MIAMI (WSVN) - After four years of construction, the Brickell City Centre finally opened its doors to the public Thursday.
The open air space, cooled by a climate ribbon to harness the bay breeze, was well received by visitors. “It looks like it’s gonna be great, fantastic,” said one man.
“Miami needed this,” said one woman.
Many were impressed with the building. “I love it, I absolutely loved it,” said one woman.
The $1 billion dollar building was built to keep Miami’s downtown area booming with business.
Rapper Pitbull performed at the Centre’s VIP opening Wednesday.
The building holds more than just stores. Also inside are restaurants, condos and hotels. “This is a transformational project and it is transforming Urban Miami,” said Stephen Owen, the president of Swire Properties.
Days before the opening, stores like Sas Fifth Avenue also gave VIP tours. “With all of the excitement going on in the centre and in the city, it’s happening,” said Ramona Messore, the vice president and general manager of Saks Brickell.
