Melo Group Tops Off 441-Unit Edgewater Apartment Towers In Just 7 Months

Melo Group’s twin-tower apartment complex known as URBAN 22 has topped off in Edgewater, just seven months after breaking ground.

URBAN 22 will have twin 15-story towers with:

  • 441 residential units
  • 15,000 square feet of commercial space
  • 529 car parking spaces in a masked garage

Units will range from 725 to 1100 square feet and every unit will feature a private balcony with glass railings. Amenities will include an outdoor pool deck with a spa, garden terraces, and a fitness center and a social room.

According to a statement from the developer, the project is being designed to activate and enhance the pedestrian experience.

The aesthetics of the project will feature the sleek modern structures commonly used in the Melo Group’s urban designs, a press release said.

Decent infill for NE 2nd Ave, and it’s nice to see the parking concealed with apts.

There are plenty of affordable in apartments in the area already. Edgewater deserves beautiful architecture that sells at the price buyers are willing to pay.

Melo has upped its game from its older, basic-as-can-be buildings. This looks like it will be an attractive building, and it will bring much-needed population and activity to the N.E. 2nd Ave. corridor.

I wonder from the moment an application is submitted to the moment that they lease how fast it is.

I saw this go up day by day. Rain or shine. Amazing coordination by the construction crews. Hopefully the rents will be market rate, which I’m sure they will.

Hope they start on their twin towers on biscayne bay and their mega project across from publix on biscayne blvd.

“Sleek modern structures?” LOL… The offset balconies on some of the elevations are cheapo-depot at its finest.

Can see this project from our building and it has really shot up over the summer – very impressive. Will be a nice injection of vitality on that road, and with sister buildings planned for the Midas property and the parcel across the street, hopefully street-level retail follows.

A bike lane on NE 2nd would be nice – it’s still the calmest north-south artery through Edgewater/Wynwood, and it gets a fair number of bicycles already. I’m no traffic scientist, but I think they could stripe a lane on one side without impacting things too much.

Also hoping developments like these lead to at least one footbridge over the Brightline corridor between 20th and 27th. More access points between Edgewater and Wynwood would be a big plus, even if they’re pedestrian-only.

From the mouth of a Mensan: Purposely make traffic on a crowded main street even worse. So people can get some street exercise in! Heck, put a bench press and a squat rack in the middle of the street too.

Haha.. we read about old people getting ran over on the sidewalks and people on bicycles getting tagged all the time in this city and this clown is talking a “pedestrian and bicycle corridor.”

I wonder, do people pay attention to what’s happening in Miami in the news?

Too much parking for already congested Edgewater.
