Bay is changing the way Miami thinks about design. We planned and developed this building with the goal of adding value to our neighborhood, so we’re proud that Coconut Grove is enjoying a resurgence while remaining mindful of its colorful past.”
