Terra Group, Miami’s leading real estate development company, has announced its newest, most innovative development destined to be a landmark in South Florida, Grove at Grand Bay.
In collaboration with the award-winning design firm Bjarke Ingles & Associates, also know as BIG Architects, and landscape architecture firm Raymond Jungles, Grove at Grand Bay will be the epitome of luxury living located in the burgeoning Coconut Grove neighborhood.
“Grove at Grand Bay’s lifestyle offerings combined with the building’s impressive aesthetic is tantamount to the evolution of Coconut Grove,” explained Pedro Martin, chair, CEO and founder of Terra Group. “Within the next three years the area will be completely redefined and Grove at Grand Bay will play an important role in the new experience.”
Rising 20 stories on prestigious S. Bayshore Drive, Grove at Grand Bay encompasses two striking towers that will showcase 96 elegant and expansive residences. Residents will be privy to a captivating natural environment of verdant gardens with open-air ambiance, juxtaposed to the building’s breathtaking façade, and panoramic views of Biscayne Bay, Key Biscayne, Coral Gables and downtown Miami.
Superior amenities and services include private butlers, private elevators and two-car garages, rooftop swimming pools, wellness spa, state-of-the-art fitness center, clubroom, pet spa and much more.
“The powerhouse design team of BIG Architects and Raymond Jungles makes this South Florida’s most exciting development,” added David Martin, president and chief operating officer. “Our ‘think tank’ embodies a designapproach to development, questioning everything developers assume when building a residential property and creating environments that affects peoples lives viscerally and emotionally. We are about intelligent luxury.”
BIG Architects, led by Danish architect Bjarke Ingels, who recently received Wall Street Journal’s 2011 “Innovator of the Year in Architecture” award, is creating the residences and amenity spaces.
Raymond Jungles, the landscape architect who designed the grounds at Lincoln Road in Miami Beach and the New World Symphony’s rooftop garden, will produce the outdoor spaces, including terraces, pools and walking paths. Rounding out the starchitect group is Nichols Brosch Wrust Wolfe + Associates who provides architectural and planning services.
The interior design of the residences at Grove at Grand Bay will be just as spectacular as the building’s exteriors. With an open flow-through floor plan, each residence will showcase 12-foot ceilings and 12-foot floor-to-ceiling windows, unheard of in Florida, allowing for a unique feeling of space in the sky. The outside living areas, which will have wraparound balconies, are 12 feet deep creating a continuation of the indoor/outdoor living environment. Additional residential features include private elevator access to individual units, kitchens, Miele appliances and Dornbarcht fixtures.
Grove at Grand Bay will be located on the former site of the Grand Bay Hotel. Location is everything and residents will find themselves just minutes from key areas including the airport, downtown Miami, Miami Beach, Coral Gables, as well as Coconut Grove’s bustling center area lined with fine restaurants, cafes, art galleries and boutiques.
Additional areas of interest are nearby schools, hospitals, shopping malls and attractions such as the Adrienne Arsht Center, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, and the Barnacle Historic State Park.
The Grove at Grand Bay team has obtained the checklist required to achieve LEED Certification with a silver designation.
Terra Group will begin construction for Grove at Grand Bay in the fourth quarter of 2012 with slated completion in the third quarter of 2014. The sales gallery is located at 2675 S. Bayshore Dr. Sales for Grove at Grand Bay are being handled by Cervera Real Estate.
