Moishe Mana Begins Work On ‘Transformative’ Mana Common Project On Flagler Street

Work is now underway on the first phase of Mana Common, developer Mana Group has announced.

The first phase will include interior demolition at Downtown’s Flagler Station building, which is now underway. Completion of the first phase expected in early 2021.

Flagler Station is set to become the eventual centerpiece for the project and will become the home to Mana Group’s various tech and university partners

Following completion of the first phase, future stages will be delivered steadily over the subsequent three years, revitalizing nearly 50 properties, Mana says.

“This is a crucial first step as we work to reinvigorate historic downtown and transform it into an economically vibrant commercial neighborhood, blending the best in art, entertainment, fashion, technology and more,” said Moishe Mana. “Much like our work throughout Manhattan and Jersey City, this is a long-term project with serious transformative potential, but with that comes great responsibility. We are committed to delivering a project that benefits the entire city and shows the world the benefits that come with a focus on building communities, not buildings.”

The mixed-use Mana Common Flagler will serve as a sister project to Mana’s Wynwood project, with a similar focus on building multi-disciplinary communities. Beyond renovations to existing buildings, Mana’s plans for Flagler Street include a pedestrian-friendly streetscape with widened sidewalks, additional valet parking spaces, larger shade areas and more. Once complete, the reimagined Flagler Station will feature approximately 20,000 square feet of class-A retail and office space.

What a shock: Hes renovating “part” of this dilapidated eyesore and its gonna take him a couple years to do it. Spoiler: Hes only gonna renovate some retail space because the stereo and luggage shop owners hunting for EB-5 visas have all dried up and he cant find anyone else to pay rent in this disgusting dump.

Why do you guys even bother putting any of his announcements up? He’s done nothing for 15 years now. Were not fooled by any of this nonsense. Werent we just treated to a photo of “Hard hat Mana with his sleeves rolled up” a few months ago? Hows that building looking?

Can this guy just go away? I walked by there earlier this week and absolutely nothing is going on. Mana is truly a despicable human being. I saw he was selling his house in that other article and I got excited because maybe it was a sign this clown circus was leaving town once and for all

For all the slack Mana gets, if he would follow through on his promises and put action to his words, he could truly transform Miami into a model city

Moishe Mana hates Trump. He has been on stage deriding the guy on several real estate events.

Moishe has a warehouse in Wynwood and several dilapidated Flagler buildings.
Trump owns a $400M Golf resort.

Little Moishe has this little Napoleon complex…
Moishe is 5’2″, Trump is 6’4″.

I hope Moishe wakes up to reality one day, kiss the ground that allowed a little short moving company owner to be a real estate player, and he takes his hater attitude and just does something on a high level.

Moishe Mana hates Trump. Trump probably doesn’t even know that this little insignificant guy exists.

Just for clarification….Moishe owns about 40 acres in Wynwood. Not just the Mana Wynwood warehouse. He’s still a landbanking douche who cries that he can’t do anything because of Trump.. for some reason. lmao

Or if the city actually followed their own ordinances against blight and vacant commercial properties, these slumlords would be more like landlords. Imagine if the city, cra, dda, etc. came in and actually did their jobs and penalized these slumlords for letting their properties get to the condition they’re in?

No bike lanes? Trying to add some bikes in the rendering to make it look good but all it did is make me realize how bad this is and remind me why Florida leads the country in bicycle deaths. One guy is just riding on the road behind a car, right next to what I assume is street parking, waiting to be hit by an opening door and the other guy is just stopped on the sidewalk not knowing what to do.

Even if he actually did this, he’s just piggybacking off what was already a planned park where the old Lerner Shops in between the old Woolworth/Foot Locker and Burdines/Macy’s buildings. At least he isn’t destroying the old art deco facade anymore…-well actually he is letting it fall apart and leaving graffiti as if it’s “art.”

Mana is doing something to his buildings? Now thats a shocker! I think he will get it done within 10-12 years.

I spent probably 4 months with the people at Mana. I can assure they are totally underqualified to achieve those goals. They are not going to drop a penny, that is their policy. They want everybody else to do it and all this is a bubble. 10 years from now… 100% sure that Mana will be long gone. 100% sure some other people will be taking care of Downtown, but no Mana.

While I agree he has to done much, and doubt this the end project will look anything like this. No one says anything about Sergio Rok. He is also part of the bid and has done nothing. He finally completed the demolition of his building 3rd ave after two years. Nothing going on….

Anonymous

Because Rok is “Old Miami” and Mana is new to the scene. Sergio’s late father, Natan, did so much for this city. Sergio inherited it at the wrong time. Add to that what his neighboring properties look like (cough Mana’s cough) and there goes any incentive he had to improve his property.

You’re paying high rent for the high foot traffic and large daytime population (depending on where in downtown you’re at). Downtowns aren’t supposed to have ample parking, that’s why they’re downtowns. If you want cheap rent and ample parking, move to a strip mall in a suburb.
