Mohawk At Wynwood Submitted For Design Review With 226 Residences

The developer of Mohawk Wynwood has submitted the project for a hearing before the Wynwood Design Review Committee.

“Mohawk is the pinnacle of cool,” said Diego Ojeda, President of developer Rilea Group, in a statement released last June.

Construction is planned to begin in 2023, the developer said at the time.

The project was already submitted for review by Miami’s Planning & Zoning Department in November 2021. The developers are requesting a waiver approval under the Miami 21 zoning code.

Mohawk at Wynwood is proposed to have 422,007 square feet of floor area in a 12-story and 8-story building, with:

  • 226 residential dwelling units
  • 24,629 square feet of ground floor retail
  • Enclosed 318-space parking garage for vehicles, screened with a reclaimed red brick veneer and decorative aluminum prism grill

Deforma Studio is the architect.

The Wynwood Design Review Committee hearing is scheduled for March 8.

Oh no! There goes Morgan’s, sad face.
But at least what’s replacing it is good.

The last I heard, this development will not replace Morgan’s. The development lot doesn’t reach all the way to N. Miami Ave. Have you heard otherwise?

Miami showing how to make unique high-density low rises.

Everywhere else, the same boring 5+1 designs are being copied and pasted onto sites with no regard for the local character.

IDK, for every decent low/mid-rise apartment building Miami gets, there are five Arquitectonica or Melo monstrosities I would take a 5+1 over that adequately conceals its parking garage and lines up its windows and balconies.

The irregular paintjob between the windows on the middle part makes it look like the pinnacle of cheap and nasty.

Interesting, someone just invested to create a Jamaican store in the building that currently sits there.

This is why there needs to be a intersection traffic light on NE 1st Ave. Cars have issues turning and the trade joes two blocks north will make it worse.

I really dislike the design. It looks like it should be in Boston or Philadelphia. Doesn’t really reflect the local subtropical oasis that is Miami.

Cool to have that random out of place building .

It does, however, fit in with the mid-rise character of new buildings happening in Wynwood.
Variations on a theme.

Totally agree, they should have proposed a gigantic Polo Tropical style building decorated with fiberglass maracas and fake palm trees.

As long as they have balconies, I’m not concerned if they look like they belong in Boston or Philadelphia.

You mean Miami will start to look like an actual city in the US? Oh no.

Miami looks better than all cities in the US. Hate on that.

Yes… 100-year-old NYC Park Avenue apartment towers and Philadelphia brownstones pale in comparison to the oh-so ICONIC Arquitectonica cigarette boxes with juxtaposed balconies or some tech bro or basketball star’s spec house that looks like a computer battery back-up.

As a Uber eats driver can you make sure there is plenty of accessible temporary parking for us? Also make sure the units are numbered properly and laid out properly instead of strange systems

The city/county really needs to do something about all those vacant lots. Maybe a large-percentage tax after 12 months+ of emptiness

In terms of urban sustainability, Miami does not have an effective public transportation, by incorporating public transit this city will be more livable, the amount of cars, traffic at all the times, with constant crashes along the roads and to find parking!!! Before start building and offering a luxurious living, we need to ask ourselves what factors make a city great?
