Sustainable Wynwood/Overtown Mixed-Use Development Called SoWy Planned

A developer just announced it has secured a $76.81 million loan for a sustainable, mixed-use development in Overtown and Wynwood.

JP Morgan Chase provided the loan.

More Development is the developer. The company has offices within the development site.

The development will be known as SoWy, and aims to stay faithful to the vibe of the neighborhood.

SoWy will span 26 parcels, or eight acres, along 2nd Avenue between NW 20th and 22nd Street to the east and southeast.  Nearly 2.5 million base buildable square feet is allowed before Live Local Act considerations.

Residential is a part of the plan.

“With financing in place, we are ready to realize the initial phase of our plans to invigorate the neighborhood with a new vibrant environment where people can live, work, shop, dine and play in a pedestrian-friendly and art forward setting,” said More Development President Whitney Thier.

No portmanteaus would be best. Wynwood South or South Wynwood would have been just fine.

Abbreviations are chic and cool, but this one is funny because it sounds like “sorry” in a baby voice.

Pronounce “Sow-ee”, “So-ee”, “So-Y”? None are good.

Been waiting a while for the overlapping area of Wynwood/Overtown to be developed. This is a great start!

The interlude between Wynwood/Overtown is such a mess, I am looking forward to a project that will start to merge the neighborhoods together in an appealing way. Right, now that border area is not great to say the least.

It’s still above 20th ave which is sort of like the unofficial line between Overtown and Wynwood

The ignorant commenters on this site are insufferable. This looks like an incredible improvement for a long-blighted area. Looking forward to this new master planned development.

“SoWy for gentrifying your neighborhood”

To be fair there’s mostly nothing there, but there are two what I believe to be affordable housing buildings which I hope they keep and incorporate somehow. Miami can’t solely be for rich people!

Renderings looks like a 1990’s mall, hopefully there’s a Sam Goody’s playing Britney Spears on repeat all day!

I’d rather die than listen to Britney Spears music for the rest of my life. There’s a reason I fled to Miami, couldn’t stand Hollywood pop music

Far better than what it’s currently there. It’s a random lot next to abandon homes, trash and empty lots. We will see a lot of these and it will be a blessing. Half of Wynwood is literally empty.
