Project Type: Planning & Zoning
Project Status: Completed
Completion Date: August 2015
Site Area: 273 acres
Client: Wynwood Business Improvement District
The Wynwood NRD enhances pedestrian experiences, promotes diverse housing, and funds open space and centralized parking in a mixed-use, 24-hour neighborhood. The APA award-winning plan preserves unique street art and industrial characteristics while creating a dense, walkable urban development framework with new housing, retail, and open space in an arts district.
It supports creative industries with walkable streets, transit corridors, and green space. The NRD creates more residential development, allowing smaller units to serve millennials and artists with affordable apartments and live-work units. A Transfer of Development Rights program enables warehouse owners to sell the development rights to their buildings – so development pressures do not eliminate legacy structures.
