Eastern Engineering Group recently finished working on the structural plans of this beautiful high-rise building. This exciting new project wants to contribute to the regeneration and growth of the Edgewater neighborhood. Also, Metro at Edgewater provides a transition in the built environment from Biscayne Bay to the neighborhood’s interior and a renewed focus on street-level pedestrian activation. This will be critical to the evolution of Edgewater as a mixed-use walkable neighborhood.
The parking garage will have a metal louver screen covered in geometric artwork by Miami-born artist Johnny Robles, with a design that is reminiscent of a sunset. Furthermore, the structural plans show the facade lined with residential units on the northside. The Development Team includes Carlos Ortiz, Lead Architect Pablo Burgos of Burgos Lanza Architects & Planners; as well as landscape architect James Socash and Fortis Design + Build led by PrincipalDavid Polinsky, PhD.
We were humbled for the opportunity to work with these amazing professionals, and therefore, honored to perform the structural engineering alongside this amazing design team. For that reason, we hope the public enjoys this structure as much as we enjoyed calculating it.
- 32-story mixed-use building (residential and commercial)
- 373 feet above the ground
