Mr. C Residences Coconut Grove is the first residential development for Italian hospitality company Cipriani, and this sleek new waterfront tower is bringing old-world hospitality and European glamour to Miami’s most historic neighborhood. Conceptualized by brothers Ignazio and Maggio Cipriani, the fourth generation of the family that built an empire around the now-international Harry’s Bar, the overall vibe is simple, sophisticated, and decidedly nautical. Exteriors by Miami-based architecture firm Arquitectonica were inspired by the sailboats that dot Biscayne Bay, while interiors by New York-based design studio Meyer Davis combine high-gloss wood, blue accents, and yacht-inspired shapes (such as the porthole-like mirrors in the master bathroom). Expansive and thoughtful amenities, including an entire floor dedicated to wellness and a private poolside outpost of Bellini Bar, are complemented by a dedication to service. “The hospitality business is part of our DNA,” said Ignazio.

Acclaimed architecture firm Arquitectonica is known for its innovative use of glass, steel, color, and texture. For this 21-story tower, lead architect Raymond Fort wanted to create something that would fit into the landscape of Coconut Grove, Miami’s oldest neighborhood. “It felt very organic to use the curves taken from a sailboat’s spinnaker,” he said. “When it’s full of wind, every side is a different radius.”
South of Downtown Miami, directly on Biscayne Bay, Coconut Grove is Miami’s first neighborhood—and one of its most important. Settled in 1825, the area attracted artists and writers, including Robert Frost, Tennessee Williams, and John Singer Sargent, during the early and mid-twentieth century, and continues to be an anchor for Miami’s creative community. It’s also one of the most verdant neighborhoods, with 16 parks and green spaces, including the Vizcaya Gardens and the tropical Kampong Garden.
The tower’s 112 residences range in size from one bedroom to five bedrooms and from 650 to 3,645 square feet. Throughout, lofty ceilings, floor-to-ceiling glass, and outdoor terraces emphasize the views of Biscayne Bay and Coconut Grove’s lush parks and gardens. Interiors by New York-based studio Meyer Davis were inspired by both the waterfront location and by the Mr. C brand. They feature yacht-like shapes and laminated wood paneling paired with custom-designed ITALKRAFT kitchens with terrazzo and quartz countertops and porcelain floors.
In addition to a waterfront location on Biscayne Bay and a coveted address in Coconut Grove, the amenities at Mr. C Residences are on par with what you’d expect from a five-star resort. The full-floor wellness level includes a Peloton spin studio, a yoga room, and a spa with sauna and steam rooms. In addition to the pool deck (with, as mentioned, its exclusive Bellini Bar), there’s a garden-level lap pool for more athletic water pursuits. The billiard room, library, and screening lounge—and one of the chicest children’s play areas we’ve ever seen—bring the offerings to an elegant level.
