Another: The Dorsey Breaks Ground In Wynwood At The Former Coca Cola Plant

A groundbreaking ceremony was held in Wynwood today for a mixed-use project called The Dorsey.

The Dorsey will be a 12-story building.

It will include:

  • 306 apartments
  • 35,000 square feet of retail (approximately)
  • 70,000 square feet of office (approximately)
  • 476 parking spaces

Units will be in the 500 and 700 square foot range, with some in the 400 square foot range.

The project is being developed by the Related Group, Alex Karakhanian’s LNDMRK, and Scott Sherman’s Tricera Capital.

Arquitectonica is the architect.

 

 

Former plans for Wynwood Plant for the same site by Touzet Studio, now cancelled:

Yes.. I think the other design is better also. Plus, you see balconies in the first design.

Value engineering at its finest – no balconies or real character to this design. The retail spaces are too big for the businesses that actually would want to operate on this side of Wynwood. Good luck to whoever ends up as their future leasing team

The clubs are going to be closed soon in Wynwood, the residents of this new apartment are going to complain about barter next door.

That was a big concern. The new residence coming into a party area complaining slowly weaving out the thing that made the area so popular!

Seriously, no one is concerned about how every project has hundreds of car parking spaces?

Uh.. let’s see:

* 306 apartments
* 35,858 square feet of retail
* 58,760 square feet of office

Look anyone who wants to live there, shop at the retail there, and work or go to one of the offices there, this “Anonymous” person wants to see you “foot it,” because he or she hates all of you car driving fanatics!

No. In fact, I am concerned that there is not enough parking given the density of the project.

Look, you’re trying to make sense to someone who drives everywhere he or she goes in airconditioned splendor and always have a place to park their car.

I wonder if all the garage haters in this site don’t own a car or use a shared ride service.. Miami Dade is car dependent and creating large mixed use developments without parking will have a negative impact on their success.. if you rented an apt or leased a retail space, wouldn’t you need spaces employees, patrons, vendors, etc? In theory it sounds great, but it is not practical, even more so when there is a pandemic and more people would rather drive than use public transportation or uber/lyft…

I think the bigger concern here in the neglect from the local government about the future growth of not just wynwood but the surrounding downtown neighborhoods. Miami as it currently is you 100% need a car to get around. so new project need to have adequate parking but wynwoods current infrastructure without a doubt cannot support this kind of growth. Wynwood is almost boxed in three sides by highways (adding in the north part of Overtown) and train tracks on the east. In addition most roads are two lanes and some are one. In a perfect world the northern corridor and a metro mover expansion would already be complete which would help entice growth in the area… but due to the negligent of leadership by the local government officials the locals are going to have to deal with extreme gridlock until we get the government to act.

Boy, if NYC depended on you back in the day, it would’ve stayed nothing but a little small farming town.

Small apts are the slums of 10 years from now. Why not just make barracks and charge by the night? Awful.

So apartments are the reason we see slums and not an economy and population growth?

And this is exactly why more car parking is bad. Soon drivers will be asking for city killing interchanges.

So true, people don’t realize the more cars are accommodated, the worse it is for the pedestrian and street life, which will destroy what gives Wynwood and other places their allure

There is always a balance that needs to be struck. Car-centric design is often incompatible at the pedestrian level and with the street life of the area. Since better street life = $$$ for the small businesses, we should be looking to preserve and expand it as much as possible.

What is “Car-centric design?”

Anonymous
7 months ago

Car centric design is a broad term that could be anything that prioritizes the automobile over everything else; i.e. wide roads in the city, empty parking lots, etc. It’s important to get people places but not at the cost of community. In essence, if we make the car and the speed at which it travels our main concern, we create places that are good for cars, but terrible for people.

Here’s a great piece that explains this and similar topics nicely:

So you’re saying cars should be made to go no faster than 5mph on the freeway so that way people will be to walk around on it also?
