Gigantic Mall Coming to Downtown Miami: Brickell CitiCentre

A massive new mega mall is planned for downtown Miami. Brickell CitiCentre consisting of more than five towers will rise from the land bordered by Brickell on the East, Southwest 1st Ave. to the west and between Southwest 8th and Southwest 6th St.

The complex will be bigger than the Dolphin Mall's 1.4 million square feet of retail space, bigger that Sawgrass Mills Mall -- in fact about double the size of Sawgrass -- at 4 million square feet.

"This is the biggest private work project in the U.S. this year", said Miami City Commissioner Marc Sarnoff. "It's going to bring Miami into the epicenter of retail shopping and that includes Coral Gables and even Aventura."

The project will create 1,700 construction jobs every year for the four years it will take to complete construction. When it's finished there will be 3,800 permanent full time jobs.

The CityCentre will house not only retail shopping but office space, apartments or condos, and a hotel.

"This is the biggest thing to happen in Miami in about 12 years," Sarnoff said.
