Valentino, a designer which recently opened a store in the Design District, has signed a deal to open another location in Brickell City Centre.
The Italian fashion house is the first of a wave of new stores that will be announced in the coming week for Brickell City Centre. Jewelry designer Chopard also announced a lease at City Centre today. Both will open in Fall of 2016.
In the coming week, Brickell City centre will announce other new tenants, including:
A major NYC-based contemporary women’s apparel retailer
An American designer of men and women’s footwear
An international yoga and fitness apparel chain
A Colombian swimwear brand
In total, 450,000 out of 500,000 square feet in the mall are in advanced negotiations to be leased. Many stores will be opening their first locations in the U.S.
Valentino and Chopard will be located on the street-accessible ground floor of the center, where other luxury retailers will be located. Premium and contemporary retailers will be the emphasis on the second and third floors, along with a mix of beauty, home decor, jewelry, apparel and other retailers.
Two condominium towers, two Class A office buildings, and an EAST hotel remain on track to begin opening at the end of 2015.
