City Approves Apartment Building That Will Replace Wynwood Yard

Wynwood Yard will soon be replaced by an apartment building, after Miami Planning & Zoning officials approved developer Lennar’s Wynwood Green project.

Approval was granted last week, and Lennar is expected to close on the land by the end of the year. Lombardi Properties is the seller.

Wynwood Yard will remain open on the site until spring 2019, when they will open a new venue in Doral. The owners told the Herald that business has dropped 20-40 percent since news broke that they were being replaced.

The 11-story Wynwood Green will include:

  • 189 apartments
  • 324 parking spaces
  • 16,768 square feet of commercial

Dorsky Yue is the architect.

Totally agree. They should have looked somewhere in Little Haiti or Little Havana first.

Or the old McAuthor dairy building that is now a empty lot on 7th Ave and 24st.

You’ll be surprised.
Doral is one of the fastest growing cities in FL
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t particularly like it, traffic is horrible and you basically have to own stock on the Palmetto to go anywhere, but it’s building up and people love it. It’s become a destination in its own right

Who is going to want to live in Wynwood when its soul and character have been replaced by yet another sea of parking pedestals with splotches of ground floor retail (most likely to be more sushi restaurants and fly-by-night clothing retailers)?

Wynwood needs more of this residential building. Everything cannot be bars/ food trucks. All is about the balance

The buildings do have murals on them and most have that industrial vibe so it compliments the area.

As much as I dislike Lennar, it is their land that they bought so they can do with it want they want.

Of course, I’m just pointing out that there is more to Wynwood than the name. Once that character is gone you may as well live in Midtown or any other part of Miami that they’re throwing up apartment towers.

The Doral Yard just doesn’t have the same ring to it.

Neither did their location in Edgewater at first. Doral is an up and coming city so giving time, this new spot for the Yard will catch on in Doral.

Doral is an overrated suburban nightmare. It is a city in name only. People from Doral go east to Wynwood/Downtown/SOBE. Not the other way around.

I guess you should tell the owners of the YARD that they’re making a BIG mistake by making this decision to relocate to Doral.

They probably are. Their clientele is mostly made up of young millenials without children. Older Doral suburbanites are not going to go to an outdoor bar with no air conditioning. Besides, no one ever says “let’s go party in Doral.” Doral is a horrible place for day drinking and bar hopping.

I liked Wynwood Yard. But this type of development can only help the neighborhood. I’m hoping for a metromover station between Wynwood and Midtown.

Yep from the school board station going up North Miami Ave and ending at midtown.

And the Metromover is so easy to add on and extend.

I disagree. I prefer a “loop” along NE and NW 2nd Aves.

Coastal Link will serve the area. People are talking about Wynwood’s character, and Metromover would certainly ruin it and anywhere else outside of Greater Downtown Miami, for what it was designed for.

There will be no character left when it is all apartment buildings and chain stores… just like Lincoln Road. Whoever goes there unless you have someone from out of town?

This area had character. It will soon be gone.

The area is going through a transformation for the better. It’s been decades in the making.

So true. The transformation is evident for anyone that remembers the old garment, shoe and furniture manufacturing days.

It is gone. As soon as the tour buses arrived with self stick toting people referring to the murals as “graffiti” I knew it was over.

Wynwood was really cool 10 years ago. But they continue to bulldoze the cool places people go there for in exchange for apartments… so when all those people move into the “cool” hood there won’t be anything left to do.

There might still be some cool hangouts.. I would think the developers know what they are doing.

First of all, your grammar stinks. Second, do a little fact checking and find out for yourself how many bars and clubs have closed in the surrounding areas in the last two and a half to three years. Apartments and the people they bring are sorely needed from the Design District all way to the new Miami Central Station. Many neighborhoods in Miami has to change, it can’t expect to keep up with other cities by relying on the same ole status quo.

We need more urbanists and less developers. Most of these projects provide little in creating vibrant neighborhoods. It’s a stale building type.

I’m guessing they’ll use the garage for commercial purposes instead of just being for residents. Hopefully, they’ll charge less rent to tenants who don’t need a space like Melo is doing in their new buildings.
