Two adaptive reuse projects will head to the Wynwood Design Review Committee on Tuesday, including plans for a new bar and lounge. 

Property owner HJK Holdings Inc. submitted plans for Rabbit’s Foot Lounge, a 4,925-square-foot bar and lounge at 150 Northwest 24th Street in Wynwood.

Angel Febres, a partner at Homecookin’ Hospitality Group, signed the application to redevelop the existing building into a lounge and restore the facade. Homecookin’ also owns and operates the Drunken Dragon restaurant and Foxhole Bar in Miami Beach.

Fortis Lamas Architects is designing Rabbit’s Foot. HJK paid $760,000 for the building in 2005, according to property records.

A second application seeks design board approval for an existing commercial building on Northwest Second Avenue.

The development arm of Goldman Properties will go before the city of Miami for properties at 2219, 2229 and 2235 Northwest Second Avenue. Goldman wants to renovate the buildings, add new facades and green space to what will be a 16,512-square-foot commercial/retail project.

The two one-story commercial buildings are connected by 4,900 square feet of green space, according to the application. Goldman, one of the neighborhood’s largest properties, said it will have Miami artist Troy Simmons paint murals on the building. Once the developer secures Wynwood Design Review Committee approval, it can get a building permit.

Shulman + Associates designed the plans. Records show Goldman Development LLC paid $1.9 million for the buildings in 2006.

Goldman recently broke ground on an eight-story, 428-space parking garage at 2660 Northeast Third Avenue in Wynwood.
