Edgewater, the large neighborhood lining Biscayne Bay immediately north of Miami’s urban core, is still booming. Seven residential condominium towers are either under construction or in closings, with multiple rental apartment buildings under construction as well, and a plethora of other buildings have opened within the last ten or so years.
Well kablooie. Aria on the Bay, a condominium project which I once called the Melo Group's least hideous tower yet, is very close to being topped off at its full 52 story height, as we can see in new construction photos by Miami's premiere street architecture photographer Phillip Pessar. I'm happy to say my initial impression of the Arquitectonica-designed tower is proving to be very true.
