Wynwood’s Former Coca Cola Property Sold, New Development To Be Unveiled Soon

A joint venture between Related Group, Alex Karakhanian, and Tricera Capital purchased a development property in Wynwood that once housed a Coca Cola plant.

The buyers can up to 12 stories, with 310 units and over 650,000 square feet. Development plans will be revealed later next year.

Wynwood Plant, a 12-story mixed-use project, was designed for the property by the previous owner, Thor Equities, but has now been cancelled.

According to architect Touzet Studios, the industrial design of Wynwood Plant was inspired by the former factory on the site. In renderings, there appear to be rooftop tanks.

The proposal included 306 small apartments. There would also have been 88,000 square feet of commercial and hotel space, and four stories of parking with 705 spaces, including one level of underground parking.

The 2-acre site is at 252, 268 and 286 Northwest 29th Street and 2801 Northwest Third Avenue. The buyers paid $32 million.

I guarantee Related Group will scale down this project and make it look like total sh*t.

Looks really nice unfortunately to nice for Miami! We all know how this works… Make the renders as nice as possible to get all the approvals then dumb it down to build cheap as possible and sell high as possible!

If you’re saying a project with no renderings looks nice, I can only assume you didn’t read the article.

Can we keep Related out of Wynwood?

Wishful thinking but as mentioned, beautiful design and concept that will be scrapped for a generic Related project.

Have you ever stepped foot inside an apartment at Related’s Apogee on South Beach?
Judging by the quality of your thoughts as you post, my guess is no. No. Dont have any friends in that Related project…have never done anything in your life to command an economic value enough to get an invite from anyone who lives in that Related project.

Related has made significant accomplishments in Miami. I am grateful for their presence. Hold back the negative comments unless you can do better.

Comparing Little River to Wynwood is like comparing Gucci to Old Navy.

Wow! Look at all the negativity in these posts! Seemingly not ONE read the article! And >> about the parking >> Wynnwood and it’s $$ are as a ‘destination’. >> meaning that people have to get there! The building-out of the property will take 24-months. Any mass transit (Metromover) will take a decade or more. >> Miami, just like most all major US cities, must accommodate cars as transportation! It’s brainless to think otherwise!!!!!!!

Super cool building! LOVE IT! Completely different… so tired of the same tall glass box. This will be a phenomenal addition to Wynwood.

Similar feel to the pearl in San Antonio. Looks different, hopefully it gets done without so much value engineering, but that’s unlikely

Of course, whoever is buying it will proposed some Arquitectonica, Kobi Krap, or Stantec monstrosity of clustered windows and balconies and giant parking garage covered by an ugly excuse of a mural.

So why do they need so many parking levels? I think Wynwood should be all about walkability

suomynona

Ideally Wynwood is going to remove much of the street parking to allow for wider, more pedestrian friendly sidewalks, as well “cleaner” looking streets.

A mass transit stop (OR MORE) would be great, but I think parking garages make sense to absorb the ever-increasing density in Wynwood and the eventual removal of much of the current on-street parking.

Yes. City approved the expansion.

The city also approved another FPL gimmick project at Bayfront Park, with shore power. True story.

Love the industrial design minus the water tanks. Those are synonymous with NYC not Miami. Moreover, why should we copy instead of innovate?

I agree and I don’t know how they arrived at the inspiration to put ugly water tanks on the roof from the original building…
