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.

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.

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.
