Foundation Poured At 57-Story Elysee In Edgewater

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.

Delivery is expected in 2020.

i do not think this “another nice addition” to Edgewater, to me, it will be the only nice building there so far, the whole Paraiso District is just awful.

Biscayne Beach? Paramount? Aria? Some pretty nice buildings, to me… Most people even like Blue and Quantum, and Icon Bay kind of grew on me. Anyway, how many Pritzker’s have you won?

Actually 23 street has a very low spot that floods all the time, and quite deep, enough to destroy cars.

Yeah, and Miami is prone to hurricanes that destroy buildings and homes, trees, cars, boats, and whole host of other things, but that doesn’t stop construction.

Also, little to no storm sewers which would fix it.

No they are below sea level during high tides, and heavy rain, they flow in reverse. See videos of that street. 23 Street Edgewater.

Yeah, and?? There’s no drainage sewers to direct water back into the bay and canals, and the city didn’t require developers to help subsidize costs to build them, while the street looks as crap as ever with broken curbs and ugly cobrahead and concrete streetlights. Oh, but there’s fire cisterns!

Absolutely correct. During Irma 23rd St was still flooded for a week afterwards. Cars were completely submerged. They have done nothing to alleviate it on that street.

Venice and Rotterdam has been underwater for centuries, even before “global warming” and people live there ?

Most American cities along the east coast were underwater because they were swamps. The infrastructure which drained them is crapping out, which is first and foremost why we’re seeing so much flooding, not a sea level rise of a centimeter.
