Vertical Construction Beginning At 57-Story Missoni Baia

Nearly eleven months after foundation work began, Missoni Baia is now coming out of the ground.

When completed, the project will rise 649 feet above sea level and 57 stories, which is the maximum height permitted in the Edgewater neighborhood.

Missoni Baia is being designed by Asymptote Architecture, and developed by Oko Group.

The 57-story project kicked off construction last October with a ceremony that included saxophonist on a flyboard above Biscayne Bay.

What’s the building supposed to do to you when you look at it?.. get up and dance?

“The mother art is architecture. Without an architecture of our own we have no soul of our own civilization.”

So this building, as reflected by its soulless architecture and nihilistic saxophone jetpack party to disregard the former, sucks.

Like the song said that Lynn Anderson sung – “I beg your pardon, (these developers) never promised you a rose garden….”

Actually, wasn’t the initial design spiral in shape, according to somebody on here close to the project?

Significant project for Edgewater… everyday the old houses are sold and demolished.

…for sprawling parking garages and cereal box towers.

At least I can look at the skyline and see this building. With those old houses, all I thought when I looked at them is “you’re not welcomed in this neighborhood.”

Nothing says “you’re not welcomed in this neighborhood” like vertical gated communities and blocks of parking garages. All the old historic houses could have been restored and property values would naturally rise and crime would drop.

What’s the west elevation look like? Hopefully, it’s not the ugly fire/utility corridor all the Edgewater buildings have used?

A blank wall running down the middle.

It should be mandated in the construction permits for all future projects in Miami.
