A city of Miami design board approved new plans for Miami Worldcenter, developer Moishe Mana’s micro-living apartment tower, and plans for a new Wynwood apartment building at a meeting on Monday.

Miami Worldcenter developers unveiled a new plan for the project earlier this year, which focuses on the mixed-use development’s retail component. Worldcenter’s retail portion will span five blocks of pedestrian-only promenade, encompassing about 430,000 square feet of retail space instead of the 760,000 square feet originally planned. The centerpiece will be a central plaza, “a gathering place” that can be used for farmers’ markets, outdoor movies, book fairs and concerts, Miami Worldcenter Managing Principal Nitin Motwani told The Real Deal earlier this year.

The board approved the plan, according to the Miami Herald, with conditions that include a landscaping plan and possibly incorporating shops at ground level.

“I applaud the concept, though not necessarily the execution,” architect and board member Willy Bermello said at the meeting, according to the Miami Herald.

The design board was more enthusiastic about Mana Wynwood’s plans for a 49-story, 328-unit apartment tower, the first for developer Moishe Mana in downtown Miami. Board members even praised the project’s lack of parking, the Miami Herald reported. Zyscovich Architects designed the building, which will include a portion of micro units, aimed at millennials. 

The 322,355-square-foot apartment tower would rise on a 14,325-square-foot plot of land in the Flagler Street neighborhood of downtown Miami. It would include 23,295 square feet of residential amenities, a 6,550-square-foot lobby and a leasing office – and no parking, according to the proposal. Mana has spent more than $200 million acquiring land and buildings in downtown Miami, in addition to what he’s amassed in Wynwood.

The Urban Design Review Board also unanimously approved Wynwood 25, a 289-unit, 400,000-square-foot building with 31,000 square feet of ground floor retail and 340 parking spaces. East End Capital is the developer. [Miami Herald] – Katherine Kallergis
