Vertical construction is now underway at the Elysee condo tower in Edgewater, after a foundation pour over the weekend.
On Friday, general contractor John Moriarty & Associates of Florida had a crew of 75 workers for the pour, which took 20 hours to complete. 260 truckloads rotated of concrete were delivered, totaling 3,000 cubic yards and weighing more than 5,000 tons. Prior to the pour, 300 pilings reaching depths up to about 150-feet below the ground’s surface were drilled.
Just 100 ultra-luxury residences are being built, with prices ranging from $1.5 million to above $10 million.
The 57-story tower will top off at 648 feet, and boasts a unique three-tiered telescoping design by Arquitectonica’s Bernardo Fort-Brescia.
Two Roads Development and entities managed by New York-based investment firm DW Partners are the developers.
