First Look At 30-Story Modera Biscayne Bay Planned For Edgewater’s Unity Property (Updated)

Developer Mill Creek Residential is moving forward with plans to developer a 30-story tower in Edgewater called Modera Biscayne Bay, replacing the Unity On The Bay church.

On August 27, the developer signed a deal to bring utilities to the property.

According to the agreement, the new project will include:

  • 296 apartments
  • 11,000 square feet of retail

A 24,113-square foot House of Worship previously connected to the utilities system will be demolished, the agreement states. A 100-year old mansion is included in the demolition figures.

According to engineer Bliss & Nyitray, an amenity deck and a pool deck will be located atop the 28th floor. The building will be framed with 8” post-tensioned slab and concrete shear walls around the stairs and elevators. The owner wishes to make the columns long but as thin as possible to better fit within walls, the engineer wrote.

An eight-story parking garage is also planned.

Total gross area is approximately 650,000 SF.

Corwil is the architect.
