Hold onto your iPhones: Apple is set to open a new store at Brickell City Centre, the under-construction $1.05 billion development in the heart of Brickell, according to a source with knowledge of the deal.
Apple didn’t confirm the news. But it hardly denied it either. “We haven’t made any announcements about a store at that location,” the tech company said in a short statement.
A spokeswoman for the developers of Brickell City said she could not comment.
Never miss a local story.
Apple operates several stores in the Miami area with locations in Dadeland, Aventura, the Falls and Lincoln Road. (That South Beach property was part of a $370 million sale to a Spanish billionaire last year.)
Brickell City Centre’s 500,000-square-foot shopping center will open in the fall of 2016 with about 70 stores and restaurants. It is anchored by department store Saks Fifth Avenue. Other announced tenants include dine-in movie theater Cinemex and luxury retailers Valentino and Chopard. Also part of the project are condo towers, a hotel and office buildings.
