Wynwood Condo Hotel Proposed To Have A Tetris-Style Exterior

Wyndev Holdings LLC has submitted plans to the city for the Duos condo-hotel at 335 N.W. 28th Street in Wynwood – with a theme from a popular video game.

The exterior design of the eight-story structure includes tetris-style interlocking blocks. There will also be perforated metal panels and art murals featuring rotating artists covering the facade.

In total, 51 condo-hotel rooms, each which a kitchen, is proposed. There will also be 3,000 square feet of retail or restaurant, bringing the total size of the building to 37,547 square feet.

MKDA is the architect. The Wynwood Design Review Committee had been scheduled to review the plans this week, but the meeting was cancelled.

Love the lack of parking, and the new traffic-calming median running down NW 28th Street!

Ironic decision to add the median, as it would remove all on-street parking nearby the hotel…

Lack of parking? The new Wynwood Garage is a block away.

And hopefully expandable.

Yes, the lack of site-specific parking, which seems to be coupled with every new project down here. It’s refreshing to see a new project sans-podium.

That looks like city planning decision. They probably just incorporated it into the design.

Maybe he/she means a parking podium is not part of the project, thus “lack of parking”.

Now this looks like a project that embraces the Wynwood Aesthetic.

At least they admit it’s “Tetris-style” here, but we need less of this cluttered irregular blocks and facades, particularly with windows. Good architecture is based on symmetry and patterns, not going against it with crappy materials for the sake of being “cool.” More like being demolished in a decade…
