L&L Holding Company and Oak Row Equities Break Ground at The Wynwood Plaza in Miami’s Vibrant Arts District

L&L Holding Company and Oak Row Equities, along with project partner Shorenstein Properties and co-investor Claure Group, today announced the groundbreaking of The Wynwood Plaza, a 1-million-square-foot mixed-use campus at 95 NW 29th Street in Miami’s famed Wynwood Arts District. This milestone comes on the heels of securing $215 million in construction financing from Bank OZK for this dynamic project, designed by renowned architecture firm Gensler.

The Wynwood Plaza will encompass a residential building featuring 509 luxury rental apartments, an array of indoor and outdoor dining and shopping options, as well as a highly-amenitized office tower. The development will be defined by a half-acre, lushly landscaped public plaza that will be the largest in the Wynwood Arts District and one of the largest in all of Miami. Designed by James Corner Field Operations, the landscape architecture and urban design practice behind Miami’s Underline and New York City’s High Line, the most iconic public-facing feature will be a pedestrian paseo adorned with large palm trees and a unique variety of local vegetation.

Two floors of the 12-story office tower are pre-leased. Prominent investment firm Claure Group, led by Marcelo Claure, will establish its headquarters in 25,400 square feet across the entire eighth floor. Weitz & Luxenberg, an acclaimed nationwide law firm, will open its first Miami office in 18,000 square feet across the second floor.

“Recognizing the need to create something of lasting value to Miami, we assembled an all-star team capable of cultivating an environment that is every bit as unique, artistic and sophisticated as the colorful neighborhood that surrounds it,” said David Levinson and Robert Lapidus of L&L Holding Company.  “We are thrilled to share this important moment with our partners Oak Row, Shorenstein, and Claure Group, as well as all of the local stakeholders who made this milestone possible.”

“The groundbreaking at The Wynwood Plaza is a defining milestone for our firm and our partners. This historic project will further enhance the globally-recognized Wynwood Arts District and serve as a bold example of our commitment to placemaking for the local community,” said Erik Rutter and David Weitz, Managing Partners at Oak Row Equities.

“With expectations from commercial tenants and residents alike higher than ever for the places they choose to live and work, we are confident The Wynwood Plaza will stand out and raise the bar,” said Matt Knisely, Managing Director at Shorenstein Properties. “At Shorenstein, we are focused on investing in best-in-class and highly differentiated projects in compelling markets, and this partnership exemplifies our proven approach.”

The Wynwood Plaza’s Class AAA office tower will encompass 266,000 square feet with efficient floor plates that create light-filled workspaces and private terraces on each floor.  Tenants will have access to dedicated indoor and outdoor amenities, including a fitness club, cafe and bar lounge, conference and collaboration spaces, and expansive rooftop. The tower will also feature best-in-class air filtration, touchless entry, and elevator systems. 

Luxury rental apartments will feature floor-to-ceiling windows, state-of-the-art appliances, exceptional finishes, and flexible layouts. An expansive amenity package will feature four activated rooftops with a sports court, two outdoor pools with showers, a sauna, hot tub and cold plunge pool, and a glass atrium with co-working spaces, private phone rooms, and a game lounge. In addition, residents will have access to a modern fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment and dedicated areas for yoga and other exercise classes.

The Wynwood Plaza will also include 32,000 square feet of retail, including 6,600 square feet of outdoor dining. An eclectic mix of lifestyle boutiques, curated storefronts, convenience locations, and fast casual spots are envisioned for the campus. 

Situated on a main pedestrian thoroughfare, the airy, stylish spaces will feature full glass storefronts with the opportunity for impactful exterior signage. To showcase and elevate the creativity of the surrounding community, L&L Holding and Oak Row Equities will collaborate with local artists to include curated works and installations throughout for residents and the community to enjoy.

With construction now underway, completion is anticipated in 2025.
