Food & Beverage Coming To Eight-Story Downtown Miami Building Following Sale

More restaurants will soon be coming to downtown Miami.

The eight-story “First & First” building was sold last week to Downtown NS, said to be managed by Elliot Antebi.

The Wynwood-based buyer plans to bring in food and beverage tenants to help activate the area, in place of the current precious metals business, a broker told The Real Deal.

The building is over 100 years old. It was developed between 1906 and 1915 and has about 22,000 square feet of leasable space.

Across the street is the historic Old United States Post Office and Courthouse building, where another food beverage and entertainment redevelopment is planned to include a brewery by Biscayne Brewing.

Downtown is coming alive! Still so much room for growth, the area is in its infancy as far as utilizing its potential.

You can say that again.
Shame that the very center of the city is still dragging its feet as far as activity. I say build Skyrise and you’ll see change.

No need to build Skyrise. I rather see something of that magnitude in the Mainland

The man behind Skyrise was counting on Chinese money to build his ugly designed concept. I think that idea went kaput!

As Miami’s second oldest skyscraper, it deserves quality tenants. So does the oldest, the original Burdines store on the northeast corner of Miami Avenue and SW 1st Street, but that won’t happen unless its restored, reserving the walled-in windows creating a blank wall which is now covered by a faded and chipping mural of whales and Metromover track.

“Food and beverage tenants?” Sort of vague considering that what there already is/was at the ground level.

Isn’t this the same article from last week?
