Wynwood is like no other place in the world. When you walk around this unique cultural destination, you know you are somewhere special. What attracts thousands of people each year to visit one of Miami’s most creative neighborhood is the plethora of compelling street art, the abundance of good food & drink, the extremely popular monthly art walks, and the area’s vibrant atmosphere. However, not only are more & more people continuing to flock to Wynwood on a daily basis, there is also an ongoing surge of new restaurants, hip nightlife venues, and other creative expressions in the area.
Where exactly is Wynwood?
According to Wikipedia, “Wynwood is roughly divided by North 20th Street to the south, I-195 to the north, I-95 to the west and the Florida East Coast Railway to the east.” Basically, Wynwood is located just north of downtown Miami in an area that was once a warehouse and manufacturing district and is divided into two distinct submarkets – the Wynwood Art District in northern Wynwood, and the Wynwood Fashion District along West 5th Avenue. The 29th Street corridor is the main artery of Wynwood and conveniently connects locals to Edgewater, Midtown, the Design District, and beyond.
Why is property in Wynwood in such high demand?
Wynwood is considered to be the epicenter of the art movement in Miami. The area exhibits a hip, fun, and family-friendly vibe that has successfully brought together artists, art galleries like the Rubell Collection, popular local businesses like The LAB Miami and Wyncode, and commercial brands like Ducati and Shinola Detroit. Additionally, there are no traditional office buildings in Wynwood. Rather, the neighborhood is home to more creative office spaces.
With so much investment in the surrounding neighborhoods, Wynwood is transforming from a once-bleak industrial district marked by barbed wire to an outdoor museum in the making. “Available property on Wynwood’s main strip of NW Second Avenue is becoming increasingly hard to come by,” recently reported the Miami New Times.
Obviously, heavy investments in infrastructure and beautification are continuing to pay off. All you need to do is visit the area to witness the evolution. But, does the fact that Wynwood is a popular destination for artists, foodies, tourists, and more, make it an ideal place to run a business?
