Wynwood Urby Proposed With 289 Multifamily Units, Designed By Dutch Architect

Urby, a joint venture between David Barry and Brookfield Properties, has submitted plans to build an apartment complex in Wynwood.

Urby already has developed and owns 3,000 apartments in the U.S. since 2016, with plans now underway for new properties in five cities.

Wynwood Urby is proposed to rise 8 stories and include:

  • 289 multifamily units
  • 17,238 square feet of ground floor commercial space
  • 193 parking spaces spread over two levels

Zoning law requires 400 parking spaces, but the developer is seeking a Transit Corridor waiver, bringing the requirement to 279 spaces. They are also building surplus bicycle spaces (in lieu of 14 vehicular spaces), and will contribute to the Wynwood Parking Trust Fund (for a 68 space reduction).

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

The project is set for a hearing before the Wynwood Design Review Committee on April 12.

Great to see some developers looking to build less parking. Wynwood could be a true live/work/play community with cars optional.

Especially with the Metromover extension along N Miami Ave. to the Design District.

Why should it be? The Metromover was built and its for the people of this city’s and tourist convenience. Dig further than six feet down in most places in Miami and you start seeing water. So a very expensive subway system is out of the question.

^ Hey sh*t for brains, I never said you were talking about a subway system. I’ll assume that it was you who said “… that is hardly a sure thing.” The first thing I said was “Why should it be?” If you haven’t noticed, there are quite a few people who comment on this site wanting a subway system in Miami. My comment about digging further down than six feet is a response to them, not you you a-wipe!

Its been said that a “brain is a terrible thing to waste.” So get some reading comprehension and learn how to use your brain before you get emotional next time.

^^you are replying to MY post azzholeandahalf, which means you are a a-hole for bring up freaking subways when subways are not the topic here or ANYWHERE ELSE in this thread. Get your head out of your rear and learn to effin read. Also better change your attitude before you stumble across someone out in the real world who will gladly change it for you!

Hey rocks for brains, if someone mentions the Metromover and a d**bf**k such as yourself says – “that is hardly a sure thing,” okay then, what is a sure thing according to you?.. the Metrorail?.. a Monorail? Again, you’re full of emotional drab Mr keyboard warrior. This city can’t do what it obviously should be doing because of doubters like you. You should be a part of the people who keep pounding these elected officials a$$e$ to do something that has been already started!

Now miss me with all that “huffing an puffing” you’re doing because you can’t scare a pussycat with that act.

No, the Metromover was built to serve Greater Downtown Miami, meaning the CBD, Brickell, Park West, and A&E District over thirty-five years ago. Anything beyond would require a complete rebuild of the system with larger cars and trains and faster speeds.

miami commissioners and mta officials will find a way to siphon off the funding and the project will take forever..remember how they raised bus fares to fund that non-existent metrorail up 27th ave from coconut grove to football stadium???? remember???

Good luck getting the approvals from our backwards ass government

True, I say in under a decade tops you’ll see many existing parking garages being slowly converted into storage space or anything else that’s more useful than empty parking spots. It’s inevitable as autonomous vehicles take over our transit needs and it simply becomes a waste of money and an inconvenience to personally own one or more vehicles.

damn, that’s actually a great idea and makes a lot of sense now that companies like waymo are automating the driving and we won’t have all those uber drivers taking up the roads

Maybe Elon Musk should look into making tunnels for a future of autonomous vehicles.

Yup, for low earning Miami locals refusing to be priced out, this is the future, multiple families packed into micro units, that way 10 people can split the rent to afford it

Dude, half of my neighbors in Wynwood are basically living that life right now, packing into houses like sardines in a can. I don’t know what’s worse, those hold outs or the 24/7 airbnb party houses in the area. Code enforcement really needs to step it up and start investigating all of this

For real, in Doral the code enforcement is bothering me about one orange tree that I have on my property yet in the urban core they do nothing to stop these people who are basically running communes out of some landlord’s poorly managed property

Smart Miami families buy real estate and the words “priced out” dont mean much.

Property owners get “priced in” to the middle or upper-middle class.

It’s pretty incredible to see all of the development taking place in the urban core. Really makes me wonder if it’s going to have a meaningful affect on curbing the crazy rent growth that tenants are being subject to.,
