Total Wine Coming To Fifth & Alton Shopping Center In South Beach

South Beach is finally getting a giant liquor store to help alleviate the shortage of places to buy alcohol in the area.

Total Wine & More is set to open a 19,076-square-foot store in the Fifth & Alton shopping center. The space was recently occupied by Staples, which is closing stores amid a slowdown in the office supply business.

Fifth & Alton was developed by SkyRise developer Jeff Berkowitz and a partner in 2009. It features Britto artwork in front – a trademark of Berkowitz projects. The shopping center was sold to EDENS in 2012.
