Chicago Developer Submits Plans To Build Wynwood Station With 210 Apartments

A Chicago developer has formally filed plans to build a project called Wynwood Station with 210 apartments.

The project is proposed to rise 8 stories at 45 Northeast 27th Street.

Several transportation options have been proposed just a short distance away, including a possible commuter rail stop on the Brightline tracks less than a minute away. There are also two Metromover stations proposed close by.

In addition to the residential use, the project is planned to include 11,607 square feet of ground floor retail and 27,486 square feet of amenity space for residents.

A parking garage with 283 spaces is also planned.

Fifield is the developer of the project. MSA is the architect.

The Wynwood Design Review Committee is scheduled to review the proposal at a meeting on September 14.

 

 

 

The proposed rail station on the Brightline tracks is a minute away from the project site:

Wynwood continues to evolve – what a success story!!

Wynwood Will be a completely different neighborhood 10 to 15 years from now. We won’t even recognize the place. You have a lot of art on buildings but you still have a fair share of empty lots. And that is about to change. And it’s changing fast. The area is about to become a live, work, and play experience.

Remove the play experience. As more of these buildings are built more of the entertainment options will disappear since they’ve relied heavily on outdoor event space. Wynwood as we know it is rapidly evolving but will not look like funky neighborhood we know now.

NIMBYs start out saying “I want to live in a vibrant urban environment! Look at me posting my new apartment on IG! I’m so special!”
Fast forward: “Ohhh it’s so noisy! Why are these people playing their music so loud?! Can’t somebody do anything about it? This isn’t what I signed up for! I paid a lot of money to live here!”

Hopefully with a Metromover station next to them so people don’t have to drive drunk

More like Allapattah, which I hope they don’t try and rename WestWyn or something.

Architects love these ‘box cutouts’ that frame parts of the building. all of this stucco is going to have mold growing off the side of it in 2 years since nobody maintains these elements properly.

Would you rather is be a plain flat-roofed commieblock box, complete with a Che Guevara mural? It’ll still last longer than Melo’s stuff.

18 bicycle racks. How generous. And 50 car spots over the required amount.

Yes. Very generous to bicyclists who, unlike cars, pay no gas taxes.

Why would a bicyclist pay gas tax… and how is that relevant?

That poster seems to think bicyclists and pedestrians should go to gas stations to pay gas taxes for using road facilities. This has to be one of the best comments ever posted to this site.

If you think that the gas tax is what pays for our roads, you’re living in a fantasy world.

Most people will bring their bikes inside their apartments and put them on their balcony. 18 is good for the two ubereats delivery and like five visitors who came on bike.

With a proposed MetroMover line going up Miami Ave, what’s with the need for a large parking garage?

Unless I see them creating a median for it up north miami ave its not happening. Even though its the most logical metromover extension

There’s no room for a median anyway. The proposed Brightline station with a Coastal Link stop would be the most logical transit option.

There is already a middle lane for turning guy and the brightline station is met to shuttle people from downtown to wynwood. that is for people coming from at least aventura.

Wyndwood is amazing but it needs a lot more density and all these buildings are going to do just that❤️

All these buildings plus the commuter line on the Bright line going north are game changers for this area! Imagine hopping on the train and getting to downtown from wynwood in 4-5 minutes.

Speaking of Chicago…where is TNM on the story that a developer plans to demolish Al Capone’s former house on Palm Island? That is craaaaaaazy to me. The place was fully and beautifully renovated just a few years ago by a spec buyer who hoped to sell it to a rapper or someone who would pay a premium to live in Al Capone’s original but modernized house. They couldn’t find a taker for that? So they totally squandered the 7-figure restoration/renovation investment? Wowwwwwww. Imaginate.
