You are right, but let’s call what you’re talking about by its accurate name — MWC needs something “Instagrammable”

The area need more pedestrians streets and plaza to make people walk around. Its looks like dead zone right now. Nothing like brickell. Its downtown folks not a suburban car centric location.

MWC isn’t open yet, commercial tenants didn’t sign leases yet. No wonder it’s still dead. Duh! Wait that it’s completed and up and running and it’ll be better than Brickell.

I don’t know about “better than Brickell” but your point is definitely take. It’s not open yet! Not sure why the person said it looks dead lol. Not enough construction workers on the scene for your liking?

So the Jewel Box is a huge flagship apple store right?
It has always looked like one in all the renderings. The most current rendering has all the hallmarks of their current design aesthetic with the almost completely flat roof, soaring glass and wood ceiling.
It would make sense for them to have a location in downtown especially with all the cruise tourism etc.

The apple store isn’t the Jewel box. The Jewel box stops at the entrance of the high street mall to its north. And in the renderings on MWC site, there is a all glass box in front of the Jewel box. Closer to 1st Ave and 8th

This is looking great but it needs to go a bit faster and it still needs a lot more buildings for density.

I think tourists and locals are going to flock to this area. It’s not as edgy as Wynwood and not as high-end as BCC. The retail and eateries should be in the affordable range

Its in the most transit accessible part of the city, the garages are a poor use of land

Good.. that means I can pay to park there or I can pay for transit to get me to and from there. The choice is mine.

Stop acting like people want to use public transit. We like our luxury cars here. Most of us drive from our condo to the Publix down the street.

Everyone that is going to visit this place isn’t going to be in a transit area. This is for the whole Miami Dade area to enjoy nit just the ppl that live in downtown area.

Not only that but Miami was built for the automobile. Do you realize what % of the county population live west of I95?

So many dopey professors advance this “built for cars” idea and advocate to “get people out of their cars”.
How about this, commies…

People build for themselves and for other people. The people who build for people with cars are not bad people.

How about this, the Morally Superior people are free to choose the free ride on the MetroMover and the “not yet re-educated” can choose to drive themselves and pay to park.
