Photos: ‘Minimalist’ 57-Story Missoni Baia As Seen From Ground Level

Construction is continuing at the 57-story Missoni Baia tower in Edgewater.

Missoni stands out in the Edgewater skyline after topping off last year at 649 feet, which is the tallest permitted in the neighborhood.

Asymptote Architecture’s design for the tower’s façade is said to have been influenced by Minimalist art.

When complete, Missoni Baia will have 249 units, according to the most recent utilities agreement with the county.

Don’t forget “cErEaL BoXes” and something about all the buildings being the same height

How it it “refined” then, from what, other rectangles that don’t have blank walls down the other side?

Yeah but it’s mostly glass exterior. So it’s a W.

It’s a fine-looking building, but the construction has really been crawling over the past six months. They seem to be hanging one pane of glass per week.

They want to get this one right. That shit that happened in Surfside scared them.

It should have been completed months ago. It doesn’t look like anything is happening there and they were working all the way through Covid. Something is seriously wrong.

This project is like the Sargrada Familia. I look forward to it’s completion. When it started mustache wax was a nickel, the horseless carriage was new, and the Wright Brothers made news at Kittyhawk.

I love it. It actually came out better than Elysee, since they went cheap and added so much stucco to the exterior.

A building that looks like every other glass box built in the last 70 years is influenced by minimalist art? Right, and a Pollo Tropical is influenced by the Alhambra Palace. Please with the word salad… Wasn’t saxophone setbacks enough to sell a glass box anyway?

Yeah.. ain’t just too bad that you don’t have the money to buy one of those 249 units in this building?

You got that right. Imagine an all glass apartment on the 30th floor.
Surely proprietors are not concerned about those here that think it’s boring.
Their views floor to ceiling matter

Yes. Generally, they do compared to ones that are not all glass. Not everything can, and needs, to be iconic. There are limitations and practicalities in construction costs with building skyscrapers. Many people who comment, like you, think their are no resource limitations in designing and building. We live in fantasyland.

We’re in the USA. So yes, we are closer to those cities than we are in Asia. In what way does any of the culture in Miami tell you this is Asia? Go to San Francisco if you are looking for Asian culture. WE invented the skyscraper after all. So if you hate the USA, please get out.

Seattle’s skyline is beautiful. I was walking around there downtown the other day wondering to myself why more of Miami’s architecture can’t be as beautiful as Seattle’s.
