Lennar Commercial and Codina Partners have begun construction on the first phase of the Shops at Downtown Doral, where they plan to feature locally-owned restaurants and retailers on Main Street, including two concepts by Bulla – a gastrobar and a ceviche restaurant, and Dragonfly, a robata grill and sushi lounge. The first wave of retailers, scheduled to open in fall 2015, include Continental Bank, Freddo Gelato and OXXO dry cleaners, the companies said.
A mixed-use, phased project to be developed over the next five to seven years, Downtown Doral spans from N.W. 87th Avenue to 79th Avenue and from N.W. 54th Street to the White Course at Doral.
When completed, 120-acre Downtown Doral will have 2,840 residential units, including luxury condominiums, townhouses and apartments; one million square feet of Class A office space, retail and restaurants; a 60,000 square foot Doral Government Center; a K-5 charter school and Downtown Doral Park, a three-acre park with a pavilion and benches designed by artist Michele Oka Doner.
