The Grove at Grand Bay luxury residential towers in the Coconut Grove neighborhood of Miami, Florida, are built on a PENETRON ADMIX-treated concrete foundation. Inaugurated in May, both of the visually distinctive towers are almost sold out.

The amazing architectural design of the towers is a notable milestone in the quickly evolving skyline of the Miami area. In a city famous for its Art Deco and Mediterranean-style architecture, the hyper-modernist design of the new Grove at Grand Bay towers was designed by the renowned Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) architects. Both towers are 20 floors high; the 96 luxury condos (59 units in the North Tower, 37 units in the South Tower) all have breathtaking views of Biscayne Bay.

Located only 18 feet (5.2 m) above sea level and featuring a rooftop pool on both the North & South Towers, PENETRON was tapped for a durable waterproofing solution.

The originally specified conventional waterproofing system and dewatering of the job site became problematic early in the project. CEMEX offered a PENETRON ADMIX-treated concrete mix as a solution, which was used for the building foundation elements. The results were seamless.
