What's Up With Metromall, And The Other Downtown Arcades?

New, 7 comments

This summer, Curbed Miami took a poke around Downtown Miami's 'hidden shopping arcades,' a large network of through-block retail passageways in Miami's urban core ranging from the relatively high-style Seybold Building's arcade to much more decrepit places like the multi-story Miami Metromall, which the Miami Herald poked around too. More recently, Curbed reader and frequent Curbed Miami Flickr Pool contributor Phillip Pessar noticed that Metromall has shuttered, for unknown reasons. As urban retail becomes a more significant aspect of Miami's built environment, especially in areas like the Design District, Brickell, and Lincoln Road, and Downtown continues its economic resurgence with more residents and a rapidly improving restaurant scene, it's high time that Downtown's shopping arcades see a revival.
