“i5 Wynwood represents a bold and forward-thinking approach to addressing the growing demand for urban living spaces in Miami, where rising housing costs have posed challenges for many residents,” said Chief Investment Officer of W5 Group, Raphael Sidelsky. “This unique co-living concept is designed to provide a vibrant, community-focused living environment that offers affordability without compromising on quality. W5 Group invests in cutting-edge, affordable, and community-oriented residential projects that provide exceptional amenities, design, technology and energy efficiency for residents. That’s exactly what i5 Wynwood delivers. We conceived of and helped design these highly efficient units based on our experience with micro-units, student living, multifamily and co-living projects in other similar dynamic urban environments.”
Located at 51 NW 28th Street, in the heart of Miami’s trendsetting Wynwood neighborhood, the nine-story i5 Wynwood offers residents accessible housing options with unmatched access to award-winning restaurants, bars and trendy boutiques as well as the rich assortment of art galleries, studios and exhibition spaces for which the area is known.

With architecture by world-renowned Arquitectonica and interiors by Miami-based designer Michael Wolk, the name behind the famous Porsche Design Tower and St. Regis Resort Bal Harbour, i5 Wynwood offers a high-design lifestyle at an unmatched price. Throughout the building’s interiors, Wolk sought to embrace the artistic spirit of the Wynwood neighborhood by creating a fresh, colorful take on the mid-century modern style. Bold colors and patterns compliment furniture rooted in functionality, clean lines and simplicity.
The vision for i5 Wynwood goes beyond traditional co-living developments by offering a curated amenity package on par with Related’s and W5 Group’s other award-winning communities.
