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.

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.

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.
Wernick & Co has successfully represented developers on TOD projects in Miami, including the 22-story dual-branded AC Hotel & Element Miami Brickell and 50+ story Solitair by ZOM Living, both within walking distance of The Underline and Brickell Metrorail Station.
Affordable / Workforce Housing
Affordable Housing is increasingly a major area of focus in South Florida, given the rising housing costs and shortage of housing supply close to transit and major employment areas.
Wernick & Co has experience shepherding affordable and workforce housing projects through the local government approval process, including securing zoning approvals and economic incentives in the form of grants and CRA TIF Financing.
The Firm is currently working on Wynwood Works, a 120-unit mixed-income apartment building being developed by Magellan Housing in partnership with the Omni Community Redevelopment Agency.
