Ross Dress For Less Opens 30,000 SF Store In Miami’s Urban Core

Oct 26, 2020 No Comments by

Ross Dress for Less, the largest off-price apparel and home fashion chain in the United States, opened a new store in Miami’s urban core west of downtown Miami.

The opening of Ross Dress for Less brings an additional 30,000 square feet of first-quality, in-season, name brand and designer apparel, accessories, footwear, and home fashions to the newly-opened River Landing Shops & Residences on the Miami River. The national retailer will provide a convenient location for residents in downtown Miami, Little Havana, the Health District, and other communities along the Miami River.

The addition of Ross brings River Landing to a 75 percent occupancy rate. Ross Dress for Less follows Hobby Lobby, Burlington Stores, Five Below, Chase Bank & AT&T in opening new stores at River Landing earlier this month. Planet Fitness, TJ Maxx, Old Navy, Chick-Fil-A and New York’s famous Ficelles Bakery plan to open in the coming weeks and months.

River Landing is the recently completed the $452 million, 8.14-acre mixed-use project. The sprawling 2.2 million-square-foot development features retail, office, apartments, a landscaped riverwalk, green spaces for enjoyment, cultural events, and boat docks. River Landing, which has injected life into a long-forgotten pocket of Miami, anchors the up-and-coming Mid River District.


“Bringing acclaimed national retailers to the Miami River has been part of our vision for River Landing since we first started developing the project in 2011, when we first contracted with the old Mahi Shrine Auditorium site,” said Coralee Penabad, Co-Principal of Urban-X Group in Miami, the developer behind River Landing. “From the beginning, we envisioned a vibrant and dynamic development that would unlock the city’s riverfront culture for all of Miami. Ross Dress for Less is a key component of this vision and we are excited to invite and welcome the community to experience Miami’s riverfront while shopping, dining, working, and relaxing.”

River Landing is in talks with regional and national retailers to occupy the remaining space available and plans to announce new tenants in the coming months. The developer is currently negotiating with several restaurants interested in opening a location in River Landing’s restaurant row in 2021, when the economy is expected to normalize. River Landing has incorporated some changes recently such as curbside pick-up spaces for tenants to meet customer demand while promoting social distancing.

River Landing is located steps away from the Health District, with a daytime population of more than 50,000. Strategically located between downtown Miami and Miami International Airport, River Landing will help meet the growing demand for quality discount retail, grocery, banking, and lifestyle services. It is one of the few retail, office, and residential developments that are accessible by boat in Miami.

By incorporating the Miami River into the project, River Landing will offer shoppers an experience that can’t be replicated by online shopping. The new development offers a large open, outdoor atrium that connects the retail stores and creates a communal space for residents and visitors to enjoy while maintaining social distancing. Its design merges interior and exterior environments, allowing retailers to extend into the riverfront patio and atrium spaces to enhance the overall customer experience.

The mixed-use development consists of approximately 345,000 square feet of retail/commercial space, 135,000 square feet of office, 528 market-rate apartments, more than 2,000 parking spaces and the 25-foot-wide riverwalk. A 25,500-square-foot restaurant raw can be divided into seven concept restaurants, including from fine dining to casual and family-style outlets.

River Landing is accessible by Miami-Dade’s main thoroughfares: Interstate 95 and State Road 836. The complex has proximity to two Metrorail stations and the rapid transit system that connects all the major hospitals and research centers to Downtown Miami, East Kendall and Hialeah as well as the Tri-Rail, a commuter rail line linking Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach.

River Landing is being developed by Urban-X Group, a Miami-based real estate company headed by Andrew Hellinger and Coralee Penabad. For nearly 13 years, Urban-X successfully sought to reshape this long-time overlooked submarket of Miami’s urban core. They challenged their team to build a sense of community starting with elegant architecture, inviting retail, residents and the community to enjoy an open environment along the shores of the Miami River. The end result is a full service live-work community of offices, shops, restaurants, luxury apartments and access to the riverfront.
