Coming Soon: Mana’s Special Area Plan For Wynwood

Moshe Mana will soon submit a Special Area Plan for about 30 acres that he owns in Wynwood, his architect told a Miami board yesterday.

Bernard Zyscovich said that the plan would be commercial oriented, include assembly space, and create jobs. It will be submitted for review in two or three months, he said.

Just a handful of Special Area Plan’s have been approved in Miami, thanks to a nine-acre minimum requirement.

Zyscovich said that he wanted to assure the board that Mana’s Special Area Plan wasn’t an attempt to circumvent new Wynwood zoning rules that were being voted on, including the Mana Wynwood property. Board members quickly cut Zyscovich off and told him that his concerns weren’t relevant to the proceedings.

Another planning firm, Plusurbia Design, is also working for Mana. Plusurbia helped to draft the new zoning rules for Wynwood.

The board unanimously approved the zoning changes and Neighborhood Revitalization District for Wynwood. The full city commission will also need to approve the plan.
