One of the most exciting new spots to buy a Miami Beach apartment, Monad Terrace has been designed to reflect and complement its surroundings. The development is the result of a collaboration between Ateliers Jean Nouvel and Kobi Karp, with a particular focus being put on the practicalities of building a residential property while our climate is changing.
As a result, there are several innovative features integrated into the development’s architecture to make it resilient and to reduce the ‘urban heat island effect’. For example, the buildings have been elevated by 11.5 ft to protect them from flooding and there are several vertical gardens on the outside of the development which provide shade and natural cooling, as well as preventing the building from reflecting heat.
One of the units within Monad Terrace is currently available for purchase, listed with Douglas Elliman. Set within an intimate building on the development that features only six full-floor residences, Residence 1A is situated near Monad Terrace’s signature lagoon and the expansive waterfront, with floor-to-ceiling windows framing the panoramic views over Biscayne Bay and downtown Miami.

The three-bedroom Residence 1A makes the most of indoor-outdoor living, featuring a light-filled, open-plan layout and over 3,800 sq ft of interior space. The residence’s interiors have been custom-designed by Ateliers Jean Novel, including teak flooring and a kitchen with Poliform cabinetry and fully integrated Gaggenau appliances. As a move-in ready residence, the property also comes with interior furnishings created in Italy by design and furniture house, Morada-Haute Furniture Boutique.
Residents of Monad Terrace also have access to a range of exclusive amenities on the development, including a sun deck overlooking Biscayne Bay, complete with a 116-ft swimming pool and hot tub. There is also a café and juice bar on-site, a wellness center, a bicycle and water sports storage room to promote active lifestyles, valet parking and an in-house concierge.
