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.
