14-Story Edgewater Condo Tower Will Be Demolished & Replaced With Multiple Towers Of Up To 60 Stories

An unnamed developer is buying out a condo in Edgewater, with plans to demolish the 14-story tower and replace it.

A building as tall as 60 stories can be built on the property.

The developer will submit plans for the new project to the city by May, a broker involved in the transaction told the Herald.

Related Group previously submitted an offer in 2019 to buy a portion of the property from owners of the bayfront condo building for $24 million.

The 2019 Related proposal called for two towers with 200 units on an area that was being used as a surface parking area, a tennis court and recreation area.

The new proposal from the unknown developer calls for the 14-story Biscayne 21 condo building itself to be demolished and replaced by multiple buildings.

Biscayne 21 has 192 units and was built in 1964.

I knew the days were numbered for that old building in that prime bay location. I hope they come up with a stunning piece of architecture.

Forget about it. It’s Miami. King of cigarette box buildings. The only thing that changes is the shape and juxtaposition of balconies

Yeah, you would have to travel several hundred feet north to Elysee to find a non-cigarette building box building (by Arquitectonica).

^This. The developer will be required to put in a baywalk and it will fill in a gap. It would be continuous from Pace Park up to 23rd Street once this corner gets filled in.

Not just 23rd. This is the final piece. It’ll go all the way up past missoni once island bay is completed.

That’s a big condo buyout (usually hard to do). I wonder what the developer was offering the unit owners.

You aren’t kidding. They need approval of 100% of the owners. Very tough deal. Surprised the broker is talking about it so much.

100%? Normally it’s 90% no? Any idea on the sale price of this one? Saw the high numbers the brokers were saying last yr – wonder if it got even close.

Not true. You do not need 100%

I used to own a 1 / 1.5 in the building. Current owners of that model are getting close to $700K. Ouch for me!

Did you speak with someone in the building who still owns? Interested to hear the source of this info and how reliable it is.

Good for them though – lots of dough for those units. 3 bed owners must be walking with a cool mil.

RIP, buildings far more worthy than this that were destroyed in Edgewater for parking garages of giant Related cigarette boxes.

I think the worst builder in that regard has been Melo, not Related.

I’m sure there will be quite a few Elysee buyers that will miss their unobstructed views south to the park and Miami skyline.
