Tropical modernism: The Fairchild to land on Miami’s Coconut Grove
Set within Miami’s leafy Coconut Grove, The Fairchild is the brainchild of ROVR Developments. The scheme, designed by local architect Max Strang with interiors by New York-based Rafael de Cárdenas, will launch officially this autumn. It promises to be ‘the only luxury condominium development soon to rise’ on the historic waterfront.
The site is nestled in the area’s quaint Glencoe neighbourhood. The five-storey-high apartment complex will include 26 units, all set within a contemporary design inspired by tropical modernism. A lush pool, green gardens and expansive terraces for the apartments, with extra communal outdoor space, will complete the stylish interiors. Strang is local to Coconut Grove and has had lots of experience in the area – his portfolio includes a slew of residential work in Miami.
The Grove’s growing popularity and the winning team of designers are sure to make this new addition a hit. 'Retaining its calm and tranquil nature, Coconut Grove has quietly become one of the most desired destinations to live in the United States,' explain Oscar Rodriguez and Ricardo Vadia, principals of ROVR Development. 'A host of iconic innovators, pioneers, artists and adventurers have called the Grove home since its founding. Today, that rich history is evidenced by its composition of residents and distinguishable architecture and design. The Fairchild will pay homage to this elegant past while elevating its bright future.'
The development is scheduled to break ground in early 2017, with final completion planned for spring 2018.
