Chick-fil-A Announces Flagship Location At Virgin MiamiCentral Will Open This Spring, Part Of 100,000 Square Feet Of Retail

Chick-fil-A has announced that they will open a flagship location at Virgin MiamiCentral this Spring, in the large retail area at the base of the train station.

It will become the sixth Chick fil-A location in Miami-Dade and one of its largest, at nearly 3,000-square feet.

“Virgin MiamiCentral is the epicenter of the rapidly transforming downtown Miami landscape and Chick-fil-A will be a welcomed dining addition,” said Elizabeth Higgins, Brightline’s Associate Vice President of Retail. “This location of one of the most popular fast-food brands in the country is certain to be an instant favorite for those who live, work and play downtown.”

In total, the ground floor retail promenade at Virgin MiamiCentral spans three blocks and around 100,000 square feet.

One other tenant now under construction is Starbucks, which will open next to the lobby of the future Tri-Rail station.

Several other new tenants are set top open at MiamiCentral’s food hall over the next few weeks, including Art de Vivre, Kuenko and 800º Woodfired Kitchen. They will join existing tenants including La Estación American Brasserie, CAO Bakery & Cafe, Rosetta Bakery, World Famous House of Mac, Buck’s Crepes, and PF by Delicatessen Patagonia. There’s also a Joe & The Juice and Einstein Bros. Bagels on the ground floor.

I understand your point, but if you respect the art of cooking chicken, there’s effectively only one option.

Unfortunate that they haven’t been able land one in/near Brickell. Guess I’ll be hopping on a scooter to get my CFA fix- better than driving halfway across Miami out west for it.

Glad there is a Chick-fil-a going there and I enjoy their food. However, it is highly overrated.

It does make sense. You can enjoy their food, but it is good food and not outstanding food that justifies the long lines and all the hype. Perhaps, you need to stop drinking.

“stop drinking?”

This clown writes that he enjoys their food which also means that he’s one of the people who stands in “long lines” for it meaning he is one of reasons their food gets “hyped” but someone else must be drinking because HE does that?

Boy this world is full of Goofballs.

You are delusional. If people don’t agree with your personal opinion that Chick-fil-A is incredible, you make things up. How do you know the number of times and frequency this guy eats at Chick-fil-a?
I think he has it right that you must be drinking.

I’m not the one who says I enjoy eating at CHICK-FIL-A but then wonder why it gets the hype.

You and this person who enjoys eating there must’ve came to earth from Bizarro World!

Trust me, it is all fun and games for the time being until those test results start showing the effects of that crap on your mind and body…but enjoy you all…when since does a true American care about such things as a healthy existence over 40yo. Wouldn’t be so bad if you actually lived a short beautiful life but good luck when you find out that you’ve been chosen by the universe to live another 45 yrs with whatever – then won’t that be something. 🙂

They keep firing people or people keep leaving plus lawsuits. Their own brokers don’t talk highly of the project. They need to build a better team.

Awful project when compared to it neighbors. Their rent is too high. Work has it that’s the Starbucks and chick Fil are the same person and they had to put money into make those deals happen after almost losing them. Block 55 next door is much better planned. All the food listed is in their food court which is empty and they complain all of the time.
The train is awesome though. Maybe their apartment buildings will save it.

Well if they would stop dragging their feet on Tri-rail into downtown the station would get more street traffic.

What neighbors? Miami world (there is nothing there)? Give credit where it’s due…they turned the area around from what it was. Sure it’s still under construction and traffic is not there yet but that’s how half the areas in South Fla. Started and then developed. If they put $$ into making deals happen, how is that bad? Stop with the negative comments that make no sense and support these developers and your local community groups that are trying to improve areas!

“Polo” Tropical is alright. Ralph Lauren does some good Hawaiian shirts.

The chicken and beans place, however, is nasty AF.
