Until recently, 57-story buildings weren’t too common in Miami. The supertall skyscrapers that do exist in the city, however, tended to be crammed with units to squeeze as much value out of the space as possible. Elysee, due for completion in 2018, is something else entirely. This three-tiered skyscraper is built for exclusivity, a confluence, as the developer put it, of “design, luxury and waterfront location.”
Elysee is the next-generation Miami condominium, with 100 residences and a maximum of two units per floor. These sky mansions are priced starting at $1.65 million to start and are no smaller than three bedrooms and 2,660 square feet. “Luxury like this has typically been reserved for Bal Harbor and other enclaves on Miami Beach and north of it,” said Miami Beach Realtor Josh Stein. “But with Elysee, world-renowned architect Bernardo Fort-Brescia is bringing an exclusive lifestyle to the heart of the city along Biscayne Bay.”
Each residence has its own private, high-speed elevator, and more than half of them have quarters for a nanny or maid. Dual terraces offer sunrise and sunset views, and, while you’re standing there surveying your domain, you can control everything from window treatments to indoor temperature directly from your smartphone thanks to the Savant wireless technology system in each residence.
Best of all is the neighborhood. East Edgewater is quickly becoming Miami’s premier neighborhood as developments like Elysee fill the skyline. It has the benefit of proximity to major highways and connections to Miami Beach, and it is adjacent to the Design District, Midtown and Downtown Miami, with easy access as well to Miami and Fort Lauderdale international airports. World-class dining, shopping and entertainment are all just minutes away.
