Related Group and Block Capital Group (operating as Wynwood 26th Street Owner LLC) have submitted plans to build a project called Wynwood 26, located at 51 Northwest 26 Street.
Project architect Arquitectonica describes the design:
Wynwood 26 is a multi-family residential building located mid-block along 26th street and 27th street. Without a strong apartment building vernacular style in Wynwood, this project aims to create a new residential typology for the neighborhood while respecting its industrial roots. The square courtyard building in plan includes ground floor retail, a cross-block paseo, and 174 apartments on levels two through five with a courtyard and rooftop. Parking is neatly concealed in the mezzanine level, not visible to the exterior. The structural grid and slabs of the building are showcased and regularly spaced as expected from its predecessors. A metal canopy with structural stays provide the sidewalk with protection from the elements. On the upper levels, the apartments have Juliet balconies, which keeps the facade of the building clean and flat, while the grid-like operable windows recall an industrial aesthetic and playfully shift along the length of the facade. The flat facade ideally serves as a backdrop for panels, which gradually change in color from east to west, with a break where the residential lobby is located.
The 1.21-acre property is zoned for 150 residential units per acre, and the developer is proposing 174 units. Total FLR of 238,495 square feet includes 36,300 square feet of commercial space.
Zoning calls for 254 parking spaces, but the developer is asking for a waiver to build 75 fewer spaces than required by paying into the Wynwood Parking Trust Fund.
Miami’s Urban Design Review Board will review the plans this month.
