The Mana Group’s Special Area Plan, a massive multi-use district that includes 24-story buildings and tallies over 3,400 residential units in Miami’s Wynwood neighborhood, is poised to bring even more jobs to South Florida. The conglomerate just announced in a press release plans to create the Mana Wynwood Americas-Asia Trade Center & International Financial Center (TCIFC), a 10 million square-foot global trade and business hub that will create an estimated 20,000 direct and indirect jobs.
Aiming to leverage Miami’s connection to Pacific trade routes and the many major companies whose Latin American headquarters are in the city, Mana wants the TCIFC to serve as a hub for foreign firms doing business in the Americas. It’s set to include two million square feet of showrooms, over one million square feet of Class-A office space, 75,000 square feet of retail, a 400-key luxury hotel, and 90,000 square feet of open space. The TCIFC should create a big business boost in the neighborhood mostly known for its art scene and colorful murals.
Zyscovich Architects is designing the TCIFC. Mana plans to break ground on the complex in 2018.
