Construction Update On CMC Group's Vita At Grove Isle In Coconut Grove


One year has passed since Ugo Colombo’s CMC Group broke ground on Vita at Grove Isle and everything is moving along as scheduled. The seven-story boutique condominium has now surpassed the halfway mark of their 2-year build schedule and is nearing top-off.

Located on the Northern pointe of Coconut Grove’s 20-acre private island named Grove Isle, the seven-story project is deceiving in that the curved structure is actually three separate buildings that are joined. This allows for the curved exterior to maximize the view for each of the 65 private residences.

In January of 2024, CMC Group was awarded a massive $239 million construction loan from Bank OZK. This infusion of financing will complete the tower, taking into consideration the strength of the developer and the sales contracts received from the pre-construction selling period.

It is expected that the conjoined buildings will reach full height by the summer, allowing for closings to begin in the summer of 2025.

Developer Ugo Colombo’s Thoughts

One of the aspects of this project that stuck out to Ugo Colombo early on was the location at 5 Grove Isle Drive is truly unlike any other in the city. Not only is it the last available site for a project on Grove Isle, but the last waterfront development site in all of Coconut Grove.

Pairing the last waterfront development site with Coconut Grove’s new status as the “it” community for the area’s elite, something truly substantial had to be planned. The ambiance that he planned was 65 boutique residences that are evocative of living in waterfront single family estates, with the level of convenience and service that condominium living is able to offer.

In a statement, Mr. Colombo said, “Vita at Grove Isle will be the cornerstone of Grove Isle’s renaissance, bringing back the spirit of its glory days while ushering in a new era of luxury that the island has yet to see. Once complete, Vita will be a haven for residents and its island neighbors who seek a waterfront escape, complete with a Michelin-quality restaurant and clubhouse that’s just minutes from a walkable, family-friendly neighborhood with endless live-work-play options.”

Those who are curious of the quality that comes with an Ugo Colombo-developed project can see some examples of his work locally at the famed Grovernor House, which was completed in 2006. In Brickell, he added towers that include Santa Maria from 1996, Epic Residences from 2008 and Brickell Flatiron, which was completed in 2019.

One of the most notable characteristics I can point out as a professional in the local marketplace for over 15 years, the projects developed by Ugo Colombo do not show their age. Even buildings he built 30 years ago stand tall in the skyline with timeless design and quality. This will certainly ring true for Vita at Grove Isle as well as the newly announced Four Seasons Coconut Grove that will be built just across the private causeway.

Inside Vita at Grove Isle

As the construction wraps up on the structure, making way for the interior finishes, let’s talk about what those will entail. The project is designed to offer resort-style amenities to a select few, this includes a Vista at Grove Isle Club.

Vista at Grove Isle Club is a private club exclusive to residents. The club offers a pool and adjacent bar with night-lit tennis, padel and pickleball. Guests will also be able to enjoy gourmet restaurant and bar options and access to the private marina.

The residence-style layouts include private elevators to each home with expansive views from the 13-ft deep terraces. The kitchens are stylishly integrated with concealed appliance suites, book-matched marble backsplashes and counters and masterfully crafted stonework.

Layouts of the exclusive residences include three-, four-, and four-plus-den layouts that start at $6 million. Exclusive penthouses with rooftop terraces measuring 6,600 square feet and private pools are priced from $19.5 million.
