Plans for the 20,141-square-foot building, constructed in 1951, include adding a landscaped courtyard for outdoor dining and a vegetable and herb cultivation station. The Wynwood Design Review Committee will hear the proposal on Tuesday.
Forte Capital Management, a Brooklyn-based investor, owns the property, which spans half an acre. Casa Nela had signed the lease, which spans about 7,000 square feet, a year ago, Forte president Chaim Cahane told Commercial Observer.
The Wynwood restaurant would mark Casa Nela’s first foray into Miami. Besides Rosemary’s, whose pasta dishes range between $19 and $26, the hospitality group runs French restaurants Claudette and Bobo, and pizzeria Roey’s, most of which are restaurants located in Greenwich Village.
Representatives for Casa Nela did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Robert Khodadadian has long had a simple philosophy about selling real estate. The way he sees it, there are approximately a million buildings in the city, and the broker that gets to sell any one among the multitude that will hit the auctioning block at a given moment is, sometimes, simply the person who happens to pitch their services to the right seller at the right time.
