Former Macy’s In Downtown Miami For Rent By Owner

The former Macy’s property in downtown Miami is being offered for lease by the owner.

The store closed earlier this year, and has been vacant since.

A sign was taped to the front of the door last week, lisiting a contact number of the owner.

There is also a listing created on the property listing website Loopnet, offering full floor spaces of 45,000 square feet, or an entire 270,000 square foot building.

Iconic building but very outdated – downtown has so much unrealized potential can only hope Mana follows through soon or else it’ll be more of the same as in urine scented sidewalks and make shift shelters…

This would be a perfect location for a shopping in the likes of 5 & Alton or Miracle Mile Marketplace in Coral Gables. We don’t need another fancy department store/movie theater/food hall in downtown.

Yeah… and they want people to look at how sloppy that was done and still be interested in leasing this place.

Love that duct tape….It signals that this is a serious marketing campaign.
Do you think the landlord will be competitive with the build out allowances??

Time to demolish this one and build something iconic, and worthy of its location.

Sorry, but no. Part of the building at the corner of first street is Miami’s first skyscraper, although it’s unrecognizable today, and plenty of other nondescript low-rises exist along Flagler which can be replaced with something bigger and better, if only slumlord Mana didn’t own them all.

No. This building is both those you mention. Iconic and worthy of it’s location. Let’s restore it and attract a class A tenant.

Transform it into a Work live Lofts. I will move there in a second.

You probably would prefer a giant parking garage with some empty condos on top, right?

No, iconic office building was my first thought. IMO the current building is not relevant.

Take a look at what was proposed a few years ago for a transparent media facade on the bridge – http://streaming.a2amedia.net/StreamLink.php?linklokauth=RkxNSUFNQUNZQS5odG1sLDE1MzczODI1MDYsMC4wLjAuMCwwLDEsTExfMSwsYTY4ZTRlZWZjYzZiNzA4YTdlNjQ4OGQ1Yjc4ZTI2YTI%3D/FLMIAMACYA.html .
It could be used in in many ways for the area and make $$ for the owner and the City (Via licenses). The pedestrian and vehicular traffic numbers were strong enough to support this, and if done correctly, it could be a great community based media board for the high number of millennials (35K MDC students) living in the area.

That video is awesome…its great place-making opportunity and can be used as a gathering spot much like the 1950’s Xmas gathering for the old Burdines.

A lot of that dull looking crap downtown needs to be mowed down and replaced.

Yeah, including this one! People need to stop trying to preserve buildings, just because they are old!
