Designed by Pritzker Award winning architect Jean Nouvel and developed by JDS Development Group, Monad Terrace is under construction and scheduled for completion at the end of 2019.
Composed of 59 individually designed waterfront residences around a glittering lagoon, Monad Terrace provides brilliant light and expansive private outdoor space sheltered by climbing gardens of native plants and flowers. Nouvel artfully directs the play of reflections and water throughout the project, bouncing light into living spaces, while the lagoon and swimming pool draw the feeling of Biscayne Bay deep into the heart of the property, creating what Nouvel has dubbed “the reflection machine.” Monad Terrace’s unique honeycomb sawtooth façade captures, diffuses, and reflects incoming light, simultaneously framing views and providing privacy.

Each of the South Beach condos for sale at Monad Terrace is designed for seamless indoor-outdoor living, with broad and deep terraces going far beyond the conventional balcony to almost double the living space of many residences. Whether used for dining al fresco, sunbathing, or easy access to multiple interior rooms, the terraces’ spectacular views of the bay and/or South Beach make them a perfect outdoor oasis.
From the beginning—and always—it has been important to me to put the spirit of place in all my work. Here in Miami, I wanted to create a building that is like the reflection of the sun on the water.Jean Nouvel
Nouvel’s custom designed bathrooms strike a balance of discretion and boldness. Richly veined, spacious stone countertops, stone tiled walls, and a soaking tub all combine to establish a sanctuary of repose.
The South Beach condos for sale at Monad Terrace present a limited offering of four exceptional penthouse residences – each a unique expression of Jean Nouvel’s vision. Capturing all the sparkling effects of light and water, penthouses feature Great Rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows framing panoramic views of Biscayne Bay and/or the Atlantic Ocean, as well as private rooftops with pools and dedicated, en-suite elevator access. Select penthouses offer soaring double-height ceilings to 20 feet. Master suites have awe-inspiring views, with bay-view soaking tubs in bathrooms and dual closets.
Monad Terrace will be the first condominium residence in Miami Beach to be built above updated flood and sea level elevations. The building is designed to reflect the light and water of its surroundings, while living in harmony with the time and place in which it rises. Ateliers Jean Nouvel has applied a practical awareness of our changing climate to the project—seamlessly engineering environmental responsibility and innovative climate resilience features into the building’s architecture.
By elevating the building 11.5 feet, Monad Terrace will be the first luxury condos Miami has seen be built above updated flood and sea level elevations, and the first to be constructed above West Avenue’s new height. This significantly higher grade puts all interior spaces and the garage entrance well above the flood plain, while eliminating the need to dig down to the water table to construct below-grade parking—a thoroughly practical solution to one of Miami’s most pervasive construction challenges.
