Terra Group held their ground-breaking bash for the Grove at Grand Bay on Wednesday night with starchitect Bjarke Ingels and Haute 100 developers David and Pedro Martin. The bayfront Coconut Grove project is known for its two twisting towers designed by Ingels, who recently won the Wall Street Journal’s “Architectural Innovator of the Year.” The towers, one of which is already sold out, have 98 spacious, luxuriously appointed units that start at $3 million. The project will be LEED-certified and bring back a lot of greenery to the Grove with the help of integrated landscaping by Miami landscape architect Raymond Jungles.
The project has drawn the interest of architecture fans around the world and a lot of international buyers. “Our family wants to build great buildings,” explained David Martin. “Earlier in our career we played it safe, but if we can be the developer with the most amazing architects in the world, with that expertise, that’s the secret right now.” The Martins aim to reinvigorate Coconut Grove with the towers and additional investment and initiatives. The project was met by the crowd with resounding approval as they enjoyed craft cocktails and delicious nibbles by Karla Events.
