Video Walk Through Of Brickell City Centre; Just A Handful Of Stores Ready To Open

Brickell City Centre is already proving transformational for Brickell, although most stores in the mall are not yet open.

Over the weekend, just a few of the shops in the mall were actually ready to welcome customers. The food hall, restaurants, and theater were closed.

An entire wing of the mall, the North Block, remains closed, as is the direct entrance from the Metromover.

Despite this, there were throngs of visitors who came to check the place out.

For now, self parking in the two-level underground parking garage is free, with valet costing $13 an hour.

Ok, so here are my 2 cents.
My business partners and I took the Metromover there on Saturday while it was raining cats and dogs. As this article says the direct access from the Metromover to the Mall is not yet opened, so we had to walk down and get in through the street. Some parts were really wet, and we noticed a few people who work there trying to push the rain into the drains with brooms. It is a good size mall and I think it will look great when all the stores are open. The color grey as I have stated before is not my cup of tea; however, it may make a nice background to the decorations that will be on the store windows. Sacks looked great! The escalator to Cinemex was blocked so I cannot comment on that. Going back to the issue of the rain. I would say that about 80 to 90% of the mall is covered. The areas that do get wet are on the side and that is only because here in FL it rains sideways.

After our short walk and realizing that all the food options were not yet opened we took the elevator to Quinto La Huella, they were packed, in fact there was a 20 minute wait. We saw the menu and the prices were pretty normal for Brickell. What no one in my group liked is the fact that the tables and chairs feel more like a casual place, which is fine, but if you are dishing out $30 bucks for a meal you want to sit down and feel like you are in an actual restaurant. We were super hungry and no one wanted to wait 20 minutes, so we left. Over all I really liked the mall but I really think they are at least 6 months away from having a real opening.

Nice to see the mall open, even if still empty stores for now. Looking forward to movie theater and Italian food plaza.
