Elysee Miami

A short Story about Elysee Miami

The construction of Elysee Miami began in 2017 in the East Edgewater neighborhood of Miami. When the building is completed in 2019, it will be the first tower in the area to offer the exclusiveness of a boutique property with ultra-luxury amenities and finishes that are characteristic of much larger buildings. The building's distinctive design will enhance the Miami skyline, while offering affluent residents the utmost privacy and service and incredible views of the bay.

The architecture

Globally recognized architect, Bernardo Fort-Brescia of Arquitectonica designed Elysee Miami to give life to the notion of combining ultra-luxurious residences that have a boutique feel. The building is made up of three tiers of different sizes with the largest tier on the top. It's telescopic shape adorns the waterfront of East Edgewater and serves as an icon of inspiration for those that appreciate contemporary architecture. 

East Edgewater Apartments

In the past decade, East Edgewater residents have witnessed the continued development of high-rise condominiums on the waterfront. As the only downtown neighborhood zoned for high-rise residential use, developers have been building frantically to offer homes with amazing views that are close to everything that Miami and Miami Beach has to offer. Elysee Miami's neighbors include luxury developments such as Onyx on the Bay, Mission Baia, and Biscayne Beach Residences. Elysee Miami's unique architecture that offers a small number of large residences makes it the perfect waterfront location to call home.

The Residences

Elysee Miami's 57 floors is home to 100 residences, with no more than two on each floor. Each residence has three to five bedrooms and some may be converted to six. They range in size from about 2,200 to 4,000 square feet giving residents unmatched panoramic views of Biscayne Bay. Each residence also has a sunrise and a sunset terrace for dining, reading, relaxing, or just taking in the incredible sky at dusk and dawn.

The Finishes

The interior of each residence was designed by Jean-Louis Deniot, world-renowned architect and interior designer. Deniot has a classic contemporary aesthetic with modern designs that offer the occasional throwback to earlier eras. Kitchens are outfitted with top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances and Italian cabinetry. Bathrooms also have Italian cabinetry with designer fixtures and faucets. Condos come designer-ready for new owners to make the space their own and come equipped with smart home technology.
