Miami Worldcenter

Miami Worldcenter is one of the largest private master-planned projects in the United States, featuring a diversity of urban land use, including retail, hospitality, and residential space. Located in the core of downtown Miami, the ten-block, mixed-use development is situated immediately north of the Central Business District and is surrounded by world-class amenities and boasts convenient access to transportation.

Miami Worldcenter has an unprecedented collection of retail offerings. The Mall at Miami Worldcenter, our signature destination, will feature 765,000 square feet of best-in-class retail, destination dining, and enticing entertainment. The project will be anchored by a 120,000-square-foot Bloomingdale’s and a 195,000-square-foot Macy’s, all in the most accessible site in the region.

Complementing the Mall retail experience is the 7th Street Promenade. It is a pedestrian-only thoroughfare that runs east-west through the southern quadrant of Miami Worldcenter, anchored by the new American Airlines Arena and waterfront on the east. Inspired by the world’s great pedestrian streets, the 7th Street Promenade builds on themes made classic by the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica, the Place de l’Horloge in Avignon, and South Beach’s own Lincoln Road. The energy of the Promenade’s street life will be palpable, with European-style outdoor cafés, bars, restaurants, and boutique retail shops.
