Architectural Designs, Event Space, Crowdfunding, and Bjarke Ingels
The M Building in Miami’s Wynwood Arts District
Located in the heart of Wynwood, the M Building is a unique event space. Formerly a 1950 manufacturing warehouse, the space is meticulously restored with attention to detail.
Miami officials said the new building will encourage stronger transdisciplinary research for faculty and students and provide a transformative learning experience. It is funded by a $20 million gift from Richard McVey.
1. Designed by Architects Affiniti & Marc Thee
The firm’s projects span across several categories. From urban planning and civic buildings to cultural landmarks, they have a reputation for designing innovative architectural designs that blend indoor and outdoor spaces. Their works have been featured in prominent international exhibitions, and their models are included in the permanent collections of many renowned museums.
Choeff Levy Fischman Architecture + Design is a Miami-based firm that offers a full range of design and architectural services. They specialize in high-end custom Tropical Modern single-family homes, and their clientele includes global C-suite executives and professional athletes.
The McVey Data Science Building is one of the tallest in Miami and Florida, with a total height of 400 feet (122 m). It was designed by New York-based firm Messana O’Rorke (MO’R), and it features a balanced mix of contemporary style and New York history. The building has been praised by its users for its streamlined layout, flexible space, and open-air courtyards.
2. Located in the heart of Coconut Grove
Located in the heart of Coconut Grove, The M Building is a unique event space that offers a wide variety of services. The venue is located in a former manufacturing warehouse and has been impeccably restored with attention to detail. The event space is perfect for weddings, private parties, and corporate events.
Ugo Colombo’s CMC Group is teaming up with Nadim Ashi’s Fort Partners on a Four Seasons-branded tower in Coconut Grove, The Real Deal has learned. The project would rise on the site of the Kaufman Rossin office building, which Colombo’s company bought from Camilo Miguel Jr.’s Mast Capital in 2020.
Art was baked in from the start: a double-height lobby features a playful take on the carved-wood coffered ceilings of the neighborhood’s historic Mediterranean-style mansions, with recesses backed with LumaFilm—a paper-thin membrane containing tiny LEDs that can be refocused to illuminate artworks. And Jorge and Darlene Perez live in one of the tower’s top two floors, surrounded by their collection.
3. A Crowdfunding Campaign
Rilea Group is turning to crowdfunding to capitalize its Mohawk at Wynwood mixed-use project in Miami’s Wynwood Arts District. The developer has qualified the project with RealtyMogul, a crowdfunding company that reviews and approves real estate projects that meet its investment and underwriting criteria and allows its members to invest.
The campaign, which has already raised $11 million, will be combined with equity from high-net-worth investors and debt. Crowdfunding has become an increasingly popular way to raise funds for commercial real estate projects, with companies like RealtyMogul and Fundrise launching crowdfunding campaigns for a variety of properties.
Poirier cited the growing tech scene and talent pool in Miami as motivations for opening an office in the city.

A big-wave surfer turned architect, Ingels has a forceful personality that bucks the composed, overtly cerebral affect of many architectural stars. “He’s a bit of a Warholian figure in architecture—you can see it in the way that he moves,” says curator and author Hans Ulrich Obrist.
Unlike other architects who have gained notoriety for a single signature move (Frank Gehry’s sculptural sweeps, Zaha Hadid’s sinuous curves), Ingels’ work is highly diverse. Yet there’s a unifying element: He always strives to reinvent. That’s why he founded BIG, at age 27, and never settled for a safe career path. His sloping roofs for Google’s new campus, which will double as walking or rolling ramps, and his twisting XI apartment towers on Manhattan’s West Side are a testament to his fearless approach. “He wants to push the envelope as much as possible,” says his colleague at the firm, Julian Schottenstein.
