MIAMI/ APRIL 11, 2019 (STL.News)
Park Grove is the culmination of a shared vision between Terra Group and The Related Group, who united for the first time with this iconic build. Known for utilizing top talent in architecture, design and art, the partners launched Park Grove as a design competition, inviting four high-profile architects to ensure that the overall concept would honor the neighborhood’s natural beauty and laid-back sophistication. OMA, founded by Rem Koolhaas, was declared the winner, making Park Grove the firm’s first residential property in the United States. Inspired by Biscayne Bay, OMA Partner and Project lead, Shohei Shigematsu, envisioned the towers as barrier islands, each uniquely independent while maintaining a linked intimacy. While Park Grove’s layout resembles the islands, each exterior column draws inspiration from palm trees featuring facets designed to block out sun and glare.
Globally acclaimed design house, Meyer Davis, created an interior aesthetic that is friendly with the architecture, and reflective of the character of Coconut Grove. Furnishings and decorative elements are modern and contemporary, but with an organic quality.
Amenities: As one of the most comprehensive amenity packages, Park Grove offers a full-service spa and wellness center complete with private treatment rooms, a mani/pedi lounge, yoga and pilates studio, his and hers steam and sauna and relaxation rooms; wine-tasting rooms with private storage; a 28-seat private screening room; a business center with meeting rooms; a private dining and event space; a 5-acre sculpture garden by Enzo Enea; an expansive pool deck spanning 500-feet with poolside cabanas. An onsite restaurant by James Beard Award-winning Chef Michael Schwartz will add to this roster in 2019.
Highlights: The building’s unique offerings inspired the creation of two distinct roles, an Estate Manager to ensure five-star service for each resident, and a Nautical Concierge to plan yacht and sailing outings for residents, lessons at Coconut Grove Sailing Club and more. The Nautical Concierge will also curate regular programming and events onsite, including concerts and guest speakers at the outdoor amphitheater.
