In February, contractors topped out Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel’s first built work in Florida, the luxury Monad Terrace condominium. Located on Biscayne Bay in Miami Beach, Monad Terrace features 59 residential units spread across two towers, which stand 90 ft and 149 ft tall. The French architect’s firm, Ateliers Jean Nouvel, envisioned the project as a “reflective machine” that uses “daylight, water, glass and steel to achieve glittering reflections that act as an extension of the ocean,” according to the project team. Leading the construction is New York-based JDS Development, which secured $62.5 million in financing for the project. Kobi Karp Architecture is also a member of the project team. The project is targeting completion later in the year.
