Bowlero, Lucid Motors, & Sephora Are Coming To Miami Worldcenter

Miami Worldcenter has announced that three new tenants have signed on to open at the $4 billion mixed-use development.

Bowlero, Lucid Motors, and Sephora all have signed leases for space, according to a press release by the developer.

Two of the tenants, Lucid and Sephora, already have locations nearby at Brickell City Centre. The third, Bowlero, will compete with Puttshack at Brickell City Centre.

Here’s what each of the new retailers is planning at Worldcenter:

  • Bowlero will occupy more than 31,000 square feet in Miami Worldcenter’s glass-encased ‘Jewel Box’ retail building overlooking World Square plaza.  The facility will include 28 blacklight bowling lanes, a giant arcade with 75 state-of-the-art games, a sports bar, lounge style seating and upscale food and beverage offerings.
  • Lucid Motors will be located along 1st Avenue and 10th Street, on the same block as Paramount. The luxury electric vehicle company will occupy nearly 23,000 square feet of space. There will be a showroom called a Lucid Studio, along with a delivery center and service facility.
  • Sephora will be located at the World Square plaza along Miami Worldcenter’s 7th Street Promenade. The company is one of the world’s most recognized beauty retailers.

In total, the new tenants are taking 60,000 square feet of retail space. With previously announced tenants, a total of 90,000 square feet has been leased.

Tenants that were already announced include restaurants Maple & Ash and etta, both of Chicago, along with Chef Michael Beltran’s Brasserie Laurel and El Vecino.

Worldcenter partner CIM Group and Comras represented the landlord, Miami Worldcenter Associates, in all three of the latest transactions. The Comras team of Michael Comras, Michael Silverman and Jeff Evans also represented both Sephora and Bowlero on the tenant side.

Worldenter has around 150,000 square feet of retail already completed for tenant build-outs, and another 130,000 square feet under construction and nearing delivery.

The developer also announced today that they are building World Square, a 20,000-square-foot public plaza and park. World Square is being designed to serve as as a central gathering place and outdoor event space. It will feature shade trees, works of art by local and international artists, and oversized, pedestrian-friendly sidewalks lined with dining, entertainment, and retail concepts.

The retail outlets will begin opening in 2022.

No. There was a misleading headline on this site:

“Tesla To Miami Worldcenter? Developer Amends Bylaws To Allow Electric Car Dealers”

In reality all that happened was an amendment was passed to allow electric car dealers to be eligible for space at MWC. So theoretically after that amendment was passed we could have had a Tesla, but looks like the developers were only able to secure a LUCID with Tesla already being in the Design District.

That being said, Lucid is nothing to sneeze at either. I’m excited to have them.

The walking distance is comparable to Times Square to Rock Center, or Times Square to Hudson Yards. Or Brookfield place to the shopping center at the Oculus. And I can tell you there are plenty of repeated stores. Point being, so what?

If there is enough demand to support another location then so be it. It’s not “better” to ignore demand just because theres another location a 20 minute walk away.

They have plenty of space in the back with seating areas already. They could open that up as restaurants and leave them accessible to the public not just the people that went to see a concert or game. Also the roof would be really cool if utilized as a rooftop bar. Either the huge roof or the smaller roofs facing the back.

Just because something is located, purely out of convenience, at a transportation terminal – does not eliminate the need for it to exist outside of that terminal in a nearby neighborhood. So, just because there is a Starbucks and chik fil a at MCS, doesn’t mean they’re not allowed to also exist in the enormous nearby development…..

These tenants are encouraging. Sephora was already announced on this site earlier; so just Lucid and Bowlero are news.

Bowlero is taking up 31,000 feet of a 135,208 square foot building. I’m assuming it’s taking up half of the first floor. I wonder who the remaining tenants will be – any leads?

You can also see some retail tenants getting ready to open at Coaba. Looks like one is a furniture showroom. Another is blocked out for a “fitness studio” so I’m guessing Orangetheory by the look/layout of the space.
