The Daily Business Review Reports on the Future of Wynwood

The Daily Business Review has just released a great article about Wynwood, featuring a glowing quote regarding David Lombardi’s contribution to the Arts District.

“Dave made the city of Miami pave the streets, paint the buildings and get security,” Fried said. “He was the entrepreneur … the one who sat there and bled. He created the canvas that [Goldman Properties] is painting on.”

The legacy of late developer Tony Goldman is taking shape in Wynwood, as his company is about to add offices, retail and apartments to the former warehouse district north of downtown Miami.

In Goldman’s eye, each street in Wynwood was to play a specific role in the area’s redevelopment. He had amassed a significant number of properties there in the last decade.

Goldman died Sept. 11 of heart failure. He was 68 years old.

This month, Goldman Properties, Wynwood’s largest property owner, plans to start construction in the “adaptive re-use” of two aging warehouses along Northwest 26th Street. That street would connect Northwest Second Avenue, the heart of the district, to sleepy Fifth Avenue.

“It was always Tony’s desire that 26th Street be like the Eight Street of the South Beach endeavor,” said Marlo Courtney, Goldman Properties’ managing director.
