391-Unit Biscayne Beach Gets TCO, Lights Up At Night

Edgewater’s 391-unit Biscayne Beach is just about ready to turn over condo units to their new residents after the building obtained a Temporary Certificate of Occupancy last week.

Completion is almost exactly three years after work began, and one year after top off.

Groundbreaking took place in late April 2014, with the foundation pour in November 2014. Top off at 51 stories was early May 2016.

Closings are expected to begin shortly.

The decorative architectural feature at the top of the 585-foot tower is lit up in multiple changing colors that can be seen for miles around at night.

Hai guys, this is a city. If you don’t expect any lights in a city, move to the country. Kthxbai

Unnecessary lights from irresponsible design (unfortunately allowed by city). Show us another city with a dozen single-loaded corridor high-rises blanketed with visible emergency exit security lights all the way up one side. Even Sunny Isles oceanfront has fully enclosed buildings.

No, not really. It’s just a Miami problem that will stain our skyline forever. No one else does this and I don’t know why we have to either. Most people will see these buildings from the back side, not the front (including the residents and their guests). We are littering the bay with buildings that look like 50-60 story Motel 6’s facing the city. We can do so much better with some simple regulations and make Miami look as good as the world class city it can be. Allowing buildings like this is short sighted and only benefits the developer, while ruining aesthetics of buildings and future development to the west. I’m assuming most people commenting here are realtors because I don’t see how any half-respected architect could possibly think single-loaded buildings look nice or are beneficial to the urban fabric.

If they move to the country, they’ll then complain about “Starlight” pollution.

Thanks man…I’m tired of people who whine about every little insignificant item that they feel insults their sensibilities instead of just being proud of the bold and beautiful new look of our city’s skyline that a lot of knew always had the ability to morph into.

an absolutely beautiful building….developer really went all out with landscaping and not cheap garbage either…..love the light on top but i think would look classier if it remained constant at one color scheme…nicest addition yet to edgewater

The bayside is nice but the back is ugly. The fire escape with the lights on the city side should be illegal. It’s like a F U to the city.

We are living in the XXI Century, it is sad time the architects didn’t take into consideration every elevation of their design.
This exactly the fame problem we are facing with the new Frost Museum of Science.
