A new luxury residential tower is coming to the Miami skyline: Elysee Residences. Construction for this 57-story condominium at 700 NE 23rd Street in the East Edgewater neighborhood is currently underway and should be completed by 2018, according to a recent press release for the project.
The tower, directly on the water along Biscayne Bay, will house 100 units, some half-floor and others full-floor residences, each boasting direct views of the water. In order to take full advantage of these waterfront views, the building grows larger as it ascends into the sky, creating a bold, multi-tiered silhouette. “In this era of technology, this design challenges gravity and announces the triumph of man,” said Bernardo Fort-Brescia, founding principal of Arquitectonica, in a design brief.
Other features of the Elysee Residences include a Bayfront facing sunrise pool on the lobby level, a 75-foot resort pool, fitness center, outdoor summer kitchen/barbecue area, yoga studio, spa, a Grand Dining Room, and a library that converts to private theater on the 30th floor level. The building’s pricing ranges from $1.85 million to over $10 million, translating to an average $750 per square foot.
When complete, the tower will be the tallest in the Edgewater district.
