Developer Gets FAA Approval For 649-Foot Edgewater Tower & Proposes Another

Miami’s northernmost 600-foot tower has just been approved by the Federal Aviation Administration in Edgewater.

A second tower has also just been proposed next door.

Hamilton on the Bay II, LLC, which has a Denver address, was granted approval to build a waterfront tower of up to 645 feet above ground, or 649 feet above sea level at 640 Northeast 34 Street in Edgewater.

The entity is an affiliate of Aimco.

Approval was issued on April 25.

Aimco has said the project will have two towers. The developer also intends to apply for the closure of 34th Street and creation of a public plaza.

On April 13, a proposal for another tower was submitted to the Federal Aviation Administration, on what appears to be Aimco-controlled property just west of the newly approved tower.

The newly proposed tower is planned to rise 497 feet above ground, or 502 feet above sea level.

Edgewater values going up.

The Hamilton is so classic! With 80s style aquarian and waterfalls ibside the lobby. Part corny but also nostalgic. Oldie but a goodie…

Agreed! And it will be even nicer following the refurbishments (hold-out tenant be damned).

It’s aged better than any of Related’s Edgewater crap ever will. People like living with corny waterfalls over gunmetal grey Apple Store-wannabe interiors. Leave that stuff to electronics. Houses aren’t machines for living in.

creating a public plaza is a very good idea

Why is the city facing side of all these towers are so ugly?

You already know the answer: it’s cheaper to build and the city doesn’t require better.

Why do some of you people use the elementary word “Ugly” so much when describing something you don’t like?

I became the “vocabulary police” after you became the “self-righteous, arrogant, and vain” cop of TNM internet site.

To be fair, this one ain’t bad. Far better than emergency stairwells or some ugly mural.

No closing of streets unless they guarantee 24×7 Access to general public. No closing off at sunset or otherbs

I fully support closing 34th street for a public plaza. That’s prime real estate much better uses than a dead end street. But they need to keep the bay sidewalk open during construction.

It makes sense to terminate NE 34th Street at 5th Avenue.

All these rectangular boxes are no different than the brutalistic construction of communism

This is starting to look very China, communist, USSR type buildings. No cereal box buildings please.

WDYM? the soviet-style buildings are the blocky Little Havana rentals that are painted in orange. Have you seen what a “soviet” building even looks like?

You are right, they are literally boxes and they are popping up everywhere in Little Havana.

I agree with you. Miami’s skyline is very repetitive, it has no height, no tapering, all boxes on top of podiums with some sad lightning or “art” that we have come to call “iconic”.

How would they access Hamilton on the bay + the new building if 34th st is closed?
The proposal seems off as there is a parking lot on that side that belongs to Bay Park Towers and it is currently in use

So it’s below sea level? This is me making a grimace face

People continue to ask why all these towers look exactly the same.
It is a blend of the same Miami pedestrian architects, developers, and zoning.
NYC is very different on all three counts.
But, sadness aside on our beautiful potential that is lacking- let us please force a bayfront public space where all people can enjoy the Bay and sunlight.
NYC has the amazing Hudson River. Shame on us for not promoting more riverfront and bayside spaces like we have on Miami Beach boardwalk (different City than Miami).

Handsome tower. I like how the massing comes down all the way to street.
