Icon Bay is a residential high-rise in the Edgewater neighborhood of Miami, Florida, containing about 300 units over 42 floors. In return for using the end of a city of Miami owned street where it meets Biscayne Bay, the project design approved included a small public park as appeasement. In 2016, the building was awarded sixth place in the Emporis best new skyscraper annual awards.

The developer designed the building so that each unit can be cross-ventilated. Each unit has 2-3 frontages in order to achieve this. The balconies are designed with a zig-zag pattern which: the design element invites more light into the apartments.

The building has 300 one, two and three bedroom apartment/units.
