Two Roads Development’s highly anticipated Elysee condominium in Downtown Miami is one step closer to completion.
The Arquitectonica-designed tower, located on the waterfront at 788 NE 23 St. along Biscayne Bay, recently reached an important milestone when it topped off construction at 57 stories. With its striking telescoping shape, the 649-foot-tall tower will become the tallest residential building in Miami’s Edgewater neighborhood upon its completion in 2020.
John Moriarty & Associates of Florida is the building’s general contractor.
Earlier this summer, the developers announced the previous sale of the tower’s raw/unfinished 11,600-square-foot, three-story penthouse, which sold for a record $12.8 million — marking it the highest price paid for a private residence in the city’s Edgewater enclave.
“We are very excited to be one step closer to welcoming residents to their new home at Elysee,” said developer Reid Boren, managing partner of Two Roads Development. “Once complete, Elysee will be a retreat in the center of one of the most desirable parts of Miami.
As we move full steam ahead towards completion next year, we still have a limited selection of premium units available for buyers seeking primary or secondary residences in one of Miami’s fastest-growing luxury neighborhoods.”
Situated along the bayfront just north of Downtown Miami, nestled between the Venetian and Julia Tuttle Causeways — two main arteries connecting Miami and Miami Beach — Edgewater has quickly 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 Elysee residents within blocks of luxury retail shops, high-end restaurants and world-class arts and culture venues.
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 6,000 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.
Designed by architect Bernardo Fort-Brescia of Arquitectonica, Elysee’s unique three-tiered façade will provide direct 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.
Residents will share access to three full floors of amenities. Elysee’s Grand Lobby Level will include an elegant marble lobby and living room area, a bayfront lounge and a waterfront “sunrise” pool. The building’s seventh-floor amenity level will be stocked with a resort-size “sunset” lap pool, 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 Level — which will encompasses the building’s entire 30th floor — will be home to a Grand Salon lounge and bar area, a Grand Dining Room which includes seating for up to 24 guests, a catering facility and chef’s table, and a library/private screening room, and media/game room.
