Terra And Major Food Group Join All-Star Development Team For Villa Miami In Edgewater - Miami Luxury Homes
BY Michael Light / On March 31, 2023

It’s a new development party! An impressive team of creative minds have come together with plans to construct a new 55-story tower in Miami’s Edgewater district. The condo is slated to be called Villa Miami, and will replace a Zaha Hadid design that was planned a few years back.

The all-star development team includes Louis Birdman, who was also one of the developers of 1000 Museum. As of this week, Terra Group and Major Food Group have also joined in the partnership, offering a new spin and a new design (pictured above).

Located at 710 Northeast 29th Street, the initial development team secured FAA approval to build a 649-foot tower that was to be called 710 Edge (pictured below). Designed by Zaha Hadid, the tower’s design gave it the appearance of being a “little sister” to 1000 Museum just blocks away. Details of Villa Miami are still coming together, but we do know that the building will be 55-stories tall and include 72 fully-finished residences.

Inside the building, residents and visitors will be able to experience the influence of Major Food Group, which is led by Mario Carbone, Jeff Zalaznick, and Rich Torrisi. They will naturally operate and brand the restaurants, lounges, bars and amenities including a waterfront restaurant on the ground floor. Upstairs, thoughtfully curated interiors will be done by Vicky Charles of Charles & Co from NYC.

Prices have been released, with 2,939 +/- square foot half-floor residences starting at $4.550M and 6,083 +/- square-foot full-floor residences starting at $8.5 million.

Villa Miami is the first residential tower that Major Food Group is to be a part of. The restaurant group had previous plans to take part in Michael Stern’s project at 888 in Brickell, before the arrangement fell apart. They have been present in the South Florida culinary scene with Carbone in South Beach that was opened over 2 years ago, adding Contessa in the fall. Contessa is their 10th restaurant in South Florida.

Terra Group is a household name in the Miami residential development arena. They are currently building Mr. C Residences in Coconut Grove and are also undertaking a joint venture of Five Park in South Beach.
