A developer plans to build a midrise mixed-use residential building with ground floor retail on land near where Edgewater meets Wynwood in the City of Miami.
Owner-developer Wynwood 21 Apartments LP proposes property at 100 NE 21st St. for the 11-story building. The project, named Wynwood 21, is to be home to 97 dwellings, about 3,550 square feet of restaurant and 2,538 square feet of retail. It was referred to as Omni 21 in earlier paperwork, and in one rendering.
The city’s Urban Development Review Board unanimously recommended approval.
The property has a principal frontage on Northeast 21st Street to the north and a secondary frontage on Northeast First Avenue to the west. An existing structure is to be demolished. The property, two-thirds of an acre, has a commercial parking garage to the south and single-family residential building to the east.
The developer is requesting waivers allowing for:
- A 30% parking reduction within a transit corridor.
- Substitution of one commercial loading berth for two residential loading berths.
- A 10% reduction in required side setback above level eight from 30 feet to 27 feet.
- A 10% reduction in required drive aisle width minimum from 23 feet to 22 feet.
- A 10% increase in required lot coverage maximum from 80% to 88%.
- Parking to encroach into the second layer, along the principal and secondary frontage, with an art or glass treatment approved by the planning director upon recommendation by the review board.
The board was told the parking garage façade along that frontage will be fully screened with an art treatment. The building will have a full pool deck. Amenities also include a dog walk area, barbecue area, fitness center and more.
