The interactive movement of the two towers creates a new dancing silhouette on the Grove's skyline.

The Grove Grand Bay residences, located on the former site of the Grand Bay Hotel, is just minutes from key areas including the airport, downtown Miami and Coral Gables.

Rising 20 stories over the bay-front with panoramic views from every angle as the two towers take off from the ground and clear the surrounding buildings, readjusting their orientation to capture the full breadth of panoramic views from sailboat bays and the marina to the Miami skyline.

Whether in the shade of the building's twisting facades or inside, residents of the Grove at Grand Bay will fully experience and relish living amid the open air. The gardens and architecture will fuse seamlessly at the amenity levels, maximizing indoor outdoor living experiences that are unique to the South Florida climate.

The interior design of the individual units are refined towards minimalism and luxury. With an open flow-through floor plan, each residence will showcase 12' ceilings and 12' floor-to-ceiling windows, as well as spacious outdoor terraces with wraparound balconies that create a continuous indoor/outdoor living environment.

Miami has developed a contemporary condominium vernacular that combines brise soleil style balcony shading with floor-to-ceiling windows in order to best enjoy the panoramic water views of the area. We propose to elaborate on these indigenous elements and continue the evolution of the local condominium architecture.Bjarke Ingels, Founding Partner, BIG

Upon completion, the project will seek LEED Certification Silver designation as the first such structure in Coconut Grove.

The podium of parking and amenities is covered by a carpet of lush jungle vegetation from which the towers emerge.

As the buildings rise over their neighbors, the optimum views change to favor a panorama that encompasses both the marina in front and the Miami skyline to the north. The twisting of the buildings allows the towers to stand next to each other side-by-side rather than front-and-back.
