Denver-based real estate developer Aimco has released another rendering of a 60-story tower being planned for 640 Northeast 34th Street in Edgewater, Miami. The developer released the rendering on their website in conjunction with their 2021 fourth quarter earnings announcement. In November 2021, YIMBY had reported Aimco completed the purchase of a development assemblage in Edgewater beside their Hamilton On The Bay apartment tower that would permit for up to 1.1 million square feet of new construction. The 70,000-square foot site would ultimately give rise to two towers, based on the previously released renderings, with the Biscayne Bay-facing structure depicted in the new rendering rising as high as 646-feet, or 649-feet above sea level according to an FAA filing.
