Edge On The River Moves Forward With FAA Application

The developer behind the tall, narrow Edge on the River tower proposed in Brickell has filed building plans with the Federal Aviation Administration.

According to the filing submitted yesterday, the tower would top off at 625 feet above ground, or 630 feet above sea level.

In 2014, the agency granted approval to a previous developer for a similarly sized building.

The new proposal includes a 198-room hotel and 70 residential condo units. Miami officials have said it is compliant with zoning rules, despite the unusually slim building size.

A rooftop restaurant is also planned, along with a ground floor restaurant.

Leo Macedo of the Brick Group is the developer, and Kobi Karp is the architect.

I swear I will go to that place with a hammer if i have to and chip away at it if that river walk area is not persevered. These developers need to respect public areas!

And Since when can they just build a boardwalk for boats without a permit from the river committee. Doubt that will ever happen, and I’m guessing they will count that as square footage for the river walk to get approval.

I agree… why harangue over this minor river when there are bay fronts and miles of beaches on the Atlantic to go to?

You can literally see in the plans and renderings that its intact and improved so….Unless you prefer to preserve the current parking lot.

Yea just like it was preserved in the Melo case. It took a lawsuite and a long time.

Gross. This encroaches on the river walk and shouldn’t be allowed.

What river walk?
Besides, what percentage of locals actually go to Bayside? Oh, so we have to build something else to inspire us to stroll by a water walk?

The back end facing brickell is HIDEOUS

Also when you see these FAA stats about Height AGL and AMSL, and you get a difference of 5 feet, that’s alarming. That means it’s only a couple feet above current king tides, let alone storm surge.

There’s no way there’s that much riverwalk space and building space.

Honestly the lot is not that small. They put up highrises on lots that size in NY and other global cities all the time. Maybe not with a trillion parking spots but whatever. It’s nice.

It looks terrible. Please be a flip for land assembly for something bigger and better, encompassing all those industrial-like low-rises and small streets ending abruptly along the river. Maybe Swire will take it for a BCC waterfront extention?

If people like it and want to live there, why are you complaining?

If this isn’t a flip, who would want to live there with what prices would be commanded? It faces west, directly at the FPL substation. This block needs good river interaction and connections with a myriad of uses, not condos and a hotel blindsided by nothing in the back. I doubt it can even compete with other proposed towers commanding better views like Chetrit’s Miami River project and One River Point.

Anyone who complains about whats not happening on this river right now is ignoring the fact that what they desire to see is not happening RIGHT NOW!!!

Stop bashing this proposal because this river is not up to YOUR expectations. This developer didn’t promise YOU a Rose Garden!

WTF Brickell City Center has not been around for a year and their view is now blocked. Well, it was nice while it lasted.

Um, they need patrons in BCC… as long as they see crowds of customers, they wouldn’t give a damn about views.

The problem my man is that, a lot of people who live in Miami need to take trips and see what some huge cities look like. I think that may shut them up.

In a category 5 hurricane, while it’s never happened before, catastrophic failure of some of these slimmer high rises really seems possible.

I’m talking about the max potential of winds of 200 mph or more, very possible with gusts and at that height, not 157.1

Relax, structure will remain in place. However, you can kiss goodby all glass paneling, furniture and personal belongings.

You’re right… and the person worrying about how this building would fare in 200mph winds better worry about where he lives if winds that strong hit.

I’m not a fan of this building but don’t spread misinformation. the girth of this building will no impact on whether it survives a cat 5.
