Vertical construction of Two Roads Development’s Elysee condominium, a 57-story waterfront glass tower now rising along Biscayne Bay in Downtown Miami’s Edgewater neighborhood, has surpassed the halfway mark.

The building’s general contractor, John Moriarty & Associates of Florida, has reached the skyscraper’s 35th floor, with about one full level expected to be completed every week going forward until top-off later this year in November. Delivery of the 649-foot-tall building is slated for 2020.

The structure has been designed by architect Bernardo Fort-Brescia of Arquitectonica, Elysee’s striking three-tiered telescoping shape will grow larger as it ascends into the sk

“At first sight the tower feels daring and maybe even whimsical when in fact it is a monument to rationality,” said Fort-Brescia, Arquitectonica’s founding principal. “In this era of technology, Elysee’s design challenges gravity and announces the triumph of man.”

There will be 100 residences in the building once completed, priced from about $1.8 million to the $10 million range.
