Metropica Announces Shake Shack, Anthropologie, Free People Will Be Part Of Sunrise Development
Now that Metropica’s officially underway, the massive Sunrise development has released the names of some of the stores, restaurants and entertainment options locals can expect to find there.
The 65-acre site, located right next to Sawgrass Mills Mall and the BB&T Center, is set to welcome Anthropologie, Free People and Kendra Scott, along with upscale gaming center Kings Bowl and iPic luxury movie theater.
Food options will include popular New York-based burger joint Shake Shack, local Mexican chain Salsa Fiesta, Peruvian gastrobar Pisco y Nazca, and culinary shop Oil and Vinegar.
Developers broke ground on Metropica’s first residential tower on Tuesday. The 28-story condo building, called YOO at Metropica, will consist of 263 luxury units and 10 penthouses. Prices start at $300,000.
Once completed, the entire Metropica development will encompass more than 4 million square feet of retail, residential and entertainment space. (To put that into perspective, Sawgrass takes up 2.2 million square feet.) The mixed-use space will include eight residential towers, a 2.5-acre park, beach club, soccer fields and more.
The goal is to attract both tourists and locals to the area.
"[O]ur team is positioning Metropica to serve as a downtown for all of West Broward and the neighboring area with world-class shopping,” Erick Collazo, vice president of development for Metropica Holdings, LLC., said in a statement.
A Metropica representative said the project will take about five to seven years to complete.
