The first collaborative effort by industry powerhouses Starwood Capital Group and LYND; Sales led by Fortune International beginning Aug. 2013

Nine at Mary Brickell Village, a new luxury condominium located in the heart of Mary Brickell Village at 999 Southwest 1st Ave., will include 390 elegantly appointed residential units and rise 34 stories to overlook the neighborhood’s culinary, nightlife and retail scene. Slated for completion in May 2014, Nine at Mary Brickell Village will be brought to life by industry powerhouses Starwood Capital Group and LYND, with sales led by Fortune International. Equity financing for the project is being provided by New York-based BlackRock, on behalf of an institutional investor.

“After a year of planning, we are excited to bring this project to market,” says Michael Lynd, Jr., CEO & Chief Investment Officer of San Antonio-based real estate firm LYND, most recently credited for the highly successful EnV development in Chicago. “Our team is as strong as any in the country and we are excited for the opportunity to deliver a long-anticipated, first-class residential experience to the heart of Brickell. Mary Brickell Village is one of the most unique environments in the country, with its mixture of cultural, dining, shopping, nightlife, and fitness activities, as well as its proximity to mass transit. Our research indicates that these urban locations appeal to a wide variety of households with families, empty nesters, and young professionals choosing to live in this type of 24-hour atmosphere. This is the next generation of living.”

“This is the perfect opportunity to create a premier luxury condominium that embodies the vibrant soul of Miami,” says Ken O’Neill, Senior Vice President of Starwood Capital Group. “We are very excited to be partnered with this talented group of developers and investors with the common goal of creating an iconic residence for the thriving neighborhood of Mary Brickell Village.”

Standing as the only residential tower in Mary Brickell Village, Nine will feature units starting from $300,000. There are 30 available floor plans for units, which will be sold in one-, two-, or three-bedroom formats, and ranging in size from 744 to more than 2,098 square feet (69 to 194 square meters). Residences will boast beautifully appointed kitchens with stainless steel appliances, 9- to 11 foot ceilings, quartz countertops and backsplashes, designer fixtures and hardware, oversized mirrors, spacious walk-in closets, and large soaking tubs.

Nine will deliver a unique residential lifestyle experience and, in today’s competitive market, this development reflects a higher level never before seen in the lively Mary Brickell Village,” says Edgardo Defortuna, President and CEO of Fortune Internationalwhich will launch sales in August 2013. “We expect the project to be extremely attractive to downtown professionals seeking a high-rise setting in the heart of Brickell and surrounded by authentic Miami attractions.”

Nine at Mary Brickell Village will offer a variety of social amenities, including: an expansive one-acre, lushly landscaped recreation deck with pavilions and intimate cabanas; media lounge; pool deck with heated resort-style swimming pool; fitness center equipped with a wide range of Precor equipment including cardio machines with integrated touchscreen televisions; and state-of-the-art videoconferencing room. The pet-friendly project will also include a dog run on the eleventh floor of the building. A secret zen garden with tranquil landscaped walking paths, intimate seating areas and dining tables will also be featured on the building’s eleventh floor in a one-acre private park dedicated to lounging, socializing and enjoying quiet moments alone. On-site security will be present, as well as concierge services that will include the arrangement of limo and town car transportation, housekeeping, laundry, dry cleaning, personal fitness trainers, poolside massage, and pet care. Covered parking and valet services will also be available.

Owners of Nine at Mary Brickell Village condominiums will enjoy use of the private Grand Bay Club of Key Biscayne, adding private beach club amenities to their already luxurious urban oasis. The Grand Bay Club offers a tropical retreat and access to exclusive oceanfront cabanas with service stations, a poolside tiki bar, a variety of swimming pools, and superb indoor and outdoor dining overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

Nine at Mary Brickell Village will be adjacent to the upcoming Brickell CityCentre, a mixed-use complex co-developed by the owners of Bal Harbour Shops, which is expected to include nine acres of upper-tier and premium luxury shopping, restaurants and hotels. Residents of Nine will be offered a mix of nightlife and restaurant options. Nearby destinations include the Four Seasons Hotel, Viceroy, Cipriani, and Katsuya, located in the upcoming SLS Hotel. Elevators will whisk residents down to the epicenter of Mary Brickell Village’s shops and restaurants such as Perricone’s Marketplace, Rosa Mexicano and The Oceanaire Seafood Room, which complement other high-profile restaurants in a neighborhood that is currently experiencing phenomenal growth. Residences will be in walking distance to the Metrorail and Metromover Brickell station, and will have access to Publix Super Market and the L.A. Fitness health club, both located at the base of the building.

Terra Group Breaks Ground On Grove at Grand Bay, Coconut Grove’s Newest Luxury Real Estate Residences

terra grand bay w

Grove at Grand Bay will serve as an area landmark, setting the bar for future development in Coconut Grove,” says Pedro Martin , Terra Group’s Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and Founder who, together with son and Co-Founder David Martin , is developing the project. “Since Grove at Grand Bay launched, we have sold more than $250 million worth of inventory, a figure that shows buyers’ eagerness to become a part of this exciting new wave of design.”

Pedro Martin and David Martin , founders and owners of leading Miami real estate development company Terra Group, have announced groundbreaking for Grove at Grand Bay, the new luxury residence project located in the epicenter of historic Coconut Grove at 2675 South Bayshore Dr. The twin spiraling towers will rise above the lush flora and fauna for which The Grove is known, offering pristine waterfront views of Sailboat Bay and the marina. Removed from the busy pace of South Beach and Downtown Miami, yet still minutes away by car, this microcosm will be within walking distance of the village’s charming restaurants, boutiques and entertainment venues. Sales for the South Tower have officially launched; 100 percent of the units in the North Tower have sold in less than one year.

David Martin adds, “Among South Florida’s most in-demand communities, Coconut Grove has a unique history renowned for embracing the arts and nature. Some of history’s most creative minds have made Coconut Grove their home over the decades, including Robert Frost , Alexander Graham Bell , Tennessee Williams, David Crosby and Howard Hughes .”

“Our vision was to create an eco-conscious residential project so sculptural and visually spectacular that it would become a statement for a new Coconut Grove. There was no architect in the world better suited to realize this than Bjarke Ingels,” continues Martin, who is committed to bringing world-class architecture and design to Miami.

Bjarke Ingels, founder of BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group) is an award-winning architect acclaimed for designing buildings “as programmatically and technically innovative as they are resource-conscious.” Bjarke’s singular vision for the LEED-certified Grove at Grand Bay has resulted in the creation of a modern masterpiece:  Two glass-and-steel-encased towers rising in the sky 20 stories high, elegantly twisted at a 38-degree angle and housing 98 expansive residences.  “There are some architects who only care about their sculpture,” said David Martin , president of Terra Group. Bjarke on the other hand, really approaches things in a really genuine, humble manner and is really conscientious and respectful.”

“Grove at Grand Bay is inspired by ‘engineering without engines,’ or using contemporary technology to create buildings that look different because they perform differently,” says Ingels. “By creating balconies at an unprecedented 12 feet tall and 12 feet deep, we combine generous views and outdoor space with natural shade, maximizing daylight and optimizing shade. The sliders are also hurricane-proof, something all South Floridians can appreciate.”

Individual condominium units are spacious and designed to integrate interior living space with Coconut Grove’s natural splendor, featuring floor-to-ceiling sliding doors that open to terraces offering panoramic views of Sailboat Bay and the marina, as well as the Miami skyline and coastline. Priced from $3 million, these residences in the sky are tailored to a modern lifestyle that values both family life and entertaining at home, with living, dining, kitchen and family rooms configured in a continuous rectangular space.

Central to the project’s architecture is the ‘re-Groving’ of the site, led by award-winning landscape architect Raymond Jungles, whose vision will be translated into a flow of lush vegetation through shared lobby spaces, walkways and terraces to reinforce the idea of continuity.

Grove at Grand Bay’s amenities include a multi-lingual butler, on-site chef, curator-maintained art gallery, a gym and spa with separate facilities for men and women, a pet spa, and four pools — a 25-meter lap pool, 25-meter swimming and lounging pool, and two rooftop pools with covered cabanas.
