The Opera Tower is a residential skyscraper in Miami, Florida, United States. It was developed by Florida East Coast Realty, and was completed in late 2007. The Opera Tower received its temporary certificate of occupancy on December 26, 2007. The 60-story tower is located at 1750 North Bayshore Drive in Media and Entertainment District , just north of Downtown Miami, and contains 635 luxury condominiums. Resales for condominiums units were handled by Vistas International Realty. As of May 2009 , the tower has faced significant vacancies and has incorporated a "apart-hotel" format. Unlike competing "Quantum on the Bay", "Opera" was never a sell out and has faced trouble selling all of its developer units.
