In Miami, shopping isn’t just a pastime, it’s a sport. While some are in it for the hunt for great deals, others want the ultimate star treatment from high-end fashion brands. If you want to play in the big leagues, then these shopping districts are where you should start.
The Miami Design District is a neighborhood dedicated to innovative fashion, design, architecture, and dining. This once-overlooked area of Miami has been transformed into a glamorous international luxury shopping destination in just a few short years; it is a place where residents and visitors alike can shop for their favorite brands while admiring the Miami Modern architecture that lines the halls and streets of this beautiful neighborhood-like mall. The Miami Design District has no plans of slowing down its development efforts, either. One hundred new stores are slated to open over the next two years, and there will ultimately be a 30-foot-wide pedestrian mall running north and south from 38th to 42nd street.
Ranked as one of the most-visited retail destinations in America, the Aventura Mall is anchored by Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom, and Macy’s and features luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton, Cartier, Burberry, REDValentino, Philipp Plein, Sandro, Emilio Pucci, Tiffany & Co., and more. To further expand its retail offerings, Aventura Mall will undergo a significant expansion that will include a new three-level, 241,000-square-foot retail wing and parking garage.
