Photos: 32-Story Metro Edgewater Passes Halfway Mark

The Metro Edgewater apartment tower now under construction has passed level 20, new photos show.

The tower is eventually planned to top off at 32 stories.

Metro Edgewater will include:

  • 279 apartments
  • 4,230 square feet of retail
  • Approximately 300 parking spaces

Apartments will be geared towards young professionals.

The new apartment tower will also help connect the Paraiso district to Biscayne Boulevard, with architect Burgos Lanza paying particular attention to the ground floor pedestrian experience.

Great looking tower.

Those Paraiso towers are so outrageously bad—bad design, bad construction, bad engineering—that they probably will need to be brought down in a few years. Even that amenities deck is inevitably going to crumble down into the parking garage and destroy any vehicles that hadn’t already been stolen or ruined by flooding.

Good for unobstructed water views from this new Metro tower, though.

Ha. True. I hear they had to run extension cords to keep the elevators and life safety equipment running at Paraiso Bay.

“bad design?”

A lot of people came on this site and raved about the design of those Paraiso towers.

Meant bad functional design—including a receiving and loading area sized for 70-unit building, tops… not multiple times that. And the property was designed to be able to handle ONLY the rainfall that falls directly within a limited footprint. Check out the downward slope from Biscayne Blvd… you’d have thought they’d have sorted that out. Ask residents who have endured multiple instances of no elevators for several l consecutive days.

I get to see this nice infill being worked on daily out of my window. For the past two weeks it did slow down a little bit.

We need some taller towers inland to conceal the awful-looking backside of that Paraiso condo tower.

Man. I can see this one from my apartment. I thought it was gonna be a lot taller. Hopefully it’s looks different than the other paraíso towers.
