In Edgewater, A 726-Foot Crane Will Be Installed At Elysee Site Next Month

Edgewater’s Elysee condo tower will soon be going vertical.

In a filing with the Federal Aviation Administration last week, the developer said that they intend to install a crane at the site on February 12. It is expected to remain in place for 18 months.

The top height of the crane is expected to be 726 feet above ground, or 731 feet above sea level.

Elysee itself is approved to rise 57 stories, or 644 feet above ground – the tallest height permitted in the area.

Foundation work began in October. Just under half of 100 luxury units have been sold.

Edgewater skyline will be so nice to look at in about 10 years if it keeps growing.

Just half sold means lucky to be 30 percent sold. All these desperate PR releases for slow projects because developers are pressuring agencies to create something out of nothing. That is what half of these resi-articles are about. Why is it news that a construction site has a crane!? What are they supposed to have on a construction site?

Still would have looked better if the change in size was inverted, so the tower articulates and each setback would be terraces, either as private common areas or instead of balconies for larger wraparound units commanding higher prices.

True, but also higher floors sell for a higher amount. So its in the developers best interest to make more room on the higher floors instead of limiting it.

Facing the bay certainly, but it also depends on the unit square footage according to floor.
