Target & Aldi Coming To Block 55 Across From Virgin Train’s MiamiCentral, With 506 Apartments Above

Block 55, the Overtown megaproject across from Virgin Train’s 3 MiamiCentral, has announced that Target will be among the first tenants, according to the Herald.

Target will occupy 51,088 square feet on the ground floor. That is smaller than a store in Midtown Miami (141,114 square feet), but bigger than the new South Beach Target (32,900 square feet). The new  Target will also have a CVS Pharmacy and a Starbucks.

Dave & Busters is also shown on a leasing plan for the building (pdf).

Other retailers shown include Aldi (which the developer told the Herald is a formal interest), Ross, Ulta, Burlington, and Youfit.

In total, the project will include 355,000 square feet of retail space,  around 1,050 parking spaces and 506 apartment units.

At the ground floor will be restaurants with outdoor seating facing Sawyer’s Walk, a public park which the developer is rebuilding.

Construction is expected to begin in March 2020, with retail completion in 24 months. The residential component will be completed six months later.

John Moriarty & Associates, which was one of the contractors for Brickell City Centre, is expected to be the contractor for Block 55. Arquitectonica is the architect.

Miami’s Urban Development Review Board will review the project at a meeting next week.
