Elysee Edgewater is a boutique, waterfront building that has quickly gained favor among both domestic and international buyers. So much so, that it has garnered over $30 million in new sales since its top-off last year. Director of Luxury Sales Stephanie Bienstock recently sold four units in the building and tells us why Elysee is one of Miami's best!

Why is Elysee so popular with your luxury clients?

Bienstock, who specializes in Miami Beach and Edgewater luxury condos, notes that what's drawing her clientele to Elysee over other Miami luxury condo buildings is its "true boutique design and feel." With only two units per floor, buyers are loving the exclusivity, space, and remarkable half-floor plans that let unit owners enjoy sunrise and sunset views of the Biscayne Bay and city.

So, what else are buyers falling in love with at Elysee?

Perched on one of the most coveted waterfront parcels in East Edgewater, Elysee's iconic exclamation point-like silhouette makes it easily an icon of the Miami skyline. Topping off at 649 feet, it is the tallest building in Edgewater. Designed by Arquitectonica's Bernardo Fort-Brescia, its telescopic (wider at the top), three-tiered glass façade is not just meant to make a statement, but to actually let most residents enjoy 180-degree bay and city views. 

Truly boutique, there's only two residences per floor – a total of just 100 in a tower rising 57 stories. Bienstock explains, "By far, what I love most is the design of half-floor residences, so all units are corners with direct East and West views or North and South views, depending on which corner. This makes Elysee incredibly unique for Miami condos in general." With residences ranging between 2,200 and 3,900 sq. ft. in size, the luxury building offers a rare combination of unobstructed views, space, and privacy.

Luxury interiors by the internationally acclaimed Jean-Louis Deniot

This Parisian interior design genius is known to elegantly walk the line between minimalism and excess. Deniot's emblematic interiors have been acclaimed by the likes of ELLE Decor and Architectural Digest. Using a blend of styles and textures from different time periods, his signature style is both bold and timeless.

For Elysee, Deniot's first-ever condo project in the city, the designer embraced Miami's glamorous mid-century past, taking inspiration from architecture books by Morris Lapidus, the tower's multi-tiered silhouette, and more local elements. Residents will find a sense of refinement in the geometric diamond shapes and retro-style furnishings chosen to create a classic-contemporary space marked by comfort and openness throughout the building.

Three full floors of amenities including Elysee Attaché

Complementing its exclusive, boutique feel, Elysee boasts of three full floors of luxurious amenities. The elegant marble lobby features a living room area, bayfront lounge, and waterfront sunrise pool.

The seventh-floor amenity deck features a resort-size sunset pool; fitness center and yoga studio; a spa with private sauna, steam and massage rooms; blow-dry bar; and children's playroom.

The 30th floor Sky Level deck features the building's Grand Salon lounge and bar area, Grand Dining Room with seating for up to 24 guests, catering facility and chef's table, library, private screening room, plus media room.

Additionally, residents get exclusive access to the Elysee Attaché concierge for VIP ticket bookings, coveted restaurant recommendations and reservations, moving coordination, interior design services, housekeeping services, gift suggestions and personal shopping, travel Attaché services available 24/7/365, in-residence wellness and fitness coordination, booking of spa and salon appointments, and much more.

A central, Edgewater location

Talking about location, Bienstock quickly elaborates that Elysee enjoys a "central location close to the best of shopping, entertainment and dining found in Miami. It is only a mile from Wynwood (the epicenter of art and innovative thought), a mile-and-a-half from the fashion-forward Design District, and another mile-and-a-half from the Arts and Entertainment District," she notes. "And Miami Beach is just four miles across a causeway."

Why is Edgewater such a desirable Miami neighborhood? 

When asked about why more and more buyers are drawn to the neighborhood, Bienstock notes, "The handful of luxury pre-construction projects in the works will be delivered along the continuation of the Bay Walk, which will offer residents more beautiful walkability in the neighborhood and a seamless connection to the Arts and Entertainment district." Plus, there are several beautification projects in the works or planned for improving streets and sidewalks, including new plans for Margaret Pace Park, continuing to make Edgewater offer an incredible quality of life.

Besides, Edgewater also ranks as #3 on the "Best Neighborhoods to Raise a Family in Miami" 2020 survey by and #4 on the "Best Places to Live in South Florida" rankings. You can read more about Edgewater's journey from a less-than-ideal neighborhood to Miami's next crown jewel, plus other upcoming condo projects in Edgewater.

With remaining units priced from about $1.9 million to around $10 million, there are only a handful of units left in the luxuriously boutique Elysee building. Call or email us here for a residence in Elysee or more information on other Edgewater condos you'd like to view.
