New 315,000 square-foot building to include Zara, Topshop Topman, Pomellato, Under Armour other retailers and restaurants.
Planned for a late 2017 opening, Aventura Mall's new three-level, 315,000 square-foot addition is taking shape on the east side of the shopping mall. The new space is designed to create an open exchange between the indoors and outdoors, providing a vibrant shopping and dining experience. The new wing includes a nearly 93-foot tall sculpture by renowned Belgian artist Carsten Höller that Aventura Mall guests will be able to slide down.
In the new wing will be a two-level Topshop Topman store, noting the British brand's coming to Miami, Florida. The new section also will feature the much-anticipated return of Zara to Aventura Mall. The 34,000+ square-foot, a two-level store will include an array of men's, women's and children's collections. Pomellato and Under Armour also will open on the wing.
Designed by famous architect Carlos Zapata, the wing's three key design points – transparency, connectivity, and integration – will provide a unique experience for customers. An 84-foot by 50-foot glass wall at the entrance will give panoramic views of the surrounding scene. A continuous 350-foot skylight runs the width of the wing, providing daylighting and beautiful views of the rooftop terrace.
An open-air Piazza will be defined by eye-catching design and populated by contemporary art, people, and nature. It will provide dining experiences from an array of inviting restaurants and cafes, including CVI.CHE 105, Pubbelly Sushi, Serafina, Blue Bottle, Harry's Pizzeria, and more to come.
