Holy Koolhaas! exMiami has leaked the first renderings of Park Grove, the luxury residential project that starchitect Rem Koolhaas' Office for Metropolitan Architecture is designing (along with Arquitectonica) for Terra Group and the Related Group for the Coconut Grove Bank site. The design has evolved significantly from Koolhaas' winning competition entry, which was a veritable forest of skinny towers that has now (according to exMiami) been reduced to three twenty story buildings at heights of 256, 287, and 294 feet.
There will be four two-story amenity buildings, a three story building for the relocated Coconut Grove Bank and a fitness center, and a two story office building. 730 parking spaces, for the bank and the project's 298 units, will be stuck somewhere. The project will be built in phases, with the first phase being the construction of the new bank while it continues to operate out of its old building. (which we hear will also serve as the project's sales center) Landscaping is by Enzo Enea and interiors by Studio Sofield.
