The Makeover of Coconut Grove: Park Grove

Park Grove is one of The Spinnaker Group’s newest projects; a joint venture between Terra Group and the Related Group. It will include two 20-story bayfront towers with 72 units each and a 20-story third tower with 140 smaller units toward the rear of the property. Thursday evening, the USGBC South Florida chapter, hosted their monthly meeting at the sales center and future project site where the now Coconut Grove Bank building sets. The project is slated for LEED Silver and will highlight energy efficient glass, 12-foot ceilings and sweeping views of Biscayne Bay which is scheduled for a major public-private makeover and a new park. Rem Koolhaas, a Dutch architect whose internationally renowned firm, OMA, has done major projects from Paris and Milan to Beijing and Tokyo, is in charge of the design of the Park Grove project. OMA was selected in a design competition that included four prominent architectural firms. This project site is next door to another Spinnaker Group project, Grove at Grand Bay which is also being developed by Terra Group. This project, which features larger condominium units in two twisting towers designed by starchitect Bjarke Ingels (BIG), is nearly sold out. The Spinnaker Group is beyond excited to add these LEED Certified Luxury Condo projects to its vast portfolio of projects. Plus the experience of working with such elite developers and designers is also a highlight for The Spinnaker Group team.
