Proposed Edgewater Residential Tower Gets Utilities For 96 Units

The developers behind a proposed residential tower in Edgewater have signed a utilities agreement with the county.

The name of the development is listed as The Edge. According to the newly inked agreement, it will include:

  • 96 residential units
  • 5,493 square feet of full-service restaurant

Edgewater Owner, LLC is the entity involved in the agreement.

Previous reports said that the property is zoned for up to 38 stories. A tower designed by Kobi Karp and Dieguez Fridman of Argentina was said to be planned.

A demolition permit for the property was applied for last year.

It will be nice to see Edgewater become more walkable– like Brickell. I just wish/hope that they connect more of the roads so that not all traffic gets diverted to Biscayne to get from street to street.

It needs to be made into a neighborhood. Right now it’s just a bunch of luxury towers with zero consideration to how it all ties together.

Brickell, walkable when most towers are set back with giant underutilized plazas and auto courts? About as funny as comparing it Manhattan.

Brickell is very walkable along the waterfront. Not NYC but very nice.

Like every other building in edgewater and Miami for that matter. So sick and tired of the same lame, boring designs. I don’t read this web for 3 months and I come back and it is the same news.

Let’s hope this will be a condo. Not all of us are renters and with more money moving down every day, renters will continue to shrink in proportion to owners. Seems like there are loads of apartments buildings in the pipeline.

The rentals are for the real residents. Miami is largely a renters market as most workers here cannot afford to buy. A big part of that reason is due to competition with outside investors for condos. You got enough cash lockbox condos here already. Time for worker housing to catch up to demand, and much of that naturally is rental demand. Free market at work here.

I disagree that rentals are for real residents. It’s precisely the opposite as rentals are for transient residents in any city. Besides, we shouldn’t be encouraging residents to be life-long renters. We should be sponsoring programs in schools that teach kids of the benefits of homeownership. It’s not only good for their personal investments, but for the longtime growth of the city.

Schools have better things to teach, like sixty genders and that going to college for an expensive, useless degree is the only way to get a job.

“We should be sponsoring programs in schools that teach kids of the benefits of homeownership.” teaching them this and then not offering housing they can afford would make no sense, however.

Too many condos/cash lock boxes already–need more rentals to meet huge local worker demand.

I bought a condo last year as my primary residence and the pickings were slim for properties under $600k. Who says local workers can’t buy?

Nobody said no locals can’t buy, the fact remains many cannot. If you’re not earning at least 75k/yr household, there’s nothing you can really afford to buy here. People earning under that and buying here either are stretching themselves dangerously thin or got parental assistance.

Miami’s condo market has been built on international investors looking to diversify, which is a big reason why pricing stays competitive (and helps to price out lower income locals). Also this trend of work from home will slowly ease back and along with rising rates it should bring back some balance in pricing over the next few years as a lot of supply come online in chunks as well…

The tower portion is beautiful…the garage cladding and street level interaction looks terrible in this rendering…hopefully just a bad/incomplete rendering.

Don’t worry, they’ll commission a local “artist” for something you would see on an elementary school.

Absolute downgrade compared to the previous Edgewater Terraces proposal with the articulated top. And they tore down a beautiful old Streamline Modern house for this crap?

yep. i understand the need for density but it would be nice if they could keep some of those flourishes on the new buildings.

Edgewater is on fire right now! Nice looking tower. It amuses me that the developer is called “Edgewater Owner, LLC”

Anonymous

It’s just the LLC used to purchase the lot. The developer is not named that. If you look at Melo Groups purchases, they use a different LLC for every transaction. That is not uncommon for developers to do

Considering how many legitimately historic buildings have been destroyed in Edgewater, the postwar one story crap across the street really needs to be next to go.

Oh this is different apparently. There’s so many buildings plus separate sales galleries that they become confusing.

Love the name Edge, befitting for Edgewater. How come no one else thought of this.
