Updated, 9:15 a.m., Sept. 12: The Wynwood Design Review Committee will review plans for two mixed-use, residential-focused projects by the Related Group and Thor Equities on Tuesday.

Related and Metro 1 Development, led by Tony Cho, submitted plans to the board for a 12-story, residential, retail and office building on a 1.215-acre site it owns at 2828 Northwest First Avenue. Designed by Arquitectonica, the project has four stories and 26,600 square feet of office space, 11 floors and 182 units of residential, nearly 20,000 square feet of retail space and a five-story parking garage.

Co-developers Related and Metro 1 are asking the design board for additional lot coverage, to extend the parking struction, a 10 percent increase in the maximum lot area, and a parking decrease of 30 percent. The requested parking reduction would bring the minimum number of spaces down from 376 to 236.

Related assembled the land in 2014, property records show.

The design review committee, which will meet on Tuesday, will also review plans for the Wynwood Plant, a Thor project at 286 Northwest 29th Street.

Thor Weck Owner LLC also wants to build a 12-story, mixed-use residential building. Plans filed with the city show the project would have 306 residential units, nearly 67,000 square feet of retail space, and 673 parking spaces.

The New York-based developer is seeking a 10 percent increase in lot coverage, addition of service entries, a cross-block pedestrian paseo and a floorplate area increase. The development would take up 2 acres of property that includes 252, 268 and 286 Northwest 29th Street and 2801 Northwest Third Avenue. New York-based Thor Equities paid $29 million for nearly the entire block last year. The site currently houses vacant warehouses.

Both are seeking LEED Silver certification and will have bicycle parking.

A number of similarly designed new projects have been proposed as a result of Wynwood’s massive upzoning. Earlier this summer, Related and Block Capital Group submitted their plans for Wynwood 26, a mixed-use apartment building at 51 Northwest 26th Street.
