Cincinnati -- Macy’s announced an agreement for Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s stores to anchor the new Mall at Miami Worldcenter, to be built in downtown Miami. Current plans call for the stores to open in fall 2016.
Miami Worldcenter, a major mixed-use project with retail, hotel, residential and convention space, is being planned by The Forbes Company and Taubman Centers.
The development is located to attract both resident and tourist customers, with easy access to interstate highways and rail, museums, The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, American Airlines Arena and the Port of Miami cruise ship terminals.
The Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s stores – each on three levels – will anchor the north and south ends of the retail mall, respectively.
