32-Story Metro Edgewater Gets FAA Approval To Install Tower Crane For Construction

Another large project in Edgewater could soon begin construction.

Metro Edgewater is planned as a 32-story tower on 31st Street next to the Paraiso Bay complex.

The tower is proposed to include 279 units that the developer says will be a magnet for millennials and young professionals.

According to an approval letter issued by the Federal Aviation Administration, the construction crane will rise 490 feet above ground, or 498 feet above sea level. The construction schedule lists a start date beginning in January 2021, with Fortis Design and Build overseeing construction.

The tower itself has a permanent height of 373 feet.

Developers of the project told Miami Planning officials last year that they are taking particular care to design the ground level, including building a pedestrian promenade.

City records show that a building permit was applied for earlier this year, but has yet to be approved.

The crappy post-war buildings, who cares? The beautiful 1920s Mediterranean Revival and Mission-style apartment houses and two-story homes, historically designate and preserve them via TDR to build higher.

Just need higher sea walls and no hurricanes and they’ll be just fine. Don’t forget the the extra fuel storage tanks for the generators needed to power up all them sump pumps.

If you’re referring to The Village (which was a behavioral health facility), that closed a while back and has been/is being renovated.

If you know anything about the neighborhood you would know that the half-way house has been closed for a while.
