Tucandela buys Wynwood building to open Latin-themed nightclub – Trade Observer

Tucandela Group bought a Wynwood building for $9.2 million with plans to open an outpost of its Latin-themed nightclub, according to Metro 1, who brokered the deal.

There are two Tucandela clubs, one in Mary Brickell Village mall outside and another inside Palm trees at Town & Country mall in Kendall, a suburban town southwest of Miami.

The Wynwood club is expected to open the first quarter of next year at 2445 N Miami Avenue at the corner of 25th street. The 12,404 square foot site includes a two-story building, which spans 8,407 square feet.

Sellers, a joint venture between Real Estate Link and Jameson Stocks, bought the property for $4.2 million in 2019, records show. The two companies, led by Dan Arev and brothers Joe and Richard Serure respectively, also own a one-story commercial building across the street that once housed a printing press.

Metro 1 Juan Andres Nava and Bernardita Banfi represented the sellers in the transaction, while Hector Antunezalso from Metro 1, represented Tucandela, led by Brian Mejia.

The new Tucandela site is an excellent example of Wynwood’s evolution. The neighborhood was home to struggling commercial buildings that have been converted into retail, which has turned the neighborhood into a nightlife mecca. It is through these restaurants and clubs that technology companies, such as Blockchain.comflocked to Wynwood last year, signing leases.

“In addition to unique new restaurant and nightlife concepts like Tucandela, the neighborhood is rapidly adding new residential, office and hospitality projects,” Nava said in a statement.
