December 06, 2013
Cincinnati-based Macy’s Inc. recently 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. The Forbes Co. and Taubman Centers Inc. is planning Miami Worldcenter, a major mixed-use project with retail, hotel, residential and convention space. The Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s stores—each on three levels—will anchor the North and South ends of the retail mall, respectively. Macy’s will occupy a 195,000-sq.-ft. store, while Bloomingdale’s will occupy 120,000 sq. ft. Macy’s currently operates 27 stores in the Miami-Palm Beach market, and Bloomingdale’s currently operates four full-line stores and two Bloomingdale’s Outlet stores in the Miami-Palm Beach market. Macy’s Inc. currently operates approximately 840 department stores in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Guam and Puerto Rico under the names of Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s.
