Wynwood Square Is Now Under Construction With Hundreds Of Apartments, Along With Office & Retail

Developer CIM Group said today that they have commenced construction at Wynwood Square, a major mixed-use project.

The project spans a full city block at 2201 N Miami Avenue, with the project site totaling 1.78 acres.

Wynwood Square will include 27,000 square feet of retail and studio space at street level. Above that will be three office floors extending across the full block, with a total of approximately 60,000 square feet of office space.

Two eight-story towers will have 257 apartment units, set above amenity space and a garage with 480 parking spaces.

The retail, office, and apartments feature floor-to-ceiling windows

CIM acquired the site in October 2018 with approved plans, and partnered with One Real Estate Investment as a co-developer. The developers obtained a $71.2 million construction loan in April.

CIM is also an owner and co-developer at Miami Worldcenter, and developed the 43-story Caoba Miami Worldcenter tower which was completed in January.

Completion of Wynwood Square is expected in mid-2021.

Stantec is the architect.

Love it.. whole area is getting gentrified.. empty lots will be a thing of the past.

And there are tons. From Edgewater to I95, from Design District to Brickell. There are a ton of undeveloped lots. A whole new city could be built.
So much wasted land

Worse traffic ever!

10 years ago when the loft in downtown Miami opened I moved there, to a 1 bedroom on the 14th floor brand new, paid 1,100.00 for 1 bedroom, with 1 normal closet, after 1 year transferred to a 2 bedroom 2 bath huge space for 1350.00 into the future 2019, same 1 bedroom is now 1,900.00 with same 1 closet, and that huge 2 bedroom is over 2000.00 and area has gotten worse with homeless and traffic, streets are tight, no parking, to get into brickell area there is only 2 streets down 2nd ave past wholefoods and other side, its ridiculous lol, traffic to get into brickell is horrible ….no parking anywhere streets are tight and small….horrible….

Sure, live in a dangerous and dirty neighborhood and pay $2000 a month for a tiny closet-type studio. Welcome to the new Wynwood 🙂 way to rip off people. How about some affordable apartments, especially since the neighborhood is not that great

I love how these developers cry about how they can’t lower the prices to make truly affordable and they winge about thin margins and then they manipulate the books to make it look like they’re barely making a profit all while they become billionaires !

TOTALLY AGREE

Worse traffic ever!

But the streets will not change little tiny tight streets that cant be widen you can build up….but you cant make streets wider and bigger…who the hell wants to be stuck in traffic for hours on a weekend….plus phone RECEPTION in WYNWOOD is HORRIBLE once you’re in that area you have to walk several blocks to call an uber that will never arrive cause traffic is horrible. And theres 1 thing that’s very important you cant go out at night it’s very dangerous!!!

a new cell tower would likely fix that. 😉

I love gentrification! Kick out the homeless and the poor, they’re only holding the city back from growing and becoming a true world class city. Gentrification makes cities better 100% and that is a fact!

At least it brings more activity to the area. Though there is some activity with tourists and nightlife right now, parts of the area has been a little bit forgotten. This will not only bring more nightlife with more tourists and more shops and restaurants to the area but it will also bring more jobs. Especially since there is another office development going up Nearby and one that is about to open.

Where are the jobs at so people can afford to live here??

Come on..really? You are comparing Miami to Monaco? Miami is one of the poorest cities in the country. I applaud all this new construction in Wynwood. Its a great step in the right direction but it will take some time before it gets truly transformed. I was there this week-end and thought about how run down most of it still is, but, its getting better. The majority of galleries and restaurants are still occupying old and run down warehouse spaces. There are more of those than nicer (fixed up) or new spaces. These types of residential/commercial buildings will help. But, Soho it is not.

Miami is one of the poorest cities in the country? What are you drinking? I know, you must be from Ft. Lauderdale.

I always hear that story that miami is so poor, they are always trying to associate miami with poverty. most of cities in the us wish they were as popular as miami

Anonymous

Popular for vacationers has nothing to do with being one of the poorest cities in the country. When you go on vacation do you go hang out in the poor neighborhoods? Do you ask the people you come across how much money they make? The Japanese couple or the French family that come visit don’t venture more than a few blocks from the tourist areas or the beach. Most, by far, dont even stay in Miami. If they leave the beach, they are driven to Bayside, Museum Park, Zoo Miami or heaven forbid, the Miami Seaquarium. Have you ever seen tour buses in Overtown? Little Haiti? Hialeah? Brownsville? Pork and Beans? Come on man…try as you may, it is what it is.

miami is not only popular for tourists. most of miamians love their city. many big companies have their headquarters in miami and it is a very important city in commerce and finance. so its not as bad as some people want to make it look.

Anonymous

Yeah right. Do you know any well off waitresses, bus boys, hotel maids, taxi drivers? That’s what we have. The Fountainbleau may be beautiful, The Shore Club may be fabulous, The Four Seasons may be fab, but the poor folks who work there are ….well, you know…poor.

The jobs will come right after the impoverished, illiterate, uneducated people move out and real STEM grads from Boston, NYC, DC, etc… migrate down here.

We gotta price them out first tho… we’re still working on it.

Florida has just 19 Fortune 500 Companies. Most are not even in Miami. Remember when so many of you were dreaming of Amazon’s new headquarters? The vast majority of people in Miami live paycheck to paycheck. Service related jobs, (which represent the largest portion of our work force) don’t pay enough money for families to truly get ahead. We don’t have Wall Street or Madison Avenue,the major high tech manufacturing centers of the Northwest (Seattle), or the tech giants of San Jose and Silicon Valley. We are known for sun and fun, hip-hop weekends, and a few high-end party clubs. Period. It’s a nice place to visit…but who really can afford to live here?

Worse traffic ever!

3 or 4 people live in 1 bedroom with futons all over area….

Kiss good bye to many of the murals that made this are special. I think this area ten years from now will be another Grove, or South Beach without the beach.

This is being built on empty lots as a lot of new development is. Besides, most projects have incorporated art in their designs. I think the area will be HOT in 5 years

Yess.. let’s build on all the empty lots so rents will even be even higher in the next 10 years.

Absolutely correct, sir !!! I’ve already predicted that .. in the end all there will be are boxy nondescript mixed use crap with an homage of phony ‘graffiti’ in the lobby area with plenty of resto’s and “boutiques” and a bunch of hipsters twisting their beards saying… WTF are we doing here ???!!!

great project but this area has a massive homeless population. I would not want to live around this block.

Anonymous

I agree ….. pioneers will pay the price to develop the area

Anonymous

Why is this downvoted… it’s the truth the first people in an undeveloped area are urban pioneers… someone has to be the first… will lead to more growth

marc

How are they paying the price? The place will be empty? No one’s going there? I mean this isn’t some desolate area? Kush is a few feet away Salty Donut also nearby.

Anonymous

Kush is a dump. Keep the concept/food…but redo the building!

marc

The point is there is plenty of activity on Miami Avenue in that area and its not bum related. You have to go over a block or two for the bum action.

Anonymous

massive homeless population? you’re confusing this area with downtown miami o maybe you have n’t been there since they started gentrifying this area

Anonymous

It’s not a contest.
Salvation Army has a big presence at NW 23rd St & NW 1st. Miami Rescue Center Mission for Women is across the avenue.
Miami Rescue Center is two blocks down.
I’ve walked through on my way to Wynwood and seen over a dozen people sleeping on the streets. Always at least six hanging around. I don’t know if that makes it massive, but it could certainly affect many folks’ decisions about the location.

Anonymous

I agree. But many here REFUSE to admit that there is truth to some of these “negative” comments. The truth is the truth. There are some really exciting things happening in Wynwood, BUT, most of it still looks run down, and YES there are lots of homeless people sleeping in dark corners and driveways. I’m never too drunk not to notice.

Anonymous

the homeless people hang out around 20st. they don’t mix with the tourist and visitors,they don’t hang out at the galleries. wynwood is associated with arts and entertainment not with homelessness.i hope they find the homeless a place to live but a lot of them are drug addicts and want to be on the streets

Anonymous

drive down this area around 10pm…. I did last night & saw about 50 people on sidewalks sleeping.

No confusion! If you actually go to Wynwood you’ll see large amount of homeless

It’s hard to distinguish hipsters from the homeless these days.

Lol.

I wouldn’t either. Too many homeless and dangerous people. And these new apartments will charge you like $2000+ a month for tiny studios and $3000+ for tiny 1-bedrooms. Such a rip off! No thanks.
