The Rider Planned In Wynwood With 130 Residential Units

A developer has just filed plans for another project in Wynwood, called The Rider.

The Rider is planned to rise 8 stories and include:

  • 130 apartment-hotel units
  • 6,439 square feet of ground floor retail
  • rooftop pool for residents
  • rooftop food service establishment open to the public, serviced by separate elevators
  • 146 garage parking spaces (reduced by 30% transit corridor waiver)

The garage fronting the FEC Railway will be screened with salvaged railroad rails, repurposed in staggered vertical pattern. The rails will be patinated from use and are expected to further weather and oxidize over time. An additional fabric screen will be mounted behind the rails to further obscure the garage and interior lighting fixtures from the street, a letter from the developer’s lobbyist said.

Deforma Studio is the architect.

Mohawk at Wynwood is located directly to the west of The Rider site, and Midtown Miami is across the street.

Rilea Group is the developer of both Mohawk and The Rider.

A hearing before the Wynwood Design Review Committee is scheduled for October 12.

Yes please. Expand Metromover to every intersection in the tri-counties instead of doing more dumb hyperloop studies.

You must be kidding. You’d think with the name and motif of this proposed building, it’s cashing in on the proposed Brightline and/or Tri-Rail Coastal Link stations for the area, instead of your fetish for a tin can shortbus that serves no purpose but transporting homeless, ruining streets, and maybe transporting residents in a defined area which is downtown.

Haha.. this guy is calling something a “tin can shortbus” but I bet he has and drives around in a much smaller car.

If the cost of a Metromover ticket was $10 per rider per ride, would pay it?

If the land acquisition costs, the construction costs and all capital expenditures amortized over a 50 year useful life added to the annual operating costs made the Wynwood to Govt Center ticket $15. Would you pay it?

If not, do expect people who don’t want to pay for to pay for it anyway?

“10 dollars?!” You just love using outrageous illustrations to get your asinine points across… don’t you?

I really love what Wynwood is growing into. I really hope that we retain a good portion of the “original” Wynwood though – meaning the older warehouses that have been repurposed into local businesses as well as the graffiti – thats what gives the neighborhood it’s character

Graffiti gives a neighborhood character like poop on the street gives character to San Francisco. The proposed murals detract from the viable character of this building, and blank space would be better concealed with more railroad rails. Change my mind.

If you can’t understand how the street art community contributed to the creation of and character of Wynwood then there is no point in trying to change your mind.

A misspelling I’ve seen more than once. And I see you’re getting “worked up” over what you perceive as somebody getting worked up..

Looks like 12 stories instead of 8 based off the rendering.

Wynwood by far my favorite area when it comes to building designs. A very timeless look similar to what you would find in a world class city.

Timeless? Bro this is the opposite of timeless. It literally has every trendy design element you could possibly think of. In two decades it will be out of fashion and will have to be retrofitted to whatever is considered “trendy” then.

To be clear, I like the design, but its pretty far from “timeless” architecture tbh
