I have lived in both places.They are both beautiful properties.
However, most overlooked is the management company John B. Lovett that runs the day to day operation.The most professionally run property is the Bay Club, hands down.There you are treaded with respect and understand that you pay alot of money to live there and are most accomodating.Towers at Waters Edge is run by Metro Management. Because this property is a coop, They have a board of directors who are self serving and nasty. Metro Management fees are the lowest and are horrible. Coop properties are allowed to run there operation without recourse. The law does not protect you. As a share holder,you have no rights.Nobody hear is looking after your interests. The rules and regulations are not posted and the board does not adhere to policy that was written in the bylaws.It is run like the wild west. In stead of finding workable solutions,they love turmoil and do not care about your quality of life. Please save not only your hard earned money save for your sanity. The Bay Club, not even close.
I would suggest we look at both . After seeing them and learning the differences your decision might be easier.
I live in Bayside and serve the Bayside area, the main difference in both buildings is that Bay Club is a condo and that Water's Edge is a co-op. There are 2 types of ownership. It would be best to discuss the pros and cons in detail with a Bayside agent. I would be more than happy to assist you in your search if you are still looking!

I would reccommend the Towers @ Waters Edge Drive. The Americana building allows you to have a dog in the event you might one day like to get one. Many many people there have opted for a small dog, which makes a good companion. You also have the fabulous 24 hour doormen, the tennis courts, the swimming pool, and many units have breathtaking bridge & water views. Regardless of what price you want to spend for a unit, every place in Bayside has quite different maintenances.
