Block Capital Proposes Mixed-Use Wynwood 28, Designed By Arquitectonica

Block Capital Group has submitted plans to build a mixed-use project called Wynwood 28.

Wynwood 28 is proposed to include two separate buildings, at 5 stories and 8 stories.

A paseo will run in between the two buildings, allowing pedestrian access from 27th Street to 28th Street. It will be aligned with a pedestrian paseo at Wynwood 27 across the street.

“The Project provides a contemporary design that draws inspiration from the history and character of the Wynwood neighborhood and blends its industrial past and artistic present. The Project’s design reflects the openness and connectivity of the Wynwood community through the strategic use and location of the Crossblock Paseo. The Project’s design also responds primarily to human scale and pedestrian interests,” Attorney Iris Escarra wrote in a letter to city planners.

The project is proposed to include:

  • 40 apartments (ranging from 510 to 665 square feet)
  • 37,025 square feet of office
  • 15,880 square feet of retail
  • 83 parking spaces

The eight-story building will include four floors of parking above commercial and three floors of office, while the five-story building will include residential above commercial.

Arquitectonica is the architect.

The project was sent to the Wynwood Design Review Committee for a hearing at a meeting last week.

“Wynwood became a GLOBAL phenomenon because of the murals?”

Gee, I thought it got known because of the Artist that moved in.

You do realize gentrification means displacement of people, right? Where the murals are/were were historically industrial uses, not residential. There’s residential in Wywnood that most likely will be displaced in the future, but as of now, this isn’t textbook gentrification.

Right on…industrial spaces and vacant spaces aren’t “gentrifying” anyone.
Besides, gentrification only happens to RENTERS.
And the only people that bitch and whine about it are “community organizers”, “journalists”, and politicians.
Landowners (regardless of race, gender, color, pronoun, or creed) all win when neighborhoods become more prosperous.

This is a beautiful building. I like many of the buildings being built in Wynwwood, with that industrial look so unique to this neighborhood.

The residential component is okay. At least they didn’t plaster balconies all over it that let your neighbor see you from below. The office is just a 1960s glass box office building squatting over a metal box with magnets all over it.

This render makes the building look huge when in reality is only a small plot of land.

Yes, this is a shame. On the plus side, this is one of their better designs. It’s not nearly as butchered as some of their other Wynwood designs.

Why does it seem we are getting all our new office space in Wynwood? Rather than areas connected to mass transit? These are the kinds of buildings that would be great in Park West/Overtown or around the Virgin station. Instead we get proposals for 70+ story towers that never turn into anything and just stay vacant lots for decades.

Density and critical mass. If it’s just residential and some retail, there will never be mass transit stops. If you create a node of office employment, commercial, and residential, there will be a critical mass required for an added transit stop. I believe Virgin and/or Tri-Rail have been in the talks of adding a station near 29th St.

Heck, it can extended more than a few blocks. We have idiots running this city who see that there is already a mass transit system that’s been in place for decades now and they don’t have any idea of how to manipulate and capitalize on it.

What is that thing sticking out of the top of the building? It looks like a paste-up wasn’t removed before the final shot (I know, it’s all digital now, but this has happened more than once in the past).

Wrong.

The word “Their” is possessive pronoun.

The word “They’re” is a contraction of “there” which is an adverb.

Run along now.

Hey Joel, not every wall has to be some kind of “art mural.”

Only, it kind of does for this neighborhood per the zoning code. Also, didn’t know art was a “third world” thing.

I think you need to start paying more attention when you see pictures of south American cities. A lot of them have blocks and blocks of walls with painting just like what you see in Wynwood. In Cities in the USA, maybe with the exception of a very very few, you don’t see this. Now, what the comment said is correct, because even in Wynwood, not every wall there has to have some kind of “artist painting” on it.

Either way it’s still offensive to equate South American cities as “third world.” The official term is developing nations. You’re dating yourself with this 3rd world speak.

Wynwood needs parking maximums now! Downsize all these giant garages and kill the I-95 interchange proposed and extend the metromover.

Wynwood needs a NASCAR track. And tear down Metromover/rail and replace bike lanes and bus lanes with drag strips. Whatevers left after that convert into parking garages and surface lots.
