Skyscrapers Rise in Miami’s Funky Edgewater Neighborhood

Nine skyscraper projects are currently in the works on the waterfront property in Edgewater, Miami’s up-and-coming neighborhood just north of Downtown.

Developers have been collecting parcels of land in the waterfront neighborhood of Edgewater to build more Miami skyscrapers. Even though the real-estate crash stalled progress, construction is booming for the Melo Group, who has seven condominium and apartment projects lined up in the area. 

Why is the land so hot? It’s one of the only bayfront areas left to develop in the city. Edgewater unofficially includes the waterfront property stretching from Northeast 17 Street north to the Julia Tuttle Causeway at 36th Street and from Biscayne Bay west to the railroad tracks.

“Edgewater has become one of the hippest, most chic places to live, driven by its proximity to the Design District and Midtown. It’s a place people want to be,” said HFF representative Jaret Turkell, to the Miami Herald

The neighborhood is within close proximity to the ballet and Broadway performances at the Adrienne Arsht Center, Miami Heat basketball games at American Airlines Arena, gourmet restaurants in Midtown Miami, cutting-edge art exhibits in the Wynwood Arts District, and international boutiques like Fendi Casa and Christian Louboutin in the Design District.
