Edgewater’s Elysee Prepares For Groundbreaking
Site work has begun at Elysee, the new super-luxury boutique development in Edgewater. Groundbreaking is scheduled for the second quarter of this year, so just a couple of months away.
In order to prepare, the 124-foot-long seawall must be replaced and initial test pilings must be installed. Construction of the seawall should take approximately eight weeks, according to John Moriarty & Associates of Florida, who is the general contractor that was selected to construct the 52 story tower. Upon completion of the seawall, the construction team will then conduct pile load tests over the next four weeks, allowing them to move on to the production of piles, pouring the concrete foundation, and commencement of the vertical building structure.
With only 100 half-floor and full-floor residences, the 57-story boutique-style tower will include three- to five-bedroom units measuring between 2,300 and 4,000 square feet in size. Unit prices range from $1.3 million to $10 million, and up to $14 million for penthouses.
Elysee marks the second East Edgewater tower for developer Two Roads Development. The firm is slated to deliver its Biscayne Beach project, a 52-story luxury condominium located nearby at 2900 NE 7th Avenue, later this month.
Designed by architect Bernardo Fort-Brescia of Arquitectonica, Elysee’s distinct three-tiered telescoping shape will provide direct, unobstructed 180-degree bay and city views from every residence. The tower’s elegant design concepts are the creation of Paris-based designer Jean-Louis Deniot, one of the world’s preeminent talents in interior design, who has signed on to imagine the building’s common area amenity spaces.
Residences will include floor-to-ceiling glass windows and sliding doors, private elevators and foyers, 10- to 12-foot ceiling heights, designer finishes and fixtures, premium appliances, top-of-the-line Italian cabinetry, as well as two expansive east/west-facing terraces with wide open sunrise and sunset views.
Building amenities will include two resort style pools, a health club featuring a fitness center, yoga studio and spa with sauna, steam and shower facilities and private massage rooms, a children’s playroom and a blow-dry bar. Residents will also have access to an exclusive Owners Sky Lounge which will encompass the tower’s entire 30th floor and feature a Great Room, Grand Salon entertainment area with a full bar and piano lounge, Grand Dining Room with seating for up to 30 guests, wine room, chef’s kitchen, library, private theater and gaming room.
We are excited to see this project take shape!
