THE NEXT MIAMI: Commissioners To Vote On ‘Visionary’ Wynwood Norte Upzoning

Published on

Miami commissioners are scheduled to vote this week on upzoning an area called Wynwood Norte.
It is the second and final commission vote, after it unanimously passed a first reading in October. The second reading vote is scheduled for February 25.
The Wynwood Norte Neighborhood Revitalization District is being created at the request of residents of the area who want to better control gentrification, according to an October article in the Herald.
The plan for Wynwood Norte includes:

  • Increasing zoning density with up to 9,000 more residential units than currently allowed (the current population of the area is around 4,000)
  • Requiring a 10 percent set aside for affordable housing in exchange for the increased density
  • Developers would also fund shade trees, sidewalks, lighting, in addition to affordable housing
  • Forbidding demolition unless a new construction permit has been issued
  • Rules to discourage lot assemblages, and encourage smaller scale development

The area encompasses 140 acres, or around 29 city blocks.
Plusurbia Design created the plan.
