Slab Poured For Another Giant Ross Department Store In Downtown Miami, New WeWork Also Coming

Contractors just completed a slab pour for a large new Ross Dress For Less department store in downtown Miami.

The new store will be at the base of the Vizcayne condo towers in space that has been vacant since it was built.

Video uploaded to social media by contractor Florida Concrete Unlimited shows a slab being poured for the new store.

According to a construction permit, the new Ross store will have 26,898 square feet of space with occupancy for 823 people.

The estimated cost of construction is listed at $2.2 million.

WeWork appears to be building out a large commercial space at Vizcayne under a separate construction permit.

The second permit was just applied for in May and is still in review.

According to the permit for the WeWork affiliate, a total of 20,000 square feet will be built out at a cost of $2 million.

Ross will be located on the north side of the Vizcayne complex, with WeWork on the south side.

It’s on Midtown not Overtown. There no Target on Overtown. Target is close to Wyndwood.

I’d argue that it is the downtown quadrant of Overtown. Still part of Overtown, yes, but part of Miami’s central downtown core. The way I see it, if you can ride the MetroMover to your destination, then you are in Downtown Miami (Brickell, Park West, Overtown east of I-95, Arts & Entertainment District and Edgewater)

Real Miami (I.e working class people that actually live normal lives and own small businesses). I do not understand the need to bash people just because they do not fit the posh mold that that you demand all the world to be like. People and places evolve with time, and like it or not Miami is a city with a great proportion of immigrants which means that the city will have its areas that are rough around the edges.

Even the most “posh” cities like Hong Kong are jammed pack full of apartment blocks that would make even the mildest Melo detractor sick to the stomach. Hong Hong is full of neighborhoods that do not reflect the glitz and the glamour of the Victoria harbor skyline as does Miami.

I see the quotes, but Vizcayne is hardly luxury. CVS was the first nail in this buildings coffin to crap. Then there was porn being shot…

Does this portend the long delayed redevelopment of 100 Biscayne ?? 😉

Exactly my thoughts. Will they move here?

Doubtful. Ross is probably relocating because they got a sweet deal on a site that’s sat vacant for over a decade.

I though that was what moving into the former Macy’s/Burdine’s building was for, but I guess even Ross got sick of Mana. If that was temporary and they’re moving there, more potential for the historic core.

Prime locations aren’t meant for everyone just like expensive cars aren’t meant for everyone. They are all meant for whom can afford that.

LOL, first CVS and now Ross. As if Everglades on the Bay/Vizcayne already didn’t suck. The historic Everglades Hotel could have been restored and carried a flag like St. Regis and would’ve been a far better catalyst for downtown than these condos that are only full after being rental for so long.

A studio at Vizcayne goes for closer to $2000 per month now if you’re renting it.

Yeah that space has been vacant since it was finished like in 2005. At one time you could look into it and see how empty it was
