Wynwood BID: E Chip Miami is working closely with the Wynwood BID in the migration to Chip technology for the local business community. As an artistic, fashion, and media forward community, the Wynwood BID is also technology forward by exploring new technologies to engage, connect, transact, and learn with visitors, residents, and businesses. It is home to numerous restaurants, artists studios, cafes, bars, over seventy galleries, five museums, three collections, seven art complexes, twelve art studios and five art fairs.

The Wynwood BID (Business Improvement District) is a designated area in which the commercial property owners decide to collectively raise their own taxes by a small percentage in order to fund improvements within the district’s boundaries. In the state of Florida, communities who are seeking to become a Business Improvement District have to do so by holding a ballot election. If the BID goes through, then 100% of the money which the commercial property owners assess themselves goes directly into improvements in the District. The BID is an excellent initiative to ensure the continued growth and enhancement of our community, while at the same time helping its individual businesses thrive. As the District is better able to accommodate its visitors, it is only natural that Wynwood becomes a magnet of its own within the urban core of the city. As more pedestrians visit our growing district and walk our streets, more opportunities to engage in business by the local commerce arise.
