One of the most recognizable Miami Music Week party venues is getting a makeover. If you’ve ever attended Above & Beyond‘s Miami Music Week party then you’ve been to RC Cola Plant. Billionaire businessman, and real estate developer, Moishe Mana just announced plans for a $20 million-plus redevelopment of the former RC Cola Plant in Wynwood, Miami. A move forward on the long-stalled vision for his portfolio in Miami’s arts district, according to The Real Deal.
The project, titled Mana Wynwood @ RC Cola, is more of a repurposing than a new development since only two small buildings will be demolished. The rest of the site and all of the murals will remain, Martin said. Among the list of new builds, is an indoor food hall with nine tenants, a bar spanning 100 feet on two sides, outdoor space for food trucks, a beer garden, retail, event space, and 10,000 square feet of parks and gardens at 550 Northwest 24th Street, according to Mana and Thomas Martin, RC Cola project director.
“We are going to put [on] outdoor music at night that we have for concerts. During the day, it will be a place for families to visit. It’s really a huge undertaking.”

Mana bought the RC Cola Plant in 2010 for $2.1 million, according to records which he has since run it as a concert venue. The 145,000-square-foot site will continue acting as a premier concert space but will now include an outdoor event space and 10,000 square feet of indoor seating and stage space.
