Demolition Underway At 710 Edge Property

Demolition is now underway at the 710 Edge property in Edgewater, according to One Thousand Group.

Sales will be launching soon for a new project, developer Louis Birdman wrote on Instagram. It will be an ultra-luxury tower, developer Kevin Venger wrote.

Plans were filed with Miami planners in 2021 for a 55 story, 649-foot tower on the site with:

  • 70 residential units
  • 193 parking spaces
  • 16,489 square feet of commercial/restaurant/retail
  • rooftop helipad
  • public baywalk with landscaping and lighting

Additional photos and videos of the demolition site taken today by Ryan RC Rea can be viewed here.

i always wonder how often any of the helipads on these buildings will actually get used

None of them have ever been used to date, except for 1000 Museum hosting workout classes on theirs.

Thats the pitch; now the reality is that it’s a PR gimmick.

I’ll stay posted. I’ve been reading “flying car” articles for 20 years.

The technology for flying vehicles of various sorts has been around. The current iteration is a variant of a drone. It’s not the technology that’s a barrier, it’s passing legislation that makes these things “street legal” (or air legal technically) and all the red tape that will go along with the concept of citizens suddenly flying around miami in personal flying vehicles.

If you think our government is going to switch to the adoption of personal flying vehicles by the end of the 2020’s you haven’t been paying attention to how long it’s taking just to switch fuel sources.

The Empire State building had a flashy “air travel of the future!” gimmick too – it’s spire was originally meant for what, at the time, was considered the future of air travel (blimps) much like today’s ever-present “flying cars are just around the corner!” hype.

But thats all it is and all it was back then – hype to sell a building on an unproven, hypothetical technology that may or may not come to pass.

Side note: the drivers of *this* city having access to *flying* vehicles is a truly terrifying thought. It’s like i95, but 2,000 feet in the air!

This tower is beautiful! it reminds me of 1000 Museum, as well as the slender towers of NY. The continued investment in Edgewater will transform the area!

It’s been made clear this isn’t the final design.

It is the same architect of record and developers as 1000 museum. ODP was the architect of record and Zaha was the designer! I am sure Zaha Hadid would not be happy with the same details being used inappropriately on another project! The curves and proportions are totally wrong! Complete knock off of 1000 museum but in a BAD way. One thousand museum anorexic style!. No originality!!

Another amazing addition to Edgewater, still plenty of lots or low rise older apartments that need towers on them

Not really, edgewater floods so much, traffic is terrible and it wasn’t designed to be a dense walkable area. Build these types of high end condos around the metro and keep bayfront as a park and low rises.

High end buyers want to look at Biscayne Bay not Metrorail tracks.

Not only that, putting a parking garage further down the street on a separate parcel is awful too.

IMHO Missoni is the best design. Elysee looks like a joke.

Hello From Miami 2033

More tall development to an area that doesn’t even have a metro? come on developers and Miami politicians. Quit incentivizing super dense bayfront and incentivize lux dense development around convenience and walkability.

Hello from reality today

The bay front lots ae so expensive that higher density is required to make projects profitable. Not so for the lots inland.

DWNTWNR

Hate to break it to you, but the density of the waterfront lots is the same as the inland lots. The waterfront lots are just smaller, so they have to go vertical to achieve the same density. Blu27 on Biscayne and 27th St is 330 units on a little over 2 acres of land which is a little over 150 dwelling units per acre. 710 Edge is 70 units at 0.46 acres, which is 150 dwelling units per acre.

The parking garage on a separate parcel of land should have never been allowed. It’s a waste of that vacant land, and I find it hard to believe a building with only 70 residential units couldn’t fit a garage with less than 100 spaces on site.

Why? It’s nice when buildings have a cohesive element and it’s different enough to not look like a copy.
