Three Edgewater Towers Submitted To FAA For Height Approval

Plans have been filed with the Federal Aviation Administration for three new towers in Edgewater.

The site where the newly filed towers are planned is the Beitel property at 3333 Biscayne Boulevard.

According to the September 22 filing, the three towers proposed include:

  • East Tower, rising 501 feet above ground, or 509 feet above sea level
  • North Tower, rising 481 feet above ground, or 491 feet above sea level
  • Office Tower, rising 228 feet above ground, or 239 feet above sea level

Beitel purchased the property earlier this year. The developer has previously said they would partner with Aimco to build over 600 apartments, ground floor retail, and office space above the retail.

Aimco is also planning multiple apartment towers on the same block.

Isnt the parking lot part of the Wendy’s property? It should be included in this building plan

I’m pretty sure that the Wendy’s will be included in the plans as a part of the complex. Besides, there should be a lot of Wendy’s all over Miami-Dade.

City planning is should play a more critical role rather than letting developers buy land and just build, developers are just looking after their profits. The city needs to implement more mixed used structures allowing less need for private transportation and implement a better public transportation such as a light rail, for every tower built a percentage of available land should be used as a public park etc.

Great to see the inland part of Edgewater developed. About time.

I wouldn’t call it inland, given that this block is literally on the water, but yes to more development.

Biscayne Blvd and surrounding Miami infrastructure can no longer handle these mega buildings. Every time is see on of these buildings going up, I also see another 1000 cars on Biscayne.

Biscayne Blvd needs way more of these mega buildings. Of course we also need the MetroMover extended up in this direction and less people to be reliant on their cars for every minor outing. But the development of this neighborhood is just getting started.

Um, Metromover isn’t even going to even leave a dent of an impact in traffic, especially when it’ll require a removing a lane for giant flyovers that will spoil the streetscape anyway, making it less feasible for human-scale street interaction. You need a commuter service along the FEC, streetcars with shared R-O-W to make any impact, and MetroRAIL through longer distances existing where railroads don’t permeate and density does not warrant streetcars.

I think Biscayne needs both more mega buildings and medium-sized buildings. As the neighborhood becomes more dense, less people will drive from point A to point B (assuming points A & B are both within the neighborhood). Just look at Brickell. Sure people drive their cars when leaving Brickell but nobody drives from their condo to Publix or for their other daily errands.

Along Biscayne Boulevard north of the A&E District should be mid-rise with a street level retail. “Mega buildings” can be concentrated in polycentric clusters in Edgewater east of the boulevard, Midtown, and the Magic City Innovation District. Great cities are planned with these characteristics.

Publix by car==1-2 weeks worth of groceries per trip, 2-4 trips per month

Publix by foot==2-3 days worth of groceries per trip, 2-3 trips per week

If you have lots of free time and not much to occupy that free time, then go ahead and walk to Publix

If you drop a frog in boiling water, it will jump out.
But if you put the frog in cold water and slowly bring it to a boil, the frog will boil itself to death.

I’m questioning him about that last sentence he wrote after the comma – “the frog will boil itself to death.”

To be a correct statement, he should’ve left out the word “itself.”

Ummm…
Your statement is that Miami infrastructure can’t handle the mega buildings.
Then you give an example of Miami infrastructure handling mega buildings (whatever those are).

Credit should be given where credit is due though. You have an excellent eye for car counting. That’s a very precise 1,000 cars on Biscayne Blvd everytime there is a new mega building.

That deal should be done with in the next couple of months. I think it’s unfortunate to have so many 3 towers crammed in and now Bay Parc towers will be a 4 all 2 blocks of each other doesn’t make a lot of sense to be that dense.

I feel like Edgewater should be split in two; Edgewater and West Edge. It doesn’t make sense to call some of these lots, which are inland, on the “Edge” of the “Water”

Anonymous
1 month ago

But this lot is on the block which does front the water. Even though these towers will not be directly on the water, residents can leave their place and be at the water in like 1 min, without having to cross any street. I think the designation Edgewater is already limited mainly to the block(s) between Biscayne Blvd and the bay.

Not necessarily picky. Edgewater is huge, and a giant chunk of it is not on the water. I feel it could be an opportunity to create a whole new neighborhood as a transition between Edgewater and Midtown/Wynnwood. It can be named anything, idc.
