Esplanade at Aventura

This project re-envisions a property that currently holds a Sears full-line store, Sears Auto Center and adjacent surface parking. The new plan, submitted to the city of Aventura in November 2014, is a contemporary open-air collection of shops and restaurants. The new plan creates a vibrant outdoor shopping and entertainment village that will complement the existing Aventura Mall - one of the most successful in the nation - directly adjacent to the property, yet provide its own unique destination. Explanade is an example of Sears Holdings' strategy of re-purposing existing real estate assets, transforming one of the largest retail real estate portfolios in the United States.
