Capital One Bank plans to open their first retail branch in Florida, TNM has learned.
The bank has submitted plans for a café at 1029-1031 Lincoln Road. It will be located in between the recently opened Apple Store and the under-construction Nike Store, on a block owned by Spanish billionaire Amancio Ortega.
Plans show a large cafe seating area. At other Capital One cafes around the country, customers are able to purchase coffee and enjoy free wifi. They typically close at 6pm however, earlier than when pedestrian traffic usually peaks on Lincoln Road.
Miami Beach’s Historic Preservation Board must approve the plans before construction can begin. The board is scheduled to review the item on January 12.
