a whole new Wynwood

This image appeared in the Biscayne Times, in the Community News section, in reference to the plans for the future Wynwood Arts District. What is particularly shady about this project is that apparently the “community” didn’t know about it. When they asked gallery owners, such as Brooke Dorsch, they said they were unaware of the redevelopment plan. So, who did know about the Wynwood Arts District Proposal? And, what will it mean for the future of the area? One of the goals, according to Tony Goldman, a real estate developer is to keep the “artistic aspect” of the community. But, the only mention of how that will be maintained is through the opening of bars and clubs.
The Biscayne Times also featured this nifty map which shows what they consider to be the Wynwood Arts District. Dorsch’s gallery, by the way, isn’t even included in this zone.
