APEX Capital Realty announced the recent closing of a 30,685-square-foot development site located at 475 NW 36 Street in Miami.
APEX’s COO/Partner Martin Bravo, Vice President Jamie Rose Maniscalco, and Commercial Advisor Thano Mazas represented the seller, C.G.Y. Corp.
The buyer, Evolve Companies, is a development, management, and construction firm focused on multifamily and student housing. With over 1 billion properties under management, Evolve Companies specializes in selecting, developing, and constructing properties all over the U.S. Southeast.
Evolve companies paid $8.975 million for the site.
The firm has now set its sights on Miami and has just recently announced plans for Evolve Wynwood, a 141-unit apartment building that will offer market-rate rentals in the Wynwood neighborhood.
With a determination to grow its footprint in the Wynwood area, Evolve has counted itself among the many developers that have an increased desire for the Wynwood Norte area. Wynwood Norte has served for decades as a working-class, live-work neighborhood for the broader City of Miami. Due to its location within the urban core and close proximity to the Wynwood Arts District, Midtown, and Downtown Miami, developers are working at an accelerated pace to acquire properties in the area as it is now seen as the next great area for development.
475 NW 36 Street is located within the Wynwood Norte neighborhood and falls within the NRD-2 (Neighborhood Revitalization District-2) zoning overlay. The newly implemented overlay allows for additional benefits over the T6-8-O zoning including the transfer of development rights to increase density.
The site also offers access to fast-growing neighborhoods including Midtown Miami, The Miami Design District, Allapattah, Edgewater and Downtown Miami. With maximum exposure, the property is situated in an ideal location and offers a great opportunity to develop a project which will undoubtedly bring great success.
