CEO AND PRESIDENT, DACRA
More than 20 boutiques—including shops for Loewe, Miu Miu, and Harry Winston—have opened so far this year in Robins’s Miami Design District development, and according to the Miami Herald, 60 more stores and restaurants are set to to open by mid-2017. Celebrating architects for talent, not necessarily name recognition—starchitects aren’t the name of the game here—the growing neighborhood recently welcomed a garage designed by firms Leong Leong and Iwamoto Scott; a building by firm Arranda Lasch is nearing completion; and a plaza by Johnston Marklee is planned. In April, Robins announced leasing on Phase III of the project. At this rate, a Phase IV wouldn’t be farfetched.
