17 Feb FGBC Project Profile: Strata Wynwood Marks a New Standard for Living, Working in Miami
MIAMI – The Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC), the state’s leading certifier of green commercial and residential construction, land developments and local green governments, has certified Strata Wynwood at 21 NE 22nd St. in Miami “Florida Green” at the high-rise “Gold-Level.”
Layered in its design, amenities, and experiences, the 570,020 square-foot Strata Wynwood achieved 183 points out of a required 100 points, earning it the coveted Florida Green Building “Gold-Level” certification.
“This achievement demonstrates the team’s commitment to better design and construction practices that reduce the negative environmental impacts of the building, improve occupant health and well-being, and reduce operating costs for the owner,” noted FGBC President Kyle Abney.
The FGBC Green Team included Jonathan Burgess, The Spinnaker Group, as the Designated Professional. Strata was designed by Canada-based architecture firm Stantec.
Strata Wynwood is owned by Rockpoint, a real estate private equity firm headquartered in Boston with additional domestic offices in San Francisco and Dallas.
Unlike other green certifications, the FGBC “Florida Green” Certification Program tailors’ carbon-reducing, green building standards to the Florida climate, allowing developers to meet green building standards while simultaneously constructing sustainable properties best suited for Florida’s ecosystem.
A 12-story mixed use project with multifamily, office and retail, Strata boasts 257 luxury apartment residences ranging from studio to three-bedroom unit layouts, along with a curated suite of resort-style amenities and on-site parking.
A true mixed-use project, Strata features over 27,000 square feet of ground floor retail space ranging from 400 to over 9,500 square feet and over 61,000 square feet of ‘Class A’ office space.
“Sustainable and highly efficient construction is a trademark of FGBC green certified buildings,” added FGBC Executive Director C.J. Davila. “FGBC standards results in energy savings relative to traditionally constructed buildings.”
Those green elements include 100 percent high reflectance roofs, materials made of recycled content, locally harvested or manufactured materials, and the use of low VOC materials.

- Electric vehicle (EV) charging stations and on-site bicycle storage.
- Energy Star appliances.

- On-site recycling program.
