New 8-story mixed-use project located in Wynwood, which includes 40,000 S.F. of retail, 40,000 S.F. of office space, and a 6-level parking garage that accommodates 428 parking spaces. The design of the façades are the “canvases” for graffiti artists to create their art piece in situ; what Wynwood is known worldwide for. The metal panels can be removed, and the art sold and replaced with new pieces. An open office plan occupies the entire office plate, and an entertainment venue occupies the ground floor.
To minimize construction costs, the garage is constructed of a conventional precast concrete structure with the metal “skin” attached to the concrete structure. Isolation detailing was employed to minimize vibration and sound from the garage into the office/retail spaces. While the skin has penetrations, the garage is mechanically ventilated to comply with codes.
