Construction site

Melo Group is building the 648-unit, 53-story bayfront tower in Edgewater. The condo project is more than 70 percent sold with units under hard contract, Melo announced on Thursday.

The developer closed on $95 million in construction financing for Aria on the Bay in August, and went vertical in December. Construction is moving at a brisk pace, with crews completing about one floor a week, the developer said. Aria will be topped off in April 2017.

Cervera Real Estate is handling sales for the units, which range in price from $400,000 to nearly $13 million for the penthouse.

Buyers at the 648-unit tower are primarily from Latin America – including Venezuela, Brazil, Mexico and Argentina – with an increased buyer pool from the United States, a spokesperson told The Real Deal.

Amenities will include a 14th floor amenity deck, four swimming pools, fire pits, outdoor summer kitchens, a spa, gym, yoga studio and theater, according to the press release. It will also feature 20,000 square feet of commercial space on the ground and lower floors. Arquitectonica is the project architect.
