The Gateway at Wynwood is a mix-use building project located in Wynwood Arts
District in Miami, Florida. The neighborhood, formerly known as an industrial
warehouse area has dramatically changed over the last ten years, from
abandoned warehouses to hip artist studios, restaurants, cafes, late-night lounges

sits on North Miami Avenue, a major thoroughfare that connects it to Midtown, a
new development two blocks North with many new residential buildings.
