Metropica Development LLC recruited Urban Outfitters as a tenant as the company prepares to start construction of the retail component of the Metropica mixed-used development in Sunrise.
Urban Outfitters, an apparel retailer, agreed to lease 8,000 square feet of a 280,000-square-foot retail portion of Metropica.
Metropica Development LLC, led by CEO Joseph Kavana, will start the initial phase of construction of Metropica’s retail space in the April-June period and expects to finish in the fourth quarter of 2019.
In addition to Urban Outfitters, retail tenants of Metropica will include Anthropologie, City Works Eatery & Pour House, Cru Wine Bar, Fogo de Chao, Genuine Pizza, iPic Theaters, Kendra Scott Jewelry and Sugarboo & Co.
Construction workers recently topped off the 263-unit Metropica One condominium at the mixed-use development, which is 65 percent presold. The condo previously was named YOO at Metropica.
The Metropica development, valued at $1.5 billion, will include a hotel, 2,250 residences, 485,000 square feet of retail-store space and 650,000 square feet of office space. [South Florida Business Journal] – Mike Seemuth
