Coconut Grove Development ‘Markers Grove Isle’ Rebrands as ‘Vita’
Jun 22, 2021 June 22, 2021
Luxury condo development project Markers Grove Isle rebranded as Vita Residences this June, after lengthy legal issues. The rebrand is a signal the Coconut Grove condo project is moving ahead after years of being stalled, making it one of the most eagerly awaited new Miami condo development projects, and a long-awaited addition to an island where nothing has been built in several decades.
Sitting on the 21-acre, private island, Vita represents boutique, luxury waterfront living on Coconut Grove’s Grove Isle – forward-thinking and unlike anything built before it. Developed by Grove Isle Associates, construction on this island property is expected to begin by early 2022.
Vita Grove Isle Residences
If you know anything about Grove Isle, you may be curious about the design of this mid-rise project and how it will blend with the other three towers on the island. The collection of 5-story buildings will be set hugging the island’s serene eastern shoreline in modern, curvilinear architecture. Featuring thoughtful designs by the world-renowned CallisonRTKL architecture group, this curved enclave will offer 65 modern residences and 14 penthouses. Each unit is designed and crafted so that residents can embrace the best of indoor-outdoor living, with 15-foot-deep balconies, 65 feet of linear bay frontage, and the visual treat of unending water views.
Calming and neutral interiors at Vita will be designed by Bernardi + Peschard, carrying the Mexican firm’s signature style of creating dialogue between spaces with rich materials. Fine-tuned to be in harmony with their island setting, residences will feature 8’ interior Italian doors, frameless glass balconies, 11-12.5 feet soaring-high ceilings, artfully crafted custom baths with natural stone, soaking tubs, and rain showers.
Chef’s kitchens at these bespoke residences will be outfitted with Italian cabinetry by Boffi, plus fully integrated appliances by Sub-Zero and Wolf. Residents will also love the luxury of having access to private elevators with digital security.
Vita Grove Isle Penthouse Collection
For the ultimate in private, island living, the penthouse collection at Vita includes 14 jaw-dropping residences, each with its own roof deck complete with a private infinity-edge pool, expansive entertainment area, and full summer kitchen. See the floor plans here.
Vita Grove Isle Amenities
Vita is set to be built with a new restaurant and club for all Grove Isle Residents. The original club, restaurant, gym and tiki bar was demolished in 2018. The crown jewel of the island, the Cliff Drysdale Tennis Center, complete with 8 clay courts, a professional-grade Tennis Program visited by the best in the game, and a pro shop, will also be restored.
For those wondering, the name change of this beautiful island enclave has been brought about to create a world-class residential community in harmony with its neighbors. The developer has also agreed to repair the Grove Isle bridge, seawalls, and restore the island’s tennis courts to build a community that is welcoming for all neighbors.
