Moishe Mana’s revised plan for a massive mixed-use development in Miami’s Wynwood area won approval from a city-chartered agency representing land owners in the area.

The Miami City Commission  may consider preliminary approval of the proposed development on Thursday, if Mana does not ask the commissioners to postpone their vote.

The Wynwood Business Improvement District (BID) voted Wednesday to approve Mana’s revised development plan after he made concessions that include moving the location of two residential buildings as tall as 24 stories from Northeast 2 Avenue to sites farther west.

BID approved the proposed development, known as the Mana Special Area Plan, to build approximately nine million square feet of buildings on about 24 acres of land in the Wynwood area. The main street through Mana’s 24-acre assemblage is Northeast 2 Avenue.

Mana agreed to support an expansion of the Wynwood Business Improvement District to include his 24-acre development site, but he didn’t make a commitment to pay the district’s levy on land owners for such services as garbage removal and security.

But the BID would negotiate the terms of Mana’s participation in the Wynwood district if the city commission votes to grant preliminary approval to the Mana Special Area Plan during the proposal’s first reading on Thursday. [Miami Herald] — Mike Seemuth
