Missoni Baia Files To Increase Unit Count

The developer of Missoni Baia are requesting approval for design changes, including an increase in the number of units.

Changes include:

  • Increase in unit count from 146 to 249 units
  • Increase in parking garage height from six to seven stories, and increase in parking spaces from 323 to 399
  • New artwork for the 56-story core column on the west facade, and for the parking garage
  • New balconies for the north and south facade, among other facade changes

The tower height is not changing, and remains at 56 stories and 649 feet. Unit count increase is achieved by reducing sizes, in response to market demand for smaller condos.

The changes are scheduled for a hearing by the Urban Development Review Board on February 21.

The numbers weren’t working on the existing sales (performance). So, they are decreasing the sqft, increasing unit counts.. decreasing the sale price (and thus)… selling more units.

Hmmm… that’ll work.

It is clear that this project is unfeasible, two design changes, changes in the sales team, etc. More than two years in the market without any good news.

Shame as it’s just a beautiful building with a stunningly elegant design.

Lol, the garage is kinda odd. The pool deck is impressive. They did a great job with the Baywalk!!! Also, they kept the exact same unit layout from top to bottom aside from the lower level dual story units, I am surprised they didn’t do any fancy penthouses.

You mean to tell me that the saxophonist on the flyboard didn’t do the trick to drum up sales?

So how is this project supposed to be almost sold out if they are still submitting changes like the number of units…??

Now they’ll wait another six more months to get started on construction because every proposal and change to it has to be peered over with a microscope in Miami.

Exactly. Imagine how pissed you’d be if you bought pre-construction thinking this was supposed to be an exclusive building with only 149 units. Now you are informed you have over 100 more units in the building. Think of how many more people will now be sharing amenities – gym space, pool space, etc.

If they do an enticing enough price reduction, it wouldn’t bother me.

Will it mean better architecture? Especially now I have lower hopes for it, seeing the hideous backside. OMG Becky!

I like how this one looks. However, I’ve never seen the backside, which should give us concerns…

Concerns about what?.. most of it will be blocked by another tower anyway in the future.

In another tower, a wall down the middle of this tower ain’t much of a view. Even Related’s development with hallways on the back side looks better and utilized.

It’s such a beautiful project.
Please get it off the ground. Edgewater badly needs the density and sophistication….This will make it.

Can someone please clean up I95 in Miami Dade County.
World class City/Third World Road.

Instead of asking “can someone please clean up I95” why don’t you get busy on it? Instead, all you wanna do is bitch, moan, groan, and complain about it.

Be the example and get started.

could you get out of your contract and get deposit back since now the elevators will be full of a lot more people w/ more units? seems like units would be worse less the more people they cram into the building.

20 instead of 10 full time residents? I doubt you’ll see anyone in the elevators.

more units and less parking spaces per unit. Where are the residents, their guest, the employees of the building going to park? I guess Uber, Lyft will be the only option. Edgewater can not take more cars on the streets.

I’m so confused. One post complains that Miami doesn’t need any more parking and the Next says there is not enough.

Well, the people who are saying “Miami doesn’t need any more parking” park in a garage attached to their house or right in front of their homes.
