Aventura Mall Featured in WWD

on Dec 19, 2014 in Shopping

Aventura Mall was recently included in a Women’s Wear Daily story on mall holiday traffic, which was part of a special section distributed at the International Conference of Shopping Centers convention. For the piece, WWD Retail Editor David Moin spoke with Jackie Soffer, Co-Chairman and CEO of Turnberry Associates, owner and manager of Aventura Mall.

Bal Harbour Shops vs. the Design District

on Oct 29, 2014 in Shopping

From Departures.com: For decades the Whitman family–owned Bal Harbour Shops stood as an impenetrable fortress of high fashion, ruling over its occupants with a diamond fist. Until recently, that is, when labels like Louis Vuitton, Céline and Dior led a mass exodus to the burgeoning Design District and rewrote the rules for retailers in Miami. Listen carefully. Beneath the murmuring surf and rustling palms are less soothing sounds: Construction cranes, not flamingos. Concrete mixers pouring condos, not plastic buckets shaping sand castles. Sniper fire drowning out children’s laughter. Sniper fire? Miami’s sultry calm deceives. A guerrilla war rages, fueled by the city’s epochal growth. In the last dozen years or so, inspired in no small part by Miami’s re-branding as a winter wonderland for the international art elite, tidal waves of wealth have washed up here: Latin-Americans­ coming...
