Other confirmed companies at the development include two food and beverage concepts opening soon by Michelin-star Chef Michael Beltran, Brasserie Laurel and El Vecino; Chicago’s Maple & Ash and Etta restaurants and Sephora, Bowlero and Lucid Motors. These seven concepts and the development’s newest tenant total approximately 110,000 square feet of leased retail space at Miami Worldcenter.
“The addition of Sports & Social to our tenant mix proves that there will be something for everyone at Miami Worldcenter,” Nitin Motwani says, Managing Partner of Miami Worldcenter Associates. “Every restaurant and store that will open at Miami Worldcenter is carefully selected to ensure the ultimate live-work-play experience that appeals to Downtown Miami’s growing residential and commercial population.”
