CLIENT NEWS: Wynwood’s Tallest Ever Tower Planned Under Live Local Act

June 6, 2024

Plan’s for Wynwood’s tallest-ever tower have been filed with Miami’s Planning & Zoning reviewers.

For now, the development is known by its address, 2101 NW Miami Ct. It is proposed to rise 48 stories, or 490 feet above ground and 506 feet above sea level, and include:

544 residential units

two floors of amenities on levels 9 and 10

19,292 square feet of ground floor retail

621 on-site parking spaces, spread over six garage levels

The plans were filed under Florida’s Live Local Act. The 2023 law is meant to spur construction of more housing, and allows developers to bypass local zoning restrictions by committing 40% of units to be relatively affordable.

According to a letter from the developer’s attorney, Live Local Act projects are permitted to be built at the highest density that is allowed anywhere in the city, and at the tallest height permitted within one mile of the property.

The greatest density within the City of Miami is 1,000 dwelling units per acre and the tallest height allowed within one mile of the property is 60 stories. The plans call for a building that is shorter and less than dense than those maximums.

Seven zoning waivers are being requested, including two related to parking reduction.

Wynwood Interest LLC, managed by Isaac, Jacobo, Simon, John and Rosa Bazbaz, is listed as the developer. The company had filed plans in 2023 for a 12-story development on the same lot.

Arquitectonica is the architect.

A facade art script on the lower levels is planned by artist Bisco Smith, who is “recognized for his graffiti-deconstructive approach to abstract expressionism.”

The upper levels of the tower are planned to have a frame lighting system.
