Construction cranes continue to rise throughout Miamiâ€™s thriving East Edgewater neighborhood with the groundbreaking of Biscayne Beach, the areaâ€™s newest luxury condominium to get underway. The 51-story waterfront tower, located on 29thÂ Street along Biscayne Bay, is set to bring a private man-made beach to Miamiâ€™s urban core. Under development by a joint venture partnership between South Florida-based Eastview Development and New Yorkâ€™s GTIS Partners, the start of vertical construction brings Biscayne Beach one step closer to its scheduled completion date in 2016.
Biscayne Beachâ€™s development team commemorated the momentous occasion with an official groundbreaking ceremony held at the projectâ€™s site. Notable attendees included City of Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado, City of Miami Commissioner Marc Sarnoff, celebrity interior design partner Thom Filicia, as well as representatives from Cervera Real Estate, WHLC Architecture and BC Architects.Â â€œWe are excited to commence construction on Biscayne Beach,â€ said Reid Boren, partner at Eastview Development. We remain committed to delivering a building where residents will enjoy the highest quality in design and lifestyle, including activating one of Miamiâ€™s greatest natural amenities â€“ Biscayne Bay.â€
Boasting a prime, waterfront location along Biscayne Bay, Biscayne Beachâ€™s resort-style amenities will include a private, members-only Beach Club with a zero-entry pool, an elevated sandy beach with private cabanas, as well as a renowned restaurant and bar. All of these features will be set against the backdrop of sweeping Biscayne Bay views, with a public bay walk providing access to the water â€“ complete with bay-side piers for swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, and more.
Biscayne Beachâ€™s luxury residences will include one-, two- and three-bedroom condos, including six two-story upper penthouses with private rooftop pools and garden terraces. Interior design star Thom Filicia â€“ famously known for his role on the Emmy Award-winning show “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” â€“Â Â is creating the sophisticated â€˜beach chicâ€™ designs for the projectâ€™s common area amenity spaces and members-only Beach Club. Pre-construction prices range from units in the $400,000s to multi-million dollar penthouses.Â â€œOur sales success thus far is a testament to the fact that East Edgewater is Miamiâ€™s hottest new neighborhood,â€ said Alicia Cervera Lamadrid, managing partner of Cervera Real Estate, the projectâ€™s exclusive sales and marketing partner. â€œBuyers hailing from countries across the globe have selected East Edgewater as the place for their next home and Biscayne Beach as their address of choice.â€
