Florida YIMBY Terra Group, One Thousand Group, And Major Food Group Team Up To Reveal 58-Story 'Vila' In Edgewater, Miami
Miami-based real estate developers Terra Group and One Thousand Group partnered with Major Food Group to reveal the Villa Residences, a lustrous 58-story residential tower planned for 710 Northeast 29th Street in Edgewater, Miami. Local architect, Kurt Dannwolf of ODP Architecture & Design, leads the architectural design team, while Vicky Charles of Charles & Co will lead the interior design. The 650-foot-tall crystalline structure will feature a copper color-clad exoskeletal design containing 60 – 70 units. The building will offer expansive full-floor vertical “villas” with 360-degree views of Biscayne Bay and the city, personalized service, curated amenities, exceptional design, and privacy.
Villa Residences marks the first collaboration between Terra, led by CEO David Martin, and One Thousand Group, co-founded by Kevin Venger and Louis Birdman, along with partner Michael Konig. The project unites visionaries from acclaimed hospitality, private club, and residential experiences to redefine modern living. Terra is renowned for collaborating with Pritzker Prize-winning architects like Bjarke Ingels, Rem Koolhaas, and Arquitectonica to create its avant-garde portfolio, featuring projects like Grove at Grand Bay and Park Grove. Meanwhile, One Thousand Group is the driving force behind Miami’s iconic One Thousand Museum, designed by the esteemed Zaha Hadid Architects.
Major Food Group, the hospitality powerhouse behind CARBONE, Contessa, Dirty French, and Sadelle’s, will develop every aspect of the hospitality experience at the Villa. The program includes a superior collection of resident-only lounges, bars, and restaurants that will reflect MFG’s style of decadence, impeccable service, and expertise in creating dynamic environments.
This development also represents the first collaboration between Major Food Group and interior designer Vicky Charles of Charles & Co. Charles is known for her work as a former design director at Soho House and for her commissions for clients such as Sony Music, Goop, George, and Amal Clooney, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, and David and Victoria Beckham. Charles & Co will lead the interiors for the Villa, working closely with Major Food Group to perfect the residential and hospitality environments.
Co-Founder of Major Food Group, Mario Carbone, will develop best-in-class residential kitchens that merge sophistication with practicality, drawing on his signature sense of style and extensive experience in renowned dining destinations worldwide.
The architectural design team will work alongside global structural design firm DeSimone Consulting Engineers, known for designing over 10,000 buildings, including high-rises in New York and Miami. One of the world’s most renowned landscape architects, Enzo Enea of Switzerland, will oversee the landscape architecture.
The image below, shared by Louis Birdman on Instagram, unveils Villa’s comprehensive layout. The first floor will feature a sophisticated restaurant and bar with an outdoor terrace, and the second will host another dining establishment. A bay walk and docks will enhance the waterfront appeal while residents and guests access the elegant lobby through a covered drop-off area.
A wealth of amenities spanning the third to fifth floors, including a spa, salon, saunas, steam rooms, plunge pools, locker rooms, relaxation lounge, state-of-the-art fitness center, yoga rooms, outdoor pool, game pool room, screening room, and entertainment lounge. Levels 6 through 53 will accommodate four and five-bedroom residences, with the 54th and 55th floors offering exclusive five-bedroom penthouse units. In a nod to One Thousand Museum, the building will be crowned with a helipad.
