Investor Wants To Build Wynwood Residential/Hotel Project

An investor is proposing a 12-story mixed-use project in Wynwood, but the city’s Planning Department is recommending denial of a rezoning request needed for the project.

Ira Lang, a car dealer and real estate investor, plans 214 residential units, 100 hotel units, along with retail and parking space on a vacant 1.43 acre lot at 2110 North Miami Avenue.

Zoning changes requested by Lang would allow for a project that is ‘out of scale’ with the neighborhood, according to the Planning Department. The land had been previously zoned for residential, before being changed by Miami 21 to Light Industrial zoning.
