Photos: The 649-Foot Telescopic Elysee Tower In Edgewater Is Nearing Completion

Elysee, a 57-story tower in Edgewater that gradually widens as it gets towards the top, is now nearly complete. Sales have been brisk lately, the developer says.

A Temporary Certificate of Occupancy is expected imminently, with closings and move-ins soon thereafter.

The tower rises 649 feet, making it the tallest building in the Edgewater neighborhood. It features a telescopic design by Arquitectonica that makes it stand out in the skyline, unusual in that it is wider at the top than the base.

According to the developer, more than $30 million in new signed contracts have been recorded since the building topped off at the end of 2019.

In the summer of 2019, Elysee notched a record sale for the neighborhood. The 11,600 square foot, three-story unfinished penthouse unit in the building sold for $12.8 million, making it the most expensive single residence ever sold in Edgewater.

All condos span either a half floor or an entire floor, with remaining units priced from $1.9 million to around $10 million.

They should’ve added glass on the side. It looks cheap with the stucco while other buildings added the glass.

I hope they are also fixing the streets/roads in this area, thousands of people live in these new luxury apartments and the only through street is Biscayne Blvd. Also, lots of issues with homeless/derelicts and the area needs more services that cater to this upscale residents.

Then the upscale residents should band together and work to fix those issues.

great project but why do so few buildings in miami have decorative lighting? imagine if there were LED lights outlining the shape of this building at night. it would be incredible

There’s a few risks considering that LED is one of the most brightest lighting systems in the world. You would have residents who would never able to the sleep if they’re facing the tower with LED lighting.

Glad to see others admiring the beauty of this building, I have a direct line of sight of it.

Went the other day to look from outside. The entry foyer is underwhelming and I am being charitable. The entry lobby looks like one small room. I hope I am wrong and there is a grand entry somewhere I missed.

Too high. Not in harmony with the rest of the area. Moreover, the entire area need a serious urban planning for facilitating walkable pathways and automotive transit.

Those are the shearwalls. Due to the slenderness of the building the walls had to be moved to the outside to resist bending.

That’s the spot with tidal bay water odor, awful…
Spend some time there before you buy… caveat emptor

If you expect buildings to go your way, then go apply as an architectural designer and make buildings that are suitable for your taste. You sound like the only book you read was a manual.
