A City of Miami board has allowed a developer in Wynwood to construct the densest building in the burgeoning neighborhood.

The Planning, Zoning and Appeals Board voted 7-1 in favor of developer Wynwood 250’s request for a zoning change giving it the ability to build one or more eight-story structures and up to 80 apartment units on a half-acre property on Northwest 24th Street, Daily Business Review reported. City staff had recommended a denial of the request. Wynwood 250, a partnership between David Polinsky and Bradley Carlson, previously announced plans to construct a six-story, 11-unit luxury condo building on about half of the property.

“What’s happening in Wynwood right now is exciting, but it’s been limited to adaptive re-use so far,” said attorney Steve Wernick, who represents Wynwood 250.
