Zara and Mac Cosmetics are launching stores at Brickell City Centre this fall, joining dozens of other shops and restaurants that have already opened at the new open-air mall. 

Zara will have a two-story store, Brickell City Centre announced on Tuesday. The popular Spanish apparel store already has locations on Lincoln Road in Miami Beach and at Dadeland Mall.

Years in the making, Brickell City Centre’s retail center opened in November, bringing 500,000 square feet of new retail and restaurant offerings to Miami’s urban core.

Due to construction delays, only anchor tenant Saks Fifth Avenue and about a dozen of the 120 planned stores opened initially. At the time, developer Swire Properties and retail co-developers Simon Property Group and Whitman Family Development said 92 percent of the retail space was committed and 88 stores were under construction.

Today, 68 stores have opened, according to a spokesperson, as well as several restaurants, including Big Easy Winebar & Grill, Häagen-Dazs, Luke’s Lobster, Pubbelly Sushi and Tacology.

Brickell City Centre’s retail component, a centerpiece of the overall $1.05 billion mixed-use project, spans three levels of shops and two levels of underground parking. The first shopping level is geared to luxury stores like Armani Collezioni, Chopard and Kiton, with premium and contemporary retailers on the second and third floors.

Among the shops already open or set to open: Apple, Ted Baker, Intermix, Stuart Weitzman, Audemars Piguet, IRO, Bally, Giuseppe Zanoti, Hugo Boss, Intermix, Illesteva and Lululemon. Apple, with locations on Lincoln Road, the Falls, Dadeland Mall and Aventura Mall, is expected to be opening its largest Florida store at BCC.

“We think excellent tenants like these will make us a destination,” Debra Overholt, vice president of retail for Swire Properties previously told The Real Deal. The retail center hopes to draw on the 100,000 people who work in the Brickell area, as well as all the condo residents and tourists, she said.

Cinemex had aimed to open CMX theater in time for the holidays, but has not yet completed its construction. The dine-in movie theater will be the first in the U.S. for the Mexico-based chain.

La Centrale, an Italian food hall, will open this fall, spanning 38,000 square feet and three floors at northeast end of the mall. It will feature restaurants, an enoteca (wine store), cooking school and retail space.

Saks Fifth Avenue will also have the first Casa Tua Food Hall, which will open on the first floor, in the spring or summer, offering gourmet Italian food to eat on-site as well as a market, Ramona Messore, vice president and store manager previously told TRD. On the third floor will be “a Casa Tua resto bar, offering cooking classes and wine tastings, as a spin-off of what they have in Miami [Beach],” Messore said.

The project is certified LEED Gold and features the Climate Ribbon, a $30 million, 1,000-foot long twisted strip of steel, glass and fabric. The shopping center connects with Brickell City Centre’s two condo towers Reach and Rise, two office buidings and its hotel East, Miami. — Ina Cordle
