MG Developer, the firm building the Biltmore Square neighborhood just west of downtown, has won the 2019 Addison Mizner Award (AMA) for its Beatrice Row of grand townhomes. The project, designed by the Coral Gables-based firm of de la Guardia Victoria Architects & Urbanists, earned the award as the best Multi-Family Residential project for its advancement of the ideals of classicism and traditional design in architecture.
Located at 744 Biltmore Way, the Beatrice Row of contiguous townhouses runs the length of the block, from corner to corner, in the same way that English Terrace housing was originally built. The inspiration comes from the Royal Crescent in Bath, England, by John Wood the Younger, and the terrace row homes in London by John Nash. The awards event, which was held on February 8 in Palm Beach, celebrated the achievement of the finest practitioners in the fields of Architecture, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture, Urbanism as well as Craftsmanship and Construction. Beatrice Row was awarded the AMA medal by a panel of jurors selected from among architects, designers and academics recognized for their knowledge and experience in the practice and theory of classical and traditional architecture.
“We are thrilled that Beatrice Row has received such an honorable recognition for its beauty and essence that elevates the status of Coral Gables living and design,” said Alirio Torrealba, CEO of MG Developer, during the award ceremony.
