Developers Terra Group and The Related Group are counting on Art Basel Miami Beach to help generate momentum for their high-rise project in Coconut Grove.

Terra and Related ran a design competition for the planned high-rise tower on 5.4 waterfront acres in the Grove, the New York Times reported. The renderings from four teams of architects are to be displayed in an exhibition called “Four (4): New Visions for Living in Miami” at the DesignMiami tent. The winning design by the Office for Metropolitan Architecture/Rem Koolhaas (or OMA) has already been chosen, but all four entries will be unveiled at the exhibition.

Architects Ateliers Jean Nouvel, Christian de Portzamparc and Diller Scofidio & Renfro all submitted renderings. OMA designed six skinny high-rise towers with floor-to-ceiling glass and unobstructed water views. [NYT]Eric Kalis
