With a waterfront location directly on Biscayne Bay, a multitiered silhouette by renowned architecture firm Arquitectonica, and glamorous interiors by French designer Jean-Louis Deniot, Elysee is a bold newcomer to one of Miami’s fastest-developing neighborhoods. Its height alone makes this luxury condominium development stand out—it’s the tallest residential tower in Edgewater—and then there’s the fact that it gets wider, rather than narrower, as it rises. The interiors are no less striking, with an eclectic mix of patterns and textures that creates an atmosphere of elegant extravagance in the lobby-level reception area and the 30th-floor Sky Lounge, where each carefully curated room has a slightly different mood. The residences themselves offer a calming counterpoint and, with no more than two residences per floor, an unprecedented level of privacy.
Designed by legendary Miami architecture firm Arquitectonica, Elysee is a dramatic addition to Edgewater’s waterfront—and not just because, at 649 feet, it is the neighborhood giant. As the 57-story tower rises from the Biscayne Bay, it grows progressively wider, with three distinct tiers that give it a unique telescoping silhouette. The goal was to have all the units face the water, to create something “daring but strong,” said Arquitectonica’s Bernardo Fort-Brescia.
