Wynwood Urby Developer Signs Utilities Deal For 289 Apartments, Applies For Demo Permit

The developer of Wynwood Urby has signed a utilities deal and applied for a demolition permit.

According to the August 25 utilities deal for water and sewer service from Miami-Dade County, Wynwood Urby will include:

  • 289 apartments
  • 8,000 square feet of full service restaurant
  • 9,200 square feet of retail
  • 1,450 square feet of office
  • 193 parking spaces (not included in the utilities agreement)

A demolition permit to clear the site was applied for in July, city records show.

Urby is a joint venture between David Barry and Brookfield Properties.

Amsterdam’s Concrete is the design architect, with 5G Studio the architect of record.

Might think about burying power lines here

Is there a reason for why they wouldn’t bury these (aside from cost)? Wynwood has power lines everywhere and it looks terrible.

Because that comes from the city, not private developers. Miami doesn’t invest in it’s public like that (civic projects, libraries, beatification, transportation systems). The nice stuff is all private.

What about the UNDERLINE park and the planned park under the SIGNATURE BRIDGE?

Wasn’t the Underline entirely privately-funded?

Yes it’s all donation based to maintain with federal grant money in the mix to develop (the development is fully funded)

The Underline land is Miami-Dade County owned, and was not purchased by a Private entity. The funds raised to plan, design, and build came a many sources; some private, and some public.

The Underdeck has some City land, some County Land, some DOT controlled land, and some FECI controlled land. The funds used to plan, design, and build are coming from private and public sources.

No. The Underline was not “entirely privately-funded”.

Umm, no. The utility poles and privately-owned. Either the city or developer pick up costs.

Of course voters in Miami do invest in Civic projects,.
Who the hell convinced you that “Miami doesn’t invest in it’s public”? Don’t believe anything else that person tells you.

Property owners are responsible for the power lines from the street to their connection, and FPL/Municipalities are responsible for them on the streets.

They need the powers lines for the new train station on 27 Street. It will be electric.

Costs are the only real reason.

One reason is that when it rains, underground lines become underwater lines.
Another reason is that underground lines are more expensive to access and service.

Still wondering when it will get its first grocery store. With all these apartments opening up soon, it’s bound to happen sooner or later. And I understand Trader Joe’s and (soon) Whole Foods are in Midtown, but I believe Wynwood proper needs food options too.

He is saying “NEEDS” when he really means “WANTS”. They must have stopped teaching kids the difference at some point.

The Midtown development is in Wynwood. Calling them separate would be like calling MWC a separate neighborhood from Edgewater. “Greater” Midtown is Wynwood and Edgewater.

Midtown has been officially redefined as its own neighborhood.

Midtown is Midtown. Downtown is Downtown. Wynwood is Wynwood. Edgewater is Edgewater.

By the way, I thought that the Midtown Community Development District’s budget was funded from bonds and parking facilities income…are there additional Property Taxes paid for owners in the Midtown CDD?

Are you serious? Edgewater and MWC are absolutely separate and I have never heard anyone consider them the same until now. Get a clue.

Does anyone know if Shelter and/or Beaker & Gray will be torn down for this development, or if it will just be built in the vacant lot to the left of Shelter?

It will be just beyond Shelter and B&G – the lot was already cleared, so those two establishments will remain!

Because this was the lot that was on the market and made business sense for them to buy.
