Miami’s booming food hall scene—2017’s version of a food court—continues to expand, with the latest news coming from the under-construction MiamiCentral, an 11-acre mixed-use project encompassing residences, office space, retail, and a public transit hub for Brightline Express Train Station.
Central Fare, which had planned to open this Fall, is now targeting Spring 2018, per the developer, and has chosen McKenzie as its executive architect and general contractor.
The 50,000-square-foot space in downtown Miami will feature over 20 vendors, including a boutique coffee shop called Parliament and Rosetta Bakery, which has a location in South Beach. There will also be a 10,000-square-foot anchor restaurant by the Voltaggio brothers that’s expecting to open in the spring.
“We’re excited to be a part of this beautiful, pioneering lifestyle project in the heart of Downtown Miami, which hundreds of thousands of people are expected to visit on a yearly basis,” said McKenzie firm owner and CEO Gavin McKenzie.
Other new food hall concepts across the city include the newly opened 1-800-LUCKY in Wynwood, the soon-to-open La Centrale in Brickell City Centre, Treats Food Hall in Aventura, The Lincoln Eatery by Lincoln Road, and a Timeout Market in South Beach.
