Grove At Grand Bay Developers Purchase Nearby Site

December 27th, 2012

Terra Group, which is the infamous developer at the Grove at Grand Bay Towers, has recently purchased a 5-acre site in close proximity to this construction project.

The land has been zoned for a 700-unit residential tower. The company’s co-founder Pedro Martin has stated in an interview with Miami Herald however, that the plans would most likely include 200 units and construction wouldn’t commence until 2014. Other details revealed by Martin include that the tower would not exceed 20 floors. In addition, the property will not include restaurants, shops or retail – as is the case with Grove at Grand Bay.

Miami Herald reported that the location of this space makes it a prime development land, given that it sits between two central streets in Coconut Grove – on  Bayshore Drive and 27th Avenue. The tower when built, would also meet the Ritz Carton and Biscayne Bay halfway. The site furthermore has a spacious parking lot that expands over one block.

Coconut Grove Bank, which currently resides on the land space,  was built in 1959. The building would be demolished before construction begins on a new luxury high-rise for Coconut Grove Miami, and will be relocated to a nearby site on Southwest 27th Avenue. Coconut Grove Bank’s CEO believes that this transaction was profitable for both parties, given that most of the land space sat unused for years.

Coconut Grove is a lush and stately district in Miami. With the wave of developments taking place in  Coconut Grove along with nearby locations, Sydney Server brings the latest updates to subscribers and readers.
