Edgewater’s Biggest Supermarket Yet is Coming!
Mar 19, 2020 March 19, 2020
Edgewater residents, get ready to welcome a 58,826 sq. ft. supermarket in the northern edge of your neighborhood!
Hardly four blocks down from the Shops at Midtown Miami, the proposed grocery store will be larger than the 49,000 sq. ft. Publix is currently located at 18th and Biscayne. This comes as great news, since luxury pre-construction condos such as Missoni Baia, Elysee and Island Bay are expected to add more than 1,100 residences to this Miami neighborhood in the next three years.
This largest-yet supermarket for Miami’s urban core, will front Biscayne Boulevard and be part of a redevelopment of the 2900 and 3000 block of Biscayne Boulevard, very close to the proposed Berkowitz Contemporary Foundation Art Museum. According to the plat documents filed with the county by developer Crescent Heights, the grocery store will be accompanied by 443 residential units in Tract B of the project.
The multi-building project’s Tract A will come fronting NE 2nd Avenue and include 71,540 sq. ft. of office space, 11,100 sq. ft. of retail, 32,450 sq. ft. of commercial space used for a fitness club, plus 400 residential units.

With Arquitectonica as the architect, Crescent Heights has also filed with the FAA to build a 428-foot tower called Nema on the said property. Residents of the nearby condos 26 Edgewater, Biscayne Beach, Icon Bay, and other buildings will find it even more convenient to go shopping within the neighborhood, since Publix, Target, and Whole Foods close by are generally crowded.
