More hotels are planned for Wynwood, as the artsy district continues to transform into a residential neighborhood.

Fresh off their multimillion-dollar Sunset Harbour sale, Miami Beach developer and former gubernatorial candidate Philip Levine and his real estate partner Scott Robins filed plans with the city of Miami for a residential and hotel project in Wynwood.

Levine submitted a permit for a 119,331-square-foot hotel and residential development at 35 Northwest 27th Street in Miami, according to the city’s building department. The project would have about 90 hotel rooms and 92 multifamily units, Robins confirmed.

On 27th Street between Northwest First Avenue and North Miami Avenue, Levine’s Baron Wynwood entities own six contiguous lots totaling 39,550 square feet, at 35, 49, 63, 65, 73 and 83 Northwest 27th Street. Property records show the companies spent $2.13 million assembling the site between 2012 and 2014.

If the project moves forward, Robins estimated that it would break ground within a year or so. The developers hired Morris Adjmi Architects, a New York City-based architecture and interior design firm, to design the building. The construction cost is in the mid $20 million range, Robins said.

Two other hotels have been proposed in the trendy neighborhood: Alex Karakhanian and Wynwood Investment Partners are planning a 12-story hotel with office and retail at 51 Northwest 29th Street; and a company controlled by Miami Beach broker Robert Ziehm also filed for a building permit for an eight-story, 95-room hotel at 51 and 45 Northwest 28th Street in late 2017.

Levine and Robins’ project would be built in northeast Wynwood, around the corner from Jimmy’z Kitchen. Robins said the project is in the “early, early planning stages,” but confirmed that the developer is in talks with “various hotel flags.”

Levine lost the Aug. 28 Democratic primary to Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, who’s running against Ron DeSantis for governor of Florida in November.

Together, Robins and Levine sold a major retail portfolio they had developed in Miami Beach’s Sunset Harbour neighborhood in July for nearly $69 million to Asana Partners, a Charlotte, North Carolina-based real estate investment firm.
