Arlo Wynwood Hotel Planned With 217 Rooms, Construction Permit Now Pending

Wynwood is getting a new 9-story Arlo hotel.

City records show that a construction permit was filed for over the summer and is being actively worked.

Arlo Wynwood is being designed by NBWW Architects, the company said in a press release.

The development will be a cross between a boutique/pod hotel and an urban event venue.

NBWW said its first massing design strategy was to create a landscape courtyard, carved from the inner portion of the building site. The courtyard will provide air and light to guestrooms that would otherwise face an adjacent building. The courtyard also serves to migrate landscape to the interior, creating an urban oasis.

The second massing strategy for the architect was to carve off two large areas from facades that are most visible to the public.

One space at the 3rd level of the front facade will serve as an outdoor gallery for large art displays. It will also provide a public stage visible from the street for events and yoga practice.

The second space connects the 3rd level landscaped courtyard to the sidewalk through a monumental stair, “mysteriously and strategically tucked in at the entrance of an alley,” providing opportunities for 3-dimensional art expressions. The role of this connection is to extend the network of activated public spaces through the Wynwood alleyways. The alleyway also becomes the entrance of an 8,000 square foot “hidden” music venue.

The dialogue between raw construction materials such as exposed concrete and structural metal to artistically refined wood and glass is softened by a lush tropical landscape throughout the building envelope and the interiors, the architect says.

When complete, the project will include 217 guestrooms, along with a restaurant and bars.

Wynwood is getting some meaning now. It’s no longer just about art. All the construction projects in the works will bring more tourists to the area and will give the area a sense of meaning and purpose. Get this thing completed by 2021 if not 2022.

Meaning and purpose = Developers making $$$ ? Because that’s what I see, maximum profit generation. Nothing new, or risky. Parking, condos and/or office. Simple generic formula.

Yep. Was in Wynwood this weekend couldn’t believe how many people were walking around. Much busier than Brickell.

Even doing the weekday its now crowded. Just wish the metromover was expanded up north miami ave to connect it with the urban core.

Hate to say but Brickell is dead…

and when they’re all done the colorful warehouses will be replaced with high end boutiques, restaurants, condo’s, apt’s and hotels and the people with funky spectacles, plaid clothing and fancy shoes will wonder… WTF are we doing here ?

Nah, they can go Opa Locka and the cycle can repeat over again in twenty years.

How many hundreds of parking spots? Wynwood going down the tubes soon to be a car choked hole.

Totally agree. Why, Why, Why build so many spots?

Because there is zero mass transit system connecting Wynwood with any other area in the city.

Projects like this elevate the quality of architectural design in town. It’s refreshing. Love the process!

Wynwood is becoming Miami’s Chelsea, I wonder where will be it’s Williamsburg (or Bushwich, these days)

Anonymous

Little River and Allapatta, although I’d say the Design District is more Chelsea and Wynwood is more Williamsburg

Not Kobi?? SHOCKING the city must be slipping

Michael

That’s nice design in general, but where are the parking and service entrances located?

Mike

It looks like there is an alleyway in that area for service. It seems that there is a parking entrance in the front if I am not mistaken

Another great building, with great design. Keep bringing these types of projects to Miami.

I agree that downtown needs more hotel rooms but the same rule applies to Wynwood
