Four Projects Coming Soon To Wynwood

The evolution of the Wynwood Arts District in Miami continues with new condos, hotels, office, and retail buildings replacing the old graffiti-decorated warehouses that once served as artist workshops, galleries, and factories.

According to the Wynwood Business Improvement District, four projects are slated to break ground near North Miami Avenue within the next few years.

In late 2023, Rilea Group, a real estate development company based in Brickell, intends to start building The Mohawk Wynwood, a 12-story mixed-use building with 225 apartments, 22,000 square feet of ground floor retail, and 3,500 square feet of offices. The project includes a roof top pool deck, a dog park, a two-level gym, and a residents’ lounge.

The Mohawk Wynwood will be built on a 1.5-acre site at 56 N.E. 29th St. that the Rilea Group bought from Lombardi Properties for $22 million in June 2021. It is planned to be completed by late 2024 or early 2025, the Wynwood BID stated.

Another project by the Rilea Group, The Rider Wynwood will be a 12-story, 131-unit building with 6,000 square feet of retail, a rooftop deck pool, a dog park, a resident’s lounge, and a state-of-the-art gym.

According to the Wynwood BID, the project, which may be used as a short-term rental property, is expected to break ground in late 2023. It will be built on a 1.5-acre property at 94 N.E. 29th St. that the Rilea Group acquired for $12.21 million in October 2021.

L&L Holding and Oak Row Equities, a pair of real estate development firms with roots in New York, intend to build about 266,000 square feet of offices, 509 apartment units, about 26,000 square feet of retail, and a 25,000-square-foot outdoor public plaza at 95 N.W. 29th St.

L&L and Oak Row Equities (formerly known as Carpe Real Estate Partners) invested $53 million assembling the 2.85-acre site where Wynwood Plaza will be built.

The Related Group in Miami has teamed up with hotelier Sydell Group and New York-based TriStar Capital to build NoMad Residences at 280 N.W. 27th St. The project will include 329 short-term rental condos, 18,452 square feet of commercial and about 200 parking spaces.

The Related Group, TriStar Capital, and Lndmrk Development paid $26.5 million for the 1.25-acre site where NoMad will be built in September 2021. The project is expected to break ground early next year and projected to be finished in 2024.

Miami Board Rejects Design For Massive Wynwood Mixed-Use Project

It looks like it is back to the drawing board for the developers of a massive, nearly 1 million-square-foot, mixed-use project in Miami’s Wynwood.

L&L Holding Company and Carpe Real Estate Partners were dealt a setback on Wednesday, when the Miami Urban Development Review Board voted 4 to 0 to reject its proposed design for N29, an office, retail, and apartment complex.

The ruling is technically advice for Miami Planning Director Cesar Garcia-Pons, who has the ultimate say on approving the project’s design. However, UDRB member Dean Lewis told The Real Deal that the board’s recommendations are taken very seriously by planning staff.

The New York-based developers want to construct N29 on an assemblage of land at 31-95 Northwest 29th Street, 2925 Northwest First Avenue and 40-94 Northwest 30th Street in Miami.

L&L Holding Company and Carpe Real Estate are under contract to buy all of the properties, most of which are owned by the Rubell Family Collection.

The development site also abuts the 220,000-square-foot Gateway at Wynwood project.

N29 is planned to total 960,870 square feet, and range between eight and 12 stories tall. The project is proposed to include 200,000 square feet of office space, 523 residential units, 26,372 square feet of retail, 668 parking spaces, and 670 bicycle parking slots. It will also have a 22,000-square-foot, ground-floor public plaza and about 30,000 square feet of programmable space.

David Weitz, co-founder of Carpe Real Estate Partners, said the design of N29 drew “a lot of inspiration” from Oasis Wynwood, an office and retail project Carpe developed at 2335 North Miami Avenue. Weitz said that what makes Oasis unique is its large 30,000-square-foot courtyard.

While N29 already received the backing of the Wynwood Business Improvement District’s Design Review Committee in July, the project review at the UDRB was delayed in August after board members objected to the proposed building’s massing along 30th Street.

The Gensler architecture firm, which is designing the project, attempted to solve this problem by adding a 40-foot-wide paseo entrance on 30th Street and other artistic design elements.

But in the meeting on Wednesday, Ignacio Permuy, chairman of the UDRB, said the project still resembles a wall along Northwest 30th Street. “This is a huge massing that is 100 feet high and 400 feet long, and it is not being broken up,” Permuy said.

This isn’t the case along Northwest 29th Street, Permuy said. “You did a terrific job articulating and breaking up the massing and inviting the pedestrians,” he added.

Board member Robert Behar pushed for a vote to reject the current design.

“I cannot believe that there was an attempt to do what was requested,” Behar said. “That is the bottom line.”

Developers Plan Mixed-Use Project At Former Museum In Wynwood

New York developers L&L Holding Co. and Carpe Real Estate Partners formed a joint venture to build a mixed-use project in Miami’s Wynwood.

The developers have three acres at the northeast corner of Northwest 29th Street and Northwest First Avenue under contract. The property to be redeveloped would include the former Rubell Family art museum building at 95 N.W. 29th St.

Don and Mera Rubell relocated their art museum to Allapattah in 2019. The old building was listed for sale. Given how much development has been taking place in Wynwood, which is popular for its street art, dining and entertainment, it didn’t take long to find buyers.

L&L and CREP said they expect to close on the land in mid-2021, although they didn’t disclose the price. The site would allow for up to 800,000 square feet of development. Their project would combine offices, indoor and outdoor retail space, and multifamily. The size of the project hasn’t been disclosed.

“We are thrilled about this opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind 21st century mixed-use development in one of the world’s coolest and most eclectic neighborhoods,” said David Levinson, chairman and CEO of L&L. “CREP is the perfect partner given their successful track record in Miami and vision for further transforming Wynwood into a vibrant and dynamic place that celebrates the rich culture and history of the district. More importantly, our two firms share an affinity for bold, visionary projects that complement and enhance the surrounding neighborhood.”

Led by Levinson and Robert Lapidus, L&L is currently building a 670,000-square-foot office building at 425 Park Avenue in Manhattan. It’s also developing TSX Broadway, a luxury hotel in Times Square.

CREP, led by Erik Rutter and David Weitz, is known in Miami for the Oasis, an adaptive re-use project featuring restaurant, retail and offices. It landed Spotify as a tenant.

“When we entered the Wynwood submarket we were immediately attracted to its character – to the intangible buzz and energy you feel when walking the streets of the neighborhood,” Weitz said. “Our goal with this project on 29th Street and the Oasis is to preserve that character, and let it inspire our projects’ design and ethos.”
