Building Area: 199,357 SF
Building Status: Unbuilt
This project is composed of two different buildings – one hospitality for the new Shepherd Eco brand of boutique hotels and the other a residential building component which sits on 2 levels of enclosed parking. The project also includes ground floor commercial space along NE 27th Street. There is also an expansive outdoor rooftop garden on the 4th Story with access directly from the residential units. The Boutique Hotel will provide great views of downtown Miami and Biscayne Bay to the east and the heart of Wynwood Arts District to the west. The ground floor contains a small retail/F&B space and a mezzanine art gallery to bring back art programming into the District.
Shepherd Eco will include several resiliency initiatives- such as storm water gardens, community farming on the roof and cisterns for collecting water. This project is also focused on connecting people to the dynamic and artistic neighborhood of Wynwood. The Project features a cross Block Pedestrian Paseo on the west side of the Property – providing access for pedestrians and intersecting with a sizeable landscaped green space which is envisioned as a neighborhood amenity for residents and hotel guests and local artists who might want a creative environment to create or share community events.
