Related Group and Metro 1 are now finalizing a construction permit for a project called Wynwood 29.
The project was resubmitted to the Urban Development Review Board earlier this year with a new design by Arquitectonica.
The UDRB comments included asking for a clear connection between the two project blocks that are across the street from each other, with either a bridge or landscaping and pavement design.
The board also asked the developer to consider breaking up the massing of the walls with some other visual shadow relief, and to consider a richer material other than the stucco.
Two buildings are being built – 12 stories (178 feet) and 8 stories, on opposite sides of the street.
Wynwood 29 will include:
Painted murals will cover the rear side of the building and the parking garage.
A construction permit was filed for in May and is moving through the approval process as of this week.
A utilities agreement for water and sewer service was signed with the county in August.
Lennar’s Wynwood Green project is under construction next door.
PRH Cho Dragon Wynwood, LLC is the developer. The company is a joint effort between Related Group and Metro 1.
