Quarters Co-Living To Be Built In Wynwood With 200 Furnished Apartments, Designed By Arquitectonica

Developers are planning to build an 8-story co-living project called Quarters in Wynwood.

W5 Group LLC announced the project in a press release last week, saying it is partnering with Related Group. W5 will provide 80 percent of capital.

There will be 200 apartments, all of which will be furnished. Residents will have free access to co-working space, a fitness center, and a rooftop pool. There will also be weekly events run by management of the building.

The ground floor will include 3,600 square feet of retail.

Quarters, a Berlin-based co-living company with plans for 3,000 beds worldwide, will manage the property.

Related purchased the site last summer, and the former Wynwood Yard property is next door where Lennar is now developing the Wynwood Green apartment building.

Arquitectonica is the architect.

Metromover or thousands of new parking spaces in wnywood. Which one is better for business + people?

Both are needed.

Metromover, however, the county rather spend 1 billion dollars to add a Lexus lane to I95 between DOWNTOWN and the Golden Glades, than improving the transportation system in one of the densest areas of the county. The Lexus lanes are a cash cow, Metromover isn’t!

Luckily the express lanes are already there so I don’t really see your argument, we could easily do metro mover now. Not to mention express lanes cost far less than a metro mover expansion

They are adding one more Lexus lane to the one already in place. DO YOUR HOMEWORK!

the difference is that your so-called “Lexus lanes” are paid for through the issuance of revenue bonds. it’s not $1b of taxpayer money. the drivers pay for the cost of construction.

adding $1b in mass transit would mean shifting $1b in spending from elsewhere. riders don’t pay nearly the cost of construction or operation.

Do you actually think tolls cover the cost of building and maintaining roads? Because they don’t by a long shot. Driving is the most subsidized mode of transportation. If tolls and parking actually reflected the cost to build and maintain, a lot less people would be driving.

metro mover spurring more development, and increasing land costs due to the lowering of construction costs, all lead to higher land values and more development, more property taxes and sales tax = CASH COW

Market providers can get their European and northern inspirations all they want, but they should do their due diligence as to who actually lives here. The vast majority of Miami’s labor force is in low-paying jobs in retail and accommodations and food services. Until that changes, there won’t be much need for pricy units with shared workspace.

The whole idea is to go smaller when you live in an area with a finite amount of space. It’s really common sense.

Glorified dorms for the next generation. The next step after micro apartments! The next generation needs to stop obsessing about mass transit and sea level rise, and focus more on tangible home ownership, and what is going on out there in terms of housing.

Okay boomer. That’s some very genuine thinking you came up with there. Maybe we should also go back to living in the dark with no electricity and using horse and buggy for transportation.

If you have ever lived in the middle of a major city then you are going to find out the reality that you are 100% factually incorrect. If you want big properties and big homes then you need to go live on a farm.

Like people in Pinecrest, they gotta live on a farm since they obviously wanted big properties and big homes. Think before you post.

So is Pinecrest a part of Wynwood or in the city of Miami? Or are we talking about two completely different neighborhoods? Next time post with a little bit of sense.

So is Pinecrest out in farmland and not a suburb? Well then, yes I’m right and yes it’s a viable alternative to downtown living without living on a farm. Yet again, think before you post.

Pinecrest is an unincorporated suburb of Miami-Dade with fully established wealthy residents. It has little to nothing in common with Miami’s urban core neighborhoods.

I wasn’t talking about Metro Miami. I am still sticking to the original topic of Wynwood and this very project. You brought up Pinecrest, which has absolutely nothing to do with this Quarter development. Since you took my comment about the farm so literal, let me first apologize. Of course, you can have a big house in the suburbs. I am not talking about the suburbs. This is a City of Miami project. Understand? Bye now.

Millenials don’t really want to live like this but will sacrifice their comfort to live in a fun neighborhood at a price they can afford. Meanwhile 50 year old developers take advantage of that and make these tiny little rooms saying “that’s what millenials want”. Wonder if the next generations will follow this trend or will move on to another trend like moving to farms and growing their own organic vegan food or something lol.

“fun neighborhood” means a “place to find a mate”. Then comes kids and SUVs and by 30-35 they’re back in the burbs just like the OK Boomers they ranted about. We’ve seen this movie before.

Maybe if your generation didn’t ruin the economy, my generation could afford single family homes. I don’t care how great the economy is right now. The fact is, a large cohort was pushed into college and grad school because no one was hiring from 2008-2015ish. That has long term ramifications: crushing student loan debt and delayed workforce entry just to name a few.

Who said anything about tech? It’s ironic that someone is telling Millennials to ditch renting and buy houses when buying homes is what caused the Great Recession. We can’t afford a down payment, so we rent, and y’all get mad. If we take out a subprime mortgage to make you happy to buy a house, then the market crashes, and y’all get mad. I swear, there’s no winning with Boomers. Y’all really think you’re the chosen ones who could have never done anything wrong.

The problem is that mellineals want more than prior generations and do not underconsume to establish savings. Go look at old neighborhoods. Apartment buildings were 12 units with parking outside, stairs and sharing a common laundry room. There were no amenities. These buildings are a thing of the past as there are no demand for these. Today, it is front desk, security, gym, dog play area, sauna, steam room, car in garage and beautiful lush palm trees. These buildings are expensive to build, and expensive to run and maintain. Also, mellineals need to live in fun places where they can go out for dinner most of the time. Most are also driving high end cars. Starbucks would not have made it in the 80s. Homeownership requires some sacrifice and underconsumption. We worked hard, did it, and never complained.

Exactly.. the so-called “boomer” generation dealt with the “boom an bust” cycles that this economy is always prone to go through. Expecting the economy to constantly stay stable is like expecting a prostitute to only be with one man.

Wages went further back then, Boomer. Everything has become exponentially more expensive, yet wages haven’t risen with inflation. Back when you saved and didn’t “overspend,” a summer at McDonald’s could cover college tuition. Housing has appreciated far more than the rate of inflation. Get off your high horse acting like this generation is lazy or wants everything, when what we really want is a fair shot.
