Prep Work Underway On Project That Will Double The Size Of Bal Harbour Shops

Prep Work Underway On Project That Will Double The Size Of Bal Harbour Shops

Construction appears to be underway on an expansion of Bal Harbour Shops, the highest grossing mall per square foot in America.

According to a mall representative, prep work and other projects are now underway, with the full expansion to break ground in the first quarter of 2018.

When completed, the mall will double in size at a cost of $400 million.

A new Barney’s New York flagship store is being added, and Neiman Marcus will also be expanded.

Approval of the project is still being challenged in the courts, with attorney Kent Harrison Robbins filing a petition for writ of certiorari on his own behalf.

So far it doesn’t appear that Brickell City Center has had any sort of impact on Bal Harbor.

…or the Design District.

Design District is a more direct competitor, but not much impact there either based on foot traffic when I’ve been there (admittedly unscientific sample)

I doubt it was meant to, considering the Whitmans are involved in BCC. The latter is a much less exclusive shopping and entertainment center for a major downtown, not mall on a literal island of privilege.

Mr. Robbins is a wart on the ass of progress; maybe he should move to Montana. Whether the Bal Harbour Shops are expanded or not, Mr. Robbins will see a continual increased in traffic both vehicular and pedestrian throughout South Florida. Wake up Mr. Robbins your are not living in Wyoming.
