Developer Applies For 29N Wynwood Construction Permit, Despite UDRB Denial

A construction permit has been applied for at the 29N Wynwood project, which recently received a negative UDRB vote.

The permit application was submitted in September. Miami’s building department continued reviewing the plans through October, records show.

Miami’s Urban Development Review Board voted against recommending approval of the project at their October meeting.

The plans were first submitted to the board for review in August.

According to an October UDRB resolution, the board still had the following issues with the design:

  • The updated plans did not provide breaking up of the façade along 30th Street
  • Lack of façade articulation
  • Lack of contextual relationship to character in Wynwood

In July, the Wynwood Design Review Committee voted in favor of approving the project, with the following conditions:

  • Engage art consultant for all interventions
  • Address setback issue on NW 1st Ave as it relates to T6-8-O/NRD-1 zoning
  • Improve articulation of façade at ground floor level (pedestrian experience)

According to the September construction permit filing, 29N is proposed to include:

  • 522 residential units
  • 214,513 square feet of office
  • 25,639 square feet commercial/retail

There will also be 668 parking spaces in a concealed garage, and a ground floor public plaza.

Total construction cost is estimated at $130m, the permit states.

Gensler is the architect.

No construction contractor is attached to the permit yet.

 

 The original plans sent to the Wynwood Design Review Committee can be seen here. Below are the most recent revision of the plans sent to the UDRB in October:

Agreed. The whole corporatization of graffiti in the area is cringe. Nothing could be less organic.

I love the large mural of two kids you see while coming in from the north, it screams corporate apologism

“yeah we displaced all these african american families, but hey, check this out, we painted a couple black kids on a wall. See, gentrification isn’t all bad, right guys?”

I truly don’t understand why this project was denied.
It’s a great addition to the area, it will bring density and diversity. Not everything in Wynwood has to be a whimsical graffiti explosion. Cities are interesting when there is hodge podge and alternates.

Exactly why it’s problematic all the parking being built (> 1.0 ratio) in the area.

That will lead to calls such as that (which, btw, FDOT dearly wants to build an interchange there, fyi), and other “congestion relief” aka widening roads, aka more traffic.

Build fixed rail, and a network of bicycle lanes, wide sidewalks for last block connectivity.

Fixed rail isn’t going to solved the massive traffic wynwood currently as.

I agree. There should be no more parking built from Brickell to the DD.
Let’s stop the madness.

Stop building parking and traffic gets worse, ppl aren’t just going to abandon their cars, not everyone that visit Wynwood live near transit or future transit lines

Congestion pricing would

That is punitive. Better to find win/win solutions. Creating lanes for scooters/bikes is a good start. Getting Metromover built up to DD and preferably in the form of a loop that would pick up Edgewater or western Wynwood would also be a big step. Miami won’t be built in a day, but the path is taking shape.

Brightline and Coastal Link stops are a good start, you know, where rail already exists for a stop at Midtown.

Is it out of the question to create another underpass between 20th and 29th? Seems to me that both I-95 and the rails break up the neighborhood flow considerably. Would be nice to open up Wynwood to the west more than it is currently.

The UDRB is a joke. Remember that solid office tower proposal at 888 Brickell they shot down, and it came back looking hideous mutilated and sodomized?

That project got canned? Wow. Sounds like the UDRB needs to be removed from Miami’s government.

This looks pretty nice. It’s just too bad that it’s going in Wynwood and not in Little Havana.

I think every alligator should be on the Miami review panel…Nothing gets done

Not for Wynwood

It is too big and much too bulky. It does not blend into Wynwood. But Gensler is known for doing crappy design. Will anyone pay attention to the UDRB?

More density for 29th st but i95 29th needs a entrance and exit. Go say muh Brightline all you want, people still going to be driving to wynwood.

If you remove the pastel appliques, it’s a boring white building. Could easily be government offices.

Okay, Kobi Krap. Sorry the developer took a pass on your recycled irregular windows and balconies and ugly mural slapped on a box.
