The special area plan (SAP), known as “Mana Wynwood, ” runs from Northwest 22nd Street to Northwest 24th Street between Interstate 95 and Northwest 2nd Ave. This former free trade zone is in the middle of a neighborhood that’s been transformed from a manufacturing hub to a destination for art, restaurants and shopping.

The building designed to accommodate commercial, hotel, retail, industrial and manufacturing uses with live-work options. It will foster a naturally evolving urban composition in which artistic and creative innovation along with international trade can thrive.
The concept is to invigorate the interests of South American and Asian business and trade within a neighborhood of arts and culture at the western end of the development.
Mana Wynwood will serve as a nexus for traditional mom-and-pop shops, technical start-ups, creative class professionals, as well as media and technology hubs, and large retail establishments.
Central to the plan is “Mana Commons, ” a public open square which contain areas designed to support special events like Art Basel and the popular Wynwood Art Walk.
Expansive underground parking and dispersed surface lots will create a more walkable, bicycle friendly and lively district. The area will also include plazas for open-air retail, courtyards and pocket parks.
“Neighborhoods that were once disconnected from the street grid when the warehouses were originally built will be woven back into the city fabric, ” said Bernard Zyscovich, “Mana Wynwood’s new area plan also calls for the development of taller, mixed-use buildings near the edge of the I-95 Expressway to create a buff er zone between the elevated highway and the adjacent neighborhood.”
