Developer Craig Robins, who has helped transform the Design
District
over the last two decades, has plans to turn the area into
what is billed as SoHo south. Robins has spent more than $40 million
this year to buy 10 more properties in the area, with the intention of
bringing in loft apartments, hotels and luxury retailers. “By having us
own so much contiguous property, the neighborhood is protected from
becoming over-commercialized,” Robins said. “We want to build a
beautiful neighborhood with diverse architectural structures and
businesses.” [Miami
