Miami River’s New Restaurant Row and a New Moe’s

The 25,500-square-foot restaurant space on the ground floor can be divided into seven concept restaurants, including fine dining, fast casual, café or bistro, and family-style dining. River Landing Shops & Residences, a mixed-use development rising just west of downtown Miami, will anchor one of the few waterfront restaurant rows in South Florida.
“This is a strategic location for a restaurant hub because it serves the second largest health district in the United States, provides a remarkable waterfront experience to the community and is accessible from the water, nearby highways and mass transit,” said Andrew Hellinger, a principal with Coral Gables-based UrbanX Group. Hellinger and partner Coralee Penabad are developing River Landing. “During the planning process, we met with neighbors and city officials. Everyone agreed that the area was starving for well-positioned concept restaurants on the water.”
The two-million-square-foot development includes an urban multi-level retail center with Publix Super Markets, Burlington Stores, TJ Maxx, West Marine, Ross Dress For Less, AT&T, Chase Bank, and Hobby Lobby as tenants. It also includes 528 market-rate apartments, more than 2,200 parking spaces, green space, and a 50-foot-wide linear park along the riverfront to welcome the community. River Landing, at 1400 North River Drive, is scheduled to open in early 2020.
“Three important factors set us apart from other developments: the expansive riverwalk and green space, convenient access and ample parking,” added Hellinger. “The area’s daytime population and the river’s growing popularity as a dining and nightlife destination are generating a lot of interest.”
