Wynwood’s Biggest Ever Office Building To Break Ground In January, Demolition Underway

Wynwood’s biggest ever office building, 545Wyn, is about to break ground.

City records show that a permit was issued December 3 to demolish buildings currently on the site. Groundbreaking for the new building is set for January, according to a CBRE press release cited by the SFBJ.

The 10-story development will include over 298,000 square feet of office space, along with 26,000 square feet of retail.

Amenities will include an 8,000 square foot “paseo park,” balconies on each floor, and a 442 space parking garage.

Chicago’s Sterling Bay is the developer. Gensler is the architect.

LOL! 442 space parking garage!

Don’t even try to conceal it either. What a shame, of course, Miami has even less vision among it’s leaders than Miami Beach.

There should be way less parking plus there should be bike lanes and transit in Wynwood. O well.

That is one space per 733 SF, not too bad. For an area without too many places to live yet, and not a lot of transit options for people who have jobs that require Class A office space, I would say that parking ratio is pretty good.

Build enough quality projects like this, and there would be a reason to have a bus route on NW 5th Ave. connecting to Metrorail at Santa Clara or Allapattah.

Unless mass transit is updated developers aren’t going to build an office building expecting there tenants to park on the street…

Real Cities would see how major events like Art Basel completely choke the grid. They’d build transit so there are real alternatives. Not Miami.

Warehouse are not neighborhoods

So I guess in your opinion, the neighborhood should look the same three hundred years from now.

Wynwood was a warehouse neighborhood with the occasional low-income housing in the early 90’s, filthy and dangerous. It become an artsy hipster neighborhood starting in the mid-2000’s, and it is now gentrifying into something else. Other than a major recession, nothing will stop these changes. I think it’s great to see how it changes, regardless of whether you like those changes or not.

Yea right Wynwood is lined with single family housing it was never just a warehouse district. there was more residents than workers there which is what allowed the transition in the first place. The hipsters then comingled with the black and other low income families there and now in typical Miami fashion the rich is gentrifying it from all of them.

Maybe they should have bought property to keep the rich from gentrifying it from all of them? In that case, they would’ve sold anyway.
