UPDATE: 02/09/2016, 12:50 p.m. Apple will launch its largest store in Florida at the upcoming Brickell City Centre, sources told The Real Deal.

The Apple store will be among about 70 stores and restaurants at the open-air shopping center set to open this fall, including luxury boutiques Valentino and Chopard.

Swire Properties, Whitman Family Development and Simon Property Group are co-developing the 500,000-square-foot center that will feature a “climate ribbon.” The 1,000-foot-long twisted strip of steel and glass is meant to block rain and focus breezes through the retail areas, replacing air conditioning.

An Apple spokesperson said the company “hasn’t made any announcements about a store at that location,” and a Swire spokesperson declined to comment regarding Apple.

Apple already operates several stores in South Florida, including on Lincoln Road in Miami Beach, at Aventura Mall, Dadeland Mall and the Falls.

At Brickell City Centre, other tenants announced in January include:

  • Apparel: Armani Collezioni, BDBA, Crocus, Intermix, Koko & Palenki, LIVE!, Orlebar Brown, Rhythm of Grace, REISS, SportsAction, Sundek, 120% Lino, In-Sight
  • Fashion and personal accessories: Addict, Audemars Piguet, Caudalie, Designer Eyes, Font, Italia Independent, Kendra Scott, Kreations, Leetal Kalmanson, Nars, Pandora, Richard Mille, Westime
  • Dining: American Harvest, Big Easy Winebar & Grill, Calissons du Roy René, DAVIDsTEA, Dr Smood, Häagen-Dazs, Luke’s Lobster, Santa Fe, Taco Chic
  • Arts and services: AT&T, Bojanini Art Gallery, Brickell Nail Bar, Musart, Sean Donaldson Hair

In November, the developers announced they had signed Acqua di Parma, IRO, Stuart Weitzman, Coach and Porsche Design, as well as Michele Lopriore, Mirto, Adolfo Dominguez, Capritouch, Santa Maria Novella, Diptyque and Nest Casa. Those tenants will join eateries at Brickell City Centre such as Pubbelly Sushi, Pasión del Cielo, Quinto La Huella and Sugar; and retailers that include Giuseppe Zanotti Design, La Perla, Bally; European brands Ted Baker, Agent Provocateur, 100 % Capri, Addict, Vilebrequin, APM Monaco, Cole Haan, lululemon, Illesteva, Harmont & Blaine and OndadeMar; as well as designer boutiques Valentino and Chopard.

Luxury stores will be located on the first floor, with premium and contemporary retailers on the second and third floors. The shopping component, anchored by a three-floor Saks Fifth Avenue, will include street-level access to an underground two-story garage.

When completed this year, Brickell City Centre will have two condominium towers, two Class A office buildings, and its EAST, Miami Hotel. The development is valued at $1.05 billion.
