Douglas Elliman proudly announces the launch of the Glass House Project, a collection of six petite starter homes in Coconut Grove. Listed by DE’s Agent Roque Castro and crafted by renowned local architect, William Hamilton Arthur IV, the six homes, each ranging approximately 1,900 to 2,500 SF, will feature interior courtyards and windows that blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living. Developed by LointerHome, construction is expected to begin at the end of the 2Q of this year and the project is scheduled to be completed in late December.
As a way to celebrate the construction of the homes, LointerHome and creative studio Louis1978 are working together to bring exposure to these 5,000 square foot vacant lots through art. By installing ten foot sculptures painted by local artists, the developer hopes to revive the west side of Coconut Grove by activating two lots with local art installations during Miami’s Coconut Grove Arts Festival on February 18th. The three day event over President’s Day weekend attracts approximately 120,000 visitors each year to Coconut Grove, showcasing the works of 360 internationally recognized artists. In the ensuing six weeks, the remaining four lots will be activated for public display and community use.
“This is the first step in an exciting chain of events. Sculptures made out of 10 foot tall planks will be installed in various configurations for the artists to paint with any theme they choose. When the lots are shovel ready, the planks will be taken down and used during the construction of the single family homes, which will revive this historic neighborhood back to its vibrant community feel,” said Amanda De Seta, Founder of LointerHome.
Located in the center of Coconut Grove, the Glass Houses will be ideally situated along William and Charles avenues east of Plaza Street in a serene multi-block neighborhood. Priced from $700,000, the Glass House Project is exclusively marketed and sold by Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
