Bringing Luxury Shopping to the Southeast: Bal Harbour Shops Goes on Pop-Up Tour
Renowned for its luxurious and tropical shopping experience, Bal Harbour Shops is expanding beyond Miami to cities in the Southeast. Known for its upscale retail offerings, the high-end destination will launch its pop-up tour in Raleigh, North Carolina, before making stops in Tequesta, South Walton County, Grenville, Southeast, and Northwest Florida.
For the first time outside of Miami, customers can indulge in Bal Harbour Shops' signature style in a 17,000 square feet space designed by LOT-EK. Matthew Whitman Lazenby, president and CEO of Whitman Family Development, expresses excitement about sharing the tropical luxury experience with the world beyond Bal Harbour's boundaries.
The pop-up activation will feature a curated selection of luxury brands like Tiffany & Co, Balmain, Frette, Assouline, and James Perse. In addition, a dining option seating 150 people, complete with a full bar and lounge, will be available. The pop-up space will exhibit Bal Harbour Shops' iconic palm tree motif, bright green monstera leaf signature style, and tranquil elements such as Koi ponds and fountains.
The Unrivaled Success of Upscale Shopping Destinations
Luxury flagships and retail spaces are experiencing unprecedented demand, defying expectations for a sector slowdown. Malls are stepping up their game by attracting luxury brands and offering unparalleled shopping experiences. A recent report by JLL reveals that 38% of new stores opened by luxury retailers were in shopping malls. Leading the pack is Bal Harbour Shops, the first shopping center in the U.S. to exclusively host luxury brands. It has become a magnet for iconic, high-end names in the industry.
The appeal of Bal Harbour Shops extends beyond its impressive brand portfolio. It has created a unique atmosphere by blending modernity and greenery, resulting in a luxurious yet serene environment. The venue's ongoing success has allowed it to secure a $550 million loan in 2019 for an ambitious expansion plan. Nearly 250,000 square feet are being added to the open-air shopping center to cater to the demand for larger store spaces that offer an immersive, premium experience. Gucci recently debuted its expanded store spanning two floors, showcasing Bal Harbour Shops' commitment to providing an exceptional shopping destination.
Breaking new ground, Bal Harbour Shops is taking its shopping experience beyond Miami through a pop-up tour. The Access Pop-Up will bring a highly differentiated, premium shopping and lifestyle activation to cities lacking similar offerings. This move solidifies Bal Harbour Shops' position as a leader in luxury retail experiences. With a dedication to delivering elevated retail and lifestyle experiences, Bal Harbour Shops continues to set the standard for luxury mall operators in the U.S.
