The former home of the Art by God taxidermy and fossil store in the Wynwood Arts District area of Miami could be demolished to build a mixed-use project.
The Wynwood Design Review Committee will consider plans for Wynwood Urby on April 12. It would be located on the 1.29-acre site at 26-60 N.E. 27th St. and 61 N.E. 26th St.
The property, which has a 13,622-square-foot building that once housed Art by God, was acquired for $15.6 million in 2021 by 26 60 NE 27th Street LLC, a partnership between Hoboken, New Jersey-based Ironstate Development Group and New York-based Brookfield Properties.
Ironstate and Brookfield have teamed to build about 3,000 condos under the Urby name in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut since 2016, said Steven Wernick, the Miami attorney who represents the developer in the application. This would be their first Urby project in Florida.
Wynwood Urby would total 371,632 square feet in eight stories, with 289 residential units, 17,238 square feet of commercial space, and 197 parking spaces, including 40 for electric vehicles. There would be a fitness center on the third floor and a rooftop amenity deck including a pool, grilling stations and a garden room.
Units in Wynwood Urby would range from 443 to 893 square feet.
