Elysee breaks ground

Elysee has broken ground. The 57-story, 100-unit residential tower will become Edgewater’s tallest building.

Elysee’s striking three-tiered telescoping shape will provide direct 180-degree bay and city views from every residence.

“This building is a monument to functional rationality, that at first sight feels daring and whimsical,” explains Bernardo Fort-Brescia, principal of Arquitectonica. “The 57-story reverse ziggurat form follows the building’s function – with smaller apartments below and larger ones above all with maximized views to the bay and sky — resulting in an unexpected and distinctive addition to the skyline.”

All residences at the boutique-style tower will boast private elevators and foyers, soaring 10- to 12-foot ceilings, impact-resistant glass windows and sliding doors, bespoke Waterworks bathroom fittings and fixtures, and gourmet kitchens with ItalKraft cabinetry, Wolf gas ranges and professional grade Sub-Zero appliances. Every unit will also sport expansive east- and west-facing terraces where residents can enjoy unparalleled sunrise and sunset views.

All residents share access to Elysee’s 7th-floor amenity level, stocked with a resort-size lap pool with adjacent refreshment bar; outdoor summer kitchen and barbecue terrace; fitness center and yoga studio; spa with private sauna, steam and massage rooms; blow-dry bar; and children’s playroom.
