Trésor | Coral Gables

Jewelry store Trésor is opening another location near the Shops at Merrick Park at the Astor Companies’ mixed-use Merrick Manor project underway in Coral Gables.

The 10-story buiding at 301 Altara Avenue will feature 227 residences and nearly 20,000 square feet of retail space. It’s set to open in the first quarter of 2019.

The family run jeweler currently operates out of a store in downtown Miami’s jewelry district. It bought a 1,500-square-foot commercial unit on the ground floor of the project for an undisclosed price. Roza H. Radkiewicz of Astor Real Estate Group arranged the deal.

The Gym Fort Lauderdale Beach | Fort Lauderdale

The Gallery at Beach Place just buffed up its tenant roster.

The Gym Fort Lauderdale Beach inked a 5,000-square-foot lease on the first floor of the mall at 17 South Fort Lauderdale Beach Boulevard. Continental Real Estate Companies’ Rafael Romero and Ariel Bernstein represented Thor Equities.

Tenants include Lulu’s Bait Shack, Maui Nix Surf Shop, CVS, Escapology, Crocs, Häagen Dazs and Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.

The open-air retail property is owned by Thor Equities and sits at the entrance of the 19-story Marriott’s BeachPlace Towers hotel. The property was recently renovated.

The Gym Fort Lauderdale Beach is relocating from the the Aquatic Center Plaza at 435 South Fort Lauderdale Beach Boulevard/ 2933 Southeast Fifth Street, which traded hands for $18.7 million last year. The Aquatic Center is expected to be redeveloped into a hotel.

Warby Parker | Boca Raton

Warby Parker expanded to Palm Beach County.

The eyewear retailer recently opened a 900-square-foot store at Town Center at Boca Raton, marking its fourth location in Florida. The first standalone location in South Florida opened in 2013 in Wynwood. It also has locations in Coconut Grove and Tampa.

The clicks-to-bricks store joins tenants at the high-end mall such as Apple, Blue Martini and Louis Vuitton. Simon Property Group owns Town Center, at 6000 Glades Road.
