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 renderings show the sleek, modern interiors of the Miami Beach condominiums, which look out at Biscayne Bay through a saw-toothed facade lined with honeycomb glass. 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.
