Photos: Trader Joe’s New Midtown Miami Store

In Midtown Miami, a Trader Joe’s store is nearly complete.

It will become the first Trader Joe’s store within City of Miami limits.

Construction on the store began in June 2021, after a master construction permit to build out the store was issued by the city.

In total, 14,795 square feet of space is being built out at an estimated cost of $2.2 million.

The new Trader Joe’s store will be located on the ground floor of the Gio Midtown building, which was completed in 2020.

Great for the neighborhood. It’s great to have a Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods store close by.

And Whole Foods coming a few blocks away within the next couple years! Edgewater will have some great grocery options.

Great that they’re expanding in Miami. Organic & affordable food is necessary.

I don’t think people shop at Trader Joe’s for affordability.

Wait what? Have you been there? The entire concept of TJ’s is an affordable version of Whole Foods.

Trader Joe’s existed before Whole Foods, which has become a lot cheaper and mainstream every since Amazon bought it, even as their launching Amazon Fresh stores.

Organic and affordable don’t exactly go hand in hand.

To think ten years ago if we got a Welfaremart instead, the whole Wynwood/Midtown and Edgewater area wouldn’t be as booming as it is today.

Good, Midtown folks can stay away from my Publix at 17th and Biscayne now. We are getting swamped here.

Interested to see if they’re able to find employees. There’s been no progress in months so either there is a contract issue or hiring issue.

Well yeah, to be above the def of rent burdened in midtown you would need to make over 110k /yr

I was making 70k when i moved to midtown three years ago. And know plenty of people who still making 65k still living here. My original post was about hiring workers at trade joes, 98% wouldn’t be living in midtown anyways.

How can someone with mad sigma, chad, and based skills make only 70K?

With all the money they will make at this store, they surely can afford $18-20 an hour

At this rate, twenty dollars an hour is the new twelve. So much for your living wage and Dumb and Dumber in office, wokelibs.

Sorry but we don’t elect kings for office. You should probably move to North Korea.

It’s probably more of a permitting issue. Likely waiting for occupancy permit

It’s 100% the issue. City of Miami’s permit issuing speed is slower than any other jurisdiction in the entire county, including Miami-Dade county itself. It’s a joke.

As much as people complain when the only other alternatives down here are crap (unless it’s Winn-Dixie taking up a Lucky’s Market, etc.), you can never have too many Publix stores.
