Wernick & Co represents developers in all aspects of the real estate development process. From small warehouse conversions to $200 million Class A large floor plate office buildings, we have worked on some of the most interesting projects in South Florida over the past decade.
Our work includes some of the most transformative and artistic urban redevelopment projects in Miami, including the Wynwood Neighborhood Revitalization District.
Having represented the Wynwood BID in crafting the neighborhood’s zoning overlay district and design review process, Managing Partner Steven J. Wernick understands the big picture policy objectives and application of the NRD-1 zoning to adaptive use and new development in Wynwood. He has spent a significant amount of time cultivating relationships and understanding the evolution of Wynwood to know how each new project adds to the fabric of the neighborhood.
We have represented many of the active developers in Wynwood on more than 1 million square feet of new office, residential, hotel and retail development under construction in the district – including the Wynwood Garage, 250 Wynwood, CUBE WYNWD, Wynwood 25, the Moxy Wynwood and 545 Wyn, and regularly appear to present projects for consideration by the Wynwood Design Review Committee and Urban Development Review Board.
Sterling Bay’s 10-Story Office Building at 545 NW 26th St.
RedSky’s 8-Story Boutique Office Building with Rooftop Terrace.
Goldman Properties’ 8-Story Mixed-Use Garage, with 400+ Spaces, Anchoring NW 3rd Avenue.
Cities are rapidly evolving to embrace shared economy transportation and the density and compact communities that inherently congregate to support transit investments. We help clients with entitlement strategy and utilizing TOD zoning incentives to deliver projects that leverage investments in the transportation infrastructure of the surrounding neighborhood.
Recent projects include securing zoning approvals for redevelopment of the El Eden motel site into a 20+ story Arquitectonica-designed dual-flag
hotel and retail complex and Solitair by ZOM Living, a 50+ multifamily residential building walkable to the Underline and Brickell Station.
The real estate industry has witnessed a surge of capital flowing into Co-living and alternative residential products, particularly in gateway cities like San Francisco, New York and Miami – with transient populations, high land costs, and rising housing costs.
Wernick & Co has been actively working on innovative co-living projects and purpose-built communities throughout Miami’s emerging neighborhoods– representing both developers and operators in navigating the local regulatory environment and community engagement strategies.
