The Citadel, an all-day dining, shopping, working and lifestyle destination surrounded by Miami’s historic Little River neighborhood, announces its next wave of confirmed tenants that will elevate the city’s lunch and dinner experience while serving a culinary makeover to South Florida’s food scene in a uniquely collaborative setting.
Scheduled to open Winter 2017, the collaborative lifestyle space will embrace its original function as a Federal Reserve Bank to become a protective yet welcoming collection of Miami’s creatives and artisans. The property will consist of a first-floor food hall, service-oriented mezzanine, retail spaces, radio and production studios, and rooftop entertainment oasis and bar. Entercom Communications, the fourth-largest radio company in the U.S., will occupy the third floor as a studio and production space. MADE at The Citadel, a cultural hub that has altered Miami’s co-working scene is located directly across the street, bringing a constant flow of patrons and growth to the neighborhood and The Citadel.
