Watch As Daredevil Dangles From Tower Crane 740 Feet Above Miami At Elysee Construction Site, Tallest In Edgewater

A daredevil filmed himself climbing to the top of a construction crane at the Elysee construction site in Edgewater last week, and uploaded footage of the stunt to social media.

Crane operator Johnny Meant also uploaded video of the stunt to his Instagram, and hinted that another Instagram user named sirevargas was the possible stuntman.

The construction crane for Edgewater’s Elysee Tower is now about 740 feet above ground, and the high rise itself is now nearly topped off as the tallest building in the area.

Elysee is expected to officially top off at 57 stories within the next few weeks. The tower is already the tallest structure in the area. The final tower height is expected to be around 644 feet above ground, or 649 feet above sea level.

Edgewater gentrification in process.. Beautiful construction replacing old buildings and homes.

Welcome to living in a capitalistic society. If what’s happening to those “old buildings and homes” bothers you, you could always take your money and buy them to prevent it. Trust me, the owners will sell to the highest bidder.

He meant the other way around, however many beautiful old homes and apartment houses which just needed some TLC were superior to the corporate welfare Related cereal boxes and parking garages as replacement.

It doesn’t sound like he meant it to be the “other way around” to me when he mentions “gentrification.” No one is intentionally replacing anyone in that area just to take advantage of cheap land. Anyway, calling something SUPERIOR to what you consider as being “corporate welfare-Related cereal boxes and parking garages” was and is not advancing Miami one iota. Miami is full of one-story homes in a lot of areas along it’s waterfronts that are just hogging up land and views that could be shared by thousands more people.

Hopefully the development company sees this and files restraining orders against all of these people and will prosecute them for trespassing.

Imagine if he fell onto a car with a family inside. He would kill everyone in the car with his selfish actions. Should be in JAIL.

This might be a marketing ploy to get attention by the developer.
