Miami Board of Directors Approves Cohabitation in Wynwood, Related’s Little Havana Project
The Miami Urban Development Review Board has approved The Collective Wynwood, a colocation project in Wynwood, and Paseo Del Rio, the associated group’s mixed-use apartment building near Marlins Park in Little Havana.
The Wynwood collective
At its Wednesday meeting, the board approved the Collective, an eight- to twelve-story building with 180 residential units, 70 lodging rooms and 9,508 square feet of retail on the ground floor.
The London-based Collective is proposing to build the project at 2825 Northwest Second Avenue. The units ranged from studios to six-bedroom apartments and would cater to the needs of young professionals, recent college graduates and “lifestyle transitions,” according to the promoter’s proposal.
Designed by Brooklyn Architects, The Collective Wynwood will have accents inspired by natural geological forms that create crevices and changes in the mass of the structure. The design also shows a courtyard, a paseo, 82,000 square feet of shared amenity space, an underground garage, and a rooftop pool.
Shari Neissani, director of development at The Collective’s US office, said the company strives to construct buildings that reflect the character of the neighborhood in which the projects are located.
The Collective operates 1,664 colocation units in six cities in four countries and the company has 19 projects under development.
Paseo del Rio
The review committee also approved the linked group’s plans for a seven-story mixed-income apartment building on lease-related land in Miami-Dade County.
The Paseo del Rio at 1401 Northwest Seventh Street in eastern Little Havana is said to have 182 units, some of which are reserved for affordable housing, said Carly Grimm, an attorney representing Related.
The project is part of a “larger mixed-income affordable housing effort” with the county “that provides high-quality housing to low-income and very-low-income residents, Grimm said.
Designed by Modis Architects, the 329,103 square foot Paseo del Rio will feature 27 studios, 148 one-bedroom apartments and seven two-bedroom apartments, as well as 335 parking spaces.
Modis principal Ivo Fernandez said the project is on a 1.7-acre site that is part of a 22-acre public housing plot owned and operated by Miami-Dade. Last year, Related Group launched a separate but similar project called Brisas del Rio on the same development.
