Two new retail and restaurant buildings just off Lincoln Road and adjacent to Lincoln Lane North - both buildings sporting spanky contemporary designs - are fast on their way to completion. We found construction shots on exMiami. Above, Yard House, a restaurant, is building its own building at 1681 Lenox Avenue with multiple storefronts and a little plaza with a fountain visible from Lincoln Road. A few blocks to the east, on 17th street, the 1000 Building by Arquitectonica is three levels of retail topped by a restaurant with outdoor seating and a striking exterior staircase.
But that's not all, dear readers... exMiami mentions two additional mystery projects in the planning stages:
-The Carib Theater at 230 Lincoln Road is proposed to be rebuilt as a small four story shopping center with 62,000 sf. It was originally built in 1950 and designed by Michael DeAngelis and Roy France. It has been shuttered for 25 years. -The former Eastern Air Terminal (adj.Wings building) off Lincoln Road is proposed to be restored and rebuilt, with the parking lot converted into an outdoor seating area. However, the owners have proposed similar restoration projects in the past that were never built
Frankly, that's all we know. If you've got the inside scoop of the Carib redo, or that Eastern Air Terminal, please do, give us a holla'.

UPDATE: The Yard House building is actually being built by a company called Merchants' National Properties, Inc. and being leased entirely to Yard House.
