Permitting Underway For Restaurant Complex At Downtown Miami's Former La Epoca Department Store

Permitting Underway For Restaurant Complex At Downtown Miami’s Former La Epoca Department Store

The five-story downtown Miami building that most recently was the home of a department store called La Epoca is one step closer to becoming an entertainment complex.

Last week a construction permit was filed to remodel the historic art deco building, which was completed as a Walgreens in 1937. Signage was also recently installed on the building.

According to the application, 48,205 square feet will be renovated into restaurant space.

In July, developer Stambul closed on the property for $19.75 million. At the time, they said they planned to begin renovating the building into a high-end retail, dining and entertainment complex by the end of 2018.

Stambul is also working on renovating the nearby building known as the Old United States Post Office and Courthouse into restaurant and brewery space.

How about some diversity in entertainment options in downtown such as a world class dance studio like Alvin Ailey in NYC?

I would have rather seen Walgreens again and WeWork or equivalent space instead of stacked vague entertainment space, which would be better dispersed to make downtown more active in dead zones. Too bad.
