Wynwood Square Gets Approval After 7 Month Review, Construction Could Begin Soon

Miami’s Zoning Department has granted final approval to the Wynwood Square project at 2201 and 2245 North Miami Avenue.

The project application was submitted in December 2015. It was approved in March by Wynwood’s Design Review Committee and Miami’s Urban Design Review Board.

With approval, the developers can now apply for a construction permit. A pile permit was applied for on June 30, but it hasn’t been approved or pulled yet.

In April, the developers had said that they intend to begin construction by August.

When completed, Wynwood Square will include 267 residential units, 55,227 square feet of office space, 25,214 square feet of ground floor retail, and almost 500 parking spaces.

Because you are the type that actually believes gentrification is “progress”. Look beneath the surface of the inequality in this city before formulating an opinion.

Yeah it’s really a shame that some people are actually going to have to go to school, get degrees and good paying jobs to afford living in Wynwood

Does that include people from all socioeconomic backgrounds including people of color? Let’s get to the root of this.

Another bad project for Wynwood. People like the current atmosphere; smaller scale buildings, older/grittier architecture, local retailers, etc. Yet, here’s another proposal that develops an entire city block into one massive podium building covered in glass and balconies….just like every other new building in Miami.

“Wynwood Square” sounds like Wynwood to me. Besides, Midtown is full of these crappy gentrification projects that many people in Wynwood feel is not for them. Go away.

Anono, you hit the nail on the head. Most people I know like the current vibe and setting of Wynwood and DON’T want it to CHANGE. This is one of the few neighborhoods in Miami that most frequent visitors there already are attracted to, and they fear that projects like this will change the complexion of the area for the worse and not the better. The smaller scale buildings with graffiti give the neighborhood a lot of character for younger artists. When these big box stores and condos come to the area, the Wynwood that you and I both know will be vanished. Look what is happening with Overtown. In 15 years, it will be completely gone. I’m sick of the development. Just leave it ALONE!

Please just leave Wnywood alone. When is too much development just too much? It’s overwhelming to the area and is sucking the life and character out of Wynwood. Just stop. You’re only making it worse and not better.

Don’t mind the troll posing as an SJW. He’s probably the same person crying fowl at using “God’s House” for retail space in in the 1836 Biscayne Boulevard article.

Still, after seven months of review, this project is ugly. Apart from the curved corner, the base has ugly windows with crap sticking out everywhere. Furthermore, the towers are short and squat. Whether you like Wynwood the way it is, more housing is required to keep it going, and this is not how you do it.
