It does not depend only on the design but also on the spirit

Por mayli2017

Some experts believe that it is too hasty to judge the growth of the Design District, as the area is still a project in progress. In the next six months, four new restaurants will arrive from culinary stars Brad Kilgore, Joël Robuchon and Jean-Georges Vongerichten.The great restaurant chain, St. Roch Market will also come with 12 restaurants. Dolce & Gabbana, Balenciaga and Céline stores will debut soon. It is said that a superstar of music and film are considering putting their own restaurant there.According to Tony Cho, founder and CEO of Metro 1, whose office is based in nearby Edgewater, the creation of a neighborhood is a process: it does not happen overnight. The Design District is a multi-year and multi-phase project. Craig is doing the right thing and keeping parking costs low.

It has been 25 years since the urban planner Craig Robins founded his first property in the then ravaged neighborhood for interior designers. Almost three decades later, the recent expansion of the Miami Design District, at a cost of $ 1,400 million, is almost complete.The barricades and cement trucks have disappeared from the First Avenue of the Northeast, the streets are open, blocked to traffic, as well as the sidewalks and spaces to walk on foot through the area.

Robins has maintained in the Design District historical gems like the Moore Building, which was built in 1921, mixing with spectacular facades, modernist buildings and art installations such as the dome designed by Buckminster Fuller, which is large enough to walk through her. In addition to luxury stores such as Gucci and Rag & Bone, two new museums have been opened for free to the public.

The Cuban restaurant Estefan Kitchen has also opened while the Nite Owl Theater has shown cult and classic films since August.However, many other attractions are planned. It is planned to build four celebrity restaurants and a seven-story parking lot with impetuous and photogenic facades profiled by six different artists.Despite all the attention it provokes in the media and witnessing countless concerts by famous artists, the Design District of Miami remains an unknown celebrity in his own hometown.

The territory covers 18 blocks north of downtown Miami, from NE 38 to 42 Street between N Miami Ave. and Biscayne Blvd.It is a space of authenticity, a place that maintains its essence and will continue to be so, an area that seeks to gradually attract more and more people. Although they promote it in signs and media, it is a place to go to discover it with their own eyes.According to critics and competitors, the Design District does not fulfill its potential as a center for retail stores. The area currently houses some 80 shops and boutiques and 70 design rooms for the home.However, there are days that few pedestrians have been seen in the neighborhood squares, empty tables in restaurants and gleaming stores were mostly empty.

This type of situation is rare in other retail markets such as Miami-Dade, one of the most recognized in the United States. According to the report of the sales in Miami of the autumn realized by Cushman & Wakefield, the sales of 2016 there arrived at the $ 55,000 million.To say of the rankings of 2016 conducted by the research firm Green Street Advisors, the most popular shopping mall in the nation, Bal Harbor Shops, had sales of $ 3,185 per square foot, despite the fierce competition that led some famous retailers to leave Bal Harbor for the Design District.
