First Glass Installed At Missoni Baia As 649-Foot Tower Passes Halfway Mark

Edgewater’s 57-story Missoni Baia tower passed the halfway point earlier this month and had its first glass installed.

Contractor Civic Construction is now pouring one floor per week, and reached level 28 about a month ago.

Architect Hani Rashid of Asymptote Architecture is designing the modern, minimalist glass tower. Interior design is by New York designer Paris Forino, under the direction of Angela and Rosita Missoni.

Missoni will include 249 residences, ranging in price from $600,000 to over $9 million. It is the first branded residential project in the world for Italian designer Missoni.

OKO Group and Cain International are the developers.

Top off is expected in March 2021. Completion is expected in late 2021.

This is a very elegant tower.
Edgewater’s skyline will definitely benefit from this exquisite building.

It would be great if towers didn’t keep getting approved that vacate the public streets, and block the views of the towers that are going to be built west of the water. This tower is within its property boundaries, but many others are not.

It would be great if you explained what “towers didn’t keep getting approved that vacate the public streets” mean.

towers that vacate public streets…..block views of towers that don’t yet exist and may not ever…..towers that aren’t within their property boundaries….either English isn’t your primary language or you need to put away the model glue

That’s the dumbest sh^t I’ve ever read. Leave the meth alone and stop whining about something you know nothing about.

“Towers that vacate public streets.” Have you ever walked or driven around Edgewater in the past ten years, or even did a simple Google Maps StreetView? Apart from along the bay, it’s all parking garages serving the towers. That’s clearly what he meant.

I am going to be honest, what you wrote does not make much sense but it looks like it’s supposed to make sense! Now how does that even work?

Once they completely run out of waterfront space then they will have no choice but to build west. Just give it time!

Problem with that area is more Towers, more cars and still nothing with the metro mover going up to midtown? the current Trolley is a joke.

A Metromover expansion is a joke. We need the Metrorail lines promised forty years ago and Coastal Link.

I understand what you’re saying POLO but it’s a shame that Miami’s skyline cuts off at around 38th st.

Miami doesn’t need a skyline that’s just a wall of buildings fronting the bay. Much more infill development needs to be done to build out the entire downtown and greater downtown area

Luxury buyers want to live on the water, not down the street from it. The market has spoken.

Thanks for the comment. That anonymous person who said “Miami doesn’t need a skyline that’s just a wall of buildings fronting the bay” doesn’t understand the concept of two or three different types of buyers.

Not every building in a skyline has to be for “luxury buyers”. There is plenty of demand for midrange product and rentals, and plenty of room for these projects to fill in to the west, this broadening the skyline and density beyond just a never-ending bay wall of towers.

It seems that you are upset because there’s a market for such towers along the waterfront. At least there are more people who can experience and enjoy the waterfront while living in these towers other than the single family houses that we’ve looking at hogging up the waterfronts for decades and decades in Miami.

IMO, this is what Jacobs describes as a neighborhood spreading its edges i.e., Downtown spreading outward and that’s a good thing. Premium transit is needed for that area.

What? This tower is the antithesis of Jacobs’ ideals. Where are the “eyes on the street” when the majority of the street is faced by long parking garages?

Exactly. And setbacks, natural sunlight, etc.

Parking garages means that the area is evolving.

Edgewater is slowly edging out Brickell in desirability.

Soo… sorry to say, but…that area has a nasty smell, maybe it was just coincidental when I was there at the gala opening for the sales office…I couldn’t stay outside, anybody else noticed?
Or maybe it’s a tidal thing and only happens once in a while, but it was enough for me to stay away…
