10 little units making a home in eclectic and artsy Wynwood.
We’re raising $300,000 for a new ground-up three-story building, to be built at 3041 NW 5th Avenue in Wynwood, Florida. The building will be approximately 9,585 square feet in size, with ten fully furnished rental units averaging 625 s.f. in size. The building will be operated as a B2B short term rental and will be used primarily for corporate short-stay accomodations.
Wynwood Manager, LLC, (the “Company”) is raising the equity while the building (the “Project”) will be developed and owned by Wynwood Five, LLC (“Wynwood Five” or the “Project Entity”). The Company will own an interest in the Project Entity and also act as its designated managing member. The operating agreement for Wynwood Five is attached as Exhibit G.
The Project is designed as a building with two modules, separated by a central circulation area which will provide access to the rooftop. The ground floor is expected to contain: 4 units, each 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom and the second floor is expected to contain 6 duplex units each with 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. In addition plans include 4 parking spaces, a shared office space and a rooftop common area. Rent is expected to range from $1,500 to $2,700 per month. Total project cost is expected to be approximately $3,108,440 and will be financed through a construction loan, owner equity and the funds raised through this offering.
The Project is located just a block from the Wynwood Business Improvement District (BID). The BID manages the 50-city-block Wynwood Arts District through the oversight of a municipal board of the City of Miami representing more than 400 property owners. You’ll find more detail about Wynwood in About the Market.
The Project is planned to have a total of 10 units, totaling 6,254 leasable square feet, and with the following unit mix:
- Two Type A studio units averaging 376 square feet;
- Two Type B one-bedroom, one-bath units averaging 478 square feet;
- Four Type C two-bedroom, one-bath units, averaging 773 square feet; and
- Two Type D two-bedroom, one-bath units, averaging 727 square feet.
The units are designed to feature modern architectural details with designer finishes throughout, including high-quality fixtures, nine foot ceilings, private patios and balconies, programmable thermostats for energy management, stainless steel appliances, under-mount kitchen sinks, European cabinets and quartz countertops. All units will be furnished.
In addition, the building plans include a shared office space on the ground floor and a rooftop accessible to all tenants, with outdoor kitchen and furniture with sufficient open space for fitness or other recreational activities.
The project architect is SD Collaborative, a full-service architectural firm headquartered in Miami. With licenses in Florida and ten other States, Primi Conde, the owner of SD Collaborative, has 31 years of experience as an architect, leading architectural and engineering teams on a wide range of projects including corporate offices, residential and mixed use projects, resorts, cruise terminal structures, and more in both domestic and international markets.

The Project is located in the Wynwood neighborhood of Miami, Florida, just one block from the Wynwood Business Improvement District (BID), north of Downtown Miami and next to the Edgewater district. It is a short fifteen-minute drive to Miami International Airport and a nine-minute drive to the new Virgin Miami Central Rail Station, the new hub for all things transportation, leisure, and business. Future plans for the Tri-Rail Downtown Miami Link and the new Brightline intercity express train, propose new station locations at Wynwood/Midtown, providing even better transportation options in the future.
Wynwood is divided into two discrete areas; the Wynwood Fashion District which runs along West 5th Avenue and the Wynwood Arts District, which is home to over 70 galleries, museums and collections that has become one of the largest open-air street art installations in the world.
Over the last 5 years, approximately 3,900,000 square feet of improved building area has been added to the district. This development activity is the result of a change in zoning that was implemented in 2015. Key leadership created a Neighborhood Revitalization District Plan (NRD) with the goal of creating an internationally recognized center for arts, innovation and culture. The NRD sets forth new zoning regulations for Wynwood that encourage more density, and new developments focused on mixed use, neighborhood improvements, pedestrian friendly streets and preservation of the historic industrial character of the neighborhood.
Wynwood has emerged as a redevelopment hub with increased investments and new development projects ranging in a variety of uses, from office to retail, recreational, residential and transit oriented. This once neglected and shuttered warehouse and manufacturing district is being transformed into a vibrant neighborhood of art complexes, galleries, performing art spaces, restaurants, cafes, lounges, and other creative businesses. Silicon Valley companies are setting down roots in Wynwood as well, according to The Real Deal Silicon. According to a Wynwood market report presented by Integra Realty Resources, new and improved building area is projected to increase by an additional 35% to around 5.3 million square feet in the next 5 years.
The multi-family market inside the Wynwood BID district is quite limited. Existing stock consists of 403 units in low-density Class C buildings dating back to the 1950's and 1960’s. Residential inventory is on the rise since 2015, with the addition of 464 new units. There are an additional 612 units in planning with 189 of them expected to be completed before the end of 2020.

- Proximity to a scene. Adjacent to Miami’s Wynwood Arts District.
- A cultural hub. Galleries, museums and open-air art installations.
- Good transit. Plenty of transportation options nearby.
- Density encouraged. New zoning regulations that encourage density and mixed use.
- A redevelopment hub. Lots of development underway nearby.
- Supports the big picture. Part of a comprehensive neighborhood plan.
The Company is engaged in two simultaneous offerings of its securities:
- An offering under Regulation CF (where anyone can invest), which we refer to as the “Reg CF Offering”; and
- An offering under SEC Rule 506(c) (where only “accredited Investors” can invest), which we refer to as the “Reg D Offering.”
We plan to use the proceeds of the two offerings, together with a loan from a bank, to invest in a real estate project to build a three-story building, approximately 9,585 s.f. in size, with ten fully furnished rental units at 3041 NW 5th Avenue in Wynwood, Florida.
We are trying to raise a maximum of $300,000 but we will move forward with the Project and use investor funds if we are able to raise at least $150,000 (the “Minimum Goal”). If we have not raised at least the Minimum Goal by 11:59 pm on January 31, 2021, EST, (the “Target Date”), we will terminate the Offering and return 100% of their money to anyone who has subscribed.
In an offering under Regulation CF the issuer is required to state a “Target Amount,” meaning the minimum amount the issuer will raise in the Regulation CF offering to complete the offering. For the reason just described, our Target Amount for the Reg CF Offering is $1,000. It doesn’t matter how much is raised in the Reg CF Offering and how much is raised in the Reg D Offering. Thus, if we raise $1,000 in the Reg CF Offering and at least $149,000 in the Reg D Offering we will proceed, and vice versa.
If you are investing in the Reg CF offering, the minimum you can invest is $200. Investments above $200 may be made in $200 increments (e.g., $400 or $600 but not $336). An investor may cancel his or her commitment up until 11:59 pm on January, 29, 2021 (i.e., two days before the Target Date). If we have raised at least the Minimum Goal we might decide to accept the funds and admit investors to the Company before the Target Date; in that case we will notify you and give you the right to cancel.
If you are investing in the Reg D offering, the minimum you can invest is $3,000. Investments above $3,000 may be made in $200 increments (e.g., $3,200 or $3,400 but not $3,336). When we have raised the Minimum Goal we plan to accept the funds invested through the Reg D offering and admit the Reg D investors to the Company.
The SEC is considering other changes to Reg CF, in addition to raising the maximum offering amount. Where applicable, we will reference possible changes in the applicable sections of this Form C.
Total acquisition and development costs of approximately $3,108,440 million will be financed with a $2,117,911 million construction loan, $503,284 in owner equity and the $300,000 in equity raised through this Offering. In addition developer fees of approximately $187,244 will be deferred until the Project is refinanced or sold. Approximately two years after construction has been completed, Wynwood Five expects to repay both the equity raised and the construction loan with a permanent loan of approximately $2,456,011 million or through the sale of the property. At this time any outstanding balance of Investor member equity and returns will be paid, if the cash is available.
The financing assumptions to purchase and develop the project are as follows:
|Total expected project costs||$3,108,440|
|Construction loan||68.13% of project cost||$2,117,911|
|Owner equity||16.20% of project cost||$503,284|
|Small Change equity||9.66% of project cost||$300,000|
|Developer deferred fees||6.00% of project cost||$187,244|
|Total expected sources||$3,108,440|

Under the Company’s LLC agreement, the Company will make distributions to its owners quarterly, starting at the end of the first quarter after this Offering closes. The source of the distribution is immaterial. Instead, all distributions will be made in the following order of priority:
- First, the Available Cash shall be distributed to the Investor Members until they have received their Preferred Return for the current year.
- Second, the balance of the Available Cash, if any, shall be distributed to the Investor Members until they have received any shortfall in the Preferred Return for any prior year.
- Third, the balance of the Available Cash, if any, shall be distributed to the Investor Members until they have received a full return of their Unreturned Investment.
- Fourth, the balance of the Available Cash, if any, shall be distributed to the Sponsor as a promoted interest.
Each Investor will receive an annual preferred return of 8% on their investment, which will accumulate but not be compounded starting on the date the investment is made. The Company plans to sell or refinance the property approximately 2 years after construction is completed and expects the sale price of the property at that time to be approximatetly $4,000,000.
If the Project does not move forward for any reason, the Company plans to sell the property and return the funds invested. The current value of the property is estimated to be $470,000 as compared to similar-sized lots sold near the Project property over the last 20 months.
|Address||Lot size s.f.||Sale date||Sales price||Per s.f.|
|175 NW 31 Street||7,150||June 2020||$453,800||$63|
|267 NW 33 Street||5,000||Sept 2019||$310,000||$62|
|227 NW 33 Street||5,000||July 2019||$375,000||$75|
|435 NW 34 Street||7,000||Nov 2019||$470,000||$67|
|3327 NW 3 Ave||6,511||Oct 2018||$415,000||$64|

The declaration of COVID-19 by the World Health Organization (WHO) on March 11, 2020 as a worldwide pandemic has created considerable uncertainty in the worldwide financial markets. Unemployment rates in the US have reached levels as never seen before and concerns about the ongoing spread of the COVID-19 have impacted the normal operations of the vast majority of businesses at every level.
The real estate market has not seen yet a significant negative impact due to COVID-19 with the evident temporary exception of the retail market. However, a prolonged outbreak could have a significant (and yet incalculable) impact on other real estate sectors, considering that the value of real estate assets as any other business type are dependent on the cash flow it generates.
Given the degree of overall uncertainty present in the economy, forecasts and projections contained herein may change dramatically. Even though our project completion date is expected to be in summer 2022 a prolonged outbreak of COVID-19 could slow down the rental rates growth having a direct impact on our projected cash flow.
