Designed by Arquitectonica, Elysee condominium in downtown Miami has topped off at 57 stories. With its telescoping shape, the 198-m (649-ft) tower will become the tallest residential building in the city’s Edgewater neighborhood when completed next year.
“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.”
Elysee’s 100 half-floor and full-floor residences range from three- to six-bedroom layouts measuring between 204 and 557 m2 (2200 and 6000 sf) in size.
All residences at the boutique-style tower will include private elevators and foyers, ceilings that are 3 m (10 ft) and higher, impact-resistant glass windows and sliding doors, bespoke master bathroom fittings and fixtures, and gourmet kitchens. Every unit will also sport expansive east- and west-facing terraces with sunrise and sunset views.
Designed by architect Bernardo Fort-Brescia of Arquitectonica, Elysee’s three-tiered façade will provide direct 180-degree bay and city views. The tower’s design concepts are the creation of Paris-based designer Jean-Louis Deniot. John Moriarty & Associates of Florida is the building’s general contractor (GC).
