Brickell City CentreBrickell City Centre, Miami’s landmark mixed-use development, unveiled its luxury retail center in November of 2016. Following the opening, several high-end and contemporary retailers have announced their plans to join the center. Brickell City Centre has most recently announced a two-story Zara, which will serve as a shopping destination for men, women, and children, as well as a MAC Cosmetics store.  Both stores are set to open fall 2017.

“It has been our goal to create a retail center where shoppers have access to an extensive lineup of exciting and relevant brands,” said Debora Overholt, vice president of retail for Swire Properties. “We are very pleased to welcome recognized retail brands such as Zara and MAC. Brickell City Centre is built as a destination in and of itself – with the hotel, cinema, and other attractions creating an environment where shoppers want to and are able to stay longer.”

These two stores join BCC’s existing tenant mix which includes the following opened stores: Acqua di Parma, AllSaints, Armani Collezioni, Bally, Boglioli, BOSS, Diptyque, Orlebar Brown, Saks Fifth Avenue, Tommy Bahama, Vilebrequin and more.

Brickell City CentreA handful of acclaimed, chef-driven restaurants are currently operating in the center, including Luke’s Lobster, Pubbelly Sushi, American Harvest, Tacology, Santa Fe, Big Easy Wine Bar & Grill, Dr Smood and Haagen-Dazs, with a number of restaurants soon to open in the coming weeks.

The diverse mix features international cuisine, restaurant groups exclusive to Miami, and both fast-casual and contemporary experiences. The restaurants serve Brickell’s record-breaking daytime population (with it being the main financial district of the Southeast), its international tourists as well as the dense and affluent surrounding neighborhoods of Miami. CMX from Mexico, a luxury dine-in movie theater, will soon join the mix.

The project also recently re-launched its website with a “Create Your Own Itinerary” feature, which crafts custom BCC itineraries based on a visitor’s interests, the length of their visit and shopping and dining preferences. In the coming months, Brickell City Centre will also debut an advanced phone application for the project that is poised to be one of the most innovative and comprehensive apps created for a shopping center. Phase one of the app is currently downloadable on iTunes and Google Play.

Brickell City Centre’s diverse mix of luxury and contemporary stores features a remarkable amount of international brands breaking ground in the U.S. A full list of open and soon-to-open stores can be found here.
