Arquitectonica’s Elysee Luxury Condominium Takes Shape in Downtown Miami’s Edgewater Neighborhood; Construction Surpasses Halfway Point

Posted Jun 04, 2019

Construction of the 57-story waterfront tower is on track for completion in 2020.

MIAMI, FL – June 3, 2019 ­­­­– Arquitectonica’s newest luxury high-rise to grace the Miami skyline is reaching new heights. Vertical construction of Two Roads Development’s Elysee condominium, a 57-story waterfront glass tower now rising along Biscayne Bay in Downtown Miami’s Edgewater neighborhood, has surpassed the halfway mark. The building’s general contractor, John Moriarty & Associates of Florida, has reached the skyscraper’s 35th floor, with about one full level expected to be completed every week going forward until top-off later this year in November. Delivery of the 649-foot-tall building is slated for 2020.

Designed by legendary architect Bernardo Fort-Brescia of Arquitectonica, Elysee’s striking three-tiered telescoping shape will grow larger as it ascends into the sky, creating a bold, multi-tiered silhouette providing direct 180-degree water and city views from every residence. The tower’s sophisticated common areas are the creation of Parisian designer Jean-Louis Deniot, one of the world’s preeminent talents in interior design, who has taken cues from Fort-Brescia’s designs to create “classical contemporary” interiors that are serene, elegant and dramatic.

“At first sight the tower feels daring and maybe even whimsical when in fact it is a monument to rationality,” said Bernardo Fort-Brescia, founding principal of Arquitectonica. “In this era of technology, Elysee’s design challenges gravity and announces the triumph of man.”

Situated along the bayfront just north of Downtown Miami, nestled between the Venetian and Julia Tuttle Causeways – two main arteries connecting the City of Miami and Miami Beach – Edgewater has fast-emerged as the epicenter of the new Miami. The surrounding neighborhoods of Downtown’s Arts & Entertainment District, Miami Design District, Wynwood Arts District, Midtown Miami, and Miami Beach put residents within blocks of luxury retail shops, high-end restaurants and world-class arts and culture venues.

“Once complete, Elysee will be a retreat in the center of one of the most desirable parts of Miami,” said developer Reid Boren, managing partner of Two Roads Development. “Elysee’s boutique exclusivity, idyllic bayfront location, commanding views and world-class amenities will brand it as a standout property for a long time to come.”

Priced from about $1.8 million to upwards of $10 million, Elysee’s 100 half-floor and full-floor residences range from three- to six-bedroom layouts measuring between 2,200 and 5,550 square feet in size.

All residences at the boutique-style tower will boast private elevators and foyers, ceilings that are 10-feet and higher, impact-resistant glass windows and sliding doors, bespoke Waterworks® master bathroom fittings and fixtures, and gourmet kitchens with ItalKraft® cabinetry, Wolf® gas ranges and professional grade Sub-Zero® appliances. Every unit will also sport expansive east- and west-facing terraces where residents can enjoy unparalleled sunrise and sunset views.

Residents share access to three full floors of amenities. Elysee’s Grand Lobby Level includes an elegant marble lobby and living room area, a bayfront lounge and a waterfront “sunrise” pool. The building’s 7th-floor amenity level is stocked with a resort-size lap pool with adjacent refreshment bar, an outdoor summer kitchen and barbecue terrace, a fitness center and yoga studio, a spa with private sauna, steam and massage rooms, a blow-dry bar and a children’s playroom. For large-scale entertaining, Elysee’s Owners’ Sky Lounge – which encompasses the building’s entire 30th floor level – is home to a Grand Salon lounge and bar area, a Grand Dining Room which includes seating for up to 24 guests, a professional-grade chef’s kitchen and an indoor/outdoor chef’s table, and a library/private theater and game room.
