“O Cinema Wynwood, the non-profit movie theater and art space that opened its doors at 90 NW 29th Street in Feb. 2011, and The Wynwood Yard, the pop-up culinary incubator and event/concert space that took over five vacant lots at 56 NW 29th Street in the fall of 2015, will be permanently closing their doors in the first half of 2019.
In their place will rise Wynwood Green, an 11-story, 189-unit apartment rental building with nearly 17,000 square feet of commercial/retail space and 324 parking spots.
Lennar Multifamily Communities, a division of the Miami-based home building giant Lennar Corp., has submitted plans to the City of Miami for the project, to be built on NW 29th Street between NW First and North Miami Avenues. The project would mark Lennar’s first apartment building within City of Miami limits.
The city’s Urban Development Review Board will assess the proposal on Thursday. The Wynwood Design Review Committee, which evaluates developments to ensure they meet height and density requirements for the neighborhood, will weigh in on Sept. 11.
The project is expected to be approved by both boards.”
