The Success of The Wynwood Yard.
Aug 04, 2017
- wynwoodyardWynwood caught the eye of developer David Lombardi back in 2000, and we're so glad it did. A former restaurateur, David was a main pioneer behind Wynwood's transformation into international arts and culture destination and a local hot spot. He's also a core member of the @wynwoodmiami BID. 🔅
In the summer of 2015, Della stumbled upon four vacant lots in Wynwood and soon after, was lucky enough to meet their owner. David immediately connected with Della's vision to launch a culinary incubator and entrepreneurial hub. 🔅
As our landlord, David and his team at Lombardi Properties have provided The Yard with incredibly valuable support, resources, and strategic insights since Day 1. 🔅 "The Wynwood Yard is a culmination of what many of us have strived to make the neighborhood into for the past 16 years," says David, "A place for every culture and age group of our great city to come together and where young entrepreneurs can hang a shingle and start a business. Della and her team have surpassed any expectations I could have had for the property and I am proud to be involved." 🔅
As The Wynwood Yard grows, we want to thank David Lombardi for his initial and ongoing support of our unconventional entrepreneurial endeavor. #wynwoodyard#miamientrepreneurs #yardstory
- stenfilmsWhen I was in film school I reached out to this man to shoot one of my ultra low budget films on one of his properties. He was an absolute delight and happily gave us the keys to the lot for free. A lot of people dismiss and turn away from student filmmakers, not this man. I'm very greatful for that gesture so many years ago and even more so now as I am a resident near wynwood and I enjoy the area often. #shoutouttoDL #greatguy
