The BIG-designed Grove at Grand Bay is now complete, becoming an new architectural icon for South Miami. Residents will now put the finishing touches on the units before a grand opening and move-in next month. The two twisting 20-story towers have been completely sold out, and mark BIG’s first completed condominium building in the United States.

“Coconut Grove is a special place with a well-defined soul, so it was important that Grove at Grand Bay respond to its community through a design that was respectful and distinctive,” explains Bjarke Ingels. “By creating twisting towers that rise side-by-side but never cross paths, we were able to optimize views, outdoor spaces and the flexibility of our floor plans while allowing the buildings to interact with one another.”

Developed by the Terra Group and rising 20 stories over the bay-front, Grove at Grand Bay contains 96 expansive residences, ranging in size from 1,300 square feet to a 10,000 square foot penthouse with a 5,000 square foot terrace and private pool. Each condo features panoramic views as the two towers twist up from ground and clear the surrounding buildings, readjusting their orientation to ensure each unit receives sightlines to the marina to Miami skyline.

Property amenities include a rooftop pool on each tower, a 5-star spa and fitness center, a private dining room for residents and a pet spa. Units over 4,000 square feet are accompanied by a private 2-car garage; the South Tower penthouse with a 4-car garage. All units feature 12-foot high ceilings.

Landscape architecture on the project was done by Miami’s Raymond Jungles.
