New Owner Reboots The Edge on Brickell as a Hotel

The Edge on Brickell is back, sort of. The sliver of land at 55 SW Miami Avenue where a condo tower was proposed just a few years ago will now be the site of a hotel, developed by its new owner Brazilian Leo Macedo of the Brick Group. The developer told Miami Today “A hotel makes a lot more sense than residential on the river in this particular location,” close to transit, marine life, and the activity of lots of surrounding new developments.

Although the hotel has a new architect and a new (even taller!) design, Macedo is sticking with the name ‘The Edge on Brickell.’ The project will have 200 hotel rooms and more parking than the axed residential tower. Plans shown to the Miami River Commission on April 22nd show two ninth floor pool decks and a rooftop restaurant.

It’s hard to imagine a tower that size being built on that sliver of land. As much as I love to see exciting new proposals pushing the envelope with new designs and creativity, I hate losing public access to the river and waterways. To get this they will have to build right up to “the edge” and also cut the width of the sidewalk on the street side. Unreal.
