Bal Harbour Shops vs. the Design District

on Oct 29, 2014 in Shopping

From 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.

It is free to go to the High Line, which definitely is a plus in a city that is quite pricey. There are several gardens, food vendors and mobile shops along the High Line.
