Property Owner Working On Plans For A 649-Foot Tower In Edgewater

Another new bayfront tower could be coming to Edgewater.

Plans were submitted to the FAA last week for a 649-foot high rise that would replace a 32-unit apartment building at 700 NE 23 Street. The existing building sits directly on Biscayne Bay.

The property, which includes 27,930 square feet of land, is owned by Palms On The Bay, LLC, which changed it’s name from Chateau Porter, LLC. The entity is controlled by trust managed by Starr Porter, who is a minister and corporate officer of the International Church of Ageless Wisdom, and who lists a San Francisco address. It was previously controlled by North Bay Road-resident Edward Porter.
