Photo: 649-Foot Missoni Baia At The Maximum Height Permitted By FAA

Construction continues at Edgewater’s Missoni Baia, a new photo by contractor Civic Construction shows.

The photo was taken in August, Civic said.

Last month, the developer said the project had officially topped off, although shell work appears to still be ongoing at the top of the structure.

Missoni Baia is being built to the maximum height permitted in the area – 649 feet above sea level. The tower itself rises 57 stories or 646 feet above ground.

Civic is acting as General Contractor in a joint partnership with Turkish contractor Ant Yapi.

Asymptote is the architect.

OKO Group and Cain International are the developers.

Edgewater is going to need some sort of premium transit.

…which Metromover can’t provide, and every Metromoversexual poster on here will complain if Genting’s monorail gets built and then extended up Biscayne Boulevard to the Design District.

Big dog / runners/ walkers promenade on the bay side…..
Big parks along the way for children to play

Melo should stay out of luxury, they’re clueless. The Aria they build is cheap as they come.

649ft is still too low for that location. It should be up to 875ft,
Nonetheless it’s a stunning tower

You can blame former commissioner Johnny Winton for that.

No, you’re wrong. That tower is on the direct take off and landing path to MIA’s runways 26L/8R, and 26R/8L just less than 8 miles to the west of Edgewater.

The architect of record is Revuelta Architecture International

Yes, because Revuelta is a Florida architectural firm and Asymptote is based in nyc. Asymptote is the design architect while Revuelta does the construction drawings and coordination and carry the liability. The developer mostly hires well known architectural designers as part of the marketing of high end products because Miami is a design conscientious market.

Height restrictions are the trade off for being door to door 12 minutes from the airport.

You’d be 12 minutes from the airport if they built it in homestead and built mag lev to downtown then extended it up the coast of Florida instead ass backwards Miami is ruining every single building thanks to the FEDERAL government and we let brightline destroy any real high speed rail chance we had thanks to Rick Scott aka Dick Scott

What the F is mag lev? A dating app to find Russian prostitutes?

The rest of you post made even less sense.

A dating app for Russian brides would certainly get brides from the airport in homestead to sunny isles quicker with maglev than from MIA on any highway

how dimwitted can you be?….Maglev is Magnetic Levitation were trains are lifted with magnet technologies allowing for frictionless travel and high speed capabilities. China now have trains that can travel close to 300 mph, which is faster than what small airplanes can travel.The point that was made is that maglev streamlines ground mobility significantly to which Florida polititians like Rick Scott will not invest federal or state funds to develop or deploy leaving private industries to step in and utilize antiquated technologies that benefit their shareholders and not the public at large.

When has the public option been on the cutting edge? Have you ever been on Amtrak? How about Tri-Rail?

Rick Scott, rightly saw that accepting Federal Funds would entrap Floridian Taxpayers to pay hundreds of millions of dollars that would surely ballon to billions in short order. Look at California and it’s horribly failed high speed rail project. They accepted federal funds and despite all that cash, Californians are ensnared in billions of dollars in liabilities and an inept system that fails to connect any major metropolitan area. Although, I hear the farmers in Bakersfield are quite happy.

In China, they have nice shiny trains that travel very fast between the major cities. Cool. Who cares about the hundreds of millions of people that do not live in the first and second tier cities of which are constantly subjugated to fund these pet projects of the CCP and looked over for the wealthier citizens of Shanghai, Shenzhen and Beijing. You may want to emulate the Chinese, but I do not want to follow the steps of an authoritarian ethnostate.

Florida will in short order have a public transit option that connects several of Florida’s major metropolitan areas WITHOUT taxpayers footing the bill for the endeavor. If Brightline determined that it was cost effective to implement the technologies you referenced, they would have. Government, usually foregoes such calculations and opts for the politically expedient option. Look at how our Metrorail map is configured as a prime example (they used Federal Funds as well). It’s is easy to spend other people’s money. Much more difficult when it’s coming out of your pocket.

I agree with most of what you said. You lost me when you went the political route of not following “the steps of an authoritarian ethnostate”. China is the largest communist country on earth, but Democracy toting, champions of human rights peddling Americans do more business with the Chinese than practically any other country. We dont do business with Cuba, but we do with China, Vietnam, a bunch of African Warlords and Latin American dictators. What hypocrisy! The discussion is about fast trains. Who gives a rat’s ass if they are commies. That’s their business. What did we gain from trying to westernized Afghanistan?

It matters whether they are communist or not, in that they can utilize state resources to construct whatever it is they want without regard or opposition from their citizens. Private property? Not relevant in China. Environmental impact concerns? Irrelevant. Labor laws? Not applicable.

If you like the Chinese model you have to accept the entire package. If you are part of the wealthy costal caste then you have it made. If you are one of the unfortunate disposable pheasants then it’s a different picture.

If you have ever traveled into China’s interior, you’d realize that the shiny fast trains that connect Beijing to Shenzhen are of little use for the people that are hit with the brunt of the cost of constructing these vanity projects for the CCP.
