DORAL, Fla., Nov. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Armando Codina and Ana-Marie Codina Barlick with Codina Partners, developers of Downtown Doral, are bringing a little bit of Wynwood west with The Doral Yard—a new community gathering concept created by Della Heiman and Ken Lyon of Yard Hospitality, and Joseph Furst of the Wynwood Business Improvement District and formerly with Goldman Properties. The Doral Yard is scheduled to open in Spring 2019.

«As landlord and property manager we understand the value of placemaking and attracting partners known for providing an elevated customer experience. At our corporate headquarters at 2020 Salzedo in downtown Coral Gables, we secured the recently crowned ‘Best Pastry Chef in the World’ Antonio Bachour with Bachour restaurant and bakery that will soon debut. For Downtown Doral, we were missing a retail concept that bridged food, working, and art all in one place, and The Doral Yard will be it,» said Ana-Marie Codina Barlick, CEO of Codina Partners.  «We had been tracking Wynwood Yard’s success as a hub for food, art, and community engagement, as well as admired Joe Furst’s work in helping to transform Wynwood into the desirable arts district it is today. They are the ideal partners to bring that particular offering to life in our growing community.»

The Doral Yard will be a 20,000-square-foot space divided into three zones: The Hub, CHARCOAL garden bar + grill, and The Backyard. It will be an elevated experience specifically created for the Doral market.

«We look forward to making our mark on the Doral community with a food, culture, and round-the-clock Yard of activities,» said Heiman. «True to our Wynwood Yard traditions, we will host about ten free events each week when we open The Doral Yard.»

At 5,000 square feet, The Hall will house an indoor micro food hall with a co-working café and three local food concepts, including a della bowls.  A full-service bar will serve cocktails, beer, wine, coffee, juices and more. The space will also be available for meetings and events.

«Creating compelling communities requires differentiated content and offerings,» added Furst. «I believe our team will deliver one of the most exciting food, beverage and entertainment venues in Miami-Dade County. The Codinas’ work in Downtown Doral is nothing short of extraordinary, and I am excited to play a role in its growth.»

Housed in a group of refurbished shipping containers is CHARCOAL garden bar + grill, the full-service restaurant that originally launched at The Wynwood Yard and offers a selection of responsibly-sourced meats and vegetables grilled over a charcoal-fired Spanish Josper grill.

The Backyard is a 5,000-square foot, partially-covered, outdoor entertainment area adorned with greenery at all sides. This will be the space for locals and visitors to enjoy live music and other cultural performances.

The Doral Yard was designed by architect Eduardo Pardo-Fernandez. CHARCOAL garden bar + grill will feature a modified shipping container design by Little River Box Company.
