Full Plans For Wynwood Works, Which Is Requesting Density Increase Under Attainable Housing Program

Wynwood Works is set for review today by a Miami board today, and the developers of the project are requesting a height and density increase.

According to a letter from the developer’s lawyer, the project is one of the first submitted under the Wynwood Attainable Mixed Income.

As part of the new zoning rule, developers are able to obtain height and density bonuses by promising to limit the income level of future tenants.

A height increase from 8 stories to 125 feet is granted to developers participating in the program. Developers also get bonus density of double the number of units normally allowed.

Wynwood Works is proposed as a 12-story multifamily residential affordable housing development, including 120 units ranging from studios to 2-bedroom apartments.

There will be 5,698 sq. ft. of ground floor commercial space on North Miami Avenue, with 5 levels of on-site enclosed parking and a mix of amenity spaces.

Magellan Housing and the Omni CRA are the developers, and the Miami Heat’s Udonis Haslem has been previously announced as a partner.

The Wynwood Design Review Committee is scheduled to review the plans at a meeting today.

Has anyone walked around Wynwood lately? It’s kinda trashy. They need full time cleaners and more greenery.

With the serious shortage of available housing it would be disappointing to say the least if this wasn’t approved…

Going to be crazy at the 20th and N Miami Ave intersection. The left turn lane needs a arrow. Along with the street parking taking up 1 lane on N Miami Ave and Oasis drop offs. Not going to be as pretty as the renderings. They will have to wait at least 10 years for metro mover.

No, what the area needs is less car parking, less cars (deduced demand), and options including bike lanes (For bikes/scooters), metromover, and tri-rail. Cars and car infrastructure do not have to be a given.

Yall really denying reality, the majority of the people that go to this area dont live in this area, without them driver or getting ubers the area would be empty. And stop talking about metromover, we are talking about what is there today.

you’re missing the point.. even if a “minority” of people shift modes… that has a huge impact. no one is suggesting that we “ban” cars or not allow them.. just to give people an option.. if even 20% of people choose a way besides car it has a positive impact on everyone.

Most of levels 1-5 are dedicated to car storage. Remove parking and build this project for people! Then no variance will be needed!

nothing says glut of overpriced apartments than a developer seeking a height/density easement for affordable units to soak up some of the costs and loan payments…and as everybody knows here they will have “requirements” to obtain those “affordable units”…

100% of the units are below market rate. Some of them are at 30% AMI.
