Sep 11, 2019 September 11, 2019

This August, the long-awaited Ritz-Carlton Residences in Miami Beach finally came closer to welcoming residents by getting a hold of their TCO (this is a temporary certificate of occupancy, which means they can start closings). The second tower at the Estates at Acqualina had its foundation poured. And, the Melo Group requested approval for its largest ever, twin-tower project in Edgewater. Read on for details on these condo pre-construction updates and much more below:

Foundation Pour

The Estates at Acqualina Sunny Isles Beach

August witnessed the
foundation pour for the second tower at the Estates at Acqualina. Construction is now in full swing for the north tower at this $ 1.8 billion luxury condo project. The south tower already had its foundation laid late last year. Together, the 50-story towers feature a total of 247 units, of which the south tower houses 154 and the north tower will hold 93. The list of ultra-luxury amenities offered at this Trump Group development include an ice-skating rink, golf simulator, Wall Street traders’ clubroom, four-lane bowling alley, Formula One racing simulator, surfing simulator, soccer field, meditation areas and much more.

Prices range between $ 4.2 million and $14 million, for a choice of three- to five-bedroom residences, while penthouses go upwards of $35 million


Island Bay - Edgewater

Island Bay - Edgewater

The Melo Group has
requested approval from the Miami-Dade Shoreline Review Committee to build a 60-story, twin-tower project in Edgewater. In exchange for the approval, the developer has promised to dedicate 44,000 square feet of land back to the city. Developers have further commented that they will include 480 feet of waterfront property with public access along the Bay and create a ‘play street’ fit for pedestrians and cyclists.

If this twin-tower project wins approval, it will be the largest condo development to date for the Melo Group. Buyers can look forward to a total of 782 residential units coming up, along with 9,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and commercial space. The building is also likely to feature a zig-zag design on its balconies and have a lighting scheme for the night.
