Photos Of The 80-Foot Stack Of Shipping Containers At Oasis Wynwood, Spotify’s New HQ

Oasis Wynwood is nearing completion, and new photos show the giant stack of shipping containers at the center of the project.

Spotify has signed a lease to occupy all of the project’s office space.

The shipping containers will include the Tower Bar at the bottom of the 80-foot stack.

Project engineer YHCE uploaded photos of the shipping containers to social media, saying that an inspection by the city’s Building Department was underway today.

When complete, Oasis will include:

  • 20,000 square feet of office (all leased to Spotify, where up to 100 employees will form their Latin America HQ)
  • Outdoor food hall & interior bar
  • 35,000 square foot courtyard
  • 17,000 square feet of retail
  • Live music stage

Carpe Real Estate Partners is the developer.

Urban Robot is the architect.

I was thinking the same, they need to put holes in it for the air could just flow through it.

Hi!, I understand your concern about a CAT5 hurricane impacting the tower, however, at YH consulting engineering we designed this container tower considering the hurricane zone, this was designed by a team of professional structural engineers at our office, considering the FBC and wind zone. Also was reviewed by the County and the City.
The container tower is not just a bunch of containers, this is a safe structure 🙂

It still scares me! It could’ve been one or two containers less.

Please never be an architect. Your too reserved. If it was up to you we’d still be using horses cause cars were just a lil too fast. Smh

Never mind the extreme elements the metal will be exposed to which accelerate structural degradation. Whenever a Category 5 hits, hopefully this will be long gone.

Is the tower purely aesthetic or is there a functional aspect to it (aside from the first floor bar)? All of the office and retail space will otherwise be in the surrounding buildings, and not the tower?

It’s sad someone involved in the project had to comment to state something so obvious. Apparently people think folks graduate elementary then go start putting up buildings

Port of Miami used to store hundreds of them there for transfer across the nation years ago.

I worked in Wynwood when it was the center of the garment and sewing trade in Miami. The warehouses here used to receive and ship rolls of fabric and other goods from around the world in containers like these. I don’t know about you, but I like this reference to the neighborhood’s past and appreciate the container repurposing.

Sweet looking project. The shipping containers are a fun touch. It’s wynwood you guys, having some quirkiness to the design is the point. Lots of opportunity for live music with spotify stage too! Hopefully the pandemic subsides and we can get some fun events happening here soon.

Super design elements that fit well with Spotify.

I was there last week and the courtyard is stunning. Can’t wait for it to open. Still I like to know how they are anchoring these containers. It doesn’t require a Cat 5 for them to fly, even with a cat 2 they will topple unless they are securely fastened like a cable stayed bridge which I do not see expect for the bottom most containers. Are the ones on Top welded to those on the bottom?

The only habitable floor on the container will be the first floor, with the container bar, the rest is just decorative.

Living inside a metal can is ridiculous. Especially, in Florida’s hot climate.
