L&L, Oak Row Land New Tenants, Start Construction On 1M SF Wynwood Plaza

Developers broke ground on The Wynwood Plaza on Thursday, a 1M SF mixed-used project that is the largest yet in Miami’s Arts District.

The Wynwood Plaza at 95 Northwest 29th St. is being developed by L&L Holding Co. and Oak Row Equities, which acquired the site — where the former Rubell Museum once stood — in December 2021 for $53M. California developer Shorenstein Properties and Claure Group, the family office of former SoftBank and Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure, joined the project as partners.

The development team held a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday evening commemorating the start of construction after securing a $215M loan from Bank OZK, according to a press release.

“Recognizing the need to create something of lasting value to Miami, we assembled an all-star team capable of cultivating an environment that is every bit as unique, artistic and sophisticated as the colorful neighborhood that surrounds it,” L&L co-founders David Levinson and Robert Lapidus said in a joint statement.

When it opens, which is expected to be in 2025, the Gensler-designed Wynwood Plaza will feature a 509-unit apartment building, 32K SF of retail, 6,600 SF of outdoor dining and a half-acre public plaza designed by renowned landscape architecture firm James Corner Field Operations, which designed Brickell’s Underline and Manhattan’s High Line.

New Brickell District Mixed-Use Development To Span Full City Block

Walker & Dunlop has arranged $43 million in construction and acquisition financing for 1 Southside Park, a mixed-use development spanning a full city block in Miami’s Brickell district.

The borrower is JDS Development Group, a development firm based in New York City. Aaron Appel, Keith Kurland, Jonathan Schwartz, Michael Diaz, Michael Ianno, Sean Bastian and Ian Hawk arranged the fixed-rate, interest-only loan through Atalaya Capital.

Designed by SHoP Architects, 1 Southside Park will feature a 64-story apartment tower comprising 1,175 units, as well as 190,000 square feet of office space, a 200-room hotel, 10,000 square feet of retail space and 1,400 parking spaces. The project will be located near the Miami-Dade Metrorail Brickell Station as well as The Underline, a newly delivered linear park stretching from Brickell to Dadeland.

Landscape architect James Corner Field Operations is working with JDS to integrate 1 Southside Park with The Underline, which was formerly a Metrorail line. The new development will feature 90,000 square feet of wellness-centric amenities such as a fitness center and spa to complement The Underline. JDS plans to break ground in the near future, according to founder and CEO Michael Stern.
