The Collective Submits Plans To Build Communal Living In Wynwood

The Collective has submitted plans to build a communal living property in Wynwood.

The 12-story building is being designed for young professionals, recent college graduates, people in lifestyle transitions and those new to Miami who are looking to meet like-minded individuals and participate in social gatherings, the foundation says.

Residents of The Collective unique will enjoy a low barrier to entry and a variety of duration of stay options. There will be all-inclusive billing, room cleaning, co-working spaces on site, laundry service, gym membership, and cultural events programming that sets it apart from other residential buildings.

The Collective Wynwood is proposed to have 180 residential units, 70 lodging units, and 9,508 square feet of ground floor retail.

A total of 82,000 square feet of shared amenity space is planned, representing 15% of the cumulative residential floor area.

An underground parking garage is also planned.

One rooftop will have a pool, while another will have dining and garden areas.

The architecture is said to have been inspired by natural geologic forms creating crevasses and shifts in the building massing, with an internal internal courtyard or “canyon space.”

The Collective currently operates 1,664 units across 6 cities in 4 different countries, with 19 projects under development in the pipeline.

nArchitects of New York is designing the building, with Corwil the architect of record.

The Wynwood Design Review Committee will review the plans at a meeting on April 14.

Hey nArchitects of New York, this is Miami.. don’t design buildings here in Miami for people to live in as if you’re designing them for NYC. People in Miami would appreciate balconies to come out on and enjoy the weather ya know…

I think the lack of balconies is quite refreshing as they are quite common here. Prospects could always rent at another building.

Please.. this is supposed to be an apartment building, not an office building. If these developers want to know how to correctly design an apartment building here in South Florida, they should probably consult others like the architects of the Wynwood Haus apartments or even The Melo Group. I mean, the downtown fifth towers are much taller and even they have balconies.

So I guess people in Miami also don’t like shade trees, walking, and taking transit. In case you didn’t read the description, the living arrangements proposed here doesn’t really make balconies sound possible. It would probably be a communal sky garden or something.

Exactly…… even El Cheapo condos on Bird Rd got balconies, the need to know the denands of the local market.

I think this is an interesting concept; however, the architecture design is lackluster for the area.

I quite like it. Better than that Related building that would have been decent without the bird cage balconies splattered on it, or something with a massive design flaw excused to put a mural.

I love the different living arrangements approach that is taking shape in Wynwood. It’s creating a environment to really meet new people and inspire ideas.

Yes, please make them fire the architect and hire Arquitectonica or Kobi Karp for a box atop a parking pedestal box with rainbow colors.

Interesting that they plan to build an underground garage for what is essentially affordable housing. Usually that’s reserved for luxury or large scale development due to cost.

this is not going to be affordable housing my friend, just smaller spaces at a relative $/sq. ft. premium. Less parking makes it cheaper to build.

Good. Besides, the music ain’t going anywhere, it’ll just be indoors.

Well, I guess that settles it then.. a band or DJ will have to change the music from salsa to blues if they have to go indoors in Wynwood.
