Wynwood Yard Now Closed, Construction Permit For 11-Story Apartment Building Applied For

Wynwood Yard closed yesterday.

It will soon be demolished.

Developer Lennar is planning to replace the venue with an 11-story apartment building called Wynwood Green, and has already purchased the property.

A construction permit to begin work was applied for at Miami’s Building department in April. The permit states that the project will include:

  • 11-story, 146-foot building height
  • 189 apartment units
  • 15,800 square feet of retail

Total estimated construction cost is $38 million.

Last week, the FAA granted approval to install two tower cranes at the site to assist in construction. They will rise 257 feet above ground.

Dorsky + Yue is the architect of the new apartment building.

Please.. you’re comparing Wynwood Yards to much needed apartments for this area?

The transformation of this spot to an apartment building will do greater things for the community.

Agreed -This is a good project for the area. The yard patrons apparently don’t like it.

Yeah.. if the article would’ve said that someone is turning Wynwood Yard into a park, a lot of those same patrons would be praising that.

Compared to some of the clubs and bars we’ve seen that closed down, you’re right.

Um, why.. red tape over a measly 257ft?

Does the FAA run this city?

I think it’s a good trade off. Now we get a 5 level parking garage and a 5 level apartment building.

I love how they rendered the old midtown Walmart lot as an open green space. Something they should just go ahead and do for the time being.
