Burlington Department Store Inks Lease At Under-Construction Block 55 In Downtown Miami

Another retailer has inked a deal to open a store at the Block 55 complex under construction in the Overtown neighborhood.

Burlington Coat Factory will open a 37,900 square foot store on the fifth floor of the development, according to a lease memorandum recently filed in Miami-Dade County records.

Other tenants include Target, Aldi Ross, and Five Below. The Target will have a full-service Starbucks and CVS inside the store.

The ground floor will also have restaurants with ground floor seating, according to the developer’s website.

Block 55 will have around 250,000 square feet of retail space, approximately 1000 parking spaces, and 578 affordable apartment units.

Construction began in June.

They should move the Ross being built under Vizcayne to Overtown. It would make a lot more sense.

Close CVS there and Marinablue, too. One of them belongs on Flagler Street in some crappy Mana low-rise.

Nah, I live at Marina Blue and I love having a 24/7 CVS, I only wish it had a pharmacy too. What needs to go is subway and eventually if Pucci and Poke Mana became fancier restaurant choices, I’d be happy for that too but they are fine for now.

Oh boy, Burlington is known as the grim reaper of big box retail centers, hope this one doesn’t flop

For ones that were anchored by Circuit City, Linen ‘N Things, and The Sports Authority, yes. Not sure about something built from scratch.

Exactly! 2 blocks from Brightline and 1 block from FTX, and Burlington is what they came up with. Look at the targeted rents and younger demographic of Apts in downtown. Burlington does not fit.

For who?

For everybody. You can’t expect things to improve around you while you stay the same though. It’s a symbiosis, you need to work on improving yourself as the world arounds you improves. If you stay the same, you will be a misfit but we can’t stop progress based on your lack of improvement!

So if your spouse kicks you to the curb for somebody else, don’t complain, because they did it for I M P R O V E M E N T, P R O G R E S S, and O P P O R T U N I T Y.

Thats called a Gold Digger. You would know the difference if you had some sense, but alas we live in the world of the senseless.

^ So if somebody kicks you to the curb, it’s just because he/she is a “gold digger” and didn’t do it to, like you say, IMPROVE, PROGRESS, and take the OPPORTUNITY?

I see.. I’m talking to somebody that hasn’t been on this earth that long.

^ No, that’s not it.. I just don’t look at this development as a win for “everybody” who lives in Overtown. Remember, winning is just a concept.. meaning, it’s just “general notion.”

Nothing is ever good for everyone. If one person from Overtown gets a job because of this development then it’s a win overall and you better believe that this development will employ dozens if not hundreds of local residents over time.

Regarding the spouse analogy to gentrification, if you stayed with your spouse for so long and did nothing to try and improve your relationship…

No it would be gentrification because she left your ass for someone richer, nicer, and more good looking! 🤗

Citizens moving? You act as if these neighborhoods don’t have individuals of different backgrounds. Let’s not be bigots, this is not the 1930s.

Um, no. If property taxes go up and you cant afford them and have to sell, that’s the same thing as getting priced out due to rental hikes.

What’s the alternative? Let the neighborhood rot? Neighborhoods change, its just a fact of life. North Miami was once an all white suburb, now it’s mostly black and haitian. What do you call that?
