57-Story Missoni Baia Will Top Off In Weeks, Becoming One Of Edgewater’s Tallest

Missoni Baia is about to top off.

The 57-story tower will reach the milestone in the next few weeks, according to the project’s social media account.

Missoni Baia will top off at a height of 649 feet above sea level, which is the maximum permitted in the Edgewater.

The other tower in Edgewater that is already at the 649 foot height is Elysee, which is also 57 stories.

A total of 249 residential units are being built at Missoni.

OKO Group is the project’s developer, with architecture by Asymptote.

Delivery is still set for 2021, according to the developer’s Instagram page.

Well, most buildings you see has that sort of “glass box” look. But if your trying to get whimsical, sorry, copycat designs will get noticed very fast and called out.

What, and become Ville Radieuse? How about more architecture styles rather than glass and concrete cereal boxes?

I see it from my window and the past couple of months looked like they speed up construction. Edgewater still needs more development though

I agree completely that Edgewater needs yet more development. I think the rise of Wynwood and the Design District siphoned off a lot of the development that could have / would have occurred in Edgewater. We’ve still got plenty of empty lots along Biscayne Boulevard and N.E. 2nd Ave. We need development to come back east from Wynwood.

No, it actually goes like this.. “we need more development in blank, to go along with development in blank.”

Haha, 649 feet? O’gawd, it will be a hazard to the jet airplanes at 650 feet. 750 feet in that area, are you crazy?.. jet airplanes can’t climb to an altitude that fast to clear that height!

lol…

Sure. That is why the FAA placed the heigh restrictions at 649 feet…. just so they would build to that height and planes could hit them.

You should let the Airport and the FAA know your brilliant research. You probably went to Harvard or some Engineer schools. The FAA and airlines obviously don’t know what they are doing – well by your stupid remarks it would seem that way.

Well, lets see.. passengers on a jet airplane can breath a sigh of relief if something is built at a 649ft height limit in Edgewater and they should be very worried if something is built at a 650ft height limit. That’s some masterful deduction you have.

Gee Trump, I knew I could rely on anything you say.

Can we get an update on Una Residences please?

Vertical construction is going to take awhile to start as they are building the underground parking garage. It’s a complicated and expensive process so until that is done, the floor count won’t start to rise.

Yea 3 levels of underground parking right on the water is not an easy job.

This, along with Island Bay and Elysee will become an icon.

Because it is iconic

Island Bay will be cancelled for not following Miami 21 and blocking the view corridors of two streets. Melo is doing a great service building tons of affordable units (while making millions) but is not above the zoning code.

Possibly, but they let Related do the same thing with Icon Bay, and Paraiso Bay. It may come down to how much you are willing to grease the wheels…

Related is above to Miami21, considering they turned Edgewater, one of Miami’s earliest suburbs yet at the human scale with beautiful pre-war single-family and apartment houses, into a vertical suburb with blocks spanned by parking garages serving bayfront condos with ugly stairwells backing to the west.

this is about the fifth time you whine about this, are they blocking your views?. the city of miami has to think about what is best for the image of the city and the majority of the people not just a few

Anonymous

Lol you must not be that bright, what’s best for the few, is allowing the developer to block everyone else’s views by breaking the rules. What’s best for majority is maintaining view corridors for all of central and west Edgewater to continue to fill in and still see the water down the streets.

Anonymous

lol the majority is not the few who have water views, but the ones who benefit from the all the millions in taxpayer revenue the city gets.the hundreds of jobs this project creates, the profits the developer makes which will be reinvested in more projects. if they are breaking the rules why were they approved?. this project was approved because it’s benefits the majority.but for you keeping outdated rules it’s more important.

And if they design a project that plays by the rules there will still be impact fees and taxes paid. Your logic is flawed and ignorant.

I do think that buildings on the water should have been shorter while those farther in from the water should have been taller. Then there would be more views for more people. Still, I don’t know how that would look from a marketing / public relations / tourist advertisement perspective.

Anonymous

The reason buildings in Miami are built taller the closer they are to the shoreline while those farther in from the water are shorter is because of this suburban type of zoning mentality, and the airport.

Anonymous

Wrong. Bad mentality. It’s Econ 101. Demand for lux units is higher right on the waterfront, hence taller buildings to meet demand.

My salary is 200k a year and can’t afford to buy here. Average HOUSE HOLD income in Miami is 47k. Houston we have a problem.

Plenty of modest inland condos in South Florida can be afforded on that modest $47k, especially with today’s mortgage rates.

200k can comfortably get you a 600k place at today’s rates, assuming you have 20% down and no wage garnishments and nothing crazy like a 900/mo car or boat payment. 600k is a damn nice place around here.

You can most definitely live at Missioni. As long as you can afford $5,000 per month. I can get you a 2 bedroom. Email me at DBadamo@relatedisg.com

There’s only about 30 units left. I’m more than happy to assist!
