Swire Opens $1.05 Billion Brickell City Centre’s Open-Air Shopping Center to the Public

by Katie Sloan

Miami — Hong Kong-based Swire Properties, along with co-developers Whitman Family Development and Simon Property Group, has opened the first group of retail stores at Brickell City Centre, a $1.05 billion mixed-use destination in downtown Miami’s Brickell district.

The project’s 500,000-square-foot, open-air shopping center houses more than 100 retailers and eateries, including a flagship Saks Fifth Avenue, Victoria’s Secret, Suit Supply, lululemon athletica, Cinemex, Coach, LIVE! and Porsche Design. Opening in 2017 will be a three-story Italian food hall that will feature a market, wine shop, gelato, cheese bar and restaurant.

Swire Properties is integrating the Miami Metromover transit system with Brickell City Centre with a stop that exits directly onto the shopping center’s third floor. About 20 percent of the retail center at Brickell City Centre will feature retailers exclusive to the area and/or entering the United States for the first time from Europe and Latin America.

The development, which also features two condo towers, two Class A office towers and the EAST, Miami hotel, are linked together by Climate Ribbon, a $30 million elevated trellis of steel, glass and fabric that is designed to harness Miami’s bay breezes while deflecting direct sunlight. The shopping center is currently 92 percent leased.
