This New Wynwood Project Is Proposed To Be Covered With A Rusty Metallic Finish, Topped By ‘Iconic’ Clock Tower

The developer of a Wynwood apartment building has submitted plans to build the brand new complex with a rusty façade and an “iconic” clock tower.

The apartment development, known as Wynwood Station, is proposed next to a potential site for the Wynwood train station planned along the Brightline tracks.

Wynwood Station is being developed by Chicago’s Fifield Companies. It is now in redesign from a previous submittal.

The iconic clock tower is planned to be designed by an artist that is to be determined, the plans show. The developer is asking for a height waiver to allow it to be built.

The second unique feature will be an aluminum mesh screen with a rusted finish covering the building’s parking garage.

Metal panels with a rusted finish are also proposed on the building’s balcony railings.

According to the latest plans, the 8-story Wynwood Station is proposed to include:

  • 210 apartments
  • 11,152 square feet of retail
  • 283 parking spaces in a 6-story garage

MSA is the architect.

Miami’s Urban Development Review Board is scheduled to review the proposal at a meeting on November 17.

This is the ugliest project proposed in Wynwood to date.

Good job, Fifield.

Did you see the last proposed design? That was actual garbage, this is much better. I think the rusted metal could be a cool look

‘better than the first proposal’ is a very, very low bar.

Yes, because a “cool” rusted metal corn in a turd makes up for everything!

You must be blind or unaware of practically everything designed by Arquitectonica here, or every other box with irregular windows and balconies, and parking garage with a bland mural slapped on them, dotting this neighborhood. Granted, this is nothing special… The only special development proposed was the one paying homage to a former Coke bottling plant that was on the site, and it never happened of course.

Question is..are we sure there are enough people to fill all these higher-end apartments coming to market?

If the past year is any indication, yes. They seemingly can’t build them fast enough here.

Liked it. It needs to be contextualized in the region, so it has everything to do with Winwood.

yep remember someone saying that the Elysee tower in Edgewater would be iconic? Now, we have friends from out of town saying “What is that ugly tower over there?” “Oh, that is the ‘ICONIC’ Elysee condo tower that missed its mark”.

Imagine the justification statement submitted to the city, justifying a six-story parking garage right next to a proposed train station as an “iconic rusty façade.” Oh, but there’s going to be a clock tower!

How exactly has the Magic city benefited from giving this rustbelt Chicago developer a bonus of 3 additional stories and 100 extra units, rusty cladding aside? As of right zoning here was 5 stories and 100 units prior to the passage of the “NRD” overlay, which appears to be just an upzoning. Sure the land owner benefits as does the developer, but what public purpose is served?

The “public purpose” is getting out of the way to allow the developer meet market demand for housing. More housing supply will help keep housing costs in check.

We did a job and there were sheets of rusting steel above our work. Created quite a mess with the rain water carrying the liquid rust .

“ICONIC” is the description for every building in Miami… enough with the word ICONIC!!! And the proposed–yet undesigned–clocktower is not going to “iconic”… it will be just another clock with lipstick on it.

I hate that all new developments in miami don’t have the unique cover side walks which used to have in downtown and coral gables. The new design makes miami to looks as any other us city.

Question is is it actually “rusty” metal being used or is just brown paint being used?

Even the render couldn’t make this thing look pretty. Rusty metallic, “it’s supposed to look like sh*t!”
