MIAMI’S NEW HOT SPOT: Miami’s Design District is gaining some heavyweight fashion retailers. According to a spokeswoman for Dacra, a Miami-based real estate development firm that owns much of the neighborhood’s property, Marni plans to open its first freestanding store in Florida in a 2,800-square-foot space near to Art Basel Miami Beach in early December. And following the flight of many independent businesses from South Beach to the Design District’s NE 40th Street, Tomas Maier plans to close his eponymous South Beach store and reopen at 170 NE 40th Street in November. The 6,000-square-foot, freestanding building, which formerly housed a Kartell showroom, more than doubles the size of his original store, which will enable Maier to display more accessories, home items and books. Another U.S. store is slated to open this spring, but Maier wouldn’t disclose the city. The only other fashion retailers currently in the Design District area are Y-3 and En Avance, a men’s and women’s designer boutique that relocated from South Beach’s Lincoln Road in 2008.
