Metro 1 Introduces Luxury Retail Complex to Wynwood
Some of Miami’s most prominent political and community leaders came together on Wednesday to celebrate real estate development firms Metro 1’s opening of the Wynwood Gateway Complex. Tony Cho, president of the forward-thinking, full-service firm, cut the ribbon for the inauguration amidst a crowd that included the city of Miami Mayor, Tomas Regalado, the City of Miami Commissioner Marc Sarnoff and House 100-lister Michal Simkins.
With longstanding roots in Wynwood, it is only natural that Metro has chosen this trendy neighborhood to focus its efforts toward smart and sustainable urban growth. The firm selected Audi-owned, Italian motorcycle dealership Ducati as the retail complex’s flagship tenant, thus making it the first international luxury brand to call Wynwood home.
During the event, Metro 1 also unveiled plans for a public competition to design a park inside the complex. Also included in the potential plans for the complex – which is located on the corner of Northwest 29th St and Second Ave – are regional, national, and international restaurant chains, as well as big-name companies like facebook.
