Curbed Miami - April 5, 2016
Miami’s mega-development scene continues to roar.
Within Mana Group’s enormous Special Area Plan in Wynwood that has been in the works for years is the introduction of the MANA Wynwood Americas-Asia Trade Center & International Financial Center (TCIFC), according to a press release.
Encompassing over 10 million square feet, TCIFC would serve as the hub for all trade and business between Asia, Latin America, North America, and the Caribbean. It is expected to create 20,000 direct and indirect jobs in South Florida.
TCIFC includes up to 2 million square feet of showrooms, over 1 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.
It’s “a legacy project,” according to Mana Group Chairman Moishe Mana, and was designed by Zyscovich Architects.
"It has been six years since we started incubating this vision from the great assemblage job of this massive valuable property, all the way through achieving the SAP approval,” he said. "Lots of work has been done in Asia and South America in order in order to make this project possible. We are ready to move forward.
“Our purpose is to take Miami from it’s historic role as a tourist destination to it’s next chapter. Our goal is to make Miami a global trading business hub servicing all industries and trades on an interactive basis."
