Site Work Permit Application Submitted For 58-Story Villa Residences

A site work permit application has been submitted for the Edgewater property where the 58-story tower Villa Residences is planned.

The filing was submitted to Miami’s Building Department on February 1.

Moss & Associates is listed as the contractor on the permit.

There are also separate permits now in review at the Building Department for vertical construction of the tower (now in its second cycle of review) and for a seawall. Moss is also the contractor on those permits.

Villa Residences is planned as a 650 foot tower, designed by ODP Architects.

The project is planned to include 72 residential units, a rooftop helipad and baywalk. A restaurant operated by Major Food Group is also planned.

One Thousand Group and Terra are the developers, in partnership with Major.

The copper tones are such a nice departure for Miami – so sick of the typical wavy white balconies

So unique and beautiful – agreed.

If this turns out like the renderings, it will be a show stopper. Love this tower!

So glad it’s no longer a 1000 museum knockoff

I liked it. Still a nice tower, but seems VE’d.

Very skilled and elegant design because of the slenderness ratio, the large glazing patterns and the copper delineation at the splayed corner edges. This is a one-of-a-kind in Miami because of the singularity of the tower and the uniformity of the 4 sides tied together with the interplay of the tectonics.

Look at that subtle off-white coloring. The tasteful thickness of it. OMG. It even has a watermark.

Beautiful tower. Our skyline is becoming one of the nicest in the world!

That’s a bit of stretch. Maybe in the US.

Well skylines outside of the US, Canada and Australia tend to be horrendous. Arab countries have the tackiest of the tacky, Asia have a few of nice signature buildings but the a sea of boxes that are in general very dirty and with lots of clutter, like ac units, metal bars and caged balconies. Awful in my opinion, but at the end this is all subjective.

This is Sunny Isles Beach grade. Too bad it’s actually shorter than their new 700+ ft heights.

Where’s the 200 car parking garage? This will require one to three spots per unit depending on unit plus the helipad and 10 or 20 or maybe even 50 service parking spots.

Anyone else thinking we need better ferry system in the Downtown area?

Yeah, Fort Lauderdale has a robust ferry system – not sure why Miami doesn’t have one at all…..

The Fort Lauderdale Water Taxi is amazing! My friends and I went up last weekend and rode it all day. It’s a hop on and hop off system and there are plenty of places to enjoy at all the stops. For those of you who haven’t tried it, do yourself a favor and make a day out of it. Super fun.

The Water Taxi is a floating tourist trap, not a means of public transit.

I believe my comment implied that it was a fun event for tourists, not a means of public transit, but go off.

WE NEED transit, not floating tourist traps! Keep up!

Certainly one of the better bayfront Edgewater proposals. Should have been the bare minimum standard before most it consists entirely of glass boxes with concrete backs onto Biscayne Boulevard.

Only 72 units? Really pricey Condo’s. I’m all 4 it.

That will not end well. If a hard breeze blows water spills right over the first floor. What is it that folks seem to can’t get their heads around when it comes to the rise of sea levels?

Al Czervik

To answer your question, what folks can’t get their heads around this is that sea levels slowly rise, sea levels slowly fall. Engineers, architects, and designers know this and plan accordingly.

The academic anti-industrial complex should pivot to another grant-writing endeavor.
It will probably be gender fluidity in gopher tortoises, but there plenty of more important topics, like how to reestablish critical thinking in the school systems.
