Hundreds More Residents Coming To Edgewater As 28-Story Modera Biscayne Bay Nears Completion (Photos)

A 28-story tower called Modera Biscayne Bay is nearing completion in Edgewater. It will add hundreds of new residents to the area.

The project is valued at $120 million and is being built by developer Mill Creek Residential.

Modera Biscayne Bay will include:

  • 296 apartments for rent
  • 11,000 square feet of retail space
  • 8-story structured parking garage with 425 spaces

The Unity on the Bay church was demolished to make way for the new tower.

Aaron DeMayo, who photographed the building, noted that the project has formalized a road connection between 21st Street and 22nd Street, making the area easier to navigate. The developer earlier placed signs at the site promising a new and improved road extension.

Corwil Architects is designing the project.

It’s time for the local politicians to start thinking about extending the MetroMover.

Metromover isn’t good long term MetroRail

People trip me out talking about the MetroRail when the last thing that was done with this system was a very costly small extension. Look, MetroMover is there for a reason.. they need to start on plans to extend it now!

Metromover is there to serve Greater Downtown Miami, meaning the CBD and Brickell area. It’s not intended to cover long distance unless completely upgrading, which would be costlier than a Metrorail extension. You bring up the last Metrorail extension, but what about Metromover? A sad little spur to a mall that died shortly after.

“Metromover is there to serve Greater Downtown Miami”

Where you there when a concept for MetroMover system was first conceived?

“It’s not intended to cover long distance unless completely upgrading”

Now you talk as if you’re some kind of MetroMover system engineer.

“what about Metromover? A sad little spur to a mall that died shortly after”

A lot of MetroMover stops were put in places where there wasn’t anything to go to. Before the new Planetarium and Museum, that MetroMover stop near there was useless. North of it, the next stop was useless. The stop near the school board area was useless. Face it, the MetroMover system had a lot of stops near vacant, boring, and useless areas. We’ve seen more taxpayer money thrown at the MetroRail. It’s about time for an extension to the MetroMover. The senseless befuddlement the local government seem to exhibit about what kind of automated transit system to run to Miami Beach is only putting the people of Miami in total bewilderment about these people. A billion dollars of taxpayers money was spent on a tunnel for trucks which the citizens of Miami get very little use out of for their money. A billion dollar tunnel! It’s time for the powers that be in Miami to quit scratching their heads when it comes to what to do with a MetroMover system that’s already exist and has been there for years and do a simple thing.. start extending it.

Remember, the first letters in the name spell METRO.. not Downtown or Brickell.

Metrorail – is meant to connect Dade county
Metromover – meant to connect Miami (more specifically greater downtown)

All the lines painted on the building… really? It makes it look cheap. Maybe instead of a blank wall, use a nice two-tone color scheme?

I don’t see anything wrong with those lines.. I think they’re classy.
