Aria on the Bay will be located in the emerging Arts & Entertainment district of Miami at 1770 North Bayshore Drive.
Developed by Melo Group and designed by Arquitectonica, Aria on the Bay will be a 53 story tower with 647 residential units. 40,000 square feet will be offered for retail, commercial and office space. The building will offer views of Biscayne Bay, Miami Beach and Margaret Pace Park is right in front.
Currently the tenants of the previous buildings have been evacuated, but demolition has not yet started on the old apartment buildings. Homeless have been living in the evacuated apartments.
