According to WPLG Channel 10 News, city of Miami commissioners approved plans to move forward with the Miami World Center, a 30 acre multi-use complex that will reshape the downtown area and will cost developers $2 billion.
The complex is expected to bring in a million square feet of new retail space to the area. While many of the tenants have yet to sign leases or announced their presence at the complex, Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s have revealed they will be the two anchor tenants to the development which will likely mean that other major retailers will be lining up to join them in them there.
In addition, the property will have a Marriot Marquis Hotel (one of the higher-end brands for the Marriot hotel group) that will have 1,800 rooms, making it one of the largest hotels in the city. The center will also feature 600,000 square feet of meeting and event space, a big boon for downtown as Miami has long been in need of more convention space as it has far less square feet of convention space than many other major cities.
The Miami World Center project is one of the largest development projects in the United States and is expected to create 20,000 construction jobs and 14,000 other jobs after the creation. Construction is expected to take several years and will open up in several phases.
