Project Type: Neighborhood Revitalization
Project Status: Completed | September 2019
Site Area: 207 acres
Team: PlusUrbia Design + C-Street Collaborative
Client: Wynwood Community Enhancement Association (WCEA)
Faced with development pressure from Wynwood Business District to the south, Midtown to the east and Design District to the north, the Wynwood Norte Neighborhood is at risk of being re-developed without a clear holistic vision where the current identity and strengths of a historically cohesive community may be lost. This, in turn, may affect the future livability of its current neighbors and future residents.
This plan recognizes and addresses residents' fear to keep their homes by introducing measures to mitigate displacement and improve affordability.
Strategies are identified to help residents reinvest in existing homes and to provide residents with expanded and better-quality housing options within the neighborhood.
Calibration of both planning and zoning is paramount to maximize the neighborhood’s assets and provide guidance for future development. This community-led Master Planning exercise provides a survey of the existing neighborhood, its character, existing conditions and presents a comprehensive Vision Plan integrating what residents, business owners, community leaders, and stakeholders of Wynwood Norte want to see in their community with best planning practices.
The study area is bound by the I-195 to the North and West, NW 29th street (Wynwood Business District) to the South and North Miami Avenue (Midtown) to the East.
