Midtown Miami’s New Trader Joe’s Is Almost Ready To Open

Trader Joe's roomy new Midtown Miami store, which began construction at Gio Midtown back last June, is racing toward completion, as can be seen by a quick stroll by the new space. Peek in the window, and the store looks practically, almost, just barely complete. All that's seemingly missing is perhaps the last of the chain's signature visual flourishes, taking the plastic off the cash registers, and well, stocking the shelves, and boom. Although the store (#794) still hasn't announced an official opening date, the Big Bubble would not be shocked if it happens in the next week or two. Read on for a few interior photos, including a glimpse of the majorly big mural in the soaring entry.

Elegant South Grove Courtyard House Makes a Statement for $4 Million

In this real estate market, prices keep rising and rising to a point where it's almost embarrassing to write about a property when in the back of your mind you keep thinking "you get THAT for THAT???" This is not one of those houses. Compared to some of the hovels on offer in Miami Beach for literally the exact same price, this rather stately and elegant home in South Coconut Grove doesn't feel like its price, a cool $4 million, is extravagantly out of step with what's on offer.

Vintage Newsreels from the ’80s Tell the Story of a Booming Miami.

The 1980 roared in Miami. Not only was the city's image and identity transformed in ways both good and bad, mixing global glamour with global intrigue, but the city itself changed physically. In that decade Greater Miami saw a building boom, blending luxury condo towers with avant-garde architecture, new public amenities and institutions, and a flood of stylish, luxury hotels catering to different kinds of travelers than the old beachside hostelries of earlier.

Inside Miami’s Adrienne Arsht Estate, On The Market For An Eye-Watering $150 Million

When the exquisitely wealthy businesswoman and philanthropist Adrienne Arsht listed her magnificent and massive Miami estate for sale in January, spectacularly priced at $150 million, it was a news item significant enough to command splashy spreads on the covers of the Miami Herald and the Wall Street Journal's Mansion section. To put it mildly, it was a major, major news item, not just because it could set a new record for the most expensive residential sale in South Florida, but because of the size, prominence, and history of the property itself.

Amtrak Is Finally Not Ignoring Miami Airport Station’s Existence, Even Though Its Trains Have Fit Perfectly Fine For Years

A fully built-out train depot, including ticket counters, a waiting room, dedicated bathrooms, various other such spaces tailor-made for Amtrak's use, and direct links to a bevy of other transportation options, neglected to collect mothballs by Amtrak for an incredible seven years, may finally be put to use. When the Miami Intermodal Center, also known as the Miami Airport Station (even though technically it's a depot) was completed back in 2015, Amtrak realized a little late that the platforms were too short. Due to what was basically just a mammoth screw-up, the rear end of an Amtrak train would have to stick way out into traffic going along NW 25th Street like a one-thousand-one-hundred-foot-long, metal Kim Kardashian.

Giant Miami Studio Has a Dining Table That Seats Twenty, a Bed in The Corner, and a Futon

Here's a rather pretty space, on the top floor of the Bank, a small condo tower near the corner of Biscayne Boulevard and NE 79th Street that, as the name suggests, used to be a bank. Listed for $750,000 and the biggest penthouse in the building, it was probably once a normal 1,600-foot apartment... you know, with bedrooms and stuff, but at some point converted into just one big room. It's a huge studio.

111-Year-Old Estate of Coconut Grove’s Founding Family Lists for $12.9M

With just over one acre of land on South Bayshore Drive, the rambling estate of John T. Peacock, a member of Coconut Grove's founding Peacock family, this 111-year-old historic pile is on an unusually large piece of land for a property in the heart of the Grove. Overlooking Kennedy Park, and an old sheltered inlet that practically ends at its front gate, the listing is asking for a healthy $12.9 million.

The Penthouse at Miami’s Iconic Midcentury Palm Bay Club Lists for $2.2 Million

The legendary Palm Bay Club had its glorious halcyon days in the 1960s, and '70s, when it was the epitome of glamour for the jet-set cafe society glitterati of its day. Not only did residents have to be rich, but they had to be a lot of fun, according to its creator Connie Dinkler.

A Fake Pool in The Miami Design District is Taunting You During the Summer Olympics

Omega, the luxury watch brand, is celebrating the 2021 Olympics in Tokyo, which began today, by dressing up their store in the Miami Design District and scattering big Olympic-themed kchotchkies around the neighborhood. One of those is a diorama-like display near the shape of a giant fake pool meant to be an ode to Olympic swimming. Out in the sweltering Miami heat, without water, is it just a big blue tease?
