32-Story Metro Edgewater Now Under Construction, Will Have 279 Apartments

Construction is underway on a 32-story tower called Metro Edgewater.

The tower is being built next to the Paraiso Bay complex, and was previously called Paraiso Place during the approval process.

A construction permit is still in review by the city, even as foundation work is now underway.

A tree permit and demolition permit has been approved and issued. A building formerly housing a rehab center known as The Village was demolished to make way for the new tower.

According to the construction permit, Metro Edgewater will include:

  • 279 apartments
  • 4,230 square feet of retail

There will also be a parking garage with about 300 spaces.

The developers are taking special care to design the ground level for pedestrians, including building a new promenade.

Apartments in the building will be targeted to millennials and young professionals, the developer previously told Miami planning officials.

The tower will top off at a height of 373 feet above ground.

The pedestrian paseo design on this project is excellent! More ped connections east of Biscayne in Edgewater are needed and appreciated!

“Apartments in the building will be targeted to millennials and young professionals”

Meaning most of these units will be micro apartments.

That’s okay, being that people who live in Miami don’t actually wear or need a lot of clothes.

And it’ll be at the top of market rate rentals. Sad how developers are pushing us backwards!

I don’t think so.. the population is increasing and the amount of buildable land is decreasing so I think developers are actually taking us forward.

Agree, people don’t realize how expensive the land is in Edgewater. In the next 10 years we will see the Edgewater neighborhood very high end I believe. As long as a developer buys the Wendys, Taco Bell and MC D’S 😂

Be glad its not London or Hong Kong, where people live in pods because housing is so expensive. You can’t blame zoning and parking requirements either, because there are none.
