20+ Story Tower Planned At 2501 Biscayne In Edgewater With 250 Apartments

A developer is planning to build an apartment tower with over 20 stories on Biscayne Boulevard in Edgewater.

Arch Companies and Infinity Real Estate will build the new project at 2501 Biscayne, across from the 19-story 2500 Biscayne tower (now called Wynwood Bay) co-owned by Infinity that was completed in 2017, according to The Real Deal.

The new building will have about 250 rental units. Wynwood Bay has 156 units.

Latin Cafe was once located on the 2501 Biscayne property.

Up to 36 stories are permitted by zoning, but the developers plan to keep the new tower in the 20+ story range.

The new project will also include commercial space with food and beverage use.

Design is underway, with groundbreaking expected in late 2022.

Both of the co-developers are based in New York.

why build higher if only 20 stories needed for the 250 units? Is there some ego thing involved here?

Not everything needs to be 1000 feet, this works well for the area

At least build to the permitted 36 stories.

A twenty story + building is okay, as long as the design isn’t crappy. And the building will be better than what’s there now.

Variety is good. Don’t want every building at the same height.

You mean incur the cost of 16 additional stories that aren’t needed just to have “variety”????

As long as it’s not a crappy at 2500 Biscayne. Even without considering it ruined a historic building, it’s a boring box with ugly balcony placement.

Expect more of the same. What do you expect for a non-view apartment project? It will likely be Melo derivative.
