Newest Edgewater Condos Have Lots Of Lights On At Night

Those new condo buildings in Edgewater seem have filled up pretty fast, at least judging by the number of lights on at night.

Newly completed buildings include Bay House (opened 18 months ago), Icon Bay (opened 16 months ago), and Biscayne Beach (opened 6 months ago).

All seem to have more lights on at night compared to the better established and highly valuable South of Fifth neighborhood (which has a high percentage of absentee owners).

At the 391 unit Biscayne Beach, there are 81 units listed for sale on the MLS, ranging from $480,000 to $4.7 million.

At the 300 unit Icon Bay, there are 53 units listed for sale on the MLS, ranging from $446,000 to $2.2 million.

At the 181 unit Bay House, there are 35 units listed for sale on the MLS, ranging from $590,000 to $2.5 million.

The market will soon face a much bigger test, with deliveries at Melo’s 648-unit Aria on the Bay and Related’s Paraiso Bay complex (with nearly 1,500 units) beginning soon.

Edgewater is becoming a nice neighborhood… new development along Biscayne Blvd will bring more retail, coffee shops, restaurants. Great views of the bay and Miami Beach.

Traffic is awful on Biscayne from mid-twenties up to 36th. Please build some sort of rail transit along Biscayne!

Has the density now, but still needs more options for retail and restaurants. Excited to see what options go in all the new almost-complete buildings with retail space (2500, 26 Edgewater, 29 Midtown, etc.). No more furniture stores, please!

Looking forward to see Aria Opening. The 2 water/park facing restaurants should be gold. I hope to see a Starbucks/Joe & the Juice in one of them.

As someone who has lived and owned condos with incredible views, I’d just like to point out often people keep their lights off at night to enjoy the nighttime city views. Once you turn on all your lights, you can’t see out the windows so well at all the pretty lights. When you have total water views like these have then you’re more inclined to turn on your lights at night because it’s more of a daytime water view. Anyways, the point is that just because bright lights aren’t on, it doesn’t mean someone isn’t in there, especially if a condo has incredible night views.

Residents usually prefer being able to see what they’re doing. Unlike some people commenting, not everybody looks at city lights all night.

Edgewater is gonna be the next biggest thing since south of 5th. Three years ago when exploring I had an Eureka moment and realized there is nothing more amazing with views, proximity to the airport, cruise terminal, downtown, brickell, design district and south beach than Edgewater. Literally 10 minutes, then there is Mid-town which has all the shopping you need. Still the naysayers are gonna keep saying nay, until they realized they really have been priced out. New construction for less than $500 a sq foot? Are you kidding me? The area is gonna boom and prices are gonna hit conservatively $750+. New construction that is built to withstand CAT5 hurricanes gonna be the new commodity in South Florida. Condos are in!

Everyone wants a water view? Hmmm… if only there was some sort of economic mechanism by which city view units could still be supplied and meet this lower demand.

Many of the new high rise buildings have floor-through units with both bay and city views.

What I want is for the Quantum on the Bay units with direct unobstructed bay view and island view units to break the $400 price / sq ft barrier!Three units broke the barrier back in July 2015 now they are back to $350 and $375 per sq. ft.

Quantum continues to drop in price. The Master BOD has a mindset of being stuck in time – not wanting to renovate and when brought up they want to duplicate the same thing as when the bldg was built.

What would it take to change things? I understand the difference between the Paramount and the Quantum, different style. A lot more units, you still have the location and the views though…the same.
