Co-investor Claure Group is establishing its headquarters at The Wynwood Plaza.
L&L Holding Co. and Oak Row Equities have commenced construction on The Wynwood Plaza, a 1 million-square-foot mixed-use development in Miami. The companies have teamed up with co-investor Claure Group and project partner Shorenstein Properties to develop the campus, which is expected to be completed in 2025.
The groundbreaking comes shortly after the team, assisted by Newmark, received a $215 million construction loan from Bank OZK. Designed by Gensler, The Wynwood Plaza will include a residential building, an office tower and multiple indoor and outdoor retail and dining spaces.
