A rather psychedelic new gym designed by one of Miami's boldest young architects has just opened on Lincoln Road. Manuel Clavel Rojo of Clavel Arquitectos, perhaps best known locally for designing part of the surreal Museum Garage in the Design District (the section with the cars suspended off the side), has designed the brand-new Miami incarnation of Gymage, a Madrid-based gym and "lifestyle resort."
It's literally a bank AND a cafe, along with a WeWork-esque workspace in the back. I noticed it a few months ago while it was under construction. Since then, it just opened, preceded by another location on Miracle Mile as well. Read on for more pictures.
Boy, Lincoln Road has really jumped the shark. Look what's coming: Capital One Bank, known for its silly but rather jarringly un-Lincoln Road-ish "What's in Your Wallet?" commercials is apparently opening a cafe on Lincoln Road. Signage with the bank's logo and the word 'cafe' is clearly visible at the construction site.
The much talked about new Ross Dress for Less has opened on Lincoln Road in South Beach in its dramatic but rather mall-like new building, and here it is. Some people think it's just the latest symbol of the mall-ification of Lincoln Road, others a great place for inexpensive clothing in the middle of expensive Miami Beach, better than the abandoned frontage that had occupied that site (the long-gone Caribe Theatre) for years, or a cheap tourist magnet. Whatever you think, check out these photos of the new place. Yay or nay? Let us know in the comments.
The large former Design Within Reach space next to Books & Books, in the rear of Lincoln Road's historic Sterling Building, is slated to become a food hall called the Sterling Market. One of the future tenants, Mr. Bing, the Wynwood shaved ice cream parlor, has already opened in a temporary fashion near the front of the space.
