The Miami Design District is a thriving neighborhood dedicated to fashion, design, culture and creativity of all kinds. More than 60 flagship stores, Miami’s best restaurants, established and emerging artists, architects and designers all call the Miami Design District home.
For more than twenty years, Craig Robins has been nurturing the development of this unique neighborhood. Today, the principal owner of the neighborhood is Miami Design District Associates, a partnership between Robins’ company Dacra and L Real Estate, a global developer specializing in luxury.
The partnership is fueling the continued transformation of the neighborhood. By the end of 2016, the main pedestrian thoroughfare will be extended and a new art-filled plaza will open featuring retail and restaurants like chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s ABC Kitchen and L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon. By 2017 there will be 120 stores, 15 restaurants and a hotel. More luxury brands, such as Gucci and Saint Laurent, will join Fendi, Prada, Bulgari, Hermès, Dior, Cartier, Louis Vuitton, Rolex, Tom Ford, Valentino, Harry Winston, Céline, Giorgio Armani, Versace, Givenchy and Tiffany & Co., who are already in the neighborhood.
The new Institute of Contemporary Art Miami (ICA) building will join the cultural offerings that include the de la Cruz Collection Contemporary Art Space, and the public art, design installations and architecture by John Baldessari, Zaha Hadid, The Buckminster Fuller Institute, Sou Fujimoto, Marc Newson, Konstantin Grcic and Xavier Veilhan. A ten-story hotel and residential building is also in development and its ground floor retail will bring the total number of stores in the district to more than 200.
