186-Unit Luxury Apartment Building Planned At Wynwood Salvation Army Property

Developers have announced plans for a luxury apartment building on a Wynwood site formerly owned by the Salvation Army, according to the Herald.

18 NW 23rd St. is planned to rise 12 stories and include:

  • 186 market-rate apartments
  • retail space
  • parking garage

The Salvation Army sold the property last week for $18 million. It was used as a parking lot.

The nonprofit will retain its 108-bed Wynwood rehabilitation and store. Proceeds from the parking lot sale will go to support its 18 remaining properties in Miami-Dade.

Breakers Capital and Alchemy-ABR Investment Partners of New York are the developers.

Arquitectonica is the architect, with interiors by MKDA.

This is beautiful. It’s hilarious that the Herald characterized this development as “another sign of Wynwood’s gentrification” when this is literally replacing a parking lot.

Please don’t erase Wynwood with a sea of luxury condos. That’s not what this neighborhood is about. Love the development but there should be an effort to preserve the character and makeup of the neighborhood somewhat.

I don’t think its too late; the majority of Wynwood is still ripe for development. And again, I’m not against luxury condos at all, I just think it’s important to retain elements of the authentic Wynwood

There is no authentic Wynwood. Or, rather, this is the authentic Wynwood. This was the plan *all along*, from the very beginning of Wynwood as an “arts” destination.

Neighborhoods change, Brickell was filled with micro mansions at one point.

Neighborhoods evolve but that evolution can and should be controlled in certain circumstances to an extent to preserve authenticity. Unless you want Wynwood to become a stuffy, all white, upperclass neighborhood with no trace left of its vibrant origins.

Vibrant origins? It was a sketchy warehouse district in the early 2000s at best. YOu would even walk around their at night not too long ago lol

You’re right Wynwoods origins are super dull and bland. Nothing vibrant about it.

100% before the 2000’s it’s origins were as a manufacturing fabric district for an outdated industry that doesn’t exist in America anymore.

The only truth to it being white is because Wynwood is a bunch of people from the North East and Califonia (tech and finance). That is the one thing that smack inauthentic in Wynwood, it’s not Florida people, its not even Miami people.

I agree. It would have been nice to see some of Brickell’s old mansions preserved and used as restaurants or social clubs, like the Upper East Side in NYC. The same with Edgewater, but of course you had a crane mysteriously fall on one intended for preservation.

The houses in Edgewater were garbage, I lived in one in 2008. It had a horrible lay out, small rooms, outdated everything, falling apart.

That’s false. When I moved to Miami, circa 2014, you could find very reasonable rents in almost brand-new condo buildings with amenities that New Yorkers could only dream of. And that lasted up until covid.

Wynwood was created when locals began to retrofit existing warehouses and abandoned buildings into businesses and galleries. It was a rare but 100% organic and community-led effort that eventually led to the Dorsch Gallery opening in 2000 and then later, Wynwood Walls.

Wynwood helped lead the wider adaptation of street art as a legitimate art form, and has developed into truly a one-of-a-kind neighborhood that is unique to Miami.

While I made it clear that I SUPPORT high end development in the area, I’m surprised by how many people would rather “erase” all of Wynwood in exchange for another neighborhood of nothing but high-end condos.

You’re the only one talking about it being full of nothing but high-end condos. Many of us want to see it continue to develop into an arts-focused, but fully walkable, neighborhood. Replacing a parking lot with a beautiful condo is part of that plan.

So, going to a museum and looking at an art piece makes you sophisticated? Trash cluttered streets with uncouth drivers everywhere and chickens roaming around along with roosters crowing in some people yards, and you think you’re living in a city full of culture?
