Step inside Monad Terrace’s sales gallery in Miami Beach

The sales gallery for JDS Development’s new luxury Miami residence, Monad Terrace, is now open at the corner of Alton Road and 14th Street, allowing visitors to catch a glimpse of what its sleek and sophisticated interiors will look like. Monad Terrace has been designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel with climate resilience in mind, and its 59 residences are built around a serene lagoon on Biscayne Bay. The sales gallery was designed to showcase the unique, sawtooth honeycomb glass that’s used throughout the development to diffuse natural light. The building is situated higher than required (11.5 feet) in an effort to insulate it from the effects of rising sea levels. The lobby area is a double-height space that overlooks the Bay. Residences begin at $2 million.

Star architects’ dazzling condos are snagging big bucks. But so are towers by Miami’s best

JDS Development Group certainly did not rush when deciding which architect would guide their latest Miami Beach development. After a lengthy and thoughtful search, the residential real estate developer hired Jean Nouvel, the Pritzker Prize-winning French architect whose glassy and modern aesthetic was judged to be perfect for the Miami site. According to JDS principal Simon Koster, his team chose Nouvel because of the architect’s ability to fuse nature with an urban setting. The project, dubbed “Monad Terrace,” benefits from the unique attributes of its location, as well as Nouvel’s sensibility, and building renderings show off the metallic structures draped in vines centered around a verdant lagoon. As development in Miami continues to boom, Monad Terrace will remain at the head of the pack, thanks to Nouvel’s powerful vision.

Jean Nouvel’s Monad Terrace expected to break ground shortly in Miami Beach

JDS Development Group has just released a batch of renderings of their new project at Monad Terrace, which is scheduled to break ground by the end of January.

The NYC- based real estate developers worked with renowned architect Jean Nouvel to create the stunning, climate change-resilient waterfront condominium building. The project’s centerpiece is a lagoon designed not only to reflect sunlight and provide space for local flora and fauna, but to accommodate any heavy flooding in the area. Nouvel’s designs also place Monad Terrace 11.5 feet above sea level, nearly twice the height required by Miami’s recently instated construction codes.

First Look: Monad Terrace

NYC-based JDS Development Group is making its mark on Miami real estate with Monad Terrace, a collection of 59 individually designed waterfront homes rising over South Beach Bay. The residential development comprises two towers, one rising 14 stories and the other 7 stories high—each bedecked in glass and metal—separated by a stunning reflecting pond. Monad Terrace is Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel’s first project in the south Florida city. Nouvel designed Monad Terrace to make the most of Miami’s natural beauty and the waterfront location. “Here in Miami, I wanted to create a building that is like the reflection of the sun on the water,” Nouvel says. Monad Terrace also reflects Nouvel’s careful consideration of the impacts of climate change; it will be constructed at a safe 13 feet above sea level, distinguishing it as Miami’s first residential building to meet the city’s new climate construction codes.
