TBT (February 26, 2015) - Four years ago the under construction Grove at Grand Bay was about to top off at 20 stories in Coconut Grove. The two twisting buildings designed by Bjarke Ingels would eventually officially top off in June 2015. The buildings were completed in August 2016. Construction progress photos of the Grove at Grand Bay can be viewed here.

The Grove at Grand Bay is an architectural marvel located in Coconut Grove, Miami. When you drive into Coconut Grove the two twisting towers immediately catch your eye and are gorgeous to look at. At night is when the towers really come to life and the twisting columns are more pronounced and prominent. 

The two twenty story towers were designed by architect Bjarke Ingels and developed by Terra Group. Both the towers are a floor away from being topped out to their maximum height.

Work Underway At Parcel B

Parcel B Site

Parcel B Site

Work is underway at the Parcel B site located behind the American Airlines Arena with views of Biscayne Bay and Miami Beach. 

The three acre Miami-Dade County owned lot was used as a parking lot during Miami Heat games and concerts at the arena. In recent years the area was also used during the Formula E Miami ePrix in 2015 and was once an area proposed for a 450 foot flag.

Although $315,000 of work is underway with grass and 42 newly planted palm trees, the Miami Herald is reporting that the County is finalizing an agreement that would give control of the site to a group to build a Cuban exile history museum. The group would have five years to raise $99 million to finance the museum.

Work is also being done on the Bay Walk line underneath the PortMiami bridge that will eventually connect it from Edgewater to Brickell.
