189-Unit Apartment Building That Is Replacing Wynwood Yard Is Now Rising

An apartment development on the former Wynwood Yard site is now rising.

Developer Lennar is building the project with a $45 million construction loan.

The 11-story building is called Wynwood Green and will include:

  • 189 apartments
  • 324 parking spaces
  • 16,768 square feet of commercial

Only 8 stories are permitted on the property, but the developer obtained an increase to 11 stories (and 146 feet) by contributing to the Wynwood Public Benefits Fund.

Dorsky Yue of Fort Lauderdale is the architect.

Like the other comments we for sure need more of these types of buildings in Wynwood. Crazy how much potential there is in the Miami area. 10- 15 years from now you won’t be able to recognize this area.

One of the crane operators on this site use to be on my site before we took the crane down!

so many good projects in Miami, it’s too bad our expressways are so dirty as well as some streets. we need to pressure DBI SERVICES to keep our expressways clean. every once in a while i send them an email and they do clean the highways but we need to contact them more often if we don’t do it they will never clean the expressways. i don’t want to be the only one emailing them all the time, so TNM readers please help me out on this issue and go to DBISERVICES.COM and leave them a message telling them to clean our expressways more often

Why would Lennar get into rental apartments. They only build single-family homes and condos that people can buy. So why would they build rental apartments?

Maybe because they are a “Real Estate” company?

Or they saw potential for a flip

So, crazy colors, patterns and murals define Wynwood??? Architects and developers are relying way too much on ‘decorating’ generic architecture and cheap construction.

Look, there are a lota, lota hispanics in Miami so get over it. At least this apartment building is a very good looking designed building and I would like to see much more like this in Wynwood.

I must clarify my comment has nothing to do with Hispanics. It purely related to aesthetics.

If you haven’t noticed, a lot of structures in Wynwood are aesthetically designed with Hispanic taste in mind.

Are you new to Miami?

you mean loud bright colors and patterns that don’t match and can’t be viewed by someone with epilepsy

Yes, that’s something you’re going to have to get used to.. especially in Wynwood. Personally, I like the colors, they really matches that “Wynwood Vibe.”

do any of you remember when Wynwood was cool? so lame to bulldoze what was cool to build apartments so then people can live in a hood with nothing cool – and then a hood that is total grungy with no amenities (grocery store, etc) to boot. Wynwood is like Ocean Drive now. Gross.

I think that is is gross when people want neighborhoods to stay paralyzed just because they deem it to be uncool to build facilities where people can live, work and play. Don’t you think that the people that live in Allapattah, Overtown or Wynwood benefit from increased investment that brings about lower crime rates, more employment and better schools with the increased tax base; all of which spills over into these blighted neighborhoods? It may be cool for you to come and visit a couple of times a week after work or on the weekends, but for those people that live in and around Wynwood are finally seeing more opportunities than there has ever been in past three decades.

I also find it telling that you refer to the area as a “hood” but yet you decry
any development efforts in the neighborhood. Neighborhoods evolve and it’s natural for those that don’t want change to protest, but I suspect that if you live in Miami you are most likely to appreciate the city as it is now rather than it was in the 1900s when it was barely marked on any maps.

i think you are right, there is a lot of foot traffic on Wynwood so that allows me to sell a lot of croquetas so i’m one of those benefiting from all this gentrification

Sarcasm and bigotry aside, what would you envision for Wynwood? A place where only a few “cool” places are allowed to operate? Would it be best for all derelict buildings and overgrown lots be left untouched? There are so many places in the US that would love to have a site like the TNM, but instead they have anemic growth and have to grapple with an ever declining tax base (I.e. Detroit).

If you want to curb development and preserve the character of a city so that it remains “cool”, look to San Francisco. Yes, many parts of San Francisco looks as it did in the early 1900s but good luck affording the average 3k rent for a 1 bedroom. I guess that is why San Francisco is not known for its croquetas, no street vendor can afford the rent…

Yes, how could I forget. I suppose señor vendedor de croquetas may argue they add a bohemian vibe which could definitely be cool.

“Wynwood is like Ocean Drive now. Gross.”

I don’t think Wynwood has come that far yet. And if it does get that type of Ocean Drive action, then I think it’s achieving it’s goal.
