Edgewater: Then and NowPosted 11.29.2023
As construction at Missoni Baia in Miami’s Edgewater neighborhood reaches the halfway point, let’s take a moment to reflect on Edgewater’s storied past, booming present, and enticing future. The neighborhood has existed along the shore of Biscayne Bay for nearly as long as the city of Miami itself, but it came into its own with the construction of Biscayne Boulevard in the 1920s. This four-lane road produced a central shopping district around which the postwar boom in high-rise luxury towers was centered, creating an affluent area with a number of striking architectural landmarks, including the Omni International Mall, which introduced the area to high-end designers like Hermès and Givenchy, a trend that would be taken to the next level with the development of Missoni Baia decades later.
Missoni Baia and its class of new developments are continuing this architecturally significant tradition without sacrificing the laid-back and comfortable Miami attitude. This collection of Edgewater condos is being designed by Asymptote Architecture with guidance from the Missoni family, bringing the Italian fashion house’s signature style to life on a grand scale, complete with the waterfront views and warm breezes that make Miami famous. Private balconies and a sweeping pool deck encourage residents to make the most of the pleasant climate, while proximity to world-class shopping and restaurants anchors Missoni Baia in the heart of Edgewater.
As viewers can see in this video, Missoni Baia will be joined in Edgewater by a host of new developments, including a high-end organic grocer, a new private K-12 school, and a proposed Brightline train station that will connect the neighborhood with the rest of the city via rail. Edgewater has been on the rise for more than a hundred years, and Missoni Baia is putting the right foot forward for the next hundred years of architecture and style along the sandy beaches and warm waters of Biscayne Bay.
