A new wave of upscale shops and restaurants is headed to the Miami Design District, including Gucci, Alexander Wang, Warby Parker and Estefan Kitchen, a Cuban concept led by Gloria and Emilio Estefan.
Gucci will build a flagship store of 7,000 square feet in the Design District, joining the already open Hermès, Tom Ford, Louis Vuitton, Cartier and others. Christian Louboutin will expand and open a flagship store next spring, according to developer Dacra Design District.
The French fashion house Eres, the retailer Cos and Ahana Yoga have signed leases. Estefan Kitchen will open at the Palm Court, and Warby Parker will open its second Miami store about a mile from its Wynwood location, which opened last year. Previously, three restaurants were announced by renowned French chef and restaurateur Joël Robuchon.
The neighborhood currently spans 18 blocks north of I-195, between North Miami Avenue and the Fourth Northeast Court. More than 60 stores and restaurants currently occupy 700,000 square feet of retail space. The next phase will add more than 250,000 square feet of commercial space, a 120-room hotel and a new 900-car parking structure, Dacra said.
