Miami-based Terra Group has broken ground on Grove at Grand Bay, a pair of steel and glass towers designed in Coconut Grove, Fla., by celebrity Danish architect Bjarke Ingels and landscaped by Raymond Jungles, the father-son developer duo of Pedro and David Martin reported.

The LEED-certified towers, to rise from the ashes of the recently demolished Grand Bay Hotel, climb 20 stories high, twist at a 38-degree angle, and boast 12 by 12 feet balconies overlooking Sailboat Bay, the marina and the Miami skyline.

“Our vision was to create an eco-conscious residential project so sculptural and visually spectacular that it would become a statement for a new Coconut Grove,” Terra Group co-founder David Martin said in a news release.

More than a quarter of a billion dollars of the pre-construction units, which start at $3 million, have been sold, according to Terra Group, “a figure that shows buyers’ eagerness to become a part of this exciting new wave of design,” Pedro Martin, the company’s chairman, chief executive and co-founder said.

Residents will enjoy the services of a multi-lingual butler, on-site chef, curated art gallery, a pet spa and four pools. –Emily Schmall
