The oceanfront high-rise features floor-to-ceiling glass walls and aim at integrating the indoors and outdoors to highlight the natural beach surroundings and convey a sense of place. “It’s really a unique design,’’ said Terra Group president and chief operating officer David Martin, who could have put three times as many units on the site. “It’s something I don’t think I’ll be able to do again.’’
COMFORT AND PRIVACY
Glass has all the amenities of a high-end condominium, with unit prices averaging $8 million to $9 million and a three-story penthouse with a $35 million price tag. Prices will average about $2,500 per square foot. But a special draw is the full-floor layouts that will give residents panoramic views of the ocean, Miami Beach, the bay and downtown Miami and the flexibility to customize their floor plans. This building was designed aiming to offer something different from other South Florida projects which, albeit luxurious, cram hundreds of units into a building. Indeed, one of the most valued features by residents at Glass is the privacy, all of them have few neighbors.
Glass is meant to be light and ethereal and one that dematerializes as it rises. The condominium reflects both the urban vibe of the South of Fifth neighborhood and the beach. The amazing landscaping was designed by Raymond Jungles, a well-known South Florida landscape architect.
