Stantec-Designed Strata Wynwood Mixed-Use Development Completed in Miami’s Wynwood Arts District

MIAMI, FL — The new Strata Wynwood mixed-use residential building, designed by global firm Stantec, is the newest addition to the Wynwood Arts District in Miami. The project includes 257 residential units, artist studios, three floors of office space, street-level retail, and 474 parking spaces. Stantec provided building architecture and landscape architecture as well as structural engineering services for the development.

“From the onset, we endeavored to design a building that facilitates the life and vitality of the community. We believe that Wynwood’s human cultural resource has shaped the community and thus it was necessary for Strata’s design to connect and be shaped by its inhabitants,” said Andrew Burnett, Senior Principal for Stantec’s Miami studio. “Ultimately, this collaborative approach yielded a space that intersects seamlessly with the neighborhood.”

Art for Beauty and Function
A portion of the building’s façade is surrounded by large vertical screened panels portraying artwork by local artists that enhance the pedestrian experience and connect to the Wynwood community. The panels not only serve as an aesthetically pleasing design component but also conceal the parking garage and provide natural ventilation for the space, thus reducing energy costs.

Curving around the building between the window glass panels, protruding vertical fins display additional colorful works of art. The largest of the artist panels measuring 56 feet tall is situated at the entrance of a paseo, which is landscaped with numerous sculptures and connects pedestrians from North Miami Avenue to an internal street and a series of artist studios along the FEC Railway.

Luxury Living Indoors and Out
The development has eight stories of residential units, including studios, one-, two-, and three-bedrooms ranging in size from 509 to 1,288 square feet, set above the four-story retail, office, and parking structure. The towers’ exterior has vertical painted scored stucco sections and metal mesh balconies on the units, offering a modern urban aesthetic and point of design distinction for the neighborhood.

The level-five amenity deck is landscaped with palm trees and foliage and features a pool, open-air movie theater and lounge, and outdoor bar with a fire pit. The amenity deck also features a 7,000-square-foot Legacy fitness and health facility. Other amenities designed in collaboration with Unison Group, the project’s interior designer, include steam rooms, demonstration kitchen, clubroom, game room, plus collaborative and private workspaces, business center, and conference rooms, as well as a soundproof room for music and voice training. Pet-friendly amenities include a dog wash and dog run on the ground floor.

The development features a ground-level curtain wall system with translucent windows and attractive sidewalk landscaping that draws pedestrians to the retail and restaurant spaces. The project also has 2,500 square feet of space for artists to work and display their pieces as well as 60,300 square feet of office space and five levels of parking.
