Renderings Of 2000 Biscayne Condo Tower In Edgewater

Renderings of 2000 Biscayne have appeared on the website of ODP Architects.

Developer Verzasca Group recently closed on the property, which formerly housed the City Hall restaurant.

They have previously said that the project would include about 450 units, and have FAA approval to build a 649-foot tower.

2000 Biscayne Boulevard enhances not only Miami’s skyline, but also the standard for high-rise, residential design. Rapid growth challenges designers to explore smaller sites and non-traditional view corridors. As urban centers become the focal point of live work citizens, a new type of architecture must respond in a dynamic, holistic way creating an economically viable and user-friendly tower.

In contrast to the strict, orthogonally-organized Miami streets, the site for 2000 Biscayne is slightly curved. This curvature influenced the design of the tower volume. Playful extension of the floor slabs in various directions, allows residents to enjoy the beautiful South Florida weather from their balconies. Thoughtfully designed facades and well-distributed layouts allow every unit to have a great view of either the city or the ocean.

The tower design features a step-back at the ground-level connecting it visually with the neighborhood scale, as well as complimenting the nearby retail stores without disrupting the walk ability of the existing fabric.

Beautiful design.
Relieved to see a creative design for this beautiful, edgy area.
The Edgewater/Entertainment area is definitely about to make
a turn around if all those horrific looking, empty parking lots get built up

Very nice design. A great addition to the Biscayne Boulevard corridor. Nice to see some curves among the big boxy designs going up.

though i love the design – would be nice to add a something on the two rooftops like a restaurant/bar or pool to take advantage of the views.

Rooftop restaurants would be a great addition to the area, there are a few in Brickell and definitely room for more in Edgewater.

I’m glad that Paraiso Bayviews will have a rooftop pool to chill out.

So it’s not a Zaha tower? Kind of a bummer, but this tower looks like it makes up for it. Sexy and international, though it reminds me a lot of Paramount WorldCenter

Didn’t they say Zaha Hadid was working on this project?

I think that was a different project in the south end of Brickell.

No, it was this one. I even saw the preliminary render. Guess they went a different route.

Absolutely magnificent! Following Missoni Baia’s disappointing reveal and the MWC Marriott’s design change so far this year, I feel better. Too bad it’s not closer to the bay.

Braman better not tard rage about this next to his precious POS dealerships.

Also reminds me of Paramount Worldcenter & I had read that Hadid was working on this before she past, although no credit to her in this article.

This a a generic version of a thousand “metallic” buildings in Dubai, Bharain,Istanbul, Frankfurt, even La Defense in Paris, etc. Nonetheless, it is exponentially better than more cheap horrible Arquitectonica, Melo, etc. concrete block and painted stucco non-architecture. Thrilled to see it.

So you complain about the “metallic” and the “typical miami”, let’s see your what you have in mind then…

I’m not complaining about metallic, just saying it’s very common, but it’s a welcome change for Miami. I am complaining about the hundreds of cheap concrete block painted stucco towers, half the new buildings in Miami are made of these cheap materials which look dirty after 3 years and have to be painted. The Four Seasons, old Southeast Financial Center, Espirito Santo, even buildings that use concrete panels like the Arquitectonica Courthouses…anything that uses real building cladding like real cities use. You simply don’t find painted concrete block buildings in New York and other global cities.

Appliance architecture is the plague of many cities, Chicago being the worst victim. This building would be tacky as an Air Purifier from Sharper Image.

Better the appliance than the box it came in.
