to display continued progress in the design of the park grove condos, new images have been released presenting views of the three towers in their context among the coconut grove district of miami as well as of the open luxury living units. the buildings are surrounded by an expansive park, while also featuring large balconies and full height glass curtain walls to take advantage of ocean panoramas. the project is being led by OMA, with primary oversight by new york-based principal shohei shigematsu, while william sofield is responsible for the residences’ interiors and enzo enea for the landscape scheme. more recently it has been announced that the complex will feature a site specific installation by spanish public artist jaume plensa.

  • All that glass suggests a heavy air-con load. But the owners will surely be able to afford it. On what floor will the backup gensets reside?
