The Miami Herald reports:
The first phase of the mixed-use project, scheduled to open in early 2017, will include a 263-unit residential tower with views of the Everglades and a 480,000-square-foot mall anchored by the luxury cinema iPic Theaters, as well as two hotels, an apartment building and office space. It will be centered around a 21-acre park.
Completing the massive development, called Metropica, could cost more than $1 billion.
“We’re creating a downtown for southwest Broward,” said developer Joseph Kavana. The project’s neighbors include the 350-store Sawgrass Mills mall and the BB&T Center arena.
