More Hotels Enter Planning Phase for Wynwood
On the heels of F+B Hospitality Leasing's announcement of the Wynwood Triumph Hotel and Office complex another hotel has enter planning stages for the budding Wynwood Arts District.
The Real Deal writes, "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."
Wynwood is already a tourist destination but it continues to show signs of its transformation to a residential neighborhood with local hotel hot spots. Wynwood is the second most walkable neighborhood in Miami according to walkscore.com and begs for more locals to reside within its borders.
This bodes well for restaurants in the area with an increase of weekday traffic promised from these future neighbors.
