Development of a “living street” consisting of street trees and other streetscape improvements to the Wynwood neighborhood. Some of the goals of the project are to strengthen neighborhood identity, foster resiliency, and improve the pedestrian experience.

Supporting documents and presentation materials will be added soon.

Wynwood Streetscape Master Plan Scope

Arquitectonica GEO will create a Wynwood Streetscape and Street Tree Master Plan. This document is necessary to develop the Streetscape and Street Tree Master Plan identified within the adopted Neighborhood Revitalization District (NRD)-1 ordinance. The overall goal of Arquitectonica GEO is to work with the City and community to develop a blueprint for a “living street” consisting of street trees and other streetscape improvements to the Wynwood Neighborhood. GEO will create a Streetscape and Street Tree Master Plan that takes into consideration the following:

  • Strengthening sense of place, neighborhood identity, and aesthetics through the identification of strategic tree species and planting locations at gateways and along thoroughfares. This will enhance the identity of the Wynwood District along major corridors and;
  • Development of guidelines and opportunities for public landscaping experiences in the right-of-way which interact with the surrounding art on private property, without conflicting or obstructing visibility of art applied to building exteriors;
  • Building the community’s resilience to the impacts of climate change through tree canopy to reduce the heat island effect, and reintroduce native plant species;
  • Maintaining and enhancing the quality of the air, water and land through a mature tree canopy’s ability to sequester carbon and release oxygen;
  • Promoting Green Infrastructure opportunities to mitigate urban stormwater runoff throughout the District;
  • Promoting and encouraging actions that reduce greenhouse gas emissions through the creation of attractive and comfortable pedestrian and cycling routes to encourage the use of alternate modes of transportation;
  • Improving the pedestrian experience with appropriate street furniture, trash receptacles, street lighting and other streetscape features;
  • Using the adopted Wynwood NRD-1 Street Master Plan as a guiding document for Right-Of-Way standards for existing conditions;
  • Coordinating streetscape improvements with the MANA Wynwood Special Area Plan (SAP) proposal located on the southwest boundary of Wynwood NRD-1;
  • Developing minimum planting standards above and beyond those in Miami 21, and industry best practices for planting treatment, irrigation, suspended pavement systems, etc…;
  • Developing specific standards for enhancement of transit stops and transit enhancements; and
  • Encouraging integration of surrounding neighborhoods with specific design interventions.
