A brand new stretch of baywalk is now open to the public in Edgewater.
The new baywalk is behind the new 57-story Elysee tower, which is nearing completion as the tallest building in the area.
Developers are required to build a public baywalk when building on their property.
Existing properties are exempt from the requirement, however. That has led to a fragmented baywalk.
Related Group did make a push for a baywalk called the Biscayne Line while marketing their Edgewater developments, but there hasn’t been any progress to add a baywalk to existing properties since then.
The Elysee baywalk could soon be connected south though with a new section at the Biscayne 21 condo, which is expected to be redeveloped.
