Revealed: Plans Submitted For 710 Edge, Set To Rise 55 Stories In Edgewater

In Edgewater, plans have just been submitted for a new 55-story tower that looks reminiscent of Zaha Hadid’s One Thousand Museum.

The design may not be a coincidence. Records show that the company proposing the new project includes some of the developers who built One Thousand Museum.

The developing entity is 710 Edge, LLC, which lists Kevin Venger, Louis Birdman, Michael Konig, and Alex Posth as owning at least 5%, according to a filing.

The new tower is being called 710 Edge. It will replace the Harbor 29 condo currently on the property.

710 Edge will include:

  • 70 residential units
  • 193 parking spaces
  • 16,489 square feet of commercial/restaurant/retail
  • A rooftop helipad
  • A public shoreline promenade (baywalk) with landscaping and lighting

FAA rules limit the height of the tower to 649 feet above sea level. The roof of the tower will be at 640 feet above sea level, with the helipad at the top of the building at 650 feet and 6 inches. An application has already been submitted to the FAA for the site.

The main tower will not have a garage. Parking will be instead be provided in a separate 9-story garage across the street, which also have some of the development’s retail space.

ODP, which also served as the architect of record at One Thousand Museum, is listed as the architect in the new filing.

The Urban Development Review Board is scheduled to review the proposal at a meeting on October 20.

Kind of tacky of this group to use the likeness of something that wont be designed by Zaha to sell more product, but who am I to say anything

I don’t think so the towers are similar but different. It’s ok to have something as a reference. Even better it’s a beautiful tower not your standard box

It’s more than similar. From the perforated garage skin, the chamfered balconies in the corners, and of course the curvilinear exoskeleton, there are a lot of similarities. It is a bit odd for the AOR from 1000 Museum to then “reference” the project so closely.

No. Copies are a bad idea.
It is just like when the original Mies “Seagrams Tower” on Park Avenue was copied on 6TH AVE and then the ODPs (aka wanabees) went to build all those mindless corporate copies in Midtown where “there is No There There ” (Gertrude Stein)…..
Its funny tho
The ground floor rendering is rather nice and could have just continued to the penthouse.
Ironic they went out of their way to copy Zaha.

No harm in a little inspiration. Something we can surely use in our skyline.

Lawsuit incoming. Even if it’s not successful, the amount of similarities and the overlap of companies used in the construction would likely induce some form of settlement payment. Low risk cash grab.

lawsuit would be undercopyright, for the original plans, and the ultimate structure being an “expression of an idea affixed to a tangible means of creation.”

But copyright doesn’t extend to functional elements. So you would have to separate the functional from ornamental or design elements. You’ll also have to separate the generic or common elements for all construction, and only stick to “original expressions” of the ideas. Then you compare the prior work and the second one, and when the similarity of elements and the whole is higher, less protectable elements will gain weight for consideration.

to be honest Im not going to bother trying to “call it” for how such a suit or dispute would go, its going to come down to the nitty-gritty. But I hope giving people a general roadblock of how these kinds of things are considered will allow everyone else to kinda walk themselves through the process and consider how they would end up ruling on it.

Sorry, but this looks nothing like the Zaha Hadid designed building. That’s like saying all cars are the same because they happen to have tires, a metal frame, windows, seats and a steering wheel.

Look around the Miami Skyline, almost all buildings are rectangular with squared off roofs, they didn’t all copy each other. It just happens to be an agronomically viable shape for construction.

Ford and Porsche have the same components, but you don’t see Ford ripping off Porsche designing in their aesthetic, trademark style. ZHA built their trademark aesthetic from a time where the world believed their thoughts would forever be confined to paper. This project reads as sheepish imititation of true mastery that was earned by pushing the boundaries of what was possible. If only such a great site was utilized with the same eagerness for pursuit of originality.

And they should build a platform to get off the Metromover and on the Metrorail to travel underwater in the bay to Miami Beach and back and then connect 200ft in the air at SkyRise in downtown Miami.

the whole thing should also have a bubble cockpit, so you can look out at where you’re going. and a second bubble cockpit, up and to the back, to keep the kids so they dont bother you. and it should have tailfins, to make it go faster, and to give it style. It should look roughly like this

Only 70 residences? So over half the tower will be only one residence per floor? Doesn’t seem right, even at a super luxury price point. What will the rest of the tower be?

Only the bottom 12 floors will be poor man’s double units. Up to about the height that would normally be the parking garage under the tower.
