Trader Joe’s Is Coming To Midtown Miami’s New Gio Building

Midtown Miami is getting a Trader Joe’s.

The grocery chain with a cult-like following has filed plans to begin building a store there, according to a permit application seen by The Next Miami.

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

In total, Trader Joe’s will be building out a space that is 14,795 square feet, the permit states.

Total cost of construction for the new store is estimated at $2.2 million.

Trader Joe’s also commenced construction this week on another new store in Coral Gables, according to a filing recorded on February 8.

It isn’t the only organic-oriented grocery coming to the Midtown area.

At the Nema tower planned a few blocks away, a nationally renowned organic supermarket chain has signed a lease to occupy around 48,590 square feet of space – more than triple the size of Trader Joe’s.

The Nema organic store will include 38,950 square feet of ground floor retail and 8,590 square foot mezzanine indoor seating area.

Like people are gonna ride bikes to a supermarket to grocery shop lmao

This is a world where single childless people buy SUVs. Heaven forbid they should cram their lives into a Mustang, let alone ride a freaking bike to go shopping.

Have you ever been to Miami Beach? More people walk+bike than drive to super markets, especially in South Beach. Including the Trader Joe’s there.

South beach is very different from the rest of Miami… truly is the only walkable area down here

Been there, lived there, plenty still drive and this new location isn’t Miami Beach. You ever been there? You should know all this.

I live in the urban core of Miami and bike to/from buying groceries. It’s not as laughable as you think once you get out of your suburban mindset.

It is laughable, because what you’re doing is a joke. You must be going to the store 4X a week. Who the heck with a real job and a life has time or desire for that? Get a real world mindset.

Lots of assumptions being made about another person’s life. Sounds like you’re just insecure about your own situation.

Metromover…from School Board up to 36th. A loop utilizing N. Miami, NW 2nd, or NW 5th would really connect the area to the rest of the city.

Midtown received $169 from the City and County to build parking garages that were supposed to have free parking. Bait and switch.

Trader Joes is great, lots of fresh, organic produce and goods at a much lower cost than Whole Foods or Publix.

You really haven’t been to a Trader Joe’s in a long time. Their produce isn’t all wrapped in plastic any more than other grocery stores. They’re actively committed to reducing packaging waste, too. Do some research.
