An Application Has Just Been Filed To Build Another 649 Foot Tower In Edgewater

An application to build yet another 649 foot tower in Edgewater has just been filed.

According to the filing with the Federal Aviation Administration, the new tower would replace two buildings along the water on 29th Street.

The application was submitted on July 6.

It states that the new tower would rise 646 feet above ground, or 649 feet above sea level, if approved by the FAA.

649 feet is the maximum permitted height by the FAA in the Edgewater area due to the proximity of Miami International Airport’s runways, and a number of other towers have either been proposed or recently built at that height.

Two properties appear to be included in the project site for the new tower. The Harbor 29 condo, which has 15 units and was built in 1972, is the larger of the two. A 10-unit apartment building next door constructed in 1954 also appears to be included.

The 57-story Elysee tower was completed this year nearby and is among those built to the maximum height in Edgewater. Its height is 644 feet above ground, and 649 feet above sea level.

Knew that was just a matter of time. Hopefully the folks in that building are getting a good payout!

Don’t worry, people moving from north east coast states to Miami will buy them up.

HAD huge potential if you bought there 10-20 years ago like me and my wife did. We enjoyed some great returns on property flips and continue to rent out a few units but I agree with most that sea level rise and now the disaster with condo collapsing is placing all of that in jeopardy. Insurance rates have been and will continue to go up like crazy as the evidence of ever more flooding continues to roll in and aside from that precon is just too overpriced right now to make any good returns on. That’s my two cents

agreed, i think investing wise heading inland some to areas not directly on the bay will be better. That area of edgewater always floods. I remember seeing video of a car floating down the street. Not sure i’d want to by a million dollar condo with that happening

oh yes, you’re definitely right about that, MASSIVE flooding in edgewater right by the northern part of Margaret Pace park and you can imagine how disgustingly that water is where the trash all collects plus the dog poop from the dog park. I had totally forgotten about that until you mentioned it. The crazy part too is how that’s exactly the area where they’ve built all the latest modern condos which also makes no sense with the utter lack of a nice connected baywalk there. Totally not worth the prices they’re asking for in that area these days

When infrastructure continues to fail, people will eventually agree to pay up for repair and upgrades to keep coastal cities originally underwater (i.e. marshland) above sea level. We don’t even know the reason for the Surfside condo collapse yet. No need to Chicken Little it.

When you try to walk the current baywalk their property is blocking two of the parts. With it gone it could connect more of bay walk.

Hopefully site will get a beautifully designed building, it will be a welcome addition to Edgewater neighborhood. Also a new building at this location will allow for the expansion of the baywalk and complete the connection of another important corner of the bay front

This new building would be on property zoned “T6-36A-L”. My understanding is that this limits buildings to 36 stories. Has anyone looked into the zoning requirements??

No more street closures on the bay! The streets need to be kept open, with views clear down the street lines to the water, like a civilized city.

Then you clearly don’t understand what a so-called “civilized city” is all about and will do.

It’s not a matter of civilization, it’s a matter of aesthetics and city design. US cities are built with the priority to keep waterfronts private. Look at Miami Beach, only Ocean Drive has the beach area public and the buildings on the other side of the street. The rest of the city is totally built for the privatization of the water fronts. Now look at Rio and Nice where the beaches and water front areas are public. What a difference….

You can’t walk down the street to water in a “civilized city” like Rio without being mugged.

it’s good that they’re constructing new buildings on this area, the biggest eyesores on the skyline are on the edgewater side. there are lots of old, small, poorly maintained buildings and they have the best waterviews. I hope they are a thing of the past very soon

With all of the building happening on Biscayne Boulevard and now along the bayfront, simply extending Metromover northward as proposed may be insufficient. What may also be needed is a transit circulator within Edgewater.
