Apply for a Certificate of Transfer in Wynwood NRD-1

Are you buying or selling density in the NRD-1 boundary? If so, you need to be approved for a Certificate of Transfer as part of the Wynwood Transfer of Development Density Program. The below steps will walk you through the application for approval. 

NOTE: It is the intent of the Wynwood Transfer of Development Density (TDD) Program to encourage the development of Affordable/Workforce Housing, Civic Open Space, and Legacy Use Floor Area within a Legacy Structure by creating a process whereby the otherwise unusable Development Density of a New NRD-1 development site, Legacy Structure, or improved open space area may be converted into an asset that may be sold to eligible receiving sites located within the NRD-1 boundaries. The Wynwood TDD Program, permitted only within the NRD-1, will facilitate the transfer of Density from Existing or New NRD-1 Development Sites, Legacy Structures, and improved Open Space sites to encourage new residential development that supports the character of Wynwood. Notwithstanding Chapter 23 of the City Code, no property within the NRD-1 boundaries may utilize any other TDD program that may be applicable under the Miami 21 Zoning Code or the City Code, either as a sending property or receiving site except as allowed herein.
