Planner: Tall, Thin Edge on Brickell Is Considered Compliant

Plans to build a 58-story hotel and condo project on a narrow riverfront lot in Brickell seem likely to gain final approval from Miami’s Planning Department.

City Planner Joseph Eisenberg told Miami’s Urban Development Review Board last month that his department considered The Edge on Brickell to be a “compliant project,” according to Miami Today. The proposal was approved by the UDRB.

A 198-room hotel is proposed on levels 16-32, with 70 condo units proposed on level 34 to 57. Parking minimums will be met with a 122 space garage, located on levels 2 through 12 and accessible only by car elevators.

Leo Macedo of the Brick Group is the developer, and Kobi Karp is the architect.

The proposal includes a rooftop restaurant on level 58, along with another restaurant at ground level.

I think i’m the only one here who likes not only it’s design but it’s location as well. And that’s fine. I can see this built and sitting on the edge of the river there, boats coming in and out… it’ll look amazing.

How is there space for a river walk that wide and the building? That render is very creative to say the least.

VERY creative. The site is VERY thin.

This land should be used for public parks along our Riverwalk and also as a FLOOD & RAINWATER RETENTION AREA! Who on here is in Brickell within a couple blocks of this site at this very moment and in feet of water? And after only a couple hours of rain? With climate change extreme rain is the new norm, not the exception. We must use urban design to anticipate and plan for these challenges.

Careful, the rain might drown you if you yawn long enough..

It’s funny the negative reactions to this project. I love it personally. Interesting to me however is the efficiency of the plans. When you consider the avant garde nature of the design, they didn’t rely on a billion sheets of eyewash. straight forward clear set of plans. well done.

These are the same people who cry about more parks! more parks! and don’t step foot in any of them in the city, or haven’t been to one of them in years.

It’s absurd that a lot this urban continue to carry parking minimums. Establish a maximum and let the free market decide.

Terrible idea, a max means your parking garages get taller than 15 stories — meaning have fun driving in circles to the top for 30+ minutes.

Isn’t there a river commission with rules and regulations?? did it pass their approval?

Opps maybe they forgot.

It looks like they are including a dock that they are counting as space for the river walk. But i doubt the river commission will approve this.

This project has nothing to do with the river. The River Commission has more important things to worry about like Brickellites getting pissed off every time that bridge is raised.

This sets a dangerous precedent allowing towers right up on the edge of the River. Can you imagine a canyon of towers snaking along the River? I can, and it ain’t pretty.
