Coconut Grove Grapevine
'Walls of Glass' is how The Arbor is described'

Here are the latest renderings of Arbor, a new eco-friendly Grove condo which is being jointly developed by Urban Atlantic Group and Oak Ventures.

This is a fresh glimpse into the five-story, 52-unit project.

You can see here the kitchen and master bath, as well as a shot of the northeast corner of the building which shows walls of glass. Full-length windows pull the outdoors in, private gardens and sizable living areas are part of the renderings. Chef-style kitchens in the residences will be outfitted with Bosch appliances and cerused oak cabinetry, and additional highlights in each unit will include natural wood finishes and wide-plank porcelain wood-grain floors.

Marked by a signature, leaf and vine-adorned exterior, the centrally-located building features designs by Behar Font Architects and interiors by Samuel Amoia. Named by VOGUE magazine as one of the “5 Young Interior Designers on the Rise,” Amoia has been the visionary behind a multitude of high-profile projects, including the recently- completed DeLorenzo Gallery on Madison Avenue in New York and the Itz’ana Resort and Residences in Belize.

The residences -- exclusively presented by Douglas Elliman -- range from two-story townhomes to penthouses.

“The images we’re unveiling further demonstrate that Arbor goes well beyond the norm of a standard development…a project crafted with a strong emphasis on livability and a sense of place,” said Nick Hamann, a Miami native, Coconut Grove resident and

Principal with Urban Atlantic Group. “Our vision has been to create large, house-like residences that capitalize on wide views, special amenities and walkable access to area hot-spots and recreational facilities – essentially, the quintessential home-sites for long- term members of this vibrant community.”

“Having grown up in South Florida, Nick and I have always had a tremendous appreciation for Coconut Grove, its longstanding roots and multitude of unique offerings,” said Jeremy Waks, Principal of Oak Ventures, who also hails from Miami.

“We have specifically drawn inspiration from these hallmarks to build something that pays homage to the social threads of the neighborhood, its ‘green’ composition and community-centered attributes.”

Developers plan to break ground on Arbor this July, with completion slated for fall of 2018. Residences start at $799,000.

The sales gallery, which opened in March, is located at 3034 Oak Avenue.
